Last week was such fun!! At the risk of boring you with more stories of my social media networking adventures, my night spent with multi-millionnaire businessman David Gold simply has to be worth a mention, don’t you think? It was my first visit to a football ground, and how lovely that it was Deedub’s team – when we had our photos taken last week by the sea he was actually wearing a West Ham jacket. I’m not sure what I expected from an east London premiere league soccer club, but I was blown away by the sumptuousness of the surroundings, it was more like a hotel than I’d imagined, although I didn’t actually see the pitch, so maybe that’s where the hooliganism stays. David was charming and entertaining and didn’t mention his £360M fortune even once! (I wonder how many of you are planning to Google him when you get to the end of this blog? My world-wide followers might be a bit shocked…) My photo with him on Facebook attracted a load of comments and I have been asked what I said that made him cuddle me. Not sure it’s appropriate to repeat on this ever-so-businessy blog, so let’s just say I redeemed myself for admitting I’m not a West Ham fan, by confirming in very plain English that I do contribute happily to his retail income. MK says I should forget networking/notworking as what I do is clearly nutworking!! It was a fantastic evening, and I even picked up a couple of new clients for SEO content-writing. Also nearly picked up a waiter – he was giggling at how greedy I was with the hot canapés (why take one when you can take four??) and he invited me to follow him back to the kitchen. It made the mayor laugh.
West Ham followed a night at Earls Court where I attended the glittering, glorious Graduate Fashion Week gala. (Wow… alliteration!) Congratulations to the mega-talented winners and finalists, drawn from over 1000 BA fashion design students across the UK. Some amazing ranges are set to hit the stores once these people begin their careers. It was fun, I was given a goodie bag with lovely make up and stuff, and I ate more canapés – nothing shabby about that. Gill will be very surprised to hear I ate a walnut! It was cemented to the brie with honey, and was really quite delicious. Being in the VIP suite, wherever I turned was another person offering me a tray of delicious looking tasty things – or champagne!! It was all a bit Bowie: “Turn to the left, turn to the right, FASHION!”
“There’s a brand new talk, but it’s not very clear; that people from good homes are talking this year. It’s loud and tasteless and I’ve heard it before; you shout it while you’re dancing on the whole dance floor.” Actually, if people are not very clear, they should come on my plain English training, right?
