My brother-in-law contemplates the pudding

And then my sister serves it.

You're home? How was the break?

The wedding photos turned out pretty well I think. We need to get them downloaded onto a memory stick and sent off to you.

How would you feel about me posting wedding photos here? I feel they're basically your property, so I wouldn't do it without your permission.

The break was wonderful thanks - cold but such a wonderful city. Had some fab walks and great meals (best steak in the world in a tiny brasserie that we went to with Ma before and still lived up to expectations). We saw a Hieronymus Bosch and another Bosch in the museum - supremely weird and pre-dating Dali et al by centuries! Also a Jan Van Eyck - incredibly detailed, fantastic colour still; interesting. The more modern museum contained Frank Brangwyn work - great to see this in reality - only seen reproductions before in a book.
Looking forward to seeing the photos... shall I ask Ian about posting? Thank you so much for doing them. Thomas has let me see his photos - which are a bonus! Have you looked at them on your email? Aren't they good?

Yes, ask Ian.

I love Bosch and Van Eyck. Obviously we need to go to Bruges some time. Brangwyn is an interesting artist. Did he live in Bruges?

Thomas's pictures are great.

Born in Bruges, but moved to England at aged 7 or 8 I think. I gaather he worked in England and also toured and recorded on the continent etc. He left a lot of his work to Bruges. I knew about him before from a catalogue of the Fine Art Society who had an exhibition of his work quite recently.
