Thank Me Later

- 2018/6 - a treat

I have a love hate relationship with the sheer amount of ‘sales’ happening this time of the year.

‘Love’ because let’s face it… who doesn’t enjoy saving a few pennies, but also ‘hate’ – actually ‘resentment’ would be a more accurate description – because there’s a sort of subliminal pressure in having to buy ‘in order to save’ (which is a ridiculous turn of affairs) and also sometimes the discounts are so huge I feel like we were taken for a ride if we’d bought at full price. 332 more words

- 166 - Louise Bourgeois

… One more post about my trip and then I’ll stop, I promise!

I didn’t know much about the sculptor Louise Bourgeois aside from her giant spider sculptures and her later life visceral prints… as a matter of fact one of her spiders was on show at the MoMA and boy, that thing was HUGE.   217 more words


- 165 - postcards from New York

Last day.Horrid weather.  Drenching.  Grey.  Dark. (New York has always got a certain charm but I didn’t have the right shoes that’s for sure…)

So after packing up our suitcases we decided to go to a museum;  and what a remarkably unoriginal idea it turned out to be. 149 more words
