Well the first arrival was at 11.00 today and she arrived 40 minutes early, I hope that is a good sign for Sunday. She arrived from Montreal. Having taken her into the hotel I met up with my daughter at the studios and we then headed back to the airport to meet her boyfriend and seven from Australia. Three had been before so they recognised me straight away, which is lucky as I had forgotten my Masterclass sign. Put them in a mini-bus to the hotel and met them there to make sure they got in ok. The reception people at the hotel are very good and all multi-lingual which makes things much smoother. 

I then headed back to the studios to collect Daria and then we went home before going to Grandma’s for some dinner (Duck or Bolognaise). Tomorrow only one arrives from the States plus Jonathan Still our irreplaceable pianist and friend.
