John and I were discussing this last night - who would comprise your perfect dinner party?
I would have:
Desmond Tutu (for his wonderful smile, and the fact that he summed up his life thus: "I have laughed and I have loved". Perfect.)
Dame Edna Everidge (because I think he/she is one of the funniest people on this planet).
Judi Dench (just because she is wonderful).
David Nott (an amazing doctor who has spent much of his time working without pay in some of the worse war zones. That man is a saint).
Who would you have? Still living, if possible, and preferably people you haven't met.(Yes, I should be working, but I'm having a break.)
