Big chair! Big desk!

Robin and giant furniture
Originally uploaded by athens2004blog.

If you look to the right of Robin on the kite-flying picture below, you might be able to see this giant table and chair, which is currently situated on Parliament Fields on Hampstead Heath.

It's a work of sculpture called The Writer by Italian sculptor Giancarlo Neri. It's an impressive piece of work, like something out of Alice in Wonderland or Lilliput, just sitting there in the middle of the field.

You can read all about the sculpture on The Guardian's website here.

If only Robin had agreed to a kite ride he could have gotten a lift onto the chair and had quite a view. A bit odd that such a brave bird (remember the cannon!!) wouldn't want a kite ride - lol!

Hope all is well with you - fall is on the way here and the relief from the heat is very welcome.

Returning from Spain it is good to see all the activities Robin has been up to. I caught sight of him last night at Tamworth v York. He did not look any taller but I thought he looked a bit travel-weary. Wonder where he will turn up next?
