Here are the pictures of the pictures, another one not to miss, the exhibition is on until Wednesday including Sunday, the pictures will expand if clicked on. I managed to catch the artist in the gallery, so photo of her too.
Oh My Cod fish and chip shop is now open in King Street.
Having picked up a special offer £2.99 cake at the end of It’s sell by date in Waitrose to amuse my children, can I take some to school dad? Will you take a picture of it dad? And so on, when I opened Google+ which is where the photos from my phone go automatically, I got a message on the cake one saying: Is this a picture of Michael Child?
One of the flats near to my bookshop caught fire yesterday, I am glad to report that no one was hurt and the fire brigade put it out before it spread to the other flats in the same building.
A side effect of this was that my bookshop was behind the cordoned off area “Fire in progress do not enter” or whatever it said. Strangely enough this didn’t seem to prevent my bookshop customers from getting through, so while the drama was going on we carried on trading.
In the interesting modern world there are now so few shops, other than those selling food and clothes where one can engage in normal shopping now, I can understand why we are still fairly busy. A prime example of this problem is the new exhibition at The Turner Contemporary, you can buy the exhibition catalogue in the gallery’s shop for fifteen quid or buy it online new and including postage for about a tenner.
However you look at it this it takes the pleasure out of shopping and you would have thought that between them the gallery and the publisher could have ensured that the catalogue was competitively priced.
