I've dined out out in Attleborough. I've removed radishes from my dad's allotment. I've watched my niece perform on stage at the Theatre Royal. And I've been to Sainsbury's (that's the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, which is an aircraft-hangar-style building on the main UEA campus, in Norwich, by the lake, quite huge it is, one of Norman Foster's first commissions back in the late 1970s, full of art collected by Robert Sainsbury the grocery millionaire, most of it old, some very very old, most of it objects rather than paintings, things like ancient stone hippos and humanoid sculptures, there's also a special exhibition at the moment on Basketry, you wouldn't think basketry would be very interesting, but actually they've curated a wide variety of most interesting crafty bits, from Peruvian canoes to bespoke arty commissions, the exhibition continues downstairs, a most amazingbuilding, well ahead of its time, you don't see Tesco doing anything cultural like this, but the shop doesn't sell baked beans.
