This past weekend has been a blur of boxes, unpacking and mess. Massively helped by my parents which meant I am all moved in and unpacked after 1 weekend. To thank them for their help, I bought champagne when I flew up from London. However, the fridge had been set too low. Resulting in the cork exploding and champagne flowing everywhere! It was one way to christen my flat. Expect more photos of the flat next week!
So travelling around Europe is now on my life to-do list. The book follows a to-be divorced husband and wife travelling with their son in an attempt to re-fall in love and save the marriage. We can all relate to holidays with family, tears and torment no one happy, ever sunburnt with sore feet from walking. Not to forget the booking a hotel of the internet only to find it’s not quite what you would expect. David Nicholls wrote the smash hit One Day, which was subsequently turned into one of my favourite films. One Day is about falling in love and Us the opposite, falling out of love. Will quietly hope for this book to also make it to the big screen.
I’d never been to any form of art exhibition before, beyond seeing friends A-Level pieces. Art does scare me sometimes, I don’t always understand it or get it. Add Lego into the mix and I’m good to go. The Art of The Brick exhibition is taking place in The Old Truman Brewery. The pieces varied from hands to replicas of the Mona Lisa to a life-size dinosaur (80,000 pieces). The photos don’t do the pieces justice but you can sort of see the intricacy of the layering of the bricks and the depth created, particularly in the replicas of paintings.
