Tea for Three

Last night Emma and I caught with a friend. We had dinner at Purple Peanuts, a great Japanese cafe in Collins Street. Such fantastic, cheap, fresh food. It was great to spend the night chatting, not worrying about the time, just shooting the breeze, kicking back and drinking tea. Lovely.

Down Pilot.

Do we need another Jane Eyre? Probably not.
Will I go and see it?
Yes I will. I think Dame Judi Dench will make a wonderful Mrs Fairfax.

If you'd like to watch a bit about the making of the new Jane Eyre directed by Cary Fukunaga starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassenbender, light your candle, unlock your door and go here:
Autumn is here.

It slowly nudged out our fizzer of a summer. There were a few stand-out days but all in all, the season of sun and sea was a mixed bag.

I was sitting on the train this morning, taking photos with my iPhone and thinking about how the cool shiftings of the seasons always make me think about starting new projects.

1. I might start a new blanket. Lots of cream and colours.

2. I might make another book (Remains of the Day).

3. I might learn how to knit socks (unlikely). But I might.
