Went to Lewisham in the morning, again all the same. Went to Army and Navy, Sainsbury’s, Next, WH Smith. Dropped a note off to Steve. Came home and rang Deirdre. Nadia was over and she was coughing all over the place. I really don’t like her, JR is different now too that they are a pair, and I don’t think I like him as much.
Anyway, Deirdre and I went to Covent Garden, both of us tried things on but bought nothing. Had a cappuccino at Bar Italia, and noticed Georgie Fame was playing at Ronnie Scott’s all week. Then to Harrods. D bought skin stuff. Then the food hall – brilliant! Bought things for dinner. And off we went to Noreen's flat in Kennington. Tuna and walnut mousse with water crackers followed by fresh pasta and pesto – yum. Chatted and chatted.
Then we went to the Apollo to meet Jo and David (?), sister Trudy from the US and hubby, and Simon. Went to Blue Poles for a drink and then the play Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell which was brilliant, despite my having the worst seat in the house. Peter O’Toole is wonderful – and to have seen him in the flesh!
I was exhausted. D drove me home and came in for coffee, talked til quite late. A good day.
