■ I MISS MY PRE-BABY BRAIN ■

This weekend at the Serpentine Gallery experts and thinkers discuss the concept of memory. People like Gilbert&George, Tilda Swinton, John Berger

'Memory' is really interesting concept, and one that fascinates me. More so since having a baby, as I dont seem to be able to remember anything. Thank God for my iPhone. I dont know what I’d do without it. It is my memory.

Another Magazine have done a really nice round up of the event. Where I saw this slogan 'I miss my pre-internet brain' and it made me smile (Slogans for the Early 21st Century, Douglas Coupland, 2012 from the Daniel Faria Gallery)

And I do too miss my pre-internet brain but not as much as ‘I miss my pre-baby brain’

The Serpentine Memory Marathon takes place 13-14 October. Read more about it at Another Magazine http://www.anothermag.com/current/view/2260/Serpentine_Memory_Marathon_Editors_Picks They are also giving away tickets. Win by tweeting your first memory to @anothermagazine using the hashtag #memorymarathon

So we Prambled the streets of East London with the very lovely Gary from Alternative London hosted by the lovely ladies at Culture Baby Despite the crappy weather we had an awesome morning, clogging up the narrow arteries and passages of old London, and scaring some suited ‘n booted City types enroute. A super enjoyable morning. We met some really lovely Mums who we hope to see again very soon, and importantly saw some amazing street art - ROA, Pez, Cartrain, StickMan, a very secret Banksy, Sweet Toof, Malarky, so many others plus my new personal fav Conor Harrington Move over SweetToof I have a new street art crush. His work is amazeballs.

Moms at Tate / Damien Hirst

Today we went to see the Skull. Damien Hirsts’ skull to be precise. Sitting pretty in the Turbine gallery - all on its lonesome. Well, apart from the rows of people queuing to see its sparkly little face.

A great bunch of Mommas. Cute well behaved babies! And a lovely sunny day for hanging out chatting on the grass after. All made the recipe for a perfect day.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next CultureBaby/TheMiniPost event happening in July. We will give you details soon. But can I just say - its going to be good, very very good!!
