O.K. I've had The Cold and The Cough . Nef and I have sewn the curtains .
There are even elegant little extras like towel rails and loo roll holders installed . So it was time to rejoin Society . .
Last week I went to an exhibition of late 19th , early 20th century paintings at the Groninger museum ... a sort of Carl Larsson + affair which was rather nice , if not earth shattering .This painting definitely struck a chord !
A spot of shopping and seafood noodles at Wagamama rounded it all off nicely and reminded me just how nice it is to Get Out . Both winter and the move have gone on quite long enough . So much so ,that Friend and I are going to the Collectors' Fair in Utrecht this weekend , having sworn to each other that NOTHING will be bought , however tempting . We'll see ... I've never yet left this event empty-handed .
Oh yes ,and I'm getting to know our new neighbours . The 80 year-old next door apologised if she was keeping us awake at night .... she didn't sleep well herself , she explained ," so always took her boombox to bed with her" .
