Watching me, watching you


Has anyone else noticed the astonishing resemblance between Andy Sturgeon's 2006 Chelsea Garden and the design for the new Big Brother House. Although wait - haven't we seen that shape before somewhere?

Diarmud Gavin used it for a summer house in one of the gardens on his long axed program some years ago.

It also reminds me very much of the brown and orange wallpaper we used to have in my parents' house in the early 1970s.

Yes Diarmuid used it on that summer house and then Andy used the same shape for the construction in his Chelsea garden. Diarmuid wasn't very happy with this as he, of course, invented that shape! Maybe he will sue Big Brother or maybe he is appearing in Big Brother.

I don't even want to think about the wallpaper HappyM! After I had grown out of my girlie pink bedroom my Mum asked me what colours I would like it decorating.. I wanted autumn colours what I got was the worlds most nightmarish hideous brown and orange curtains with some large circular design on them. I felt sick every time I went into the room and eventually had to leave home - which may have been the ruse all along!
