Answers on a postcard…


Which film?  Well I can't send you all a postcard individually so I thought I would send you a couple of photos I took. The sun was behind me when I took the reflection of myself in the pool… my legs have never looked so long but that is compensated by the 'pin' head!!!

The other picture reminds me of one of my favourite films… any idea which one? – answers on a postcard please LOL!

Hope you all enjoyed the beauty weekend – I joined in with Saturday's TSV by putting an Ojon treatment on my hair. 

Reflection in the pool See you soon,

    could it possibly be “Dead Calm”?

    Hi Julia
    Not sure about the first photo but the one of your silhouette reminds me of one of the Bond movie theme tunes! Hope you’re having a lovely time. Beauty weekend was great but would have been better with some Elemis. (Of course, I would say that!) Really excited about my live TV debut on Monday night! xxx

    Hi Julia – i hope this comment finds you wellx Re the film title all i can think of is Titanic!! i know rubbish – i dont see an iceberg in your photograph either – i’m no good at guessing these type of thingsx It looks as if your holiday – albeit it working – is very sunny,such a differnce to Scotland today – rain and gale force winds!! I hope your getting some “me” time,to enjoy the sun, inbetween all the work.Re your “secret” i have just realised that it will be QVCUK’s birthday in October and i hope your not thinking of departing our screens for some other ventures? I for one would really miss you and particulary your honesty-i know when you say an item is good that you have tried it/use it and you are getting results from it – when you dont say anything i know that the item may be good but you personally have not tried/use it yet. I’ve thanked you before for that and do so againx My moneys on the book though – we’ll see when you reveal allx Funnily, i’m typing this comment with an Ojon treatment on my hair and Decleor mask on my face – love Ojon but also love Philip Kingsley Elasticiser(if i’m right i think you do too?). I’m a real nails gal and am looking forward to the Leighton Denny TSV on 1 Oct and the Nails inc TSV on the 14 Oct – will you be launching them at midnight or maybe one of the hours during the early evening/night? Keep enjoying the sun Julia. See you soon on QVC. Look after yourselfx Love Linda,Glasgowx

    Hi Julia
    I think your film is Shirley Valentine — in particular when Pauline Collins and Tom Conte spend the day on the boat of course — don`t say you`ve been diving in wearing your birthday suit !!
    Enjoy the sunsets

    Hi Tracy
    I have never seen ‘Dead Calm’ – is it scary? I’m a bit of a wooz when it comes to scary films. So no it’s not ‘Dead Calm’
    Thanks for guessing

    Hi Marian
    Are you comparing me to a Bond Girl??? I’d love to be in a Bond Movie ( not in a bikini at my age obviously!!!! ) particularly if it was starring the gorgeous Daniel Craig! Casino Royale is one of my favourite movies …….. must have seen it a dozen times!
    No Elemis on Beauty Weekend but a whole week of it next week. I am doing the Thursday night show with Keeley and REALLY looking forward to seeing her. So sorry I won’t be there for your QVC debut on Monday. Good luck and enjoy it

    Hi Linda
    Titanic ?!?!?!?!?!?! I love your sense of humour. Still working hard but am making sure I take a couple of hours off to sit in the sun and have my daily 100 lengths of the pool.
    Chris was due to fly back out today but we had a bit of a drama at home so he may come back tomorrow or not at all. I’m a bit of a ‘billy no mates’ here on my own!
    No I’m not planning on leaving QVC anytime soon ( not that I know of anyway ) and thanks for all the lovely things you said. I have always firmly believed that honesty is the best policy – I will never tell you I have something or have used something if I haven’t – what’s the point, I want you to trust me. Yes you are right about the elasticiser I do like it but in the interest of not having excess baggage ( I have the litre size ) I brought my Ojon instead – love the smell!!
    Ali Young is launching the TSV with Leighton and I haven’t seen a schedule for the 14th yet – I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

    Hi Julia,
    Sorry to hear you had a bit of a drama at home…I hope it’s sort of sorted? My Mum had scare while on holiday there too. Horrible. I’m glad to have them home. As you said to Annette in your last blog though – a change is meant to be as good as a rest – I said that to you recently too! It’s taken a while to get over it though for her. Hope you enjoy your last few days of heat and sun. I’m dreaming of next ‘summer’ already.

