Storyscapes: Part 2

Doh, sad news again I'm afraid. We didn't get picked to build the Storyscape piece for the Museum in Wem. It's a shame as I think our ideas were pretty good and I think working with the folk at the museum would have been great fun. Dez and Ali who run the museum are really nice and are both full of stories. The museum itself is a treasure trove of different art objects, storytelling artifacts and book upon book of stories. Sadly, I didn't think to take any photos when I was down, but if you are in the Shropshire area it is definitely worth a visit.
After the interview on Friday Ann and I spent the weekend driving around Shropshire and Wales. We'd never been to that part of the country before, and armed with our satnav, we happily trundled around having a look at everything we could find. Was a very pleasant way to spend a weekend, despite the torrential rain and high winds.
Highlights of trip include, the Myth museum itself, the odd village of Portmerrion, seeing several thousand swallows swarming over Gretna Green and me accidentally catapulting a bowl of rice over a nearby table.
