Raising An Eyebrow

‘BEFORE we go on, let’s just nip those rumours right in the bud. Like you, we’ve seen the picture of Lady Henrietta Palmer’s newborn son Alexander and put two and two together to make Colin Farrell.

So we won’t . We will demur and move on.

Instead, we’ll take a gander at her new house in South Africa. Like many houses in that country, it’s made of old Persil boxes and rubber tyres, albeit cunningly disguised to look like hard wood, chintz and brick.
