The week is young but a highlight has been receiving an invitation from Ray Hughes to attend one of his weekly lunches. This bigwig of the art world has been holding them for four years, bringing together twenty-four people from various fields purely for the purpose of conversation "and the exchange of ideas". Presumably, if you turn up you've got to be loquacious and have something interesting to say - oh the pressure. Can't wait, though, especially as I've been forewarned that a "respectable" exit would be 3.30pm!
