On Saturday I went to the V&A Museum of Childhood at Bethnal Green, I wanted to see the board games exhibition, which wasn't really wonderful. The signage and labelling throughout is very poor; it would have been OK in the exhibition if some idiot hadn't decided to print the labels alternatively in black on teal or cream on magenta, thereby ensuring they were too low contrast to be easily read. I am contemplating a withering email. The best thing was a Rachel Whiteread installation of dolls houses. Still, had a nice walk and sat in the sun drinking coffee and listening to live music.

sunny with a northerly-ish, slight breeze - a day for bed linen (cotton) washing.
i'm assuming bed linen is an anachronism as i would imagine that few people since the 18thC/19thC have used linen as bedding. when cotton became king (and now polycotton - bleugh) the old phrase stayed.
