Shhhhh, don't tell anyone but it's my birthday tomorrow.
To celebrate, I'm going out with my friend, Louise.
We are going to the
Grayson Perry exhibition,
at The British Museum.
If you haven't heard of Grayson Perry
he is a British artist,
and a rather unusual character.
|(Grayson Perry as 'Claire')|
He has a female alter ego called Claire,
who dresses up in what can only be described
as Pantomime Dame attire.

The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman is a celebration of
craftsmen throughout the ages and around the world
who have created items of beauty, and some 150 -
all selected by Grayson - will be on display.
Grayson has then created his own version of
some of these items.
I watched the BBC programme
'Imagine........with Grayson Perry'
in which he discussed with Alan Yentob
his forthcoming exhibition at the British Museum
and he also went on a pilgrimage
to Germany on his custom made motorcycle.
In the glass sided box on the back of the motorbike is Grayson's teddy bear, Alan Measles,
who he's owned since he was a baby.
I'm really looking forward to my day out tomorrow
and will eat CAKE all day!
I will report back on the exhibition, of course.
By the way, Louise and I are planning to start
an artistic collaboration,
which we were hoping to name 'Urban Fox' -
my surname being Urbani, hers Fox.
The name Urban Fox seems to be taken already
so we might amend it to
Anyway, our plans for creative world domination
are starting off with a shared stall at the
Christmas Fair next year at a local school.
Baby steps, eh?!
