Friday, March 18

I went to the Coliseum


 a building so gorgeous that I was dazzled at once when I walked in and then double-dazzled by the show -   Akhenaeton.

The night out was a treat offered by a dear friend who slipped some salmon pink silk culottes into my handbag while we were sipping Chardonnay in the Coliseum bar -  she'd found them in a charity shop up north and thought they were very 'me'

here's a trailer for the show



In other news 

I have moved to an über-trendy location in Hackney, the local butcher shop is fitted with mahogany-faced refrigerated cupboards - in the evening it becomes a restaurant where people sit on high stools at the marble chopping counters sucking bone marrow, discussing chitterling and comparing face-hair products.

The new cats are excitable blonde bushbabies, bouncing off furniture and leaping improbably high heights as they stalk and pounce on each other. We are housed in a heavily securitised city loft within sight of a long-established eel-pie shop  - the sort that used to serve people who worked on slagheaps or collected nightsoil for a living.

  1. Oooohhhh! I hope Akhnaten comes here. That looks awesome. I'm a big fan of that period of Egyptian history and of Glass.

  2. The paragraph about the butcher made me snort out of my nose whose hairs btw I had to clip with a scissors before I went out into the meat world last weekend. As for the opera I was sitting in my car with my windows down listening to Donizetti's L'Elisir d'amore the radio turned full blast for the enjoyment of the neighbors and I was thinking about how I never liked opera until I saw it in the meat world and was then bowled over for life. xo
