Yeah, Jon -well, he hates me buying jewellery, watches, etc, he just saves and saves and saves until there is some sort of an opportunity. And then he buys.

The truth is — we are not going to enjoy them properties, Jon is flying out to Madeira tomorrow to sign a contract with their Estate Agent and he will rent it out. We both know how this works, both me and Jon were property brokers, mortgage brokers at one point- you name it. When all the people — Spanish people — with their broken English attack him — he says «don't teach your grandmother to ##### eggs» — it is very difficult to explain the meaning of this.

However, it is under two months for our big family holiday in Spain — Costa D'Almeria.

I know all these sayings are crass, but they make me laugh, can I laugh or what? As regards Jonathan Harvey (I can't name the last name — our surname), but — he has always been stingy and saving. He hates for the money to be spent on jewellery, etc. I asked him for a Cartier Panthere Gold watch for the mother's day, he said «No»,
I was thinking you know — what the #####, where does his money go, he earns tons of money, well he pays the school fees of course and that, but still — and now it is clear -he is obsessed with buying properties. Well.

You can say that keeping jewellery is much easier than keeping properties)

You need to do a lot of things to keep properties in order or hire people for that. I bet keeping jewellery in safety box is much cheaper/easier.

But I get your point. It's better not to rise bad memories.

The safety deposit box is £560 a month, peanuts -for your piece of mind. Jon's Mom has tons, and I mean TONS of jewellery, nothing much to do with his Dad — he was a commoner and not a gent, not a particularly good man (you know what I mean), Josie gave me all the jewellery, but I only wear my engagement ring which is a huge (nearly 3 Carat diamond), that's it, the rest is in the safety deposit box in the bank, I don't even see it.

I meant to say per year, not per month — as far as I know that is how much she pays, she has a few of them. The prices are similar.

P. S. I deleted some personal info — don't want it to hang around here. As regards property, originally the plan was to buy another property to rent out in London, but when Jon was ready — Brexit started and the prices have stalled, the property market is falling and you don't want to be buying in the falling market. You wanna wait until it falls more or stabilizes.

Trump is here on a State visit with his gorgeous wife. They are analysing what she has been wearing and she has been wearing Burberry (London fashion house) blouses with the pictures of London landmarks on them. They are saying that Trump 's behaviour and body language has changed for the better and the most dignified it has ever been — being in the company of the Royals is good for Trump.





Trump is calling the UK's EU membership — «shackles»

Donald Trump praises 'remarkable' Queen in state banquet speech
US President says 'big Trade Deal is possible once U.K. gets rid of the shackles'
May-Trump private meeting called off
Labour facing hypocrisy claims as MPs lead protest
Tories hint at Huawei climbdown ahead of Trump visit

P. S. Our childish lefties — Corbyn (Labour) and Vince Cable (Lib Dem) refused to turn up for the dinner with Trump, but they were invited by the Queen and it was their duty as Leaders of the Opposition parties to turn up.

I missed this post of yours earlier, just looked at the article — such teaching methods as they practice in Russian ballet schools here would be considered child abuse and those teachers would be struck off. Period. We have famous Russian ballerinas teaching here at the Royal ballet school and they don't grab students here by the shoulders calling them «fat cows», «pigs», etc. It is out of the question. To be honest — I would much rather put up with the fact that our ballet is not as good as the Russian one — than things like this happening.

Of course not. We should watch and love ballet, music, figure skating. Don't take no notice of me, I am a parent and a little bit pushy myself — so I have a totally different view on this. Being aware of the other side of this is good for me personally. And at the moment I feel very guilty over Vicky's foot injury — it happened straight after that ballet competition — prior to that she trained very heavily every day and I encouraged it, so I feel guilty, I can't help it.

Got to go to work now, have a nice day.)
