I spent today very excitedly running round prop-houses. Most of the big ones are in a place called Park Royal which tricks people into thinking it's just a wilderness of warehouses and storage units but is actually full of bizarre and odd things happening behind metal shutters. I get very excited when I go round these places, especially when it's for a great project like this, the photographer Nick Knight's short film which will be shown on Showstudio soon. We were on the hunt for Mullholland Drive type room props but I didn't find that blue box anywhere.

I feel slightly sad when I see these creatures, but actually they are used for all kinds of exciting things and go all kinds of exciting places. Maybe when I'm dead someone will stuff me and use me as scenery.

One of my little gifts having a well-earned moment to relax before being released back into the garden.

I'm cat-sitting this week which means I get to spend time with this beautiful creature. She looks a little distainful in this picture but she's actually very affectionate and last night bought me a mouse to prove it. She looked so pleased with herself I didn't have the heart to tell her I don't eat mice, and so I just acted very grateful until I had the chance to release the poor shaky mouse out into the garden.

Today required the transportation of 50 beautiful old mannequins from their home in Central Saint Martins to the studio where they will live over the weekend before being used in a photoshoot on Monday. After deciding against taking them back on the bus, we rented a big white van and it was my job to offer everyone Polos and shout "cyclist" very loudly whenever I saw one. Although we managed to find a parking space once we got to Saint Martins, it wasn't near enough to avoid having to walk up a busy Charing Cross Road with each one which must have looked a little odd. By the 47th go I was getting a little tired and careless and I almost bruised the shins of many people.

Innocently trying to get some work done when I suddenly had the feeling someone was watching me. I looked up to see this guilded horse silently trying to get my attention. I gave him some silver sugar-cubes which I think he approved of.

excellent lunch

This proved to be an excellent lunch. Food always tastes better when eaten off doilies.

...followed by some wonderful plastic strawberries. I went out and bought them from the most exciting shop in the world which sells just about everything you never knew you needed. Here is their website for all your fake strawberry requirements...http://www.dzd.co.uk
