Yesterday, younger son and I went to the relaunch of Peterborough Museum. I'd had an invitation via the magazine, but I would have gone along anyway, as it's rare that we have something like this to celebrate about our nearest city. Housed in a huge Georgian building, the Museum has always had potential, but the injection of a large grant and a complete rethink of the displays has changed the place beyond recognition.
Of course, I loved the room sets best.
That red cupboard is rather fine.
I love the radio on the top shelf. And a bit further back in time....
If you live anywhere near Peterborough, it's definitely worth visiting. Young children will love the dinosaur displays, and there is an old operating theatre which will appeal to those who don't mind a grisly view of the past.
Today I've been very busy mending, repainting and recovering furniture for my sale. More about that when I've got some finished items to show you.
