Dazed and confused ... and departures and arrivals

I started off the week before last by assisting the artist Rachel Marsden in a concertina book binding workshop at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. I made this ace book which I'm going to use for my PhD as a piece exploring research-as-art-practice.

Ive also booked the Art Galley space at Margaret Street at the College of Art, BIAD the week beginning 26th October so I hope to create some more researchstallations/ textstallations and exhibit them at the end of the week : )  I had a really successful supervisory tutorial with my D.O.S this week as well ... and only have minor ammendments until I submit my application to register my research and my research diary which I handed in (my actual life and soul for the past year) was received well! To think how my I was sh*tting myself about the tutorial (excuse my language!) ...

I'm also seriously considering transferring my DTLLS - stupidly long acronym for a teaching qualification - to a full PGCE ... Mmmm .. the only thimg is that I would then be teaching for 3 and a half days + doing a PGCE + my PhD! Some would say just plain stupid or as my friend Katy said the other day ... "by the way i think your mad - but also go you" ... social suicide and major stress impending.

The past week and a half has been one of departures and arrivals! Good luck to my A-mazing younger (but much taller) sister Nicky who started her degree in Bsc Hons Physical Health, Activity and Excerise Science at Sheffield Hallam Uni! (I feel so old!) ... and also good luck to my friend Seaman Specialist Hawkins who left to join the Navy on Sunday morning! Also massive congratulations to Tim and Jo on the birth of their beautiful baby boy Max James Boote ... which I have been secretly (well semi-secretly now) been painting a canvas for baby Max's room when I see them.

I feel really lame having a sort of 'shout out' to people I know ... but it's gotta be done! : )  It's started making me think about the status of the/my blog ... is it catharsis? ... do people want to know? ... err do they care?! ... answers on a postcard please!!
