antony gormley’s stuff

Ever since seeing Fields for the Britain Isles : the 4,000+ host of terracotta figures : I have been enthralled by Antony Gormley’s sculptural work. The figures are tightly packed into a gallery space and when looking at them I suffered a strange vertigo – like I was a massive giant and they were a vast audience looking at me.

The most famous of his works is the huge and utterly gorgeous Angel of the North at Gateshead, a sexy spiritually powerful asexual iron figure : 20 metres tall, with a 54 metre wingspan and weighing 200 tonnes, and Britain’s largest sculpture. I took this picture on a lovely and bright December day.

I was so impressed that I made a handful of my own terracotta figures at pottery class (I AM that sad old hippy!) – only mine have boobs and hair (!) They sit on a wooden bench at my front door!

Tootsie cat

Saturday…. We’ve adopted a 9-month pretty girl cat, silver grey and sweet and thus far she is called Tootsie (because she holds one little foot daintily in the air). So far she has hidden behind the wine rack in the kitchen and refuses to venture very far at all. She is also not eating. Hope she is better tomorrow.

Sunday…
Tootsie is a bit braver today but still not eating more than a bite. She’s ventured into the lounge and up the stairs. She’s very sweet. She hasn’t met the man of the house, Giacomo, yet though…..
Monday…
She is more settled and has met Giac. Giac is pretty laid back about her but she is growling a bit. They’ll be ok!
Saturday
He set off early to be away a whole week working :-( and I spent some time letting the cats chill out for the first time together on the bed with me. A few niggly growls but nothing to worry about. They’ll cozy up soon!

She’s got a sweet new collar. Pink with glittery stones! Oh gawd – what ARE we doin?

fantasy dinner quests

So… who’d you have to dinner, living or late, boy or girl? What treats would you give ‘em to eat?
I’d go for:
~ Stephen Fry (probably the most interesting and fluffily warm person in the world)
~ Eddie Izzard (clever, funny and a make-up style guru!)
~ Elizabeth I (WHAT a woman!)
~ Agatha Christie (what made her tick?)
~ C S Lewis (he needs to know how much his books meant/mean to me)
~ Lisa Tarbuck (a thoroughly nice and amusing lady)
~ Mozart (was he really a weird guy?)
~ Frank Sinatra (MAYBE, just MAYBE, he’d sing us a song)
~ and of course Me and He!

September 8th – our first party.
invitation.jpg
A sort of house warming for He and Ross. Loads of people came…. Liz, Julie & Stephen, Sue (my cousin), another Sue, Jamie (my brother) & Rebecca, Campbell, Jessica, Richard & Gillian and their children, Heather & Alex, Hillary & Peter, Kate & Martin, Barbara & Allan, Gary, Eleanor, Chris & Fiona, Chrissie, Lolly & Gareth, Rae & Mike, PLUS us 3 of course.
The hors d’oeuvre that the chef at the pub had done for us were lovely – tiny bites of lamb samosas, goats cheese quiches. asparagas & parma ham, chicken liver parfait, salmon & caviar scones. That food plus some wonderful wines and Hector’s wonderful fruit punch made it a delicious treat.
The weather was perfect and the garden got plenty of use.
It must’ve been a good time coz we can’t remember going to bed!

a week in France

Another lovely week with Joke in France.
We did very little and enjoyed the great company, good weather, wine and lots of reading.
On the last day we took the train from Perrigeux to Limoges and spent the afternoon in the botanical gardens in the city before flying home.
