I am indeed fortunate that I have been invited to a day’s racing at Ascot on Saturday and I am much looking forward to some exciting racing, both there and on TV. It is a small window of R&R after a hectic week, which has seen the opening of The Lost Boy, a great new pub. bar and restaurant in Farnham, a pretty little town in Surrey. Named in homage to JM Barrie, who had a house nearby, I got into the mood, by watching Finding Neverland, a truly delightful piece of work. Sadly I am one of those people, who can burst into tears at a nicely portrayed piece of pithy loss. This with Johny Depp and Kate Wincyette was just such a thing.
I have also been helping my old friend Peter Jordan, the award-winning Time and Newsweek photojournalist who had captured a lot of Mugabe’s rise to power from Mozambique bush to Government House. He is holding his first retrospective exhibition in Bampton and his images lie among many of my memories of the 70s and 80s.
I’ve also been helping with something for the IJF – and I will give you more on that when appropriate, but suffice it to say, it made me laugh, and this week that has helped.
None of this helps us find winners however, so onwards and sideways!
