Yesterday evening I met up with [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni and [livejournal.com profile] daiseechain in London (not far from Trafalgar Square) and we attended an event about The Secret Journey of Doctor John Dee. Dee was born in 1527 and died over 80 years later having lived through several Kings and Queens of England. We were told the tale of his compilation of a book of angelic communications which he put together having worked with a self confessed spirit medium Edward Kelley (who may also have been a confidence trickster by all accounts as he also claimed to have a Philosophers Stone that could turn base metal to gold!). It was a fascinating story particularly when the book was lost and then rediscovered again - or at least parts of it were. There was also a folk singer who had written a couple of songs about Dee too.

The setting for this was LIBRARY which is a private members club and it was a really fascinating place. The decor was interesting with stained glass panels, gorgeous carved wood, lots and lots of bookshelves with books and interesting ceilings, floors and wall lights. We all coveted the rather odd chairs:
It was a good evening!

Today I have been to see a friend and we have caught up with many things and drunk far too much coffee.  To offset I have rather nice food to have this evening (and I have been bought chocolate which I have already eaten rather too much of) I walked to her house and back so I've managed to clock up four and a half miles which isn't too bad. This afternoon I have spend mostly cleaning and vacuuming up all the cat hair. Little furry beasts are shedding....

And it's been sunny today which always makes me feel full of energy!

Good things.
