About World of Wearable Art (WOW) last Tuesday: Sally and I were two tiny fish in a stadium full of human sardines! WOW was a beautiful evening treat though, despite the cramped conditions we found ourselves in. Wow, indeed. How to describe it? It was rather surreal, and glorious, and there was so much to take in.
The colours and sounds danced around my eyes and ears, teasing; they hit me like sudden smells, at once strong and transient. A pop-up castle book. Racing wings. A royal family. Grannies swimming in the dark. A violinist with an endless black ocean for a skirt. Red circus. Tumbling toys. Acrobats on poles, acrobats somersaulting across the stage. Feathers. Metal. Microwave. Roses. Leather. Bizarre bras. Pulsing energy. Rhythm. Dreams. It was spectacular!
(I can’t imagine how much work went into putting it all together!)
Food-wise, I’ve been writing blog posts in my head – then discarding them by nightfall, with sleep taking precedence over blogging. Right now, I’m very sleepy, but it’s rather fun composing a post while listening to Gregory Lemarchal singing in French.
I feel as though I haven’t been doing too much cooking. In between enjoying passionfruit creme brulee & eggs benedict with homemade hollandaise at Daph’s place over the weekend, and eating cheeky cornflakes/other yum yum things with Dave, I’m not sure what exactly I have been eating/making!
Some noodles (I still can’t cook Asian food well, sadly).
Barbequed cheesy sausages and chickpea salad and cookies and prawn bites and more, with my flat full of friends and friends-of-friends.
French fries and a gushing sandwich under showers of sunshine, whilst catching up with Herman.
So, I usually start my blog posts with a quote, but tonight I’ll end with one. All higgledy-piggledy and stuff, like my sleepy self. Goodnight!
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

The World of Wearable Art sounds like a ton of fun. Its something I would have enjoyed I think. I LOVE the Ronald Dahl quote.
