The Big Smoke

We managed to squeeze in a weekend in London, Hakasan was a big hit with the chopstick novices...

We saw the Joana Vasconcelos exhibition - smashing dogs were a big hit - and Polly Morgan, 'Psychopomps' at Haunch of Venison.

Lots of Tree House ideas at the V&A '1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces'.

The Japanese house has a little stove and is for drinking tea, exactly what we need.

We round off the trip at the Imperial War Museum, fabulous exhibitions, appalling cake.

We are now in week 6 of 8 weeks school holidays and we have been busy, busy, busy...

I have been cracking on with the Masters, the above is not in fact a large hat?

Miss 'Flamingo' Belle has been to Stagecoach - everything is so dramatic in her little world...

...this is what happens when you find a pair of footless tight purchased in error by your mother!
The big brother has done guitar, self defence, tennis, archery, a week's cricket and of course the best activity of all a trip to the library.

Glasgow via Woolfest

Several weeks ago we paid a flying visit to Glasgow via Woolfest...

'The Doctor' was out.

We went to The Burrell Collection - brilliant playground - and saw some performance drawing...

and wildlife carved from a tree trunk.

Louis enjoying the designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, these little alcove seats were for knitting or reading according to the audio guide.
