The Olympic ceremony, whilst totally bonkers, was a thought-provoking, acid trippy glimpse into our social history, highlighting everything of which we were once proud, but which has slowly but surely been eroded away, dismantled and crushed by various administrations.
It was a celebration of our culture, of our hearts and soul and I well and truly doff my cap to Mr Danny Boyle.
Since then, I've been glued to the telly. For a not-very-sporty person, I'm quite amazed at my interest in swimming, cycling, football, hockey, gymnastics, archery and the totally bonkers game of handball.
My offerings to you this week are less sporty, but they are ring shaped (tenuous link huh?).
I bagged three costume rings in my local charity shop for £1.50 a pop. Three beauties for less than a fiver. I'm particularly pleased because one of them still had it's Accessorize label on showing it's original price of £12.
Which is your favourite?
