An Artist Date With The Chapmans...

Nice crisp day for strolling by the Serpentine. The Come and See exhibit was a bit cramped,messily laid out, with too many people, but I enjoyed it. I get pissed off with their facile jokes at times, but in general, I quite like the Chapmans.  In addition to the vitrines of teeny agonised model-train figures tormenting each other, etc. there were a lot of constructions featuring sex acts and stuff performed by crude, sloppily torn and painted cardboard figures.

H is still having physio, but isn't  fixed yet. Still, I've nagged her into doing three  bargain nights in Paris, in early April.

I reckon it might help to get her travelling confidence back.
