I hope I find you well tis Friday time for
Well it has been a funny old week, last Friday I had a relatively quiet day at home, which was nice, I was in need of stopping if I'm honest.
On Saturday I enjoyed popping to my local craft store and buying some goodies to scrapbook with. I'd seen a couple of online kit websites and decided that I could buy similar from my local store, thus supporting my local store and hopefully it staying around if that makes sense. I had great fun co-ordinating paper and finding some embellishments.
We then popped to see my Mum and my sister which was lovely and much needed.
On Sunday we decided to have another mooch to Yorkshire Sculpture Park as there was a new exhibition in the chapel that we hadn't seen.
We saw a new sculpture in the park called Oeuvre by Gavin Turk, we spotted it from a distance and went for a closer look. We giggled at the write up which stated that "Turk studied at the RCA London, where he was denied his post-grad qualification because his degree show consisted solely of a whitewashed studio in which he placed a single blue heritage plaque stating 'Gavin Turk worked here 1989-91' "
The water was flowing fast due to the recent rain.
We then enjoyed a long leisurely walk around before making our way up to the chapel, it was mighty muddy trying to climb up the hill but it was worth it.
The artist is Saad Qureshi and his work really appealed, the detail was fantastic.
The ladder was one of my favourite pieces, although this one is a bit blurry so might have to go back and have another look to get a better shot.
The theme of the exhibition was paradise.
This piece was probably one of my favourites
and this one, a boat, really high up near the ceiling
The rest of the week has been tough if I'm honest, a very busy hectic week where I've definitely tread water rather than made progress. But with the support of great colleagues and my wonderful family I'm trying to find ways of calming and finding work rounds.
Other little silver linings, lovely chats with said 19 year, beautiful flowers from hubby, milky coffees, lounging on the sofa, woodburning sofa.
I hope you've had a great week if you fancy joining in pop a post together, come back link up and we can come and visit.
