Big Saturday….

Had a pretty spectacularly good day on Saturday. Went as the +1/spouse/partner to the Conran summer party in Berkshire. A tres English experience, though not one that I recognise as too familiar. They put on a great spread – 5* ploughmans which put an instant smile on my face. Then some cricket, high tea and a potter round Conran’s estate – a gorgeous pile with a vast veg garden – all refreshingly under-preened.

We trained it back into town to bowl over to Home House near Paddington. Sigh. So beautiful, so glamorous, so wasted on the rich. We have a secret weapon to get us into most of the world’s private drinking dens so I am going to enjoy that. And then to top it off we ended up at a house party. Not enough of those these days….I would recommend checking out Home House over the Open House weekend, it’s got a real juicy history.

And Sir T Conran’s pile…
