The Christmas List

What, I hear you exclaim, could Timothy Belmont ever wish for Christmas? I am quite content with a hearty log fire, abundant drinks and perhaps a few choccies.

Those items excepted, a black iPad 2 would be beneficial. A bespoke Harris tweed three-piece suit; a few pairs of Turnbull and Asser socks; not forgetting a Victorian idiosyncrasy, the black frock coat, a la Sherlock Holmes (!).

A year's supply of Lion fruit pastilles; chocolate brazils; Tanqueray gin; a contribution towards a new model Mercedes-Benz SLK. Perhaps a vacation with convivial company on the Bahamas.

Has one missed anything? No wish to be too demanding. Modest enough list.
