It all starts calmly enough. On Tuesday night I went to a private view of a friend's (Glaucoma Rosunfate) photography work. I love it, it's strange and surreal and rather magical.
this is my fave, I want a copy! I'm going to be in some of his work soon!
The pub it was held in is in the part of Wycombe I don't tend to visit very often, but it's a great location, pretty much unspoiled, perfect for those with a more intellectual and discerning taste, with tempting sounding nights such as a ukulele night, a literary night and a knitting circle
I talked a lot of art nonsense and gossiped with some old acquaintances. The well dressed guy is a traditional(ish) Romany gypsy.

Then we decided to eat, since we are both food obsessed. David got me to try chicken feet at a Dim Sum restaurant in China town! and I liked them!

she's a bit of an inspiration at the moment!
I'm off to catch up on blogs. This weekend I'll be going to the biannual village Jumble. I'm planning to buy loads of stuff for art projects!
