A mystery wrapped in an enigma

#184: Tell us something most people probably don’t know about you.

Hmmm… this is pretty tricky as after 183 posts, there probably isn’t much that I haven’t mentioned!

I have a 2:1 in Human Resource Management… I probably haven’t mentioned that as it’s just too boring!

I love Disney films and when I was younger (as in 6 or 7), I wanted to be a mermaid but was devastated to find out it wasn’t possible. Thanks Walt…

I’m hoping to move into London before this year’s out. I love London with a passion – we used to always visit during he school holidays (mostly to go to the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum, or more rarely see a west end theatre show), so have always had fond memories of the capital. To live in the heart of it all would be a dream come true… and it wouldn’t mean I’d have to worry about the last train home at 11pm!

The artist’s eye

#178: Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to? What does  it say to you? Describe the experience. (Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)

I’ve never been one for visiting art galleries – whenever I think about going into London, I automatically think of West End theatres and visiting museums, such as the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum (THE fun days-out places from my childhood!). I think an interest in Art, is mostly determined by your surroundings when growing up – if members of your family have a passion for it, if you attend a school that specialises in Art (mine was sports… not that I turned out particularly sporty) and the area you live in. When I think of my family, I think theme parks, pub lunches and package holidays – so art culture wise, it’s just not us.

That said, the types of art I do like (as I don’t have one in particular) are things such as The Big Bang Theory pop art, Egyptian art on papyrus paper, or something more simple like beautiful gerberas or butterflies!
