Last night the V's came over for a quick dinner. They brought me champagne. Goody.
I said yes to orange sequins and pom poms.These are difficult times. Accessorise Hard. My friend R gave me that scarf which makes me love it all the more.
The crab lasagna was a hit.
I own that stripy Asos jumper M is wearing too. Great minds think alike when it comes to discounted knit wear.
B made the most perfect dessert. Look:
M's been getting up at 3 am to finalise plans for the celebrations for her house Hanworth which turned 150 years old last week. She's worked her fingers to the bone bringing it back to life after an arsonist burnt most of it in about March last year. There's even a ball this weekend which I cannot wait for. There'll be a champagne bar, an oyster bar, a martini bar and a great big band. So excited!
Meanwhile, on a serious note I got up early to watch the UN Security Council deal with the Malaysian airline disaster. I loved Frans Timmermans addressing the council (he's like the diplomat from Central Casting with a perfect voice and demeanour), especially when he looked at Julie Bishop and said "We are in this together Julie". And it was so moving when he spoke of people's wedding bands being removed and children's passports being shown. Just all so very sad.
To quote my friend Cilla:
Love Fiercely People.
