Happy St. Swithin's Day

Ten years ago I sent this invite for my St.Swithin's Day party

Of course Billy Bragg tells a tale of lost love in his aptly titled song St. Swithin's Day with these verses:

With my own hands
When I make love to your memory
It's not the same
I miss the thunder
I miss the rain
And the fact that you don't understand
Casts a shadow over this land
But the sun still shines from behind it.

Thanks all the same
But I just can't bring myself to answer your letters
It's not your fault
But your honesty touches me like a fire
The Polaroids that hold us together
Will surely fade away
Like the love that we spoke of forever
On St Swithin's Day
