Thursday 20th December: After my last live job of the year in the afternoon, I met up with a few friends at The French House in Soho. This was a semi-official ‘End of term Party’. For me, anyway. Eager Beavers like Paul Baker were still working right up to Saturday 22nd and Guy Carter was actually working on Christmas Day!
That’s, from left to right: writer, film maker and demi-monde-ist Phil Munnoch, aka Captain Zip, caricaturist and ex-Matron (!) Helen Poynter, Dr Howard Cohen (who happens to be a big knob in the Jewish world of circumcision!), Myself, cartoonist and writer Guy Carter and journalist/corporate writer Julie Lefebve.
Julie and Phil are fellow members of networking group, Ecademy, where we strive to make ourselves known and boost our businesses with a limited amount of success. It’s a great place to make a diverse selection of friends though! Along with the occasional attendance of Guy, Julie and Phil are members of The London Writers’ Group which I also organise on a monthly basis. It has an out-of-date WordPress Blog here. (Memo to self: update it!)
I don’t remember much about it, but I think Emma Thompson made a brief appearance and then there was a ride on a rickshaw to Piccadilly Circus. There’s a separate funny story about Emma and me that I will relate at a later date. Watch this space!
As a result, this Christmas has been largely alcohol-free! And I won’t look at a Coke with any sense of desire in the future!
