Back to the grindstone  
Just the first day back at work - I've had a week off pottering at home, doing bits of DIY, day trips, cinema, that sort of thing. Ah, I hear you ask, why not post to lj on your week off - well, I would but I'm more bored now :)

Anyway, may I recommend the Cult of Beauty exhibition at the V&A? I did love it, but I'm fond of the period - sort of 1860-1900. I particularly like the early Pre-Raphaelite stuff which has a huge energy and freshness to it. Oh, and a lot of sex, but that's hardly going to put anyone off, now, is it? :) It's a mixed media exhibition, so it's really nice to see paintings, next to furniture, next to textiles, next to wallpaper! Brilliant stuff.

The exhibition sounds great. I do miss Desperate Romantics.

It was great, wasn't it? And now Aiden Turner is off being all Hollywood-y - or at least, Wellywood-y! :)

The exhibition looks gorgeous! Thanks for the link. Sounds like you had a happy pottering holiday. Good times.

It was a very relaxing time, and I also now have my spare room in some sort of order :) Now for the British Library's sci-fi exhibition *rubs hands*

Ah yes - I am meaning to go to that, too.

Sorry, this is a bit random, I don't know you or anything, but I was looking through your journal for fic and found this, and I don't think I can second it hard enough! I went to the Cult of Beauty over the summer, and it was amazing, and anyone interested in Victorian Era culture should check it out. What was your favorite part?
