Thought for the Day

It's very hard to understand The Big Picture if you have to spend all your time looking at individual pixels.

Hello Again

Many lovely things going on at the moment. Which is nice. Just thought I'd say, that's all.

I've also mentioned in various other quarters that I've got that rarest of things next week - a week off, totally to myself. Pure leisure, in a pre-parenting style.

So many things I could do - spending the week in the pub, the studio in the cellar, sitting in the Rothko room at the Tate, watching films in the middle of the day because I can, taking a train up to Edinburgh purely for the purposes of looking out of the window.

Any thoughts to the comments box or the usual email address...

Nigel Slater - for 4 year olds

She has to read the ingredients, check the numbers on the oven timer etc - and because she feels more involved she says she's going to eat it all up!
