Festive times!

The Christmas room spray is out, the online shopping has begun and I'm dreaming of (not drinking) mulled wine. I'm so ready for Christmas but can not believe how quickly this year has flown by.

This month has been a fun and crazy one...

Croissant times

It started with a quick trip to Paris to visit my boyfriend's dad, who was out there rehearsing for the big Rolling Stones gig which is coming up. Here's a shot I took of the view from the Sacré Coeur.

I did a runner and avoided the wrath of the winged wonder, but advice: Swans don't like you taking their photo!

I have been rehearsing for Children in Need at the BBC this week too. Sir Terry is on wonderful form and we are gearing up for a huge night!
