Haven’t written in a while as we’ve been gallivanting around Northern Ireland and then I took myself off to Walberswick
I’m not sure if I have Brexit- anxiety , eco-anxiety or am just plain scared , but with all this horrible , nasty ,destructive , narcissistic ( Boris ) politics going on , there was one voice that hit home .
It came from the newly elected speaker ,Sir Lindsay Hoyle’ and in his opening speech said this
”…..I also want to say to my family…
( there’s a difficult part I want to get over )
There is one person who is not here.
My daughter,Natalie. I wish she’d been here ,We all miss her as a family , no more so than her mum, Miriam.
I’ve got to say , she was everything to all of us .
She will always be missed ,but she will always be in our hearts.”

More beautiful photos

I urge you to beg , steal or borrow a ticket for tonight’s Carmina Victoriana at the wonderful , atmospheric and beautiful Wilton’s Music Hall .
It’s the best thing I’ve seen in ages . made me laugh and cry and sing to some of mine ( and Jane’s ) favourite songs …
‘Maybe this Time’ ….from Cabaret. ‘Losing my Mind’ – also Liza Minnelli .’Chandelier by Sia’ ( After Jane’s time – but I know she would have loved it )
‘Wind beneath my Wings’ …and lot’s of other cheesy stuff .
Thank you to Tom Glitter ,Miss Hope Springs ,Diane Chorley,ACM,Glamrou and Dinah Lux .
Bloody fab

We went to Soupy on Sunday .
I got talking to one of the regular guests ,James. Sitting on the other side of him was a female guest I had never seen before . James seemed to know her and introduced me with ‘I don’t know her name , but she’s Lithuanian ‘.I asked her her name – Karolina , then introduced myself and then proceeded to tell her everything I knew about Lithuania … which isn’t much . But as I went to Vilnius a couple of years ago , it was an opportunity for me to do a bit of brain gym and share everything I remembered of the city .So in over-emphasised sign language I attempted to describe the beauty of the 3 huge crucifixes on the hill , the snow , The Contemporary Art Centre ,The ice on the River Arno , my favourite bar ,Spunka ( struggled with the sign language for this one ) etc etc .
Karolina nodded and smiled and then said 2 words ‘ I’m Polish ‘.

I often think the students we have staying with us get fed up of us droning on … things to do in London / where do you go on holiday? / spread the word in your country – we HATE Brexit / you told me you eat everything – how come you leave onions, chilli. jacket potato skins etc on the side of your plate ?… i could go on …
But the last 3 young Italian boys ,must have been listening , because on their last morning ,I came down to a note saying
‘We’ve had lots of fun together in these 2 weeks and to show you our gratitude, we’ve bought some presents.
Signed Andrea, Fillipo and Francesco
and on the hall table were 2 gifts ..
For me , wrapped in green Gaunt Book’s paper was a book ‘The Unfinished Palazzo’- Life, Love and Art in Venice
For John , An LP =Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.’

We were very very touched
