I have a very challenging week coming up. The Spanish health service is excellent but unfortunately means I am reminded every two years to turn up for routine X-ray. Alice has hers on Monday, me on Thursday (I'll miss the group, blast). I have been in both the prostrate clinic and lady X-ray clinic with Alice as moral support. No, no, not at all...I am in the waiting room. But I did go into a consult once as she was very worried. Did I mention the consultant asked which one of us was the patient? Of course I did. I'm still smarting with being mistaken for a bloke.

The sun is hot, the sky shining blue and we saw over two hundred birds flying in a crazy formation. I have no idea what they were.
Oh...and I think I have a tooth on the blink. Please nooooooo.

The wysteria is out in huge armfuls of creamy, violet flowers. The birds are peep, peeping, clouds racing by and here's some shocking photos...

Ominous, purple sky rolling in.
I have this amazing book called "The clothing of the renaissance world." Which is actually Cesare Vecellio's "Habiti Antichi et Moderni." Anyway, it first came out in 1590 and is full of every type of dress that everyone in the whole world wore. I love it. It's like a roadmap of people and it's a real joy to transfer some of the clothing to my army of unreal people. This is the same drawing as yesterday which I have put through the wringer a bit.
The book is also useful for standing on to reach the top shelf of the bookcase...I would add a photo of the bookcase but you might think me frightfully untidy.

That is nothing to do with the drawing by the way.
