Easter Week-end - Clapham , Nofit Tabu Circus & Shah Abbas

Wow........does nt the Easter fly. As soon as the week-end is over and then the sun comes out. Typical UK. Still love it though. Spent some wholesome time with my Family and Friends. Great club in Clapham called Aquum. Guys and Girls think this will be one for the Summer www.aquum.co.uk . Thanks for the drinks Chaps.

Saturday was a refreshing and inspirational day spent gardening with my Beau and her Sister ( Thanks Girls). In the evening Daniel , the Girls and I took a great Client and son to see the intiguing Nofit Tabu Circus www.roundhouse.org.uk/nofitstate/ . Just like a Smirnoff advert or a surreal dream. Not as good Cirque De Soleil but worth the watch!!!! Afterwards we had a great dinner at Gilgamesh in Camden.www.gilgameshbar.com . Not as good a Hakkasan but lots of good furniture and killer cocktails......

Took my niece to the British Museum to see the Iranian Exhibition of 16th Century Ruler Shah Abbas ...... WORTH A LOOK IN for those who enjoy History. http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/all_current_exhibitions/shah_abbas.aspx Loved It !!!

Loire Valley For My Cousin's 40TH

On the week-end of the 4th April my beau and I were kindly invited to the Loire Valley, France by our cousin Koya for his 40th Birthday. Only 18 of us in the middle of the Loire. Fine wines, cheeses, gourmet dining and luxurious surroundings. Matt & Stephanie opened their beautiful Manoir to us. Dancing till late helped my diet but my constant eating did nt much. The real surprise was finding Leonardo De Vinci's tomb at the magnificent Castle in Amboise......what a revaltion.

We stayed at a most beautiful farmhouse near Hermitages on the way to Tours called La Boissiere www.laboissiere.eu/Index.aspx . Great place for Kids and cycling. Also awesome wines from Maison Arragon.

Good shout Koya ....what a charmed time xx
