Then I went off to do some work, having brought my laptop with me. Like many another Londoner, I sit in coffee-shops and work…

In the afternoon I returned to the church briefly, as there was a wedding – at which, for the first time, an embroidered kneeler made by Auntie, was to be used.

In the evening, NIGHTFEVER at St Patrick’s, Soho. To get a sense of what it’s like, you could read the latest issue of OREMUS magazine, in which I have written a description of it all…
