Bees and hellebores again
Because you can't have too much of a good thing.
Three good things I am full of:
The King's Speech - of course, isn't everyone? First time ever in 18 years acquaintance Tom and I have ever been to the pictures together, had to drag him protesting but he came away as smitten as I was, even though he couldn't hear all of it;
Salley Vickers book of short stories Aphrodite's Hat - came in a parcel from lovely sister, whom I introduced to SV and who now always makes sure I have the latest:
Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances - the first one anyway, ever a sucker for plangent melodies and the slow movement, why didn't I know these before? I look forward to getting up in the morning so I can play it again.
