Things I am currently very excited about

I have a long term obsession with feral children and indeed all things Fortean, and yesterday I found this book in a second hand bookshop in town:

gazelle boy

The story of a boy found living wild with Gazelle in the Sahara

This lead me onto discovering this website: Feral Children which will now provide me with hours of enjoyment no doubt.

I also am currently very excited about my new book, remember I mentioned it a while ago? Well here's a sneak at it:
Mmmm Golden

It's a book i've had on my wish list for a long long time, and it arrived on the day of my deadline, so perfect timing- and I managed to find a half price copy too! What is it I hear you ask? Well it's this book: Annette Messager: Messengers
I've been rationing myself out as it's such a lovely book and it's almost unbearable to crack open the smooth golden pages, but every night I take a little look at some more and curl up feeling very happy with myself for being a good girl who did her homework and got a treat (even if she did pay for it herself)

And finally- i'm realising how great it is to have a partner in crime- a co-conspiritor in getting things done. Since our meeting on Monday, Claire and I have been coming up with ideas for future shows, press releases, pieces of work, all sorts- this is just what i've been missing out on!

Annette Messager!! You lucky lucky girl. I adore her work, her preserved dresses, her little stuffed birds, do you know she used to teach them the alphabet, amazing.
