Beautiful, busy day in London

Another busy day in London. We launched Virgin Pure down by the Thames (and I had time to cut another tie off a journalist!)
Then enjoyed the sunshine over at the Roof Gardens, where we launched a beautiful revamped terrace, and met its newest animal, a fibreglass cow that sits on the Roof Gardens meadow on the roof!
I got the chance to meet our Virgin Trophy 2012 winner, the incredible Claire Lomas, who completed the London Marathon in a bionic suit and is a truly inspiring figure.
Also had a great chat with the Roof Gardens' longest-serving employee - the man who turned me down from entering the club because I was wearing jeans all those years ago (more on that soon!).
Then it was off to Twickenham on our new Roof Gardens and Necker Island-branded Limobikes for the fantastic Turf's Up event with Virgin Active, before rushing back to the airport.
I'm now in Madagascar for an exciting new adventure trying to help conserve the lemurs - will keep you posted!
