Your priorities are your own and I'm certainly not going to say whether they are right or wrong. I'd have concentrated the weblog post on the art however! Sadly I will not be able to make that exhibition and it is over two months since I've been to one in London so thank you for reminding me to change my priorities.

Claire

Another good reason to visit. As I recall their soup is excellent too - something will certainly be partaken of!

Lucky you, cakes at the Scottish National Gallery are miles better than the Tate's!
But it was a fascinating exhibition, even if none of the other artists could hold a candle to Picasso.
Bit like the cakes, really!

Sounds an interesting exhibition. I keep a mental register of where to get the best cheese scones: Durham Cathedral leads by a mile and the V&A cafe's Stilton and chive were exceedingly disappointing.

I had a plain scone at Durham Cathedral recently and it was very good.

It is a nice cafe - ages since I've had lunch there, though.

It is fascinating, and I'm so glad I went.

Cornflower

You need to get out more, DP! (says she ...)

Dark Puss

You are right! I'm off to Geneva in about three weeks ;-)

Dark Puss

I have taken your excellent advice to "get out more" and went to see an exhibition at the british Museaum on Spanish drawing, etching, lithography from C15 to Goya. Lots of fabulous technical ability throughout the ages and then finally we got with Goya really outstanding art. He was just in a different class from what went before in Spain (including Murillo, Velasquez etc.) as far as drawing was concerned.

PS I cannot comment on the scones and I did not look in the shop for cushions.

Cornflower

Well done, DP!
