Managed to avoid the bank holiday showers at Redland Fair, and picked up a very intriguing item. It is a portfolio of approximately 30 pieces by someone called Joanne Makepeace dating back to the early 1940’s. The work is a combination of still life’s and what looks like either wallpaper or fabric designs, but the main think which caught our eye is the collection of great interior design pieces, which look almost like architectural drawings. We don’t know anything about the artist, other than the fact that the work was created when she was studying the west of England academy. The chap that sold them to us said that he discovered them whilst doing a house clearance. So now we need to sort out some frames, to put the best pieces up in our house. Who knows, it could be here first exhibition, 60 years after the work was made!

I went to the Zutons and the very impressive Dead 60’s last night. The Dead 60’s sound just like The Clash when they played their punky version of Reggae, it’s the 2nd time that I’ve seen them and have to say that they are a great live band, they have a single out a couple of weeks, hope that they can capture the energy of the live sound.

Big, big match coming up for Bristol City this weekend. If we can beat Blackpool and QPR fail to win their match we will gain promotion to division 1. The way the season has gone so far, I’m sure that something dramatic will happen in the last minute of the match to decide our fate one way or another. My friend Steve is even coming home from Madrid to watch the match, that’s dedication!
