Isn't life such a whirlwind? I so enjoy it! not enough time to update you all on what I am doing but busy organising various events for Circa ( and the Savvy Club ( This off course on top of the events for the Rotary, Anglo-Belgian Organisations, various galleries, clubs, charities and embassies. I thought that the Cercle Francois stepped up with the wonderful presentation by Lalique last month and we had this great tasting of chocolates by Galler this month. In June, David will talk about the Cote d'Azur which is appropriate as I will be leaving for the area just after the talk!

Forgotten! We went to Helsinki for the Eurovision! Last year we went as accredited journalist for a website in Greece that is now redundant but I was there as a translator, this was fun. This year we went by our own steam and Helsinki is a lovely city, albeit a bit small. Eurovision itself is becoming quite expensive with tickets costing €250 each for the final and we went to a few rehearsal and semi final too. Eurovision is a great way to get to know people from all over the world in a very short space of time. Yes there are quite a few nerds too but never dangerous, just funny. In our hotel, we were in the room next to Virka (the Ukrainian song) and breakfast was fun to watch both teams from Russia and Ukraine ignoring each other blatantly.

Must dash now I am going to Glyndebourne!
