colds are so much more expensive

...than they used to be. In Days of Yore a cold was an excuse to snuggle down on the sofa with the cats, a pot of tea and High Society. Today, feeling coldy and unwanted at the various social things I had lined up I have spent the afternoon in the study with my credit card, Amazon, iTunes and Britart. I will not end this month (or the next) in credit....

The telly beckons now but I'm not sure I can face Planet Earth as apparently the Polar Bear dies. I still haven't quite recovered from the grieving elephants on BBC Two last week and am certainly too low on tissues to risk too much more Natural Cruelty. At least I still have the one millionth episode of The Archers on Tuesday to look forward to.

He wasn't a very NICE Polar Bear because he was trying to kill a walrus...

Now, I KNOW walruses aren't as cuddly-looking as polar bears -- in fact they're really pretty damn ugly, but that is NOT THEIR FAULT and, besides, this walrus wasn't looking for a fight... I mean even if the polar bear WAS hungry, well so was the walrus - probably - and he didn't go around attacking polar bears, did he? No! Exactly!

Ah... but the bear swam all that way and he was starving. I have to stop watching nature programmes.

uncovering old lath and plaster

This morning this was a blue-painted wall which collapsed in less than two minutes in two almighty thumps revealing all this lovely lath and plaster work. This surely hasn't been seen since 1879 when the house was built and is a rather beautiful piece of handiwork. Sadly it will all be stripped out and replaced tomorrow with something less interesting and which probably won't last nearly as long.... but I am reliably told it has to be done.
And me and the builder are listening mainly to The Silver Seas.

Chelsea has the best hats but Tavistock has the best cakes. I spent more money at the Tavi show...
