Happy Thursday Everyone.  I have a few new Followers to I just wanted to say Hi and thanks for following and I hope you enjoy this journey with me!!!!

As The Boys are away working hard this week, DH and I went out last night (!) now don’t faint it wasn’t to swimming or announcing or anything else we actually went out to Derby Cathedral.  No it wasn’t a religious service but an evening of song by the very talented ladies called “The D Day Darlings”.  They sing songs from the 1940’s and specifically from WWII.  The other reason for this particular evening is because there is an art installation at The Cathedral called “Museum of the Moon” from 16th September to 6th October, which is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

The Moon is suspended from The Cathedral ceiling, it measures 7 metres in diameter and features detailed NASA imagery on the lunar surface and is internally lit.  To keep it inflated there is a small fan embedded into its north pole which continually pumps air in.  Once it is inflated it weights 40kg.  The installation has already visited thirty countries worldwide including USA, China, Korea and Italy. 

It really is quite stunning.

When the lights went down this was the lighting for the Moon.

The concert was very good and so different, we both enjoyed it.

As it’s Thursday I have been working this morning and this afternoon it is home jobs!!!  It is raining again today (!) so Treacle is busy helping me with the cleaning, well she is following me around from room to room so I suppose that’s helping!!!

I hope you are having a Thrilling Day.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Wow, last night sounds fabulous!!! I’m interested in everything NASA (my cousin was the partner of Sally Ride) and I adore the music of WWII. One of these days I’ll be able to go and do things again. This ride I’m on is currently in a deep, dark, rocky valley!! Gorgeous weather here today – 89 is the projected high for today, with lots of sunshine. Of course, storms will be moving in for the weekend!
