By way of a roundup

So what the hell have I been doing while I haven’t been blogging? Well I’ve been away from home with my work – travelling to Hamburg and Hovik (it’s near Oslo) for meetings, training, videos and stuff. I could elaborate but I promised myself this blog would never be about work, but I will tell […]

Hit & Miss @ Tate Britain

Siggy and I didn’t go to see the “British Folk Art” exhibition – the picture of the chicken and my imaginings of a load of dull pots and poor paintings put me off. We went instead to see the permanent collection that we so rudely ignored last time we came – the delights of John […]
