Freddie and I are off to Poland this week for some quality grandparents time, it’s going to be very cold but sunny, the autumn is very beautiful with maple and chestnut trees in abundance. The little one will get spoiled and I will probably enjoy some free time to read and eat a lot of good food.
One of my all time favourite photographers, Henri Cartier Bresson, is at Somerset House, make sure to enjoy a tasty sandwich at the newly opened Fernandez and Wells cafe afterward.
I don’t like BBC’s Paradise, I think it is offensive to say it is based on Zola’s wonderful novel but ITV teamed up with Andrew Davies and we will soon enjoy a better department store drama – Mr Selfridge. The dates are still to be announced due to TV stations topical clash.
Even more exciting TV news, BBC comes back with The Hour this week!
Egyptian cats, Rodin, Brancusi, Hepworth, Roman thinkers and Nigerian statues - Bronze at Royal Academy is a very well edited exhibition that covers all eras and most continents.
Ice rink at Somerset House is opening soon, make sure to get your tickets fast.
Go to Wisley for a splash of autumn colours and the Contemporary Craft and Design Fair 21-25 November.
