Just love Stevie Wonder.
About 30 years my friend, Nikki, and I were in a nightclub in London we were just about to leave, as it was full of Japanese tourists, when two black guys came in. One was really tall and one shorter with beads in his hair. As we walked up the stairs to the exit the tall black guy had followed us and asked us to have a drink with him. We said no thanks and that we were moving on. As we got outside he asked if his driver could drop us and before we knew it a Rolls Royce pulled up, before I could say no my friend got in the backseat, the tall black guy introduced himself and said the driver will drop you wherever you want to go and he left. Once in the car the driver asked if we were friends with Stevie and we said Stevie who? The driver then went on to tell us that the other guy with beads in his hair was Stevie Wonder and was staying at a hotel in Mayfair where he would play piano some nights for the hotel guests. Awesomeness. No, we didn't dash back to the nightclub but still a great memory.
Eddie and Pats are back. The teaser trailer for Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie has arrived. And it’s about bloody time because we were having withdrawals.
With more booze, more pills and more fashion, we can’t wait for the movie. All our favorite ladies will return, including Saffron and Bubble. They’ll also welcome cameos from Chris Colfer, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Rebel Wilson and numerous others.
The teaser finds Edina and Patsy living the high life on the French Riviera with some handsome boys in tow (literally). But no doubt, drunken antics will ensue.
Cameos include supermodel Kate Moss, but the cast also sees Julia Sawalha return as Saffy, Jane Horrocks as Bubble and June Whitfield as Mother.
Abbey Clancy, Barry Humphries aka Dame Edna Everage, Ella Eyre, Foxes, Graham Norton, Gwendoline Christie, Jeremy Paxman, Jerry Hall, Dame Joan Collins, Ozwald Boateng, Pam Hogg, Perez Hilton, Tinie Tempah and Wanda Ventham also have some screen time.
As well as starring in the film, Saunders wrote the script, which was directed by Mandie Fletcher, produced by Jon Plowman and Damian Jones.
The film hits cinemas in the UK on July 1, 2016 with US and Australia release dates of July 22 and August 11, respectively.

|Stunning location for a fairytale wedding. A wonderful happy day.|
A fairy tale wedding in Madrid at the Casino de Madrid, fabulous fun with friends at Platea, tickets for the Real Madrid vs Villa Real match and a tour of the stadium. Lots of very enjoyable strolls, lunches and evenings with friends.
Madrid is one of my favorite cities - no secret there [previous trip]. A few hiccups with hotel booking I had hoped we were staying in Vinnci's The Mint but fortunately I found out, just in time and by accident, that the hotel's double room doesn't allow an extra bed for my 12-year-old princess. Frantically had to last minute re-book, maybe it was just as well as communication with The Mint was fraught and almost impossible but managed to cancel before incurring a penalty. We did go to check out their rooftop bar whilst there which I had fallen in love with from the online photos - it was closed. Kismet.
I booked us 6 nights at the 4* Maria Elena Palace, Calle Aduana 19, it came to a very reasonable KD 209 (breakfast not included but there is a Starbucks at the end of the road). The Maria Elena is undergoing some refurbishment but didn't bother us, staff were magnificent, get a quiet inside room as some on the street are noisy at weekends a friend told us, room was nice, really comfy bed, housekeeping superb, great location walking distance to Sol (Mercado San Miguel, Primark on Gran Via, Retiro Park), free good wifi but would have liked more English TV channels only found CNN but we weren't there to watch TV.
Madrid is lively, artsy, vibrant, friendly and incredibly cool. The weather was a little rainy
in April but didn't stop us enjoying the sights, tastes and sounds of this gorgeous
Primark on Gran Via. A huge beautiful store spread over 4 floors with mobile phone recharge spots (take your recharge cable) you will need to recharge your phone as we were there for hours and lost each other a few times.
Madrid City Tour was a perfect thing to do on a rainy day just hop on and pay but make sure you can sit by the window as they do steam up and are better opened as long as rain is not coming in sideways. I could not manage to get my family into the Prado, Reina Sofia or the Thyssen museums but I had done them last trip and so was not forcing the issue.
Mercado San Miguel is a lovely place for a casual lunch or supper, Platea at Plaza Colon is not to be missed especially on a Saturday night when they had a free show, which was truly amazing.
Loads and loads of things to do in Madrid; fabulous museums, shopping, food, parks, a good walking city but there are bikes for rent too. We did miss out on BBike beer bar tandem cycle and although it's touted as the healthiest beer one has to wonder if it's not a traffic hazard. Toledo and Segovia are ancient beautiful cities and are only a short train ride from Madrid.
We love, love, love Madrid.

Dear Friends of Operation HOPE Kuwait,
Please forgive the long silence . . . but someone needs your help!
We received an appeal from Al Sidra to help get Crispen Rabiles home to the Philippines. He is 56 and a driver of a cement mixer truck at a construction company. He has been out of work for 2 years undergoing treatment for his colorectal cancer which has now spread to his liver. He is still independent but in tremendous pain and discomfort.
We purchased a ticket for Mr. Rabiles to return to the Philippines this Wednesday early morning on Cebu Airlines. Once he arrives in Manilla he will continue his journey homeward by boarding a bus and riding for another two hours.
This man has two children and a wife in the Philippines, and we are asking your support for his final days on this earth, and to help his family. Our goal is to raise KD 1,000 for this family, and we hope you and your friends will be led to contribute towards this appeal. All donations will be remitted to his family account on Saturday, April 30th, 2016. And all donors will be issued a receipt for your donation.
Kindly contact us on 9937-5613 should you wish for more information.
On behalf of the entire Operation HOPE Kuwait team, and the family of Crispen Rabiles, I thank you for your kind consideration.

"LEGAL CHARGES AGAINST #QATARAIRWAYS
We are stuck in Doha Airport hotel due to the incompetence of Qatar airways, before leaving Kuwait and while booking our flight we had a medical form filled out by the airline, and we supplied them with all the medical reports they needed, and we have a Dr flying with us as well.
The signed agreement was to supply both flights KWT/DOHA, DOHA/BERLIN with a medical Ventilator and oxygen, both on standby in case of any emergency regarding the baby.
While flying Doha, our Dr, TAREK AL AWAMRY, asked to see the ventilator so that he can operate it in case of an emergency happening, the crew told us they do not have it and they do not know what we are talking about, all they did supply us with was oxygen, no ventilator, we let that pass ,and then while boarding to Berlin, again, no medical machines on the flight, so of course we went off the plane not to put our baby in danger.
Now they cannot supply us with anything to go Berlin, they found a ventilator that can help us reach Berlin (where our baby has an appointment at Helios Klinik that took us quite an effort to arrange, and now we will simply miss it), "But its too expensive to use only once, you have to go back to kuwait", they want to terminate our medical trip due to their incompetence and refusal to buy a medical ventilator that saves our baby's life because its too expensive for Qatar airways.
The disaster is that our Dr have to leave us, he will return to kuwait today and we do not have anyone to accompany us to Berlin if they found the ventilator, Im a lawyer and we will file charges in Kuwait.
Now we want to save our baby she is jeopardized, she is supposed to have an OPERATION ASAP, we will not go back to kuwait, we are now staying at Doha's airport hotel.
We need a new pediatrician/neonatologist to accompany us to Berlin
We need help right this second
