Rain

It’s been a bit wet and miserable so I haven’t managed to get out and about on my bicycle as planned.  I spent too much time in front of the TV and discovered this weird program Lost. It seems to be playing with the general need for humans to find some kind of meaning or purpose to our existence and the world, combined with the general loss of our traditional belief systems in modern society.  The series has a large number of unsolved mysteries and plotlines.

Surrey County Youth Wind Orchestra

SCYWO

This is the Surrey County Youth Wind Orchestra (Scywo) performing last night at the Playhouse Theatre in Epsom.  Scywo is directed by Hugh Craig and its leader is Selina Ley.

I was filming the concert with my camcorder when a manager of the theatre came around and instructed me to stop. Jobsworth!

I have had a sneak preview of Scarlett’s next interview extraordinaire - it rocks!

Local news

local headlines

Spotted lying on the pavement outside the cornershop in Oxted.

The award joy apparently concerns the Campaign for Real Ale guidebook listing local Oxted pub The Royal Oak in their latest guide book.  It was probably a slow week down at the paper, or else this counts as an advertising feature.

Miss Print

image

This is a quality hand-printed silk lampshade, from Miss Print, as seen at the By Design exhibition at Grace Barrand.

Miss Print is a mother-daughter business, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, including 1950’s design and illustration and natural and organic influences.

Magnolia Tree

Magnolia Tree

The magnolias are in bloom at the moment, a sure indication that spring is here. In a couple of weeks it will all be over, with the spring blossoms having passed.

The Royal Horticultural Society has some advice about pruning magnolia trees.  If done at all it should be done in summer.
