Royalty awaits II

Well D2 didn't actually get to MEET the King but he was sitting in the front row as she and her pals presented their paintings to the conference speakers in front of an audience of hundreds. She looked very serious up there but explained this afterwards with,' the lights and heat on the stage were just as much as I could bear.' And that was for five minutes. So, I think she may not be destined for a life in entertainment after all. On to Plan B.

We did see the King leave the theatre and get into his stretch limo from which he gave us a royal wave. I wonder when D2, some day, walks down the aisle to marry his grandson, will he remember the little girl with the grim face and slightly stained red dress. Oh that's Plan B by the way.

Tonight I'm off to the Irish Embassy for a reception in honour of St Patrick's Day. There will be no more hob-nobbing for the rest of the week though. The sun is shining, the ice is melting, and - shh don't tell anyone - I think Spring might finally be on its way.

                              HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY

I haven't got one yet Mel, but am hoping one of the other mums will send some to me.

Interesting plan B girl!

Thanks all. Had a lovely evening at the embassy but was grateful to be driving, as the drink was flowing and I have no self-control. Wednesday would have been ruined if it hadn't have been for the car keys. Plan C, by the way, involves marriage to the Danish prince and an honorary Countess title for her mother ;-)
