Homeland, Home & Away, The Good Wife, Ray Donovan, Love/Hate & Blue Bloods feed my weekly TV drama habit; I'll watch golf, tennis, soccer, rugby anytime. Admire the talents of Messi, Wayne Rooney, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Ronan O'Gara, Johnny Wilkenson, Rafael Nadal, Williams sisters, Michael Flatley, Jason Brown & loads more...
Heading to see the Butler this week; love the cinema. Ridley Scott fan....Late convert to Baz Luhrmann's style - raved about Gatsby & Australia, but could not get into Moulin Rouge. Comedy is a daily necessity - can anything beat Michael Crawford as Frank Spencer in "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em"? Class. Hysterical! Two & a Half Men is a nightly must see.
Catholic tastes in music - anything from Tina Turner, Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Johnny Logan, Madonna, Susan Boyle, Tony Bennett, Beyoncé, Rolling Stones, Queen, Amy Winehouse, Elton John, Adele, Kylie, Barbra Streisand...
Fave piece - l'Apres Midi d'Une Faune;
Fave song :" Simply the Best"
Food - I'm into cooking. Did Ballymaloe course in mid 70's and never looked (website hidden) for big family kept me on my toes.
Fashion - John Rocha floats my boat; gotta hand it to Mrs Beckham... lovely stuff; Ralph Lauren's a favourite & I love hunting for bargains in charity shops with my girl pal. We're experts at this stage....
Life motto from my mother (via the Jesuits) "Laborare est orare" - to work is to pray.
Almost forgot to say I'm an artist....painting's my thing.......we (Bill, my husband) happily wander around galleries every where we go. Love it!
Every guest goes home with a free set of 4 limited edition art prints. Images are from the house collection and are valued by form gallery at 140 euros each.
