I am in Munich where I have not been since I lived here for a year more than a decade ago. It is lovely to be in Europe; the sky is grey, the food seems fresher and the wine does not taste like boiled sweets. This morning I start my gruelling shopping tour.
I was the last person to leave the plane yesterday. Normally I am itching to get off. But I was watching Changeling starring Angelina Jolie. It was incredible. I had to leave about a minute from the end because the aircraft was empty but luckily someone else on the press trip told me what happens. It is a true story and unlike many films based on true stories I read this morning that Changeling is actually totally based on fact, most of it taken from court transcripts. See it if you can.
Bea continues to show huge literary promise with the following bedtime story she told her father last night:

Her mummy was a great writer. Her daddy was a writer too, but mainly
he played golf…
Give that girl a column!
