Oh what a night

On Monday I took a break from the harvest to go and pick up the Domaine Jones Fitou gold medal and trophy at the very prestigious International Wine Challenge dinner at the Hilton on Park Lane.  And I definitely made a day of it.  Up at 5 am to get my plane from Montpellier, arrived in Luton at midday, collected by my sister Sue, borrowed her bright pink lovely dress, off to Milton Keynes for haircut, quick make over at John Lewis, including very bright pink lipstick and train down to London.  Met David, our wine consultant on the 28th floor of the Hilton and had quick G+T before going to the very best glitzy, sparkly evening that I have had in a very long time.  Then it was off to my sister's, Jen, in Clapham, a couple of hours sleep and back on the plane to get back to harvest.

Now I am not quite sure when I will be able to use my lipstick again, and all the waves have dropped out of my hair but I will long remember what an absolutely fabulous evening I had.
