So I got knocked off my bike a couple of months ago, it was not fun, it took two months exactly for my knee to get back to normal and when I got back on my bike I found that it was knacked and too far to fix.  So I gave it away and got this little lady from an ad in the newsagent. She belonged to a sweet old Irish chap round the corner.  Rohan doesn’t like her as he rode her a few blocks and found her character a little unreliable, inconsistent and independent of the wishes of the pedaler, all true…BUT ISN’T SHE CUTE!  (and perfectly fits in the little gap on the train)

OOh it was fun!  Lots of sweet people and children, very much a family midsommer party.  We had all the traditional Swedish food and booze and some English and Polish too.  The best thing was we made stong – like a may pole but looks a bit like a cross.  We were all extremely fertile running around it. Did the traditional songs – about frogs and girls and musicians – also did the Hokey Kokey, ALL of the verses, just me and Gwenan knew all the words (Rohan was indispose momentarily) and only a few knew all the words to the Swedish songs. Always funny to sing songs in other languages and when you don’t know them you just have to look around at each other and smile and nod and perhaps hum and lah. I wonder if the missionaries had that experience at any point?

Clearly I am not meant to know when last post is.

Perhaps this post box is the doorway to one of the other bubbles out there….I’m going to risk it and post my provisional license replacement form.  Maybe I’ll be able to drive in another universe.  Some kind of ice planet.

So nice to meet Rosannie in town,  we met at Tower Bridge, one of those sunny days when you really love living in London.  This bridge is amazing, it opens like a Christmas gift, I always imagine flying over the gap in an aston martin. Anyway we wandered down at the marina and saw the fancy boats, went to the Samuel Smiths called Captain Kidd , which is a cheap, tasty, good and friendly pubs along the river…I think it would be full of tourists it they ventured a wee bit east.  Then we dashed in the  in Wapping Art Project a show by Yohji Yamamoto.  Don’t look up the Wapping website, it’s unusable.  Also very loud echoey music so we didn’t have a drink in the cafe, we are clearly too then not enough now. However this installation was great and the idea of this place in Wapping..near Shadwell, off the beaten track is very commendable and the building is very cool.

The show took my breath away, you could row a boat around this black water with a giant dress like a lit magic lampshade, the movement revealed the water which until then looked like another giant inverted dress. It’s all in the dark, the only light is in the hooped skirt.  The water bottom goes on for ever. Very beautiful.

Always fun to find half eaten snacks and coffee lying around right?
