A foggy start to the day

A right pea-souper out my way this morning. Dad, who lives south-eastish of me, didn't get any fog at all. Then the sun came out and it all went away. It's been a pleasant day, albeit cold. I'm sure my British friends will scoff at my definition of 'cold'. It was about 9c as I was walking to a meeting with the boss at the other end of the Zoo this morning.

Took the picture below last night. Shot doesn't do the colours justice.

Well, I won the V and B Iris creamer - Au$13 or thereabouts. And I'm counting down to the end of bidding on an Evening in Paris scent bottle that I really, really need for the play! I also need an Evening in Paris lipstick from the same era - I've seen a photo on Ebay (lost the bid, unfortunately) and I know I've got something similar somewhere here. It used to belong to Mum and I can't for the life of me find it - I wouldn't have thrown it out.

Made a few more props last night - a rosary, set of cufflinks...and something else. Ah, a couple more ration books.

Got a letter from the Post Office today - it had a card inside advising that there are two parcels waiting for me. They've never put the card inside an envelope before; maybe they were getting eaten by snails lurking in letter boxes. I've had that happen before. I emailed the PO today asking if they had any old telegram envelopes lurking in the dust; I think my chances are very slim.

Steven Dillane is to perform a one-man "Macbeth" at the Almeida this autumn." He'll be knackered!
