The healing power of Austin Reed

This weather has got me thinking, a dangerous activity at the best of times. Being to introspective can be bad for the social life. I don't seem to be the only one suffering from a bit of a malaise, lots of chums have reported a vaguely unsettled feeling recently perhaps it's the weather.

I've returned to my rakish ways when it comes to dating which was surprisingly easy. Although I had burned my little black book when I was decidedly off the market it's not been a struggle to go out and meet new people. The thing is I'm not sure if I really want to meet new people, not in that way.

How ever much I try and think of other things I've still got some stuff I have to deal with first, regarding fathers and grief. It's supposed to take two years to get over something like that and that's quite a lengthy amount of time to be not quite yourself.

It's not been any easy thing to discuss with friends either. Not many of my chums have had to deal with losing a parent yet and so they don't really understand what it is like. Thankfully if you don't have the chums to quite deal with a situation all you really need to do is expand your inner circle of chums a little until you find someone who can sort you out.

Or you can put on a vintage Austin Reed Suit. A light-weight tweed one to be exact and then you will feel so completely and utterly marvellous that well nothing else seems to matter.

It sounds more like indigestion. Losing a parent is hard, but the passage of time makes it easier to focus on the happier memories.

Does the passage of time also help indigestion?
