‘Episode 3 of Life and Style weekend brings together a bunch of brilliant people and it was an afternoon of laughter and fun which is how life should ideally be.  Nevertheless it not always is but Saturday was certainly a special day for me as I ended in Pippa’s house eating her fabulous baked macaroni, followed by home made lemon ice cream and mqaret.  It cannot get much better than that.  Thank you Pippa and John 💛💛’
