bbbaA belated congratulations to all the fantastic finalists and winners at the 2016 Black British Business Awards, which took place on the 6th of October.

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Darin and Miranda at the theatre Dec 2009

A marvellous trip “up west” earlier this week, with my cousin Darin (over from Dominica visiting Europe on a work trip) to see ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof‘ at London’s Novello Theatre.

The play was just superb. The audience was so mesmerised you could have heard a pin drop throughout.

I had been really excited about seeing James Earl Jones in person but the whole cast was just excellent – especially, star of the play, our own home grown Adrian Lester of ‘Hustle‘ fame.

Alongside a lovely “flight” on the London Eye and an excellent private tour of Parliament, courtesy of Harry Cohen MP’s wonderful staff (well done, Andy Burham, who was on fire in the Commons chamber socking it to the Tories on disability benefits) , I think Darin really enjoyed herself.

Thank you again, dear, for a lovely few days.

I hope you can persuade Uncle S to come and visit me BEFORE any weddings!!! 😉
