I have always been a fan of London based Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova. Last Friday she appeared on the Jonathan Ross show on BBC1 and I was absolutely mesmerised by her. She looked stunning but not only that she was eloquent, charming and so gracious in her manner. Still only 28, married with three young children, she certainly has her feet on the ground, modelling full-time and also raising funds for various charities including her own Naked Heart Foundation which aims to build and provide inspiring playgrounds in the poorest areas of Russia. Truly a woman of substance....

....the wedding of Charles and Diana, July 29 1981....such a huge event in London, a very happy day. I went to the wedding fireworks the night before in Hyde Park and remember watching the wedding on television so clearly....this photo makes me think of London at its very best when everyone really came together. The same, sadly, was true of Princess Diana's funeral....people connected in the most amazing way....

I am going to dedicate this Friday Fabulousness post to the gorgeous Jackie at Home who is most definitely a London girl - and a very original one at that......and to Emily at London Zest who has moved to London from France via New York and who writes a very lovely and inspiring blog about living here and exploring the city.....I have lived here since I was six years old and she has already been to places that I haven't!

This week, as you know, has been school half-term holiday week and my children and I have been channelling our inner explorers. Totally undefeated by A LOT of rain (what's the betting that next week when they are at school it will be gloriously sunny!).....we have visited the National History Museum, climbed up the Monument, been on many red buses and the Underground, been to Harrods Food Hall and their pet department (where I had to refuse my son's request to buy two chihuahua puppies at £2000 apiece, gorgeous though they were), walked around the city A LOT, explored rather a lot of toy stores and several parks....and got pretty wet!  We did have so much fun though!

We also caught up on some movies, my daughter learned how to cook the most delicious breakfast pancakes, we visited a soft play centre (where I got to read for two.whole.hours.), saw "The Princess and the Frog".....and we still have a few more days to go....phew!

One of the loveliest moments of my week came while looking for a film to watch and finding our wedding video.....I put it on for the children to see. My son (who is just 4) is really intrigued by the whole idea of marriage at the moment for some reason and keeps telling his sister (who is almost 9) that actually she's wrong, she can marry him! Anyway, watching the video he was mesmerised and then pipes up "We aren't in this Mummy are we...."......before I could even respond, he continued "....because we're still in your heart....."
He does have my heart, that's for sure.

Happy Friday everyone!!
