Paint, Watching and Dry came to mind while at the cookery demo. What with mono-lingual Austrian chef being questioned by a guest with a broad south African accent, it was pure luck if the answer matched the question! Weirdly not hungry – strange when you consider am on a daily diet of around 400 calories. Finally met one of my table companions – softly spoken blonde from Bath, but when she got up it was clear she was recuperating from a major accident as she could hardly walk poor thing. There are quite a few people here who are either recuperating or hoping to cure a long held health issue. Everyone (guests and staff) are very friendly, you find yourself chatting to all manner of people as you wander about in your towelling robe. Which is what most of us do for most of the day – strolling to our next massage, pilates class or medical appointment. Languished for an hour in capable hands of a Shiroabhuyanga (head and neck) masseuse – very relaxing, very oily. Headache seems to be subsiding, so shall watch Dancing At Lughnasa tonight in bed if I can work out how to use the DVD thingy.
Annabel – I thought London hairdressers were a must when we moved to the country, but have found someone brilliant locally – which saves me a lot of time, travel expenses and is half the price of the salon I used to frequent in Mayfair. Agree with you about culture though, there’s something for everyone in London. And London does multiculturalism way better too. Hope your haircut went well…x
