It’s been a little while since the last post. In short we’ve been pretty busy. I’ve had a few projects on the go (some I’ll reveal here in a bit) and time has been taken up with those leaving not much time for the blog. Nevertheless plenty of ideas for posts have come about so hopefully I’ll find time to get them out of my brain and into the virtual world. Hopefully.
In the meantime here’s a few bits and bobs that have happened over the last few months – and yes I realise I’m already a month behind on this.
As I said in a previous ( and now pretty popular) post about Ital Scooters the end of March saw me celebrating my birthday with a visit to Cheltenham. The time was not just spent admiring Vespa’s but we also made the most of the sunshine with a walk around Pittville Park and the Pump Room.
The end of April it was Em’s birthday. So we had a good time in Birmingham wandering around looking at the 48 Sheet Exhibition. A great show which was situated across Birmingham and the surrounding region where artists got together using billboards as a form of creative expression. We also made our way to The Electric Cinema, definitely worth visiting.
At the end of May I went to London, mainly to take part in Clerkenwell Design Week. It also gave me the opportunity to see the excellent Bauhaus exhibition at the Barbican Centre – which is still on until 12th August 2012.
We were lucky to be able to see the Olympic Torch as it made its way into Worcester for the night, complete with its entourage of sponsor buses and lorries with people dancing on them who quite frankly just looked exhausted. I’ve heard different opinions on the torch’s procession but we really enjoyed it, the weather was perfect and the crowds were large and excited.
This isn’t the best example but I was really pleased to be able to have some artwork in an exhibition at Worcester Arts Workshop. I’ve been doing a few enjoyable projects for the Workshop and Café Bliss and it was good to be exhibiting again (it had been quite a while).
We were away for the Jubilee celebrations. With a family celebration of our own we were down in Somerset for Mum’s 60th. The surrounding villages really got into the spirit with the entire village around Montacute House covered in bunting – not to mention some impressive, if slightly terrifying, mannequins of the Royal Family.
So, good times again. Until the next one…
