My magic moment this week is about our trip last week to the V&A to see the David Bowie exhibition.
By the time we had made our way with the buggy from North London to the museum to meet my Mum, I was shattered.
As buggy-friendly as London is supposed to be, I did not feel it at all.
In Kings Cross, to go from the Northern Line to the Piccadilly line was torture as we made our way from one lift at one end of the station to the other end.
I normally wear my baby – to the non-hippy amongst you – I’m a sling kind of mummy. However, with gem now fully in the double digits in terms of her weight, even my Ergo carrier is proving to be a tad bit uncomfortable.
Anyway – I digress – my magic moment involved enjoying the Bowie exhibition tonnes more than I expected to. This is despite not being a Bowie fan at all and being absolutely shattered by the time we got there.
It was magic taking Gem round the exhibition and seeing her eyes grab every light or her ears try to pick up every sound as we made our way round the exhibition.
My highlights from the exhibition:
1) The fashion – the man had an amazing array of costumes going back decades, including designs by Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood to name a few
2) The pictures – David Bowie has been successful in reinventing himself over and over through the decades
3) The concert clips – The man is one of the original superstars, with his massive concerts, performance style and overall showmanship being truly amazing.
4) The causes – He stood up for the underdog when it wasn’t fashionable.
5) The confidence – He continues to re-invent himself and is almost impossible to pigeon-hole him. The picture above shows how androgynous he is and how confident he is to be this way.
It was magic for me because I went in flustered and exhausted and came out exhilarated and excited about life. If this isn’t a magic moment, then I don’t know what is.
