Hanging Around Swinton Street - 10th August

We explored the area around Russell Square today, and found this wonderful Phantom Fence on Malet Street. The railings were removed during WWII and never replaced. This public artwork highlights their absence. It's loads of fun! 
There is more info on this website: http://publicinterventions.org/projects/PHANTOM-RAILINGS/

Went to "Footes" in Store Street to get some drum sticks, and this sign was in the window from one of my favourite bands of all time.

On the work front...

We've both now registered with agencies for work.

The process of 'registration' is rather strange… you have to send them your CV by email to get their attention, then when you go in to the office, they sit you at a computer to 'do your registration' which simply means re-typing the details of your CV into their online database. Hmmm... I would have thought this process would be automated by now.

As I was updating my CV this morning, I realised that in my first few jobs we didn’t have computers. Just a phone, a notepad, a typewriter and some carbon paper! Those were the days.

Time now to ponder the past over a drink and some dinner.
