Up early again...


Dishes done accompanied by acquisitions from the last month on shuffleplay...

Out for breakfast with the EP and Herr Heinichen...


To Stockbridge and Patisserie Florentin..


Tasty...



Post the Oxfam bookshop, where upcoming celebratory cards were purchased, along with a couple of books (see below), to "Popping Up"...

I'd have liked to have this table but over £300 was a trifle steep...


However, new light-shades were purchased on impulse...



At the Shelter Shop, a 4CD set of Fauré's piano works for £3...

Back home, this on the old removed shades...


We got to work...


Result #1...
  

Result #2...


These the purchases from earlier...


The Fauré...


...turned out to be autographed - although, of course, my name is not Anthony...


Some listening and reading...

In the afternoon, booked a trip to Documenta 14 and, hopefully, Jorg Sonnenschein's in the Autumn, to be preceded by a visit to the Mosel valley - we will stay in a house at the top of these stairs...


The picture, of the sculpture, was taken almost 10 years ago...

Spooky...

Later, out to my mum's on a stormy day...

In fine fettle - a year ago she had just been admitted to hospital with pneumonia...

On to Anne's mum's for family tea...

This the view down the back of her bureau -  a strange sound seemed to come from there the other day - no evidence found and fears instead that a tile may have become dislodged from her roof...


Meanwhile, she has recently completed a new painting...


...which is now on the wall beside these previous works...



A talented lady...

Your correspondent enjoyed this chair...


Back home, realised I already have a 4CD set of Fauré's piano music, recorded five years before that purchased this morning...


Oh well..

Lights out on another weekend...

Highlight of the Day : New light-shades, books and music/holiday booked...

Thinkin' of startin' a group called 'My Name Is Not Anthony'. What'd you think?

David Quartet said...

Go for it Stu - what's the line up?

Stuart Cobley said...

Just me and you.

Four days later, I get what you did there...
