The Seal Mother
When I was a little person my Mummie read me this book a lot. She never left me to return to her seal people leaving me to an uncertain land dwelling future but I have a longstanding knowledge of selkies (and the seductive nature of tweed). ANYwhore! When Mary and I lived in York we went to Selkie every single day to watch things that we wanted and to wait for them to go on sale (which mostly they never did), discover awesomely great new designers and clothing and occasionally breakdown and buy something. We liked it a lot. I miss them BUNCHES. I fantasize that next time I have to take the GNER from Uncle D's in Hampshire to my grandmother's in Edinburgh I will stop in York and buy everything in Selkie. Since I live in Mississippi I can just pretend.
