The second 40th Birthday of the night was our great friend actor Stuart Laing's party at the Music Palace in Crouch End. It was lovely to catch up with so many of our fantastic friends and spend time with the wonderful Stu and Ali. We intended to leave when the party finished but were having such a good time we ended up going to an after party hosted by Dave Holland which was lots of fun. We got a cab back in the pouring rain this morning and went straight to bed. Popped out for a roast and now all we're good for is lying in front of the television watching Come Dine with Me, I'm a Celebrity (love George Hamilton, what a legend!) and The Queen on Channel 4.
