  Dear friends. Mother's Day in the UK is early this year, on March 10.  I always go to Plymouth to see my mum, who's 91, and we usually go out for lunch.  Readers in the USA and Australia may be scratching their heads over the date. Your Mother's Day is on 12 May. The reason for the UK date being different each year is that our celebration is rooted in the Christian observance of Lent, with Mothering Sunday taking place on the fourth Sunday, exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.  Here's a sneak preview of what I'll be wearing, thanks to my friends at Cotton Trad ..read more

  Dear friends.  January is relentless! Five Mondays this year, no less.

I booked a few activities in advance. And we were lucky to have quite a few blue sky days, which are stunning in winter.  What's coming up? Two art exhibitions, two ballets, David Bowie's old haunts, a meet-up of colourful ladies and a moon walking experience ..read more
