Okay not quite the Stones in Exile but 2 days on the road felt like hard core stuff. I arrived in Sheffield and immediately started singing Heaven 17 and Human League songs and then remembered the Artic Monkeys too. When I walked into the hotel there sat in the reception was Leona Lewis. I stopped myself from intruding into her space and gushing. She is incredibly beautiful and seemingly down to earth. Of course people were entranced and approaching her but she was pleasant and gracious.
We met her dancers later at the end of our evening and they were male and fit. It all felt v.rock and roll.
The next day was Leeds. I had time to check out what the shops were like and the stock. They have lovely arcades in Leeds.
Later after pleasing the crowds with my fashion thoughts we all went out for drinks with Leeds people, as Jo Hemmings the Big Brother psychologist was with us and so our chaperone for the evening was Leeds resident Brazilian BB 2009 housemate Rodrigo. He was a real sweetie.
There were also nice barmen who made great martinis (this is purely for Wildernesschic).
I wore my trusty Topshop jumpsuit and was surprised that although Sheffield and Leeds are ready to embrace the maxi dress no one is sharing my jumpsuit love! Maybe Newcastle or Edinburgh will...
