As promised, our lighter news this week is that Karen has passed the age of adolescence, and passed several other ages too. She took a well-deserved break from work to celebrate in style with her nearest and dearest. We think she looks absolutely fabulous and could easily pass for being at least 10 years younger -a combination of great genes and the advantages of having Mr Alvi nearby! Go girl!
