Visual Arts: The last exhibitions I went to see were Wolfgang Tillmans and Jean Nouvel. The Jean Nouvel pavilion was wonderful and the Wolfgang Tillmans exhibition was very exciting. I also saw the Fiona Banner installation at the Tate Britain, which I also think was good and impressive.

Of course Katie White finishes with "That's Not My Name", the 2008 number one single set to be the Ting Tings' signature song for the rest of their pop life. And the confirmation that this band have really hit a nerve doesn't come from the Ivor Novello Award their debut album, We Started Nothing, won days before this gig, or the iPod advertising campaign that has burrowed them into US hearts and minds. It comes in the melodic massed singing of the song's chorus by the intently staring women packed down the front. This is an adult version of the "Girl Power" White fell for when she bought her Spice Girls pencil case as a child.

Madeira's exports comprise a motley bunch – fortified wine, cake, and Cristiano Ronaldo. You can hardly escape the epicurean offerings in the capital, Funchal, from cellar tours and wine tastings to bottle-filled shops (Madeira cake doesn't originate from the island but was devised to be eaten with the wine). Yet the island's Mr Bling – the winger for whom Manchester United paid £12m? Don't expect billboards or posters. This sleepy Atlantic island just doesn't seem that interested.
