Carnival is over for another year and today is well and truly autumn. As we do a Kate and Leo from Titanic and scream 'I’ll never let go!' to summer, let’s remember one last time just how great Carnival was this weekend – as seen from the POV of fabulously feathery masquerader Jude Brosnan.

Carnival 2015, you were amazing. Those of us who made in into work today apologise for bringing in ALL the glitter. We’ll just stand over here and finish dutty whining. What’s that? We can’t hear you, our ears are still ringing.
