BBC2 waiting for ‘Equator’ to start.
Week off and what a week. Managed to get the dining room painted and decorated c/o Laura Ashley , now the proud owner of a feature wall, i.e. black wallpaper with gold motifs. V tasteful!
Hull Screen with A and L, pre pizza express pizza and onto the main feature, a documentary of the Ballet Russe, two rival troupes dancing in war time America, interviewing many of the octogenarian dancers at a reunion in 2004. All sprightly and some still on the stage, looking back at their dancing days, amazing stuff.
Watching much proms this week. Mahler’s 5th a highlight. Such great performances and orchestras, all great apart from John Sessions cannot do live telly anymore, completely lost the plot last night.
Nephew Rs engagement party to A last night, still talking about a family exodus to Spain after the wedding next year!
Off to Manchester tomorrow for some Bank Holiday fun. I’ve been in search of a red shirt all week so one may turn up, although I think I’ve missed the boat as Ant of Ant and dec fame had one on while presenting celebrity golf and the lead singer for Franz Ferdinand had one on at Fridays performance at the Reading festival.
