Been into London today, first to see Quaker tapestry panels exhibited at Friends House, then to the Southbank Centre to see the Moomintroll exhibition.
A perfect day to be in the capital, not wet, not hot, not cold.

Quite an enjoyable trip to the supermarket this morning - 2x13-month old kids certainly liven the place up a bit! They are wonderful at causing mayhem then laughing - and all the staff seemed to laugh with them.

We got back 20 minutes ago and from the current sound level I think they have both worn themselves out and are probably soundly asleep.

Bliss!

So jealous you're in Alnmouth. I love the look and noise of the eider ducks that are so common up there and that Northumbrian coast. You should even be able to find clear skies to see the Perseid meteor shower.

Tonight's entertainment is The Committee, a musical based on the Kids Company hearing, which sounds interesting. The reviews are not so positive, but I work with quite a few people who lost their jobs when Kids Company went down, so there's a personal involvement.

Hmm. I should never have said the weather in Northumbria was better than in the south. It's been raining on and off all day and none too warm (for a soft southerner, anyway). But we had a lovely drive all around Hexham and Heavenfield and Warkworth, even if the Cheviots had all disappeared in the mist.

I am in New York City, on a weekend of curiously glorious weather. It is neither humid nor rainy nor hot, and the garbage workers are not on strike (as so often happens in the height of summer.) It is just about perfect here, except that The Donald is returning to his DArk Tower today.

Yup. It was an event held in the grounds of former stately home, Canon Hall. There were pre-film kids activities and stalls selling tat and food. You've not lived till you've seen someone dressed as a velociraptor dancing to 80's pop hit 'Walk the Dinosaur'.

The only problem was how cold and windy it was once the sun went down. Everyone was wrapped up in blankets and sleeping bags. I had to have a hot crepe to keep my hands warm [Biased]

The concert was broadcast on the telly: the performance of the Concerto was phenomenally good, possibly the finest I've heard.

We went, on Saturday (and almost by accident) to Llanthony Priory - as far as I know the only ancient ruin with a pub in it (allegedly the oldest bar in Britain). Two sorts of local draught Cider were on offer, so of course we had to carry out some Comparitive Testing.

We dashed to Larger Local Town this morning for a bit of shopping and then there was a bit of an accident at a major junction and the whole town ground to a halt! It took an hour for the bus to travel the 2 kilometers from the bus station to the main highway then only half an hour to get us home to the village!

All good fun.

I also got a Christmas Card in the post this morning - from last Christmas! In fairness it was posted a bit late...

Total pain about the luggage Uncle Pete, but at least Crawley is just a short step to Gatwick to pick it up. You had one of those perfect London summer days yesterday. Warm, sunny but not too hot or humid. We had friends staying for the weekend, and had lots of walks and chat. Great to catch up with what we've all been doing.

Uncle Pete, you seem to be having something of a rotten visit to Ukland - hopefully things will improve soon. The weather over the next few days is predicted to be a mixture of sun and showers (now there's a surprise!), so pretty typical for August.

Is it possible to pick pickled peppers or does one rather pick peppers for pickling?

The public has a right to know!

This morning as I arrived downstairs I was greeted by the twins rushing out and grabbing my legs in high excitement at just seeing me! A very nice welcome. The others are now off on a jaunt and I shall be left in peas [pieces?] for the day - a consummation devoutly to be wished!

No peppers were picked, pickled or otherwise. Just runner beans, blackberries and some yellow tomatoes, significantly less alliterative produce.

We had friends visiting at the weekend and they bought some lovely runner beans and courgettes from their allotment, plus a jar of homemade marmalade, which was yummy. It is half making me want an allotment again, but I don't thnk there are any near enough to where we live.
I'm off to Manchester tomorrow for an 'adventure'. Going to see Elizabeth Gaskell's house and going to the launch of the first novel by someone I used to work with. I can't remember the last time I went anywhere on my own, it's making me feel very grown-up!

Aaa! It is the major thing I failed to do when last I was in Britain, visiting Gaskell's house!!!

When you go, would you mind scouting around and seeing if they offer such a thing as a floor plan of the house? I searched in vain on the museum's web site, but it may be in the handouts or material they give to visitors. If you can get me one, pm me!

Yes, it looks rather a nice place, straight out of one of her novels.

I see that one can get married there w.e.f. 30th August this year...not sure what Mrs. G. would have made of that.

There are floor plans online, if you Google 'elizabeth gaskell house plan' and select 'Images'.

Back in Edinburgh now after leaving Orkney on a perfect summer day.

One recipe for a happy piglet is being able to get the pendant you wanted from your favourite jeweller although they didn't make it until you suggested it.

Very happy piglet. [Yipee]

If it was the kind of restaurant you were wanting, it looked excellent. (Bit pricey and carnivorous for me, personally.) But, um, it was an "I saw it and thought of you!" moment in that day. Kept me giggling all through my cheap and cheerful veggie packed lunch as I admired the view of the canal before wandering off to collect pictures of more bears.

What canal has bears swimming in it? Sounds a dangerous place, but perhaps they keep it clear of crocodiles. [Devil]
