Are you ready to Rock?!
I know I am.
My birthday (yesterday).
I had such a lovely day and was totally spoilt -
lots of texts, emails, cards and presents.
Thank you for all your kind Birthday wishes,
I felt just like a real Princess
I went to the Grayson Perry exhibition,
at the British Museum
with my friend Louise.
Unfortunately I had developed a streaming cold overnight,
but I was determined to go and I'm so glad I did.
Not exactly a dry and dusty museum.
Grayson's custom made motorcycle,
but sadly no Alan Measles but his seat was being
kept warm by another small teddy bear.
The attention to detail is incredible.

This was a beautiful quilted wall hanging.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this exhibition.
The variety and creativity of the original artefacts
was stunning and Grayson's own interpretation
of them was fascinating.
There are quite a few sexually explicit items,
many of them involving (a rather happy) Alan Measles,
so if you find that kinda thing shocking the
exhibition probably isn't for you.
Otherwise, I would definitely urge you to go,
it's on until the middle of February 2012.
It was fun spending the day with Louise,
she's one-of-a-kind and I love her for it
(sorry I walked so fast, Looby!).
My streaming cold had all but disappeared this morning.
A 24 hour cold.
On my birthday.
AND I didn't have any CAKE because
I couldn't breathe and eat at the same time
What else made my week Rock?
Watching the two Christmas plays at school.
The little ones' (Key Stage 1) Nativity was
'The Sleepy Shepherd'.
I really enjoyed watching it,
as I have done every year.
There's always a child facing the wrong way,
another totally frozen into inactivity by the
presence of parents,
the sweet child belting out the songs
and that moment when their little voices warble
'Away in a Manger'
bringing a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes.
The bigger children (Key Stage 2) performed 'Oliver'.
They were amazing, absolutely stunning.
So much work had gone into producing the show
and the children looked like they were enjoying
I can imagine 1 or 2 of them pursuing a career in
acting/singing, wouldn't it be wonderful if I'd
seen them at the very start of their careers?
Hair cut today.
Shorter = better.
Being awarded a £10 voucher by
simply for leaving reviews on products I'd bought
Let's go shopping!
(and there's free UK postage until 18th December)
I'm looking forward to
The X Factor Final
Who will win?
Will it be.....
I DON'T KNOW!
Grant loves Amelia Lily
(he likes 'dirty' female rockers - but married me?!).
Hope and I really like Marcus.
We're restricting ourselves to one family vote,
so obviously Hope's and my decision will be final!
Phew, rather a long post for you to wade
through today, sorry.
I'll post this with Virginia and visit her other Rockers.
Whatever you're up to this weekend
I hope you have fun.
'Tis the Season to be Jolly, after all.
