In love again but conscious of the description of second marriages as ‘The triumph of hope over experience’. Will I regret my impulsiveness?
My long weekend with William and Eleanor. At 15 they have taken on the normal sleep patterns of teenagers and I won’t see them for hours. My girlfriend Amanda decamped to Portugal on Wednesday with 3 close friends to celebrate her birthday. The lead story in the FT yesterday was that Portugal had left the Eurozone bail out mechanism, having raised money in the international bond markets for the first time since the financial crash. I do not think the two are unrelated. The presence of Amanda and her pals will give the Portuguese economy a significant boost, particularly the wine industry in the Algarve.
