Mike and I went to London today to meet my friend Paul at the Hayward Gallery to see David Shrigley and Jeremy Deller's exhibition.
Before that, I was desperate to get my hair cut, so we went along to Hair By Fairy in Covent Garden. It's a great place, a cut and rough dry is only £13. I went for the £28 full works. You don't have to prebook, they don't try and sell you any products AND they're not English, so they're a) some how more stylish b)don't chat crap and run out and get confused if you don't work in marketing and live in a flat with your fiance. I get sick of having to explain my complicated existence to rather dense stylists who aren't interested in the first place.
Enough bitching! Here's the groovy outside of HBF
I love my new do... here's a photo, bit of a myspace scene girl pose....
We had a quick bite to eat - another hair photo!
We proceeded to The Hayward Gallery
David Shrigley is one of my favourite artists. I find him hilarious
You can find more of his work on his website
We were some of the only people laughing. This did mean we found quite a lot of Jeremy Deller funny, although it wasn't all hard hitting and serious. There was a reconstruction of a caff (low end cafe) which served free tea
That's Jeremy at the front table
Here's Paul having a cuppa
After the exhibition we wandered round London, had a snack, then went to Fortnum and Masons - one of the poshest shops around, for my non UK readers take a peek at the place here
I bought 8 marshmallows for £3.90 - but they are the marshmallows of the very gods.
We also went into The Japan Centre - which sells Japanese food, drink and other sundries. I found a Totoro cream cake! At the time of writing this I've resisted eating it, but it won't last much longer...
Here's some photos from Chinatown... look at the cakes!
I've been playing with the lomography effects on my phone!
Finally here's my outfit - bit of a grumpy face as we forgot to take photos til the end of the day!
