A Rake's Progress

Posted on 2011/10/30 11:44:10 (October 2011).

[Sunday 16th October 2011]
Alas I think I overdid it somewhat on yesterday's pub crawl - some poor judgement was exercised. Consequently I did not feel very well for a large part of today. Fittingly, whilst lying in a pathetic heap on the sofa in the daytime, vegetating in front of the TV, there was a program on which featured Hogarth's A Rake's Progress. I felt suitably remonstrated, particularly noting that the first scene which acts has a portent for Tom's imminent downfall is him being measured up for a suit.

Did eventually just about muster the wherewithal to get out of the flat later on in the afternoon, and had a slightly odd outing with Chie to Balham. She'd been wanting to go for a while having heard it was quite a cheap place to buy a house, but with relatively good transport links, considering it was South of the river. I of course was not impressed, but the one thing that neck of the woods does at least have going for it is a decent Waitrose, which we availed ourselves of while we were there.
