Jasmine’s blog: Willie spotting!

img_6519-7

I said earlier,  when I was talking about my degree that I was a bit obsessed with sex. A couple of weeks ago someone was talking about how octopus 🐙 tentacles sprawl out and I got confused as thought they were talking about octopus testicles. Then today spent whole day thinking spotting Willie sculptures they don’t look like Willie’s! Only when I came to writing this did I realise that it was actually Wullie. Apparently Oor Wullie is a cartoon character that has been appearing in Sunday post since 1930s and is still popular today.

All the sculptures are of Wullie sitting on a bucket. There are two sizes some big ones that will be auctioned off at the end of summer to raise money for Scottish children’s hospitals. Then small ones that were created by schools and they go back to schools at end of summer. I know from Sheffield that after auctioned off you still see some of the sculptures. A few years ago they had an elephant sculpture trial. There is Arctic Monkey 🐵 one in Winter Gsrdens; the band came from Sheffield.

Then one a roof of Great Gatesby bar on Division Street. In a building called the diamond at uni there is a moth sculpture which was part of a trial that was mainly in Hull to honour Amy Johnson. Amy was born in Hull but studied at Sheffield university. An inspirational brave female pilot.

Saw absolutely loads and hope to see more tomorrow on last free day before start the training to work in box office for Fringe over the summer.
