It has as usual crept up on me at a rate faster than a blink of an eye and so as is normal in my life, I have a million things to get through before I leave this evening, I just thought that I'd let you all know what my plans are.
I'm flying out later this evening to Miami via American Airlines.
Because I need to be on top form for tomorrow, John
will be waiting for me on the tarmac with his jet (and a glass of ice cold champagne) so that we can fly straight to Dublin, Ohio and then after dinner and a good night's sleep, relax before the big night. I invited John because I'm tired of men who insist on stamping on my toes whilst dancing and then leaving an imprint of their hand on my back. To say nothing of my butt especially if I decide to wear white!
Will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn which I hope will be acceptable. Everywhere else was booked even with the name dropping!
It has a spa so that's fine!
So off to throw as few things in my open suitcase - which dress? Which dress? Lord above - decisions, decisions! Will keep you posted as to progress. But it's all hush, hush at this end because as always, I really am sneaking away!!
Can't wait to see everyone!

We have arrived after a fabulous flight and have laid out some of my wardrobe. Have decided on Chanel this year but cannot decide on the classic or the modern although am not keen on bare arms! Still pondering. John says either looks good - just like a man.
Very different I know!
Problem with shoes too although either will go with both. Both are Jimmy Shoo - I think - I just threw the in.
Think I'll call it a night and decide on jewels tomorrow.
It's fabulous to be here and John and I are having a wonderful time. (I am so glad I invited him and yes anyone who likes can dance with him except of course for the last dance), I'm avoiding Alan Rickman after last year's fiasco!
As you can see I did choose the white number which Karl said was far more elegant for such an event even though he had designed them both. The red was too 'red carpet if you know what I mean and yes at my age, arms unless you exercise like mad, are better covered! I knew that really but you know me, I always throw in something different 'just in case'. And yes, the second pair of shoes are better with the dress not to mention, more comfortable for this long night.
Thought you might just like to see the perfume just in case you get a whiff of it and wonder what it is.
You see I'm a Chanel girl at heart and that's never going to change! And I decided to go with diamonds and rubies.
I slipped out onto the terrace with the most delicious roulade and glass of champagne. Have to keep the energy levels up.
Going to circulate now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it's so nice to see everyone having such a wonderful time. Willow really does put on a spectacular event, doesn't she and doesn't she look stunning?
PS anyone notice Nigella leaving the room.........................????? Just asking!.
