There was something on the radio about the stress farmers are under because of Brexit (yes, please repress the unkind thoughts) but it’s not just farmers! We go to press with the new Biannually today week and still don’t know if we will be able to print our autumn books. This is all beyond frightful. But we have a new game: with a Schubert Impromptu in the background we watch the numbers shoot up on the Petition. ‘They’ will take no notice but it’s something. Meanwhile, with apologies for the renewed rant, Rose Hilton: this Still Life is a recent work which has just been sold. Let’s all put some daffodils in a blue jug in honour of Rose.
