Kiz: ‘Meet Tian Tian, the only female panda in the UK,
eating her lunch at Edinburgh Zoo.’
Sooze: ‘I had a fab deep sports therapy massage from
Matt Lyness last night; slept like a log and woke up
feeling bruised. Turns out I am bruised.
Only noticed this when I arrived in London.
Wearing a short dress. Oh well…’
Kiz: ‘You know you’re tired when…’
Sooze: ‘Here’s a snap of a picture of The White Lion in Hampton-in-Arden, in pastel pencils by Ray Parker – I’m over in Hampton today for what I’m calling ‘Ray’s retrospective’, a special exhibition and sale of the work of Hampton’s most prolific and well-loved artist, who died earlier this year. He gave a tremendous amount to the village in terms of his time, energy and love, and was incredibly modest and kind-hearted. He leaves a legacy of hundreds of paintings and drawings which hang in homes and offices all over the UK.’
Kiz: ‘My arch-nemesis in the ‘Limb Game’.
(We play this in our warm-ups for focus and
co-ordination. Theo here is pretty sneaky and
vicious. But defeatable!)
Sooze: ‘A pretty blond spider in my courtyard. I heard that yesterday in the courtyard, there was some drama when residents spotted – sunbathing near my car – a small grey stripey snake.’
Kiz: ‘Guess what the theme is in our house today??’
Sooze: ‘Coventry’s Spon Street – where they moved (literally brick-by-brick) the few medieval buildings that survived the WWII bombings; and an elephant on a bollard, symbolising Coventry’s strength and uhmm, something to do with its connection to dragons and St George.’
