Fuck it

 


My pension had some sort of rebate on it, so unexpectedly a few hundred pounds will be coming my way
I thought, I may put it towards my University fees but I’ve already contributed to that pot , so in true Gemini style I said fuck it……the lisping choir awaits.


And so I’m going to see them!!!! With the lovely orchestra and conductor Silvia Sanz Torre of course, presenting a Gala of Zarzuelas! I am off to Madrid for 48 hours to see them at The National Music Auditorium in a months time.

Hey ho

  6. Good use of unexpected money -- you need a little treat for yourself after all your hard work and sacrifice at university this year.

    1. I agree with JayCee. See Picasso's "Guernica" and "The Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch.

  28. Madrid, how exciting, have fun, create these memories while we can. There is a good train from the airport into central Madrid, it is a longer ride than you expect but a good value. Lots of big dramatic paintings in the Prado Museum.

      And please John ,if you see « The Grey House »by Marc Chagal at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid , think to me even if we don’t know each other. One of paintings I should love to have at home.Writing this I realize that the house almost bears your name! ( involuntary) Catherine
