Must Watch Friday: Julie and Julia

Just popping in to say I've got a blog up today on The Pink Heart Society for Julie and Julia, Nora Ephron's foodie feast starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams.

Definitely worth dropping by and adding your views on beouf bourginon or indomitable, unconventional women or how Meryl can still look fabulous when she's pushing 60. I want that woman's bone structure. Now....

In other news I trudged over to Hammersmith in West London, in the pouring rain on Wednesday night, to meet the 'ravishing and talented' Leonardo, a dreamy architect who works for The Richard Rogers Partnership (think the Millenium Dome and the Pompidou Centre in Paris.. Rogers is a big deal and builds great buildings, whatever Prince Charles might say!!).

Leonardo was lovely, not only giving me the low-down on what architects actually do (so my hero will hopefully sound like he knows what the heck he's talking about) but also letting me borrow his Christian name! I skipped back from Hammersmith feeling like Gene Kelly in Singin' in the Rain. Hmmm, it's times like this that being a romance writer is so worth the effort. In fact, I think all my heroes may be architects from now on!

Leonardo - if you happen to be looking at this (and why wouldn't you?!), I am always looking to meet interesting men (for research purposes of course), with a view to perhaps a long - term relationship.
If you are interested contact Heidi and she can give you all the (my) details...!
yours...living in hope, Abby Green

Ok - so this is totally unrelated to the above post, but Public Affair, Secretly Expecting hit my doorstep this morning - but I'm not going to read it. Yet. I'm throwing it in my suitcase and its heading OS with me - need a good read on the plane...
