Having had a busy weekend cleaning up at the Q with the Dyson V8, I am now luxuriating in a 37 degrees breeze courtesy of my Dyson fan! Our sunny summer family holiday in St. Osyth last August seems like a lifetime away, and I’ll freely admit I’m missing the sunshine.
Mind you, reading through all your lovely comments has cheered me no end, and thank you for your kindness regarding my health. I’ve actually had my appointment put back a month so that we can get blood results and a clearer picture of where we’re at, so I’ll update you once I know.
Talking of a clearer picture, irrespective of the grey day, I can see through my window. I am sitting bathed in brightness thanks to a special light pod that my sister Jenny kindly bought for me for Christmas. You plug it in and it produces a light similar to bright daylight, which helps quite noticeably to lift my mood, and also makes it easier for me to see my computer keyboard!
Nothing could have dulled my spirits last Friday though when I set off with Lucy and Honey to head into London by train. We were meeting up with Jack and then spending the day at the Natural History Museum.
It was Honey’s first time on a train, and she loved it! She was as good as gold too, but I was mightily relieved to have not only the pushchair to keep her safe in, but also a pair of reins that kept her close at all times. We met Jack at a Spanish tapas restaurant and had lunch.
Honey, like Lucy and I, loves olives and has a rather original way of eating them!
As Jack works most weekends, he hasn’t been able to spend much time with Honey, but they were inseparable that day, and whether she was looking at the dinosaurs with him, or feeling a little scared of the giant scorpion, he wasn’t ever very far from her side.
The last time I’d been to this museum with Jack, Sam and Lucy had been when Jack was about seven years old. I find it almost impossible to believe that we will be celebrating his 24th birthday this Thursday, but then life is moving so much faster these days… I thought you might like to see this photo of him when he was just five years old at nursery school… same smile as Honey I think.
Also, although we’ve not been able to see little Calla for a while, her mummy Rae has sent me these lovely photos so I can keep you up to date with her progress.
Did you miss my show last night? I am delighted to have had these beautiful pair of hoop earrings as my pick – item number 309342 – with 30 brilliant cut stones and there’s free P&P too! If you bought the bee pendant I had a few weeks back, I hope you’ll like the bee earrings just as much (307621) and we also had a traditional tennis bracelet in the hour too. It’s at a clearance price and has 4 EZ pays, so if you’re buying early for Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, here’s the number – 664333!
Having mentioned Valentine’s Day, I’d delighted to tell you that the 14th February at 8pm will be the first of my regular Diamonique shows and the exciting news is, if you don’t manage to catch these, they will be repeated every Tuesday night at 10pm on the QVC Extra channel. In recognition and celebration of this I thought I’d set a competition! If you’d like to win this lovely Diamonique 1.5ct tw Mother of Pearl Pave Dial Watch, worth approx. £80, then all you have to do is answer this question correctly:
Which Rodgers and Hart musical featured the song “My Funny Valentine” ?
- Love Me Tonight
- Babes in Arms
- Higher and Higher
Just post your answer in the comments below and make sure to leave an email address (don’t worry, this won’t be made public). I will draw a winner at random from all the correct answers LIVE on air on February 14th during the 8pm show. Full terms and conditions can be found here. Good luck!
I’m looking forward to my Beauty Night in on Friday when we’ll be featuring the TSV – a four piece Niod Skin Heroes collection – find out more on our website @qcuk.com item no 230215. The following week Elemis have their Pro-Definition Contouring collection which Keeley Aydin will be presenting to you and which I’m reliably informed is very much a spring treat!
Well, I must fly as I’ve got to get my nails manicured for tonight’s show, and get a few surprises for Jack’s special day. I promise to get back to you more speedily this time if you write on the blog. Technical issues with my home PC made it difficult last week, but all fixed now. Stay warm and well, and I look forward as always to hearing from you.
With my love,
