Arrived at my friend Jane's flat, and we immediately had our trademark Barb-arrival supper, Sushi from the Send Out people. I want the send out people in Pimlico. Why can't they be in Pimlico? I also love the corner store here which is dangerously close and has all the Ben and Jerry diet busting flavours, so I can't go in that store, obviously, except at my peril. I also cannot go in Whole Foods. What is it about Whole Foods? You go in for one tiny thing and end up buying candles made of soya and smelling of French fields and cakes made from old wool that are sugar free but certainly not free from anything else. And you get the bill and have to be stretchered back, from the shock.
Had my first rehearsal with the fabulous Tracy Stark. We open here on tuesday -
and there was a wonderful piece by Adam Feldman in Time Out New York, for which, thank you Adam. He had skyped me when I was at my mum's recently and I'd been watching TV and drinking red wine, and we had such a fine chat. You can read it if you've got magnifying eyes, here…..

So this morning I had brunch at the Polish restaurant in the East Village with Robert and Jorge, which was delicious and friendly and tasty, and its windy and a bit chillier, and in a minute I'm off to another rehearsal.
On the radio right now Frank is singing "Come Rain or Come Shine".
And tonight I am going to join the fabulous David Kenney for his radio show where I'll be interviewed and also be a guest DJ.
Check that out, its a great great show. We should have that kind of show on the BBC, I could present it. There we are, another thing sorted. Thats my pension in place.
More after we open on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, post the eclipse - with all the astrological news via the great Tom Lescher - if you haven't found him yes, he's here -
And connect with all of this and more on the FB pages
Namaste, peace, one world one love and joy to all,
