The Chronicles of Brixton has given me a real thirst to hear more stories and I’m fascinated to find out what, if anything, would be different if I were to carry out the same project in other places. And at other times too. Watch this space!
My favourite submission has to be the collage of Barbara Jordan, the American civil rights activist that makes up the centre of The Chronicles of Brixton. Visually it’s a really powerful image, and the things it’s introduced me to have been totally unexpected. For starters, I didn’t even know who Barbara Jordan was before so it’s opened me up to a whole new piece of history about an incredible woman who’s massively shaped the world we live in.

Goodie bags are perfectly sensible for scout meetings and other group activities in which games generate prizes or other accomplishments are rewarded with patches or certificates which will need to be carried home. These can be sadly lost in the confusion of large rambunctious occasions. Issuing everyone a goodie bag with a few items inside will eliminate some of this problem. Writing names on the goodie bags will also help.
Adult party guests often like to take home small items too. Sometimes these things don't include prizes as much as a sample of deserts for those at home. Goodie bags are a pretty good idea for cookie exchange parties. Each person brings a dozen cookies to a buffet table. They each collect one cookie from a dozen different plates. Plastic wrap and larger goodie bags are safe ways to transport these back home..

Do you sometimes feel like you never see your kids any more?
Making a basement area family-friendly may be a challenge with some basements, but it can be done. When my stepson purchased his home, the cellar was disgusting. It was a dirty pit, dark and dismal with only an area carved out for a washer and dryer. He's lived there more than 20 years now, and over that time he worked at transforming the living space into something truly delightful. There's room for his daughter to have friends over, an extra bathroom, and well-equipped home workshop. He started with nothing but unused space and worked slowly as he could afford to, and the transformation is amazing. If he can adapt his basement for his family's use, so can you!
