yvonne and deac

this happens when you google your own husband just to find out from facebook or other wonderful toys whether he is actually going to make the dinner he promised for tonight (twitter hasn't reached us backwater zombies yet) or that he is still friends with you or what he actually looks like. what he actually looked like was also a revelation...good to know i'd have fallen for him then as well. cute!!!

well - I certainly didn't look nearly as composed as this young lady with her bike when a car ignored my right of way in waterloo and crashed into me last week...not much fun, let me tell you...

best birthday presents ever

not that it is something to shout about - being yet another year older - but even birthdays become bearable if you get that special treatment:

breakfast made by daughter with candles and cakes and chocolate decorations and happy birthday sung by husband and then these presents (brace yourself!):

a very very pretty orchid (probably the prettiest I have seen for a long time) AND 2 hand painted stones AND a voucher for a new cake ring

AND a voucher for a self knitted shawl AND five lion bars AND another voucher for a cake (which beautifully materialized the next day) AND a little something in the garden (see pics) by
giles kent.

How cool is that??!!

sweden's got talent

...and that's no exaggeration - beautiful solveig not only hit london fashion week as a model with a show in somerset house a couple of weeks ago but has just flown back into town again for the london film festival, and we are crossing our fingers that this talented young woman who devides her time between old europe and los angeles just get's the right deal this time. as so often: watch this space!
