Amazing Amsterdam

I have been to Amsterdam a few times in the past but haven't been back since the 90s.  What a delight to re-discover this unique city: so clean, architecturally beautiful, friendly, and, apart from the speed the bikes go, so safe!  We were there for five days and had the time of our lives, walking, eating, giggling and gigging................

I visit a new yoga retreat in Ibiza for relaxing, raw food & raving!

It's that time of the year when we start thinking about booking a healthy holiday!  So here's one I'd love to share with you. You know how much I love Ibiza so when I was invited to visit the new Mind, Body, Retreats for a few days last October, I jumped on that 'plane as fast as security would allow. What I didn't expect, apart from the awesome yoga, was relaxing, raw food & raving.........

My first Podcast interview, for the U.S.

 

I am so proud to have been interviewed by the lovely Elaine Benoit for her podcast this week.  Her husband actually found me on Instagram and we finally did a Skype interview a few weeks ago.  It was huge fun, so if you want to hear me talking the hind legs off a donkey, telling Elaine about my chain-smoking, hard-drinking days in TV and Radio, how I got into health and why I don't feel invisible anymore, then you should enjoy this podcast. 

Goodwood Revival, 2017.

We were unlucky, for my first Goodwood Revival, torrential rain showers, wind & mud on the first day of this famous 3 day Festival!  Everyone dresses in vintage for this important date in the calendar - some wisely put carrier bags around their vintage shoes!  So glad I took my 50s coat and wore little pink socks to keep my footsies warm.  As for my hair, the gorgeous housewife curls I had done especially for the day, drooped within a couple of hours!

Eat, Drink, Sleep, Walk: in Bournemouth!

This summer I, plus one, was invited by the Bournemouth Tourist Office to spend a couple of days in the jewel of Britain's South Coast.  My parents used to holiday in Bournemouth, in the 50s, so I have wonderful memories of playing on the lovely sandy beach there. And hot summers|!  Despite living in pebbly Brighton, down the road, I still go back whenever I can. The last time was a couple of years ago, on my own, to see Noel Gallagher in concert. More on that trip here.
