Bits and pieces from this windy weekend: prints, ceramics and other covetable things at the Art & Design Market Day down at Britomart. Olympic madness - I'm loving it this time round (can't remember a thing about the last two). This morning L and I lay in a pile of pillows and blankets and watched it for three whole hours. He particularly liked the very small staunch women weightlifters but found the dressage boring. I always like watching the gymnastics and anything else involving pointed feet. But what is it with that hideous magenta Olympics logo and strange spiky typeface? Yuck. And the popularity of neon shoes? I'm looking forward to all of it, getting us through the next few rainy winter weeks.
