Always ask a busy Princess to do something and she gets it done. I should just rename myself Superwoman – I do like changing outfits and have always fancied wearing those cute hot pants but I think those days are far, far behind me.

Today I have been up early (before 9) and have been Princess Preparing a fabulous breakfast for my fellow committee members who are arriving at any minute. Catering for committee meetings has become quite competitive as (G-d forbid) there isn’t a choice of cakes, fruit, and the compulsory tasteless low-fat yogurt to make us all feel less guilty. I always add some honey nuts and seeds to the yogurt, yet all they seem to tuck into are the cakes.

So now my best English bone china is out-as my Grandmother used to say, "buy top quality and it will last a lifetime." Which is quite a shame really, as this set is positively antique, but in Princess Perfect condition, dating back from when I got married (as I said: positively antique) so I sadly have no excuse to buy a new set.

I would say to you that the coffee is perking, but in fact I have invested in a Nespresso. Just one note of caution if you buy the cheaper model (yes I did): you must remember to not leave it alone to do something else (the dangers of multitasking,) otherwise you will be express cleaning your espresso which will be all over your kitchen. Not everyone likes coffee (sad people, I am addicted but try and restrict myself to one cup a day,) and therefore I have to be Princess Prepared for all requirements. I have a Princess tea chest filled with calming, revitalising, boosting, detoxing, age defying leaves, some even from Fortnum and Mason but for these, FHB (family hold back) as they are JUST for the guests (it’s amazing how we all turn into our mothers) and I have even picked some fresh mint from the garden because there is always one-isn’t there?

Over the years I have always done charity work. My parents always taught me that giving is better than receiving, except when it comes to jewellery (well in my opinion). Growing up I have sung for old age pensioners (they paid to make me stop), taken part in sponsored walks (I chatted), in sponsored silences (I failed), and in sponsored swims (I drowned). Now I am Princess Proud to be a member of The Kiss for a Child committee, raising funds on behalf of World Jewish Relief for their children’s orphanages in Ukraine and the former Soviet Union. This committee started as a small group of Princesses and has ended up as a small group of Princesses. However this lot know how to get things done (well, they are Princesses). We have held ladies’ lunches, dinners and karaoke evenings, but landed on the Princess Perfect idea to raise money (over a million dollars over the years). So what is it? Well, I am sure like us, you are all hooked on Dancing with the Stars, in the UK we call it Strictly Come Dancing. So we came up with a brainwave of turning this into a charity event-sort of "Dancing with the Jews." This event has now become the talking point of the London charity scene, an evening filled with laughter, tears, drama, angst and amazing outfits. And that’s just the committee members.

So as you guys say, "Have a good day!" and remember to stay PPP Positive Productive and Princessslike in everything you do.
