Tempus fugit. Or something.

The reinventors ran away for the weekend to celebrate the practical one's birthday.  As well as drinking fabulously obscure wines in achingly cool bars - one of which was the brainchild of a Masterchef competitor - they found a treasure for Marmalade Cottage.

They've been joined by the ABC test pattern clock.
And for luck, a portrait of Audrey Hepburn on a record.
That's a nail sticking out of her mouth.  As well as the cigarette holder.
