Still here ...

just busy. We spent last weekend in Brighton, to see Babybel and VHC's mummy complete her first marathon, in the very creditable time of 3 hours 44 minutes. We also managed a visit to Brighton Museum, where we only had time to look at Julian Bell's work in what looked like a very good exhibition. [And the 20th century furniture as well - we always look at the furniture.] [And a cream tea.] Then on the way home on Monday we stopped for  lunch and a some highly contrasting art at Petworth.

Tuesday was busy too, catching up on what had been neglected over the weekend and a visit to the Watermill for 'A Winter's Tale'. I didn't enjoy this one as much as Henry V, although I did get propositioned by Autolycus [one of the penalties of sitting on the front row.] But it was still a good evening, and as ever the music was excellent.

Wednesday was back to college, and relatively peaceful. I had a helpful tutorial, with some good tips on how to present my work in the degree show. It was good to relax a bit before Thursday, which was a full day looking after Babybel and VHC - not that they are difficult children, but we're out of practice, especially with babies.

So this weekend has been rest and recovery time - a little bit of college work [mostly sorting out stuff for a critique session], a bit of non-college sewing, as I decided that our new yoga mats needed bags,  and a lot of sleeping.
