Tomorrow, 28th August, 2023 marks the second wedding anniversary for George and me. Traditionally, this milestone is celebrated with gifts made of cotton. My parents kindly gifted us a luxurious new cotton bedding set. Inspired by the theme, I also took the opportunity to declutter our wardrobe. I used vacuum-sealed hanging packs to store my summer clothing, freeing up some valuable space for George’s growing collection of shirts and jumpers in our shared wardrobe.

This month also ushered in special occasions: we celebrated my mum and brother Matt’s birthdays. Our cultural sojourns included visiting a myriad of art exhibitions—The Tate Modern, The Van Gogh Immersive Experience, and a 360-degree art exhibit at The Lightroom in Kings Cross featuring the works of David Hockney. These latter two exhibitions were particularly striking, featuring colossal projections of the artists’ works along with extensive insights into their creative processes.
On a lighter note, we indulged in an elegant afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason, tackled The Crystal Maze experience, enjoyed the tap-dancing brilliance of ‘Crazy for You’ (Musical), and engaged in a game of Electric Shuffleboard at Canary Wharf I wholeheartedly recommend these diverse activities; we had an absolute blast.
After all this, we also celebrated George’s birthday in style. We roared with laughter at ‘The Book of Mormon’ and even tried our hand at archery.
As for my Dad, he remains a sceptic when it comes to contemporary art, often quipping that he could produce something superior. To illustrate this point, here is a grid of photos taken at various exhibits. Can you discern which were snapped by my dad and which are the genuine artworks?
And that’s a wrap! Anniversaries, art debates with my Dad, and a bit of fun in between. What’s your latest adventure?
