Last week's Banksy non-event led to a bit of graffiti based inspiration so here's the resulting necklace.

Banksy Exhibition - Bristol

Today I got up early (not an unusual occurence as I'm generally up for work at 5:30 but it is the weekend) and drove from Welwyn Garden City to Bristol in order to see the Banksy exhibition at the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery.

Upon arriving we found the queue extended for a 6 hour wait, standing in the streets around the museum in the sun. No tickets are required so cannot be purchased in advance for timed entry or anything as convenient as that. Sufficed to say I came back home somewhat disappointed at not seeing the exhibition. I did however get to take some pictures of great graffiti along the harbour.


I seem to have had so much to do and so little time in which to do it. What with doubts about my job and a few other things going on I just haven't felt inclined to blog. But here goes.

My job contract wasn't renewed at the end of July but I have been doing holiday cover wherever was required until August 28th when I would out of work. Last week I had lined up two interviews with other building contractors but cancelled them with a quick prayer that 'God would provide'. On Friday the company I currently work decided that they didn't want to lose me after all and have guaranteed me a contract until Christmas at the least. Phew! How lucky am I?
