The House On The Marsh*

Work hard at Pilates. Michael the teacher says it’s #NoRestFeb and indeed, we don’t rest. Shoulder and back feel better after Pilates.

Purchase The Sunday Times and some more coffee and sparkling water and milk. My cousin is Entertainment Editor Of The Sunday Times Style and this week Billie Piper is on the cover, who I love. She’s starring in the new David Hare television thing Collateral with Carey Mulligan.

This person is lying abandoned in the street so I lug him home and put all my bird food in him:

Isn’t he beautiful.

Arrive home just in time to give Suzy a quick cuddle before she goes out for lunch, and to watch Cameron Norrie lose his Davis Cup match. Spain beat us but we’ll be seeing more of that young man in the future: he’s played brilliantly all weekend.

It is very cold today so crank up the heating in the flat and now, magically, am warm. Parentals and fluffy monster have icicles forming on them. Probably. It’s so freezing there.

Meditate and sleep.

Am reading this:

It’s wonderful. I want to be a Bright Young Thing in the 1920s. Life is cruel.

Watch Ski Sunday which is very exciting, in Stockholm. Winter Olympics start on Friday! Woohoo! Love the Winter Olympics.

Now am going to make supper and watch last night’s Midsomer Murders whilst knitting.

Without even retuning television, have discovered Channel Eighty One which is called Talking Pictures and has old films on it. Which is exciting.

Attached photo is Pilates outfit.

Happy Sunday everyone!

*1920. British film based on the 1905 novel The House By The River by Florence Warden. In the book, Charlie Chan had to solve a murder involving feuding brothers. In the film he is sidelined to a story about a stolen treasure chest with Allene Ray and Walter Miller in the main roles. Frank Leon Smith wrote the screenplay and Spencer G. Bennet directed.

    I once wrote a fan letter to Harold Acton, in 1990. I sent it by 2nd-class post so it probably never got as far ass Tuscany

      That’s a shame! Let’s make a time machine and go back to the 20s?

        Yes let’s! On the condition we go back to the Bright Young Things and not Peaky Blinders!
