Be Mine

My sister-in-law has been looking at everything letterpress for Theo's room. She also stumbled on this sweet 14th February card.

Rooftop NY flat

Flat 14 Office/kitchen

Has procrastination come to this? What next, pictures of my pesto pasta supper? Forgive me, but I had to tell you about my space solution in my flat. For the past year, the living room table has been for plates/laptop/post. From today it will only be for plates + post as I have created a little kitchen nook which is the new work space. It has Nigel and Nigella recipe books on the ledge and The Little Prince painted spinning top for distraction. Some space arrangements instantly work. My first idea was to convert the hallway cupboard into an office. That would most definitely not have worked.

Graphic illusion

Laura back briefly from Amsterdam: I told my parents I was going to a Bridget Riley exhibition. They told me to careful with my eyes.
Me: I'm too mesmerised to move. Also, I think I may have just seen a dragon coming out of the wall.

Bridget Riley at the National Gallery until May.
