culture vulture

Trip A: to Calne library to listen to Katie Fforde ( talk about her writing and her most recent book. She was inspiring because she was lovely and gracious and looks like my one of my aunties. I went with some friends and we were lucky enough to spend some time with her and her equally lovely husband in one of Calne's finest hostelries. I don't think I've ever been in such close proximity to a 'proper' writer unless you count dancing next to one of the Fiennes brothers at Port Eliot in the summer (that's another tale).
Trip B: if that's not enough culture for me in one week, today S & I went to sunny Bath to see the Blue & White show at the Victoria Gallery (
Kaffe Fassett's quilts, paintings and needlepoints (, Candace Bahouth mosaic shoes and Carole Waller's silk paintings and installations It was small but perfectly formed. It made me want to run to the fabric shop and buy cotton squares and triangles and hexagons - oh my! As my camera isn't working though I had to find something blue & white in my old photos folder - please see above.
So, back at home, I am waiting for the toad in the hole to bake and looking forward to a peaceful evening in front of a dvd. My beloved is away for the night. I don't like it much when he's not here. I don't sleep too well.
