george michael concert – hotel weekend break


My ex work colleague Lorraine lit up my phone this morning before I had even finished my muesli…I have got to see him, I have still got a crush on him after all this time and despite his “history”. I take it you mean George I ventured – with flash back images of her boogieing round the handbags to ” wake me up before you go go”. Absolutely I know he will never be mine but I can still dream. He “George Michael”  has announced his final 2 concerts at Earls Court in August. Now when Lorraine had this crush she was a mere child herself, now almost a gran I did have to wonder about the enduring power of the teenage crush. I presume there will be a gang of you and you will want rail tickets and an overnight in a hotel as well I asked, cereal spoon poised to take down all the details. Have you had a ridiculous teenage crush you still harbour – do let let me know I might even tell you about mine … a clue it involved lots of tartan !

black tie luxury london weekend for rotary club


My former colleague and dear friend contacted me from Fife. The Rotary Club fancies a weekend knees up in London, sometime in the Autumn. We did it a few years ago and it was a great success. Can you recommend something? We want first class rail travel, coach transfers between hotel, station etc, a top london theatre show matinee performance and a black tie dinner dance at the Ritz on the Saturday night.

Well within a couple of  hours I had the whole thing sorted and a great deal for him at  under £300 per person. So watch out London you are due to be invaded by the Scots in autumn who are going to paint the town red…Reply back if you have advice on what else they should do to make the most of their weekend south of the border.
