Mixing with the rich and titled at the House of Lords

On Tuesday we went to a reception at the House of Lords which was organised by Wells for India – the charity I do all the Christmas cards for.  (or should I say, ‘for whom I do all the Christmas cards’ – standards!) It was the usual thing, presentations and canapes; but a good turn out and hopefully they will pick up some new sponsors.  It was great being on the inside of the House of Lords, looking out, as opposed to the other way round and it is, as you would expect, pretty swanky inside with gracious proportioned rooms, high ceilings and oak panelling.  I am guessing the novelty would wear off quite quickly if I had to do too much of it, but it was great fun as a one-off!
