It's been too long

I do hope there's someone out there who still looks at this silly little blog. I'm afraid I spend much too much time on Facebook and Twitter at the expense of this blog, but I will make an effort, particularly as it can serve me as an aide memoire.

The last couple of months has been full - much coffee-drinking and walking, lunches and dinners out, a performance of "The Threepenny Opera", concerts, etc. At the moment I'm watching the BBC's excellent version of "Little Dorrit" - another book I must read, though it will have to wait until I've finished the giant biography of Darwin I've just embarked upon - it's a marvellous cast and looks wonderful in high definition.

This winter we've actually been getting some proper cold weather, and some rain, too, which is good. Despite the weather I usually manage my walk (and coffee) every day - last week I spent an enjoyable time wandering around the National Gallery, renewing acquaintance with various paintings.

Last week I lunched with RdS and helped AR move house; on Thursday evening I went to Alliance Francaise for the opening of a splendid exhibition of illustrations and paintings by Leigh Hobbs. It was a great turnout with a lot of people I hadn't seen for some time.
