Thirty years on

Asplendid office-warming party at Eva Jiricna's took place almost exactly 30 years since she arrived from Czechoslovakia to make a new life as an architect in the uk. Fellow emigre Jan Kaplicky arrived with Amanda Levete, bearing a copy of the Evening News from 1968 in which he and Eva advertised their application to become uk citizens - they are our gain. Other guests included Monica Pidgeon, Peter and Jane Murray, Richard and Lynne Bryant, Eric Sorenson, Cynthia Grant - plus Eva's delightful nieces. Practice evergreen Jon Tollitt was in mellow mood. As we quaffed champagne, he made do with a mug of tea.
