Last night, I had the great pleasure of attending the HarperCollins Summer Party at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The party was in the courtyard which made a lovely venue with its fountains and fabulous architecture.
There were even musicians out in the water!
And the dessert display was just too tempting for words. Here I am with author and pal, Giselle Green, making sure we’re first in line for the strawberries and cream!
I also had the pleasure of saying hello to TV historian, Dan Snow, whose recent programme, Little Ships, was so moving.
And it was great to meet some fellow authors and chat to the brilliant Avon team at HarperCollins. Here’s my fabulous editor, Kate, with the lovely author, Melanie Rose.
My husband and I also managed to have a very quick trip to Lyme Regis this week where I was tempted by one of my favourite shops – Pop Goes the Weasel – and bought a delcious sun hat the colour of a strawberry milkshake. Unfortunately, Molly’s also taken a shine to it but I don’t mind sharing.
But I’m sorry to report that I was a victim of crime in Lyme! I was walking along Marine Parade enjoying a raspberry pavlova ice-cream when a seagull swooped down from the heavens and mugged me! We’re forwarding the following photo to Crimestoppers…
… and would like to warn fellow ice-cream eaters to beware!
