What I really want to do right now is sit down and tell you all about my lovely Fathers' Day in London, but I really must not let myself get distracted from my work. Here is a picture of my two most recent acquisitions, to keep both you and me going. The picture is a beautiful little print of a much larger picture that I saw at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. It is very simple - the same oriental vase from four different sides - but it enchanted me from afar, so I was very happy to be able to buy a dinky copy of it (not too pricey either, thank you very much!). The chair was an outrageous bargain, costing a mere £4 from my favourite junk hoard. I think its previous owners used it as a decorating chair as there are boot scrapes and paint dribbles in places. No matter, I am going to give it a bit of love and a lick of paint so that it can become my desk-chair, when I officially decorate and move into my new office/room of Treacle. I can't wait til I have finished my degree so that I can get on with fun things like decorating, renovating and crafting! Roll on July!
