Well this morning i was determined to sleep in a bit but i was so anxious to go and see the article in the paper about Bog standard Gallery that i got up early and we to the shop up the road to get a copy. To my amazement the guy in the shop that sold me the paper, recognised me straight away and asked for my autograph! I asked him what the article is like, and he said he hadn’t read it yet but would do with his lunch. I was really pleased with the article on page 3 of the Manchester Evening News because they didn’t portray me as being a weirdo and were actually quite nice about it!

Today it took it easy after my lack of breaks over the past couple of weeks and was walking down Market Street in town. The MEN guys in yellow coats were handing out copies of the MEN so i took a copy and started walking away. Then i heard a voice saying, “Come back!!” and when i turned around the MEN man was beckoning me over. He couldn’t believe he had spotted me from the paper and said he was so excited that someone famous from in the paper actually went to their stand to get a copy and then asked me to sign the paper for him!! This i did and then i took a picture of them…

This evening was the opening of Bog Standard Gallery’s first exhibition! She was wrapped up in a red ribbon…and then opened by Mary Griffiths, Curator of Modern Art and the Whitworth Art Gallery.


is the opening of the JNF exhibition and then the exhibition will be open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday next week.
