Baukjen here. Friday evening, we went to one of my favourite London restaurants - The Ivy. As always, the service and food was wonderful and our favourite Maitre D' (Nigel) was there, it was lovely to see him. We went with Andre who is the best company you could ask for. And I spotted Boris Becker who really is very handsome in real life.
On Saturday, Vanessa went to Zermatt with her family for a week of skiing. My two eldest children (Oliver and Sebastian) had left the day before with their grandparents to visit one of my brothers and his family in Boston. So, Geoff and I were in London with our youngest, Pippa (2 years old). Normally we have the three kids, so Pippa loved having us to herself. We spent hours drawing, playing and watching American Idol (I secretly love the show -and Simon Cowell's comments - and my boys have no interest in it whatsoever so it was a dream to see Pippa dancing away and clapping everytime people clapped on the show.) Sunday morning London was covered in a thick layer of snow. Absolutely beautiful. However for some reason we had electrical problems so called in the electricians to fix everything. All is sorted now but it was a pity to have to cancel sunday lunch with friends we were looking forward to seeing.
Today we moved Pippa's cotbed out of her room and replaced it with a real kids bed. She was so excited, she put in around 10 books, every cuddly toy in her room and then jumped in to bed to sing to her dolls. A happy moment for her (and us).
I hope you have a happy week, Baukjen
