Play with London to your heart's content!












well, it seems that everybody thinks these days that the city is up for grabs in any way, and by listening to the brexit discussions you quickly get the feeling that it's perfectly ok to move a few things around, like big banks to frankfurt, or why not take london out of the uk (may i secretely admit that that may be one of the better ideas?). even big ben has been messed with, though not by luka (pictured) while he was here (or did you do it, luka - luka??) and is silent for a while, while everybody else is lamenting. so - the question remains (REMAINS!!!) - what did the next picture show? what DID luka do? look on his face and tell me...

Purcell Class Of 2017

here we have the entire cohort of the purcell's school 2017 output, 38 fine budding musicians to be dispersed into the world of brahms, beethoven and prokofiev (whose haunting violin concerto no 2 we heard tonight)and if the recent string of concerts is anything to go by this lot will do rather well... good luck you all!

holy christ, where are we??



hard to believe but good old deptford is becoming fashionable, with a number of reports on its restaurants (£120 for a meal in D??) in the evening standard  and the guardian, with all the pros and cons of gentrification thrown at us. now that deptford can also claim to host lewisham's only cinema (and my husband loosely involved there), it clearly reaches for the stars...

melting pans and pots

Image result for tramshed restaurant london


"the influence of london is greater than might be immediately apparent. london looks outwards — and will continue to do so despite ingerlandland’s wanton self-harm. theresa may’s “if you believe you are a citizen of the world you are a citizen of nowhere” is the assertion of a half-wit.

at my desk today...


... looking grim... don't know why...

Georgie-Porgie



























the latest in daughter's long list of mounts - the rather fabulous george, who, i am told, nobody in the stable really wants to ride because he is rather - shall we say - independently minded? daughter however seems to get along fine - so far, that is...

ARTWORK OF THE WEEK

 TO QUOTE FROM THE PURCELL SCHOOL BULLETIN:


ARTWORK OF THE WEEK
In the build up to her Art Exam, Upper Sixth student Frederike Schroeder-Rossell has decided to tackle the intricate art of leaf carving. It requires delicate precision and patience to achieve a result like this, and we look forward to seeing what further developments she can derive from these
experiments.

Happy Birthday, Conny!

what a starting point!



shia labeouf(from the website)

'Commencing at 9am on January 20, 2017, the day of the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, the public is invited to deliver the words "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" into a camera mounted on a wall outside the Museum of the Moving Image, New York, repeating the phrase as many times, and for as long as they wish.

Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra "HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US" acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.' 


love it!!!

waiting for the...

Wonder why it's getting cold at night
I must be getting old
Looks like I'm gonna have to wait a while
What the hell, I'm bored
What's that there on the railway line
Looks like my old brown shoe
It ain't mine mister, how's that for laughs
Not even how do you do
Wonder what's cooking at the house tonight
Stew and beans
Tune that station, turn that dial
Have another dream
Ain't it stupid how some people stare
Not even how do you do
What's that mister - na na na
I'm just the same as you
Running down the main line
Shaking off the pain
Heading for a bright time
Waiting for a train
Who's that guy, I've seen his face before
Where or when
Must be another face from Suzie's bar
It was different then
Ain't no way that I can fix this up
I've really lost the place
What's that mister, yeah yeah
I hope they fix you face
1. She says you don't make it
2. She said you don't care
3. She said she's unhappy
4. That you're never there
5. She give you the option
6. You sink or you drown
7. Well what's it to be Jo
