Summery of the weekend.

Saturday met with Ian of Much Wyrdness for breakfast. Went to sculpting shop and acquired kilos of oil based clay and white metal. Moved on to computer fair acquired ink and cables. Moved on to The Museum Tavern for refreshments. Took a wander down to bike shop with Ian then walked south to Treadwells... Where Christina had a nice surprise for me in the way of a cheque for a book I've had on her shelf there.

Sunday met with Ruthy of Glam and Goffness for expedition to carboot fair (I should of worn my Wish Wellingtons). Ruth had a bit of a result financially at he fair so treated me to lunch at The Bell in East Molesey which is rather splendid and ticks some of the essential boxes that make a good pub.  Later a quick wander around Surbiton to check out the two charity shops that dare to trade on the Lord's day. Then I had to dash off to get ready to go to The Royal Opera House. Thanks be unto la grenouille de morbide for suggesting and getting tickets for a screening of The Phantom of the Opera (1925) with live orchestral score written and conducted by Carl Davis. Pleased to see it included the two strip technicolor and hand tinted reels. There are so many hacked about prints of this film with grossly inappropriate music... I think this is the best version I've seen. The music really was stunning.
