Beautiful Things

Went to see Romeo and Juliet at the Middle Temple Hall. The show was OK although Romeo was just a pretty boy and Juliet's mouth was too wide and she clumped around a lot. But the Middle Temple itself is just stunning. I have never been round the back of Fleet Street and to stumble across these beautiful cobbled quads with their great plane trees and gently plashing fountains and first rate Georgian buildings is fabulous.

A peppy young American came round from the Tate to give a talk on Cy Twombly. He (the lecturer) was from Virginia, as was Cy Twombly, a fact that he mentioned some 6 or 7 times during the course of the talk. There were also some excellent biscuits.

Goulash and mash for dinner - or goumash, as the kids call it. Curly said she liked the goo, but not the lash. And who can blame her?

I expect you like receiving the goo and giving the lash, Phiz.

I had a dream about you last week, Phiz. You were your usual goddess-like self.
