Posh talks popularity and playtime

Comment on this story
BECKHAMS lib AP The Beckham family arrive for Viva Forever! Press Night, a musical based on the songs of the Spice Girls, at the Piccadilly Theatre in central London.

London - Victoria Beckham loves arts and crafts sessions with her daughter.

The 37-year-old fashion designer recently moved back to London with husband David and their children, Brooklyn,13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, eight, and 19-month-old Harper, and during her time off she loves nothing more than buying new stationery and taking her youngest child to family private members' club Purple Dragon for some creative play.

Asked what her secret pleasures are in the city, she said: "Potato printing at the Purple Dragon with Harper and stocking up with stationery at Mount Street Stationers."

Victoria is enjoying living back in the UK for the first time since 2003 because it is so convenient - and also because her popularity has increased over the last decade.

She told the Daily Telegraph website: "I love being near my family and so close to the design studio. And there's always the opportunity to wear a fabulous coat.

"What's changed most? People like me now."

However, after years living in Spain and Los Angeles with her soccer star spouse - who recently signed a five-month contract with French side Paris Saint Germain - and their family, Victoria wishes the weather was better in London.

Asked what she would change about the city, she said: "The lack of sunlight." - Bang Showbiz
