Geishas


Sunday 9 August 2015

Hot and sticky 32 degrees

Felt very tired after such a busy week.  Spent most of day tidying up and doing laundry. Started to re read Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.  Wonderful book and enjoyed it as much this time as before





Beautiful doll like creatures and exquisite costumes.  Their hair is dressed with wax and they slept on wooden pillows so as not to disturb the ornate hairstyles.  The young apprentices wear the most extravagant and brightly coloured kimono.

Rang the buyers of the contemporary house and read through the draft compromis and they are decided on having the independent law company.  Heart sinks.  This will put weeks on things.  Must contact them and get them moving or otherwise we will be out of time on the original offer.
