Highlights from December 2016
1 December 2016
I attended the Arab Women’s Black Tie awards dinner at the 5 star Jumeriah Carlton in Knightsbridge. David Stringer Lamarre, Chairman of the IOD city certainly looked after me very well. Such a gentleman. Had a great evening and even met M.P. Lady Victoria Borwick, a charming lady.
3 December 2016
Evening musical soiree at a friend’s residence in Kensington. Great music of Beethovan. Played by the quartet of four friends, one of them is my lovely daughter who is the second violinist. The hostess even cooked a lovely supper for all 20 people. All in all great music, food and company. At 97 years of age, even Lady Jean Abbothnot joined the fun. What a fantastic lady. I hope at 97 I could be like her!
8th December 2016
I attended the Global Thinkers Forum 2016 awards for excellence gala. It was held at the IOD in Pall Mall. It was a great Black Tie Event rubbing shoulders with some middle eastern royalty. The Founder, Elizabeth Fillipi orchestrated the event seamlessly.
9th December 2016
Fundraising with Duchess Williams-Nonga from the Bahamas for Hurricane Matthew. Donated a necklace for them for their charity auction.
31st December 2016
Attended the Glen Miller show at the Barbican. Had a lovely New Year’s dinner at the Côte and later saw the New Year in with a glass of champagne.
