L1007376.jpgLadies and Gentleman, before I start editing all my photos from the road trip to the South of France in the Aston Martin Cygnet, I thought I would show you a link or two to my Grand Prix de Monaco Historic 2012 gallery and allow you to listen to my vantage point at Rascas, a truly fabulous bend on the Formula 1 circuit.

Articles in Classic Car magazine, Huffington Post and some photos on the Octane magazine blog soon to come.

Today, for those of you who don’t know is International Dance Day, a day when the world sees bodies literally come out of the woodwork (or in my case the lavatory – more about that later). Sprightly young things around our globe were moving to the beat of the drum, twisting to their emotions and breathing on alternate pulses, so that we the unrelenting public could simply stand and stare. For some, today was an experience that they will never forget, a way of working in dance that in years to come they will appreciate  the interruptions and endless streams of children, and in the Museum Civico Bassano, the two hour sessions of improvisation repeated.

Today on my travels around The Outer Hebrides, (for BBC Woman’s Hour), I was invited as a guest on the Drive Time radio program at Isles FM.  Armed with my Harris Tweed book I went to visit the team at the radio station to have my first EVER live radio interview.

I remember the casual chats that Richard Bacon holds during his radio shows and imagined it would be just like them, so at ease I sat at the corner of the desk opposite the presenter ready for my 5 minutes of fame.
