A few months ago, I decided that we had to have color, somewhere. I figured I’d start with the kids’ room. Kid’s rooms shouldn’t be white. If for no other reason than because it’s too evocative of a blank sheet of paper.
I decided that I wanted to paint most of the room a powder blue and – the fun part – do a section of the wall with chalkboard paint.

Last week I was present at the launch of the new Bond in Motion exhibition at the Beaulieu National Motor Museum. It was a lavish affair, complete with champagne, celebrities and people who were generally dressed in much smarter clothes than I. Almost immediately I was greeted by the sight of Britt Ekland sprawled across the bonnet of an Aston Martin. Then, within a matter of minutes, I caught sight of Esther Rantzen, Colin Salmond and Eunice Gayson. I don’t recall Esther Rantzen ever being a Bond girl. Maybe she was in the concept film, Live and That’s Life?
Once the tour of the Bond vehicles was complete, I did my customary wander around the car park. You may remember that I spent a quite delightful couple of hours looking around the car park at the Goodwood Festival of Speed?
