I went to stay with my god mother again in Worcestershire. Some boys cut the hedges surrounding her fields and burnt it.

Occupy Bristol is a camp made up of tents of found and materials is situated between the Cathedral and the Bristol council buildings. Anarchists and ordinary people have camped here for months to make a stand against Capitalism for a fairer more equal society. We live in a time of government cuts, unreliable employment and inflated house prices.
Bristol City Council and the cathedral will evict the remaining Occupy Bristol demonstrators in the next few days. They are protesting for the good of everyone to create a fairer more equal society and have built their own houses! A few of the protestors are still living here.
I walked around with my friend Fiona and took some photos from afar.
Occupy Bristol tents.
The camp is situated on college green between the Cathedral and the Bristol council buildings.
One of the last occupied shacks (caretakers hut) and the council buildings.
A condescending statue looks on outside the council building. It is horrible.
God has left the church.
Photographs taken in Bristol in Winter.
Arnolfini art gallery with some golden windows.
I think I prefer the waterfront in Winter. The light is so dramatic and I like the inky black and gold reflections in water. I always feel like I am on holiday when I walk around the harbour.

I have found a picture of my Great Uncle Eric golfing with Carole Lombard and Clark Gable on the elegant obsession blog.
I have just discovered today Eric Tyrrell-Martin and his wife were good friends with the Hollywood couple. My granny (Eric’s sister) said she lost touch with him because he married an American and never came back to England. How amazing to find this image. One day I would love to go on holiday to California.
The man on the left next to Carole and Clark in the golfing photo is Eric.
