I have taken some photos and will post them but the light is not brilliant at the moment so I will try again tomorrow morning when it is brighter.
The carpet man condemned the Bukhara in my bedroom and is trying to find something which matches the colour scheme. He brought a couple to try when he came back with the underlay but neither was the right colour so he is going to bring another, silk-based, more expensive one, which he thinks will match better. We will see; there is no hurry.
Herself bought me lunch and as the place she had chosen was full to overflowing we came back here to The Duchess where they have a lunch menu of entree and main course with a glass of wine for a set price. We both had calamari for starters and I had the best pepper steak I have ever eaten. I shall certainly go there again.
The cats are getting big and are now Eleven months old. I have started them on a mix of kitten and standard food and they are not very happy about it but I am sure that they will eat it when they get hungry enough. They are very excited about the new carpets and Parsifal had to be shut out on the balcony because he was rolling on them before they had even been properly spread on the floor and kept getting in the way, refusing to be held; he was determined to help Amir the carpet man.
