Happy Weekend!

Phew!  I made it through another week in Blighty* !

This weekend, I’ll be flat hunting, pub-going, and hopefully I’ll have some time for an amazing novel that I’m reading, State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, which is about a doctor’s adventures in the Amazon.

There is also an exhibition on at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington called, “Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970 – 1990“.  This show is part in a series of several shows on periods of design (former shows have included the Aesthetic Movement, Arts and Crafts…) some of which I have attended and are very good.

Gotta love a big city and its easy access to Culture!

Have a wonderful weekend.

*(NB — “Blighty” is a new vocabulary word of mine, and it is British slang for “Britain”.  Interestingly enough, this word derives from the Hindustani word vilāyatī (विलायती) (see wikipedia).

Drinks at one of my favorite pubs, the Prince Bonaparte in Bayswater, West London.
