It’s nearly time for Port Eliot Festival 2014!

July 23, 2014 My Life in England

The Port Eliot Festival, held in the grounds of the home of the Earl of St Germans, in Cornwall, was on hiatus last year, but returns with a bang this Thursday – Sunday. It’s quite lovely – only 5000 or so people, with flower shows, spelling bees (2012′s was hosted by Dominic West – I [...]

Hello from The Caledonian Sleeper

July 18, 2014 My Life in England

I was planning to blog properly from the Edinburgh – London sleeper but I forgot that these rather wonderful old slam door trains were built pre the digital age (I’m guessing 1970s) and there are no plug sockets. That means that I don’t have enough juice to write much more than a brief couple of [...]

Royal Ascot Ladies Day: Wearing Suzannah and Edwina Ibbotson

July 16, 2014 My Life in England

  (Wearing Suzannah, and Edwina Ibbotson) I think for the first time ever, I had a win at Ascot. After a cracking time on opening day with Brig, as a guest of the racecourse, I returned on Ladies Day with my friends at Longines, the official timekeepers, for lunch in their box, and what turned out to [...]

A weekend in London from Fischer’s to Lemonia

After last week’s dashing about from pillar to post, I dedicated this weekend to seeing friends and family, exercise and beating my flat into submission. I had a lovely long lie-in on Saturday, before waking with a jolt at 0930hrs, casually glancing at my phone and realising with horror that I had booked myself into [...]

Summer of Fun: The Wilderness Masquerade 2013

July 7, 2014 My Life in England

It’s hard to believe that it is only a month until this year’s Wilderness Festival, when the memories of last year’s seem so fresh (links to all my stories are at the bottom of this post). I think it’s fair to say that Rachel and I explored every corner of Wilderness 2013. We arrived on [...]

The world’s shortest press trip

June 26, 2014 My Life in England

So on Tuesday I went on the world’s shortest press trip: two hours sitting on an orange bus before de-planing and heading home again. Thank you French air traffic control. You really are dicks. I was supposed to be flying to Mahon on Menorca, for a 24hr trip to visit the home of lovely Pretty [...]

Midsummer in the English Countryside (and in Putney)

June 22, 2014 My Life in England

I often don’t quite notice when Midsummer falls, but this year it was the most perfect sunshine-y day that one could not fail to register and luckily I was in the Northamptonshire countryside to enjoy the day, and with friends in the evening. On Friday afternoon, after a morning pinging between a Burberry presentation at [...]

June 19, 2014 LLG Fashion

On Tuesday I headed to Royal Ascot, as a guest of the racecourse. I decided to wear Suzannah again this year, and she made me the most ravishing navy blue silk radzmir coat dress.

Taste of London 2014: Chicken necks to Shake Shack by way of Laurent-Perrier & pizza

June 18, 2014 LLG Food

(Fried chicken necks with lemon and garlic at Duck & Waffle.) This evening I escaped from the office for a couple of hours to meet Miss P at the preview evening for this year’s Taste of London in Regents Park – handily located a brisk ten minute walk from me. She and I first visited [...]
