An early cultural highlight this month, a trip to London to see the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A. What an incredible life she had, what strength, resilience and amazing talent.  Absolutely loved all of her work. The curation was done superbly well by the V&A team,  I found the narrative compelling and sting well with the exhibits,  it came together in really fascinating flow through her complicated life, leaving me in no doubt about her passion and amazing talent.

11th/11th was poignant, marking 100 years since the end of the First World War

Russia is now flexing it’s military muscles in the Black Sea, firing upon and capturing three Ukrainian Navy vessels in disputed international waters.  This seems unnecessary and reminds us how vigilant we need to be with Russia.

Something amazing happened here in the UK on 6th November; For the first time in the UK our renewable energy exceeded that of fossil fuels (at 41.9 Gigawatts).
