Carer's Rights Day event at Lincoln Golf Centre - apparently we have rights, I have yet to discover any more about them.
How cute. Unfortunately, this value is apparently available as slavery, in unpaid labour, for some inexplicable reason, set at £62.70 per week
That's if you're "eligible", which I'm not.
The energy bill keeps changing. I can't cope with it. It's affecting my mental health, as I no longer believe any of the suppliers are telling the truth any more. With respect of price increases. I think I'm paying for usage, then they arbitrarily increase the price. My income is not increasing to reflect the increase.

Fancy Footwork custom converse #womanspreading at Feren's Art Gallery in the Turner Prize exhibition.

|Absolutely no irony here - artists are now the slaves.|
|The audience is also a slave.|
|"Comment is free" - although it isn't if you're an artist.|
|The slavery of looking at an image of Thatcher - this is costing me £322.39 in cuts.|

This week, I won a ticket to attend BBC6music's #ArtIsEverywhere Breakfast Show recording with Mary Anne Hobbs live at Feren's Art Gallery in Hull.
So amid organising things for Birds Yard for the Christmas Market (see Illustration blog), I frantically booked a train ticket and a last minute hotel, and headed the long way round the Humber to go.
(Of course, if I were paid properly, I could afford to run a car, it would be an hour's drive across the Humber bridge).

|Gold signs are all the rage, apparently.|
|This breakfast was not free, it was £1 for some #juice|
|I got the Juice! #Chromeo|
|My Turner Prize entry.|

The Feren's Art Gallery team provided us with some materials - a piece of paper and some charcoal, although there was a shortage, so the audience were asked to break it in half to share around.
|Maryanne Hobbs tweeting and interviewing Nick from Blast Theory|
I remember meeting Nick when Blast Theory had their Frequency Festival piece in Lincoln, before I realised that Frequency Festival is a total failure for artists here in Lincoln.
|charcoal, not all that good for drawing faces!|
|Just did this to see what it looked like!|
|At the coal face, I should be on strike #JeremyDeller|
|When all the poor artists have been eradicated by austerity, most probably.|
|That's Nick from Blast Theory and Jason Bruges, both male digital artists.|
A discussion with David Bowie's photographer. Again, he said that he got to work with David because he was a bit cheeky and asked. Easy to do if you're a healthy white male with no caring responsibilities at all, and you get paid to do it. Not so easy if no one wants to pay you, and Universal Credit.
|You can't see him, he is hiding behind Maryanne Hobbs!|
|There he is!|

Perhaps they should get together and sort out the Grantium application so that I can get funding.
