It has been such a hectic time of late so apologise for lack of posts. Update from just over a week ago, when I spent 48 (fabulous and like the good old days) hours in the company of best friend Olivia Newton John in London.
Here to promote her new album LIV ON along with Amy Sky and Beth Nielson Chapman.They performed at the Union Chapel in Islington and it was such a joyful experience to see three amazing talents in harmony and collaboration.

AS SHE EMBRACES A BRIGHT NEW FUTURE
OPENS HER HEART ABOUT MOVING ON AND THE EXCITING CHANGES IN HER LIFE
Looking every inch the lady of the manor as she poses against the historic backdrop of Maunsel House, a stunning medieval mansion in Somerset, time seems to have stood still for the ever youthful Susan George.
Yet the actress is experiencing monumental changes in her personal and professional life right now -changes she talks about for the first time in this exclusive interview with HELLO!.
“I’ve turned a massive corner,” she says. “I feel incredibly excited, which I never thought I’d feel again. There’s so much more to do in my lifetime and still so much to fulfil.”
HOME SWEET HOME
Not only is Susan embracing a renaissance in her film and TV career, preparing for a one-woman stage show and completing her candid autobiography, but she is also considering a move from the wilds of Exmoor and parting with many of her Georgian Arabian horses, part of the equestrian breeding enterprise she has devoted more than two decades to.
It is all, she says, exactly what her husband, actor Simon MacCorkindale, who died of cancer at 58 in 2010, would have wanted.
Richard Fleeshman, Jack Edwards, Maxwell Caulfield
At the invitation of dear friend Max Caulfield went to see Guys and Dolls at the Bristol Hippodrome. Show was fabulous and I felt we’d been treated to West End magic here in the South West of England. After an exciting curtain call with the audience all on their feet, Maxwell introduced me to the audience and delivered an emotional speech about Simon and our friendship throughout the years. Huge thank you to the cast and theatre staff for the warm welcome and support for www.lastinglife.org.uk
Last evening I was at an amazing celebration for 250 year Anniversary of the Bristol Old Vic and met up with some very special friends, who I hadn’t seen in awhile.
Performance was stunning and in particular dear friend and superb actress Sian Philips re-visited a role she played as an ingenue, in a scene from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. A night to remember.
Saturday night, the official launch party of Lasting Life. Sir Benjamin Slade was our host and the dinner held at his magnificent home Maunsel House in Somerset.
It was, for me, the most magical evening shared with many longtime friends and one I will long remember.❤
Friends of Lasting Life The Simon MacCorkindale Legacy, at the launch party sharing an evening of love and light in the memory of one very special man and in his name, the beginning of a powerful project journey that’s only just begun. Thanks to all for the tangible magic in the room.

Came home from the hustle and bustle of town the other day to the peace and tranquility of our Georgian Arabians stud farm. Took this picture without realising, there was a “cloud horse” in the sky.
Had to be an Arabian.
Happy Easter everyone, hope you are sharing it with someone special.
I was in London yesterday for Voice Over work and lovely girlfriend Nikki with me. Took her to Fortnum and Masons for afternoon tea.
The store and tea shop especially has a wonderful traditional feel, as if stepping back in time. Couldn’t help laughing when I looked at photos this morning and saw waiter in background scene stealing our photographic moment. Fabulous !!!
In London this week for fashion show at the Cafe Royal for Fifty Plus London Fashion Week. Great show put on by JD Williams fashion and great afternoon spent catching up with Jo Wood, Lizzie Cundy and Anthea Turner. Love Light and Laughter in the room, just what friends are for
