Dear All,

Hope you are doing well, I am getting better by the day although not fully restored but nearly! Here is a picture of me taken at the Arts CLub, not so long ago.

As I am starting to go and see people, I have been nearly chastised for not sending news of what is happening around. (even though I am not organising the events myself!)

Well, Wendy Harman is the Chair of the Originals prints and they have a very special private view with Sir Peter, Lady and Rosy Blake next Monday 16th February, tickets are very reasonable at £ 35 pp to include Champagne and Buffet. Please call Chris Drake for ticket purchase on 020 8699 5574. Do mention my name as this is an exclusive evening.

Tomorrow on the 10th February, Mary another Belgian Chocolate Maker opens officially at the Westfield Shopping Centre and the Ambassador and people from the Anglo-Belgian Community will attend at the same time Danusha Fine Arts in Shepherd's Market opens its new exbition and the Business Travel Show starts at Earl's Court.

on the 12th I see my surgeon and there are some African dances in the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital lobby. In the evening I will attend a private screening of Milk and if I can will go the Salon Prive at the Hurlingham Club.

On the 18th Ken Howard is showing at Richard Green (147 Bond Street) and will be present during the day, I look forward to seeing him again and hopefully Vera too.

on the 19th at noon Griff Rhys Jones opens the 20/21 International Art Fair at the RCA and I think that I am due at the Westbury in the evening.

The London Fashion Week starts on the 20th till the 24th and various events will happen.

On the 23rd Michael Winner speaks to the Rotary Club of London and good God, I am reading my diary here!

24th is Shrove Tuesday and there is the usual Pancake Races across the City and wold recommend the one at Guildhall,starts at noon.

There are various show that will not interest you but one event that I will attract your attention is another exclusive event for Children with Autism on the 26th February in Central London. Various work of Arts will be auctioned by Christie's Chairman, do let me know if you would like to join me on this one as this is by invitation only and it is hoped that you will invest in one or more work of Art. All proceed to Charity.`

I look forward to seeing you again soon,

Best regards,
