I love the feel of Toast's new Spring catalogue, which seems to be comprised of subtle splashes of primary colours and soft sunlight. It makes me think of eating Popsicles in the sun. I do wish summer was as romantic as they make it look though. I'm ready to leave summer behind this year, and it's going out with a bang in Perth. We've been having (and about to have some more of) the kind of heat that makes you wish for freezing snow.

At least there's a lot to do here in summer, as I seem to be all about festivals lately. The French Film Festival has arrived on our shores and I'm trying to narrow down my choices. Can anyone recommend a particularly good film from the ones that are on offer?
