Just something I have up mine sleeve…
a little something…

I was meant to be doing something else far more ‘important’, but decided I needed to carve a candle we had picked up from that most marvellous of things – Freecycle.
The candle carving was crap, but the left over wax shavings were fascinating to look at and reminded me of spinal vertebrae -
So I decided to make a dragon from the pieces – of course.
Here’s the head,
here are the front feet (which I love),
And here is the whole picture. I don’t really love all of it, I made the wings in a hurry, and I began feeling procrastination restlessness. But it has a certain je ne sais quoi nevertheless.

More sky theatre…
I like the ideas of collecting sunsets. How many sunsets will you see in your life?
and some grass,
every day needs natural wonders.

I bought some lychees for my love, and I was really surprised how cheap they were, the man kept scooping more and more into the brown paper bag, and I felt really happy. (This was at the fruit stall outside Euston Square tube stop). Unfortunately I soon discovered why they were so cheap. They were sharp and unripe. Boo.
So I decided to make a lychee cake. But not before some playing -
Then I made the lychee cake, and my god it was the most delicious cake I have ever made! It was slightly stodgy and moist without being heavy, with banana but not too much so that it tasted like banana cake, just a hint, and a bit of coconut milk, and a buttery taste from the butter, and not too sweet, just right, with the divine taste and texture of lychees which are indescribable, and maybe even my favourite fruit.
I don’t have a picture of the cake so you’ll just have to imagine, and measure your drool in – what is the universal measure of drool?

My cat was in heaven in front of my gas fire, so I decided to play…
playing made him stretch like a superhero,
I’m sure this photo is pre-yawn,
then stretch again,
ah, cat ownership…

Pieces of frozen pond, which my brother discovered. There are pond bits, sticks and bubbles frozen inside it -
here is the point (what we’re all looking for…)

I woke up on the morning of the Twelfth Night, and was greeted by this sight at the front door -
Just the most perfect mise en scène for the day. It astonished me.
I also liked this snow-cake-plant-top:
also perfect somehow,
