The BBC is starting to show 'Desperate Romantics' tonight. A "throbbing" bodice ripper about the Pre-Raphaelites.

In an unhappily synchronicitous development I've learned that our local 'De Morgan Centre for the Study of 19th Century Art and Society' is closing down on Saturday.

I'll have to try and get along to see it some time this week, giddy social whirl notwithstanding.

I remember Mark, the antique furniture restorer, recommending it to me a couple of years ago.

The story of 'Mark and the quarter of a million pound commode' will have to wait for another day.
