I hadn't been well beforehand and wondered whether I would have the energy for the evening, but after spending the morning in bed, I managed to stay awake. Several cancellations due to flu and didn't know whether my agent, Isobel, would be able to come until the last moment.

The music was great - beautiful modern jazz played by John Horler (piano) and Art Themen (sax).
Best-selling author Jacqueline Wilson came and was mobbed by fans.
Relatives of the cast of characters in the biography also came - nephews, neices and grandchildren.

We had a creche in the corner and afterwards the babies went to sleep in the coat cupboard!
Later, exhausted and hungry, a few of us went out for a pizza.
Many, many thanks to everyone who came and made the evening special!
