New use for oranges

December 13, 2011

I am accusing in the comments  section of being a dipsomaniac, but this is untrue, I have no interest whatsoever in checking car oil levels.  To be honest I have little interest in anything today, it having been  a particularly wearing girls lunch that I inadvertently gate crashed yesterday and which was still going strong at 10pm last night. I do have an excuse for gate crashing, quite a good one really,  the lunch was taking place at my home and I knew nothing about it ubtil I returned, otherwise I  would have stayed and had a couple of drinks at the golf club rather than returning home  and where I suspect I would have had some more meaningful although perhaps less interesting conversations. I may also have managed to retain most of my clothing, but that is another story, suffice to say that my wearing of lime green seems to do something to the ladies bereft of their menfolk.

Not that it wasn’t fun. It just wasn’t very highbrow as was amply illustrated by the 18 bottles of wine and Bailey’s I had to recycle  yesterday. Well, at the peak there were 9 of them although a hardcore of 6 were mainly to blame. Anyway, the working week has commenced and that nice lady decorator has gone to the UK with a huge hangover ready for another nightmare, Christmas shopping. Talking of shopping, I shall expect to see a number of you today at the Christmas fair in Sophia Antipolis, details of which can be found here. It will be one of the last 3 opportunities before Xmas to purchase those much desired signed copies of my book, the sales of which are now comfortably into 3 figures. Such was the rush on Sunday after the golf that I had to return to the car for more stock as I had naively thought that 5 copies would be enough to assuage the pent-up demand amongst REGS golfers.

As usual after events such as these, I awake to find a number of photographs on my phone for which I can find no rational explanation. What is happening here for instance? and what are two of my Christmas oranges doing in Lisa Thorntan-Allans cleavage? and why is the amply endowed (sorry Lin)  Mellissa Graves involved? I think we should be told but I suspect it will forever remain a mystery.

Christmas oranges will never be the same again

I have received news of an English Theatre Group starting to bring English theatre productions to Valbonne, It seems the first production will be on Valentines night the details of which you can see here. The first play is Neil Simon play “Barefoot in the Park” which will also involve a launch party. I know I want to go to the launch party at the very least. Also I am hoping to announce a very exciting entertainment which I hope to stage in March. More news as soon as I have it.

If you really can’t make it to Sophia today then I forgive you as long as you visit the English Book Centre in Valbonne on Friday where I shall once again be donating an hour of my time to my fans and will be signing copies of my book between 11 and 12. It is also not impossible that I shall pop in to La Pomme Rouge Deli later on for an early evening aperitif and some tapas in order to spend some of the profits.

Today is also the date for the Riviera Business Club event at Brittains restaurant in Valbonne, but as this is now sold out, come to the Currencies Direct sponsored Christmas Fair instead.
