Food, Interior Design, Wardrobe, Summer Holidays.  
Much to my dismay, I must announce that I have that irritating Get Lucky song stuck in my head. This terrible state of affairs is entirely thanks to Danny, who set it as my ring tone when he visited on Tuesday. I'd ask Valentine to take it off for me but I don't want to admit that I've been thoroughly baffled by a bloody smartphone (Valentine, if you're reading and you take it off for me and never mention it in my hearing, I'll owe you something).

Been using the idle time found between reading and ministering to Valentine's damaged extremeties learning new things in the kitchen. Making croissants is not the most infuriating thing I've done in my life, but it was close. Have you ever tried? Hardly worth the effort, though guaranteed to make you appreciative of your nearest boulangerie.

Mulling over redecorating the study at Holland Park. This thought brought to you by the magnificent set design of Hannibal, which I finished watching on Sunday. At a slight loss as to what to do in terms of television watching, despite Ellie's suggestion of True Blood. I did give it a shot but it seemed to be mostly comprised of poor acting and not enough clothes.

Speaking of clothes, I've become inordinately fond of ties. Sadly, ties are not quite as fond of me... they seem to make me look like a homeless person in a way that even slovenly clothes cannot.

And now.. summer holidays. Still need to plan that trip.

Good luck with the ringtone and your holiday from teaching. Earned.

Good luck with your tour. And refusing this cake when you visit.

Who said anything about refusing cake? Better yet, when will I get to prove you so glaringly wrong on this assumption?

You back now? Come up to the big house some time this week if you're free. Bring the dog and the husband if you like - rivers good for swimming at the moment.

Sorry to have delayed on this! Next week? Are you still around? I'd love to monopolize your time for a spell. If I can fight the dog for you.

Sounds good to me, sweetheart. Looking forward.

Can't lie, when I read this the first time, I thought you meant Danny as in Danny Drake, and I saw red and refused rational thought that you have an independent Danny of your own, and no need for me to be callous. Bit on the defensive, hey? I'm an idiot.

My Danny is almost as dense and about twice as fat. Dont tell him I said that if you ever meet him.

Is there anyone as dense as that plodder? Honestly. Your secret's safe with me.

You're asking this of a man who teaches 20somethings for a living.

True, but trust me when I say I'd rather live in a frat house full of them than share a meal with Drake.

How can you like it? It's like Michael Jackson filtered through a layer of treacle. The content is also misleading in the extreme.

Mm, tempting. Dick Turpin?
