Catching Up

I'm very conscious of when I don't blog for a while. I hate not having the time to do it. 

Actually, this week has been the quietest I've had in ages and I have enjoyed nothing more than coming home at about 8 pm and just collapsing in front of the television with my favourite supper. Its very unlike me to sit still and concentrate on something on TV so its been good practice. I've decided Wednesdays have been the best - Great British Bake Off and Scott and Bailey... #gripped

How do you think I celebrated watching the GBBO Final ? With a Cronut of course, from CocoMaya...! It was exactly a year since I had my first one so it was Happy 1st Cronut Anniversary to me. 

In previous weeks, I have been doing something almost every night of the week, which was fun but also totally unrealistic and was making me exhausted. Although - they were ALL really amazing things - like meeting Stephen Fry and going to see Dawn French live on her tour. I KNOW.

The concert in Covent Garden in aid of Charlotte's Helix was incredible. 

This weekend I am doing a TEN MILE walk for Mental Health Awareness. Please pray for sunny weather. Will blog about it properly next week. Its been organised by CLASP. Hopefully, it will help stamp stigma. I'm also going to see Matilda the Musical, which apparently is out of this world and has been top of my bucket list for ages. So excited. 

Ruby Wax is at TED talks in Rio, Brazil. I AM SO JEALOUS. Emma Freud popped there too as Richard Curtis has a film premiere out there - she tweeted "TED talks are as brilliant as I always imagined. Like Disneyland for the brain." Very good summary. 

I'm still enjoying my peanut butter / banana on toasted bagel breakfast. Heaven. 

Speaking of breakfasts, this morning I finally got to meet the extraordinary Rahla Xenopoulos for a cup of tea on Portobello Road. She lives in Cape Town and is the most an extraordinary writer. It was a real privilege for me to sit opposite her for an hour. 

Finally - I just LOVE this video by the BBC - see how many famous faces you can spot -
