One of the areas of the gallery housed a large magnetic board covered in words and phrases from which visitors were invited to spell out their dreams and, seeing as how we had kids with us [who we could use as cover]we didn't mind getting a bit interactive!

If you'd like to share your dreams and wishes projects then that'd be lovely, just leave me a comment or a link and ...
....if you have any tips on how I can achieve a more sunshine-y state without me having to emigrate then do tell!
