This week has been mainly about recovering from last. It all seemed very empty and mundane with the glamour of the Formula 1 gone…but all that is about to change.
This evening the children and I are off to Dubai to see Navi. For those of you who haven’t heard of Navi, he is the world’s most successful Michael Jackson lookalike/impersonator. I interviewed him and must say he was charming. As the interview was on the phone I can’t tell you how much like the King of Pop he looks or not, but I will tell you all after this evening.
Tomorrow night I am going to a big party at my friends Noch and Bruce’s house. Noch is one of my oldest (not in age) friends here and one of the reasons I like it here so much more than France. This is a woman who laughs, drinks, eats and sings along to bad pop songs with me. So everything a French woman is not. Added to which she speaks English, another huge advantage. In fact she is English, but English colonial, so more amusing than most.
Anyway the idea of the party is that we all come dressed as the thing we wanted to be when we were growing up. After much thinking I have decided to go as Audrey Hepburn, partly because I did always want to be her but also because my view of fancy dress is that you should wear what makes you look good and no one can ever look bad in black and white. What would you go as? I guess I won’t have to ask Navi that question if I meet him this evening…..
