due to being unfit and trying to walk too far all in one go. I think it was worth it as Roger and I went to the Chihuly Exhibition in New Bond Street on the 27th March.
I took a lot more photos, these were some I liked best. Totally fabulous, went home and sourced a book straightaway. It arrived on the 29th (how about that for service?), and it’s wonderful. I have never noticed the piece of Chihuly in the V&A, but my granddaughter (aged 10) made me feel about an inch high when the book arrived: she said ‘There was some of that where we went to see the spider silk’ (actually she said where we were when Grandad had to talk to the police about the kitten setting the burglar alarm off, but it was the same time and place).
I’m doing well for exhibitions, the AE class went to the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey Street on 2nd April, without Sandra, who had sprained her ankle. I forgot to take my camera, which was a pity. As Sandra wasn’t with us, we had lunch in the café, and took the guided tour, which was most interesting. The exhibition was Post-war Fabrics designed by Fine Artists including Matisse, Picasso and Dali. As Crossrail is disrupting traffic all round London Bridge and Borough High Street, we had to walk about twice as far as usual from the station so my knees didn’t like that either. We came back via Tooley Street, which is further under ordinary circumstances.
