I'm not sure where I saw this today, I'm sorry if it was your blog and I haven't credited you. But this exhibition looks beautiful. From Atoms to Patterns. Pity its so far away... I particularly like the 'atomic' neon light in the foyer of the top image and the cellular wallpaper.

Settling in after almost a month in the new house. There are still strange piles of boxes in the hallway and some odd arrangements that need to be ironed out, but otherwise it's feeling pretty good. Did I tell you that I live around the corner from Julio's? So I've been going there almost every day. So excellent. Working my way through the menu is great fun.

Romy is away. It's only been three days and her presence is missed.

I don't really have much to say today. I'll try again tomorrow.

Good things that have happened/exist so far in June;

- A trip to Sydney which involved sitting on a beach drinking Carona's in the sunshine, singing Karaoke with ten friends in a steamy booth and being entertained by an eccentric millionaire and a level-headed, tall and fetching young man.

- The kindness of course coordinators.

- Psychoanalysis.

- Living in a room that has a balcony and enough room to 'swing a Cat in'.

- A new friend in the guise of a soft toy bear that's form is represented in a correct biological manner (apart from scale of course).

- The Pretenders.

- Cléo de 5 à 7 (1962) d. Agnes Varda

- Moleskine's large 18 month diary (2008-2009)

- a $5 teak side table from Don Bosco's on Sydney Rd.

- the renovation in Northcote that is super dooper exciting and progressing wonderfully.


- Marianne Faithfull's version of 'Ruby Tuesday'

I care not to talk about the bad things. Let me just say that;
I am swirling around like a little sud in a bath of quickly and violently draining water with regard to relationships.
I am falling dreadfully behind with my schoolwork.

I hope you are all well and I hope I can blog more as of now, with the internet working and all...
