Tate Tuesday







A few days ago I saw some pictures from the Cildo Meireles exhibition on a blog somewhere. When I showed them to the hubby he suggested that we go down to Tate Modern to have a look for ourselves. This never happens, as one of the things he can't stand is being dragged around certain types of exhibitions. I have learnt over the years that this is something I should do on my own or with other people, so you can understand how pleased I was that he wanted to come with me. Within two seconds of stepping into the exhibition I realised that we'd made a huge mistake! Conceptual art practically sums up everything that my man hates about art, and I'm not a huge fan of it either. We must have zoomed through it in 20 minutes, but I still had fun sneaking out the new Ixus and putting it through its paces. Funnily enough seeing three guys by the escalators and snapping St Paul's being beamed up (spotted by the hubby) was far more rewarding than what we actually went down there for :)

OK OK, enough rambling for today and more importantly:

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you! I really want to say thank you for all your words of kindness and encouragement throughout the year. It's been so nice to "meet" you in this space. I had no idea how fun blogging was until I had a go myself! Hope you have a great evening and that 2009 will be a good vintage for us all. Cheers!
