I cannot lie: I had all the fun today making these Easter nests for three of my godchildren – two of them are a bit young for chocolate excess. After all, what kind of mother doesn’t want someone providing the means to create crazy sugar-ramped children over the Easter holidays? *smirks*

(The view from the restaurant at Viva Mayr) I arrived at Salzburg in Austria on Saturday afternoon, after the usual bunfight at Gatwick and delayed EasyJet flight, longing for my bed and a week of restorative cleansing at the new Viva Mayr clinic in Altausee.

London: Dog Friendly Restaurant, Pub & Place Guide

March 24, 2015 Dogs

(Lettice, observing my lunch – mushroom gnocchi – at Market, Camden.) Darling Posetta Baddog RIP was most definitely not a dog who went places. She wasn’t interested in socialising: her main focus was her family, food and tennis balls, and we hung out on Hampstead Heath and in the Regent’s Park. Not so with Princess Lettice. […]
