To The Wallpaper Museum. And London?

Off dahn south tomorrow, to the land of oast houses, and a certain house styled as a non-ironic 1950's throwback. Yes, an afternoon and an evening with my dad, which will be lovely, and I will put my fingers in my ears when he tells me yet again that I've filled his kettle The Wrong Way. He has a big birthday soon, and I'm hoping I've managed to find him three things which don't elicite the directness that was the response I've had from him once or twice of "what did you get me that for?".

After that we're kicking our heels round London for a bit. This time around its a bit tricky thinking where to take 2 boys who are getting increasingly less possible to impress. They've never let me forget the time I wouldn't let them in the Apple store. We found out the next day that one of my friends had been in there at exactly that time, and she had stumbled on a Mighty Boosh promo event... I'm thinking a sweep around the low-culture bits of the V&A. Though obviously we have absolutely no expectations of spotting Noel Fielding...

He is a bit phwoarrrr isn't he - and totally bonkers. Did you see Buzzcocks, with Lorraine Kelly, this week? No idea what we'll end up doing in London - nothing ever works out as planned; we sort of go with the flow of the day...xx

Helga - nooooo, your life is full enough not to lose out by not seeing The Boosh. Noel would love all your boots and shoes though:) xx

YaH - oh the joys of watching people that you know from tv doing some mooching. The boyfriend used to live in Crouch End; practically rubbed noses with actors every weekend at the local pool. Up here, nadda...
Hope the situation with your friend's daughters is working out ok - bloomin' thick skin called for. xx
