A recommendation

It's late on a Friday. By all means, stay for a glass of wine after babysitting. If there are two of you and a gaggle of proper grown ups, so much the better.

Have a few drinks. Eat some pate. Dance if you feel like it. Chat to Bertie, the man, the legend. Tell people how cool their kids are. Eat the most melted Brie in the world. Locate the beer. Lie about where you got your skirt from. Enjoy all the songs that people put on for you and the awesome that is Siobhan "Because you're YOUNG!!!!!"

All of that is good. All of that is fine.

However, when you get in at half-past three Saturday morning, DO NOT call people.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Siobhan and I did a *little* tipsydialling yesterday morning. I haven't done that in ages. Somewhat crazily, we both also forgot that we had done the calling....until Tim texted us to see how we were and let us know he couldn't pick up the voicemail we'd left him.

Oh dear.

Boys, I'm sorry. Especially the boy who I called who had to get up at four. I am a bad Claire.

In other news, sometimes this blog just writes itself, I swear.



  1. I feel unloved; I only got a text =P

  2. Tipsydialling... what a lovely word!

  3. You are lovely and awesome and did this because I need it.

    And that makes you great.


  4. Glad to know there are others out there who have done that!!

  5. hahah..I have done this, along with drunk emailing/blogging at 3am. Not good. But at least you can delete comments/blog posts! lol

  6. Sometimes it's best just to leave the phone at home.


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.

If you'd like to work together, or if you'd just like to say hello, my email is:
