All the Time in the World

It's been all about Dame Diana Rigg in this household since the sad news of her death on Thursday.

My flatmate is more of an Avengers fan than I am (and I am a pretty big Avengers fan), so she provided a curated experience of some of the best Mrs Peel episodes, including The House That Jack Built. We drank champagne (well, 'English sparkling wine').

Sarah received a fondue set for her birthday and had not yet christened it, so yesterday I had the genius idea of firing it up while we watched On Her Majesty's Secret Service, for a full Swiss experience.

We had a lot of fun setting up the stand, preparing dips and setting light to a mysterious container of blue gel. We watched the film - one of my top three Bonds always - in the company of Diana Rigg in art print form, George Lazenby in signed photo form, and a small St Bernard I acquired on the Great St Bernard Pass some years ago.

First Honor Blackman and now Diana Rigg. What a rotten year.
