last night i went to see the fantastic mr fox with e at curzon mayfair: it is great! the animation is sort of deliberately bad in places to great effect and as ever with wes anderson films the cast, the music and the design are charming.

some turin cooking:

i am back from turin. sodden with bitter liqueurs. stuffed with tiny sandwiches and other bar snacks. awe-struck at the glories of the alps. thrilled to the very marrow by the honorable schoolboy. happy.

back from edinburgh weekend happy but absolutely shattered. on friday i was pleasantly surprised by the overnight train from euston, and in particular i enjoyed my miniature laphroig in the bar. saturday saw an incredibly windy aurther's seat, a decent fry up and a charming housewarming in ladybank. and somehow today has all been travel and weariness, even unto a lovely rendang in puji-puji.
