Almost free Friday

Since I do 4-days-working week during wintertime due to the problems I have at work with our a/c I had my last (for now) almost free Friday today. I only took part to my labour union’s stewards meeting in the morning and then I was free.

I went for lunch with my DH, he works in the city centre and so I met him near his work place at a restaurant called Backyard Picks which has a very good lunch buffet. Afterwards hubby went back to his work and since I was free and I hadn’t yet visited the new AmosRex museum I went there.

There’s a Magritte exhibition now and also a Dutch art group Studio Drift’s exhibition and then as a permanent display they have Finnish late impressionists pieces. I really liked everything and as I’ve long since accepted that I get easily emotional I wasn’t surprised to find myself crying over Magritte’s surrealistic works.

The Teletubby land, as we call it, is actually the museums roof windows

The first one is Magritte’s ’The Curse’ and the two-faced woman is called ’Faraway looks’ (that’s the one that made me cry). The there’s the floating concrete box ’Drifter’ and Materials exhibitons ’The Fiskars scissors’.  Fragile future didn’t want to turn upright but it’s made of dandelions and led lights which makes it awesome.

And last pic is of the museums windows. On their place used to be the long-distance bus terminal when I was a kid and teen. I remember many Scouting travels and also going to my granny’s place and waiting for the bus to arrive here. The low yellow building behind them used to be an old army barrack during the Russian reign but now there’s some City exhibitions about the city plannings.

Then I came home and saw that my darling Freddie had arrived finally! I’m so happy!
