October is a pleasant, pleasant month...

Figgy Goodness from Borough market...



following a trip to the Rothko Exhibition at Tate Modern...


(for once I agree with the hype... "Rothko is the must-see exhibition of the year"...it is quite something)

Ms D and the Wolf were good enough to take our delightful children overnight Friday (so we could party) and all day Saturday (so we could recover) and so we managed to fit in a fine day out Thameside. Crowded exhibitions and Borough market are so much more fun without smallfry, I have to say it!


October also brought me wonderful gifts from Katy...

Ms Reva is besotted with the "bambi" fabric in the centre - it's super cute

there were also a couple of gorgeous tissue holders (which are now masquerading as a doll pillow and a receptacle for sundry small items while the running noses go unchecked) and two wonderful wooden dolly making kits...all squirrelled away now far from mummy's prying lenses...

but best of all...

A new son, Isaac, for my sister Catherine...(officially part of September but artistic licence permits inclusion in this post)

parcel of knitted goodness is on its way Kate, hope you like it

i LOVE October!

Katy said...

ooooh, a little baby!!! Congrats to Sister Milkwood!!!! Fab name too - it' one of my 'I would like a baby called...' names (I have a few, too many to actually have that many babies. Maybe I should get some pet mice?
So glad the cushion is well liked by the house - the bambi fabric was a teeny tiny scrap I got sent as a swatch when I bought some others. I want a big piece though, so when I track it down I'll let you know what it is!
And did you see my friend whilst at Borough Market? She'll be the one sat on an upturned milk crate outside her house by the market, smoking fags and drinking tea. If you see her on your travels tell her hello from me. Thanks ;)

I adore Rothko! His pieces really must be seen in person to really understand the emotion they carry.

Congrats on your new nephew!
