bit of this and that



Yesterday I went to see an exhibition up the road in Highgate at Behind the Monkey - titled Red Shoes - obviously there are others than me who covet red shoes. The artist is Jude Cornuel - she has embroidered lots of red shoes to be enjoyed. Some very interesting ones too.

Here are 2 pics of where we go for our bbqs and picnics by the Swan River - you wouldn't really think there is a city out there would you?

The top one looks down the river to the city and the bottom one in the other direction where ian can watch planes land. The other night when we arrived ti light the bbq there was a guy who had come up the river in his boat and had plugged his tv into the plug and was watching some programme. My feeling is that there is never much worth watching on tv at home, let alone taking it with me.

Just catching up on your lovely blog. You've been busy as usual. I hope your burned fingers have healed by now.

I love red shoes, too.

I love red shoes as well, Dale, the exhibition sounds fascinating. Love the photos of the river - why bother going to a park if all you want to do is watch TV? Do you have to take your own BBQ or are they provided? Cheers, Robin

Love the look of those shoes - if only I had the sort of feet and legs to go with them!! The river views are lovely - no wonder you like to go there for picnics and bbq's. Sounds as if your TV programmes are as bad as ours - good job we have other interests. I can't say I would bother to take a TV on a picnic - it rather defeats the object.

as Heather aid defeats the purpose I agree

Dale, I don't know if you subscribe to WOW but this month there is an article on how to Rust dye which I thought was rather apt in light of your present theme - I love it. Re: the TV man - some people just can't live without the media!! I agree, the river is lovely. Gill

Dale, I've loved red shoes ever since I was a little girl living in Glasgow. My Nana brought me back a pair of red leather shoes from London! I thought I was the "bees knees" !!!
