Catching up with some small but necessary tasks

1. Painted silver the rest of the pavement in front of cafe.

2. And painted some stripes on a semi-circular canopy on the RHS of the nightclub street.

Currently listening to:

Last night's dinner:

Macaroni cheese with asparagus, trout and tomatoes
Evelyn Waugh mystery analysed:

I should have added into yesterday's Waugh vs Waugh another baddy:

Perhaps the explanation as to why I love some of his books but can't be bothered with the others has to do with how old Waugh was when he wrote the books: perhaps he improved with age.

Except for Decline and Fall which is one of my favourite novels and was written before all the others in the lists, the Baddies tended to be written before the Goodies.
