Exquisite Bodies @ Wellcome Collection

Wellcome Collection always put on fascinating exhibitions and this is no exception. It goes from fairground grotesque to anatomical learning. The detail in the models are could think they were real. It's amazing to think of them being made. It's all so complicated that it seems unfathomable to think how scientists and doctors worked out what everything did!

I just watched this over at I wish I had the moral strength to be vegetarian. But I enjoy my food so much. I try to convince myself it is ok to eat meat as I eat it rarely and I only eat free range chicken. But while I'm aware the fish is running out I've not thought about it.

Arr it's so difficult and expensive to try and live right. To be completely good is impossible. But it's important to have the right attitude at least and to make the best choices you can.

I hope this fish 4 u stuff is available in my local sainsburys.

tales from outer suburbia - shaun tan

I think this is more a book for adults than children, but we sell it from the children's section at work. It's a beautiful illustrated book with odd disjointed little stories mixing imagination with suburban life.

Mr Emmie and I have just moved, cramming ourselves into a little far it seems fine, nice and cosy :) and I'm thrilled with the beautiful shadows. I almost don't wnt to hang my Babar picture...