    Hi Julia
    Just got back from Wales, catching up with all the emails etc.
    Hope your drama at home has been sorted and Chris has managed to get back out there. I’ve had a spider scare again today…opened the door into the dining room and a huge spider dropped onto my hand, I let out the loudest scream ever and poor Chris came running in to see what was up and had to remove him before I could go any further!
    It was lovely to get away from the house after sooo long, although the weather wasn’t too brilliant, lots of showers…sunshine now we’re back, typical!! Had a few trips out, but having been in the car for so long the ankle swells up, so short walks, then I have a coffee whilst Chris takes Bobby for a longer walk.
    We’ve taken some great photos with the Fuji camera bought recently from QVC, the panoramic feature is fantastic, especially around the Welsh hills and lakes and we’ve just taken some at home with the tripod and timer…that was hysterical, watching Chris running over, trying to pick Bobby up and pose at the same time!
    Your photo reminds me of one of my favourite films ‘High Society’ and the lovely Grace Kelly…now there’s class! The other one…definitely a ‘Bond’ girl pose!
    Now I’ve caught up, I’m off to do my pilates like a good girl!

    Hi Julia
    Lucky you with blue skies,sea,sand and possibly sangria?I think the film must be “Shirley Valentine”?
    I am looking forward to the Elemis shows coming up soon,need to stock up on my Pro-collagen night cream!Then I am off to sunny Cyprus for a month!!Can’t wait.
    I know you and I have something in common in that we both went to Jesse Gray School in West Bridgford,Notts.A long time ago ….. but my sister and I often talk about Jo Pegg,headmaster (not sure spelling is right)?I used to live on Loughborough Road,Wilford Hill,am sure you must know it?My piano teacher used to live on Musters Road,near the Methodist Church,her name was Miss Brodhurst and she was a typical “Miss”,if you know what I mean??Hey ho,happy days!
    Enjoy your holiday,look forward to seeing you back on air.

    Hi Kathy
    Have you been on the sangria? Lol. There is no page 3 of replies on this post! We had a bit of rain overnight but it had cleared by midday. I saw on the weather forecast that they are expecting temperatures in the 80’s next week in the UK so maybe we won’t need the heating on after all.

    As I just said to Beryl it’s not High Society. OK here’s a clue, the movie was about a TV show. Have another guess and I’ll keep the blogs coming

    Hi Julia
    Could it be Mama Mia? Although not Greece (which I love) the blue sea is just fabulous.
    Seems I am now going to be one of your regular blogettes, shame about Palace still early days yet, and Torres has managed to score another goal, not sure why Chelsea bought him.
    Looking forward to Leighton and Honora this weekend, you seem to have been away for ages……………!!
    Enjoy the last few days with Chris.

    My guess is The Truman Show. One of my favourite films. This reminds me of Truman’s brave escape at the end.

    Hello Joy
    No it’s not Mamma Mia. I’ve only been to Greece once, to Skiathos, but as you say it is beautiful!
    Palace won in the cup the other night. We have Southampton at home next round so we may progress to the last eight – that would be nice.
    Torres – great player, but I agree I’m not sure Chelsea is the right club for him.
    My last day here – back to ‘Blighty’ tonight.
    Thanks for being a ‘blogette’ ……… I like that term!

    Gold star to you. I am not a huge Jim Carey fan but I loved him in this film. There is a bit that breaks my heart every time I see it. Truman and his ‘best friend’ Marlon are sat on the bridge drinking beer and Marlon says ” And the last thing I would ever do is lie to you”, which he is being fed via earpiece from the Truman Show producer. Reduces me to tears every time!
    On a lighter note ………….. love it when they say every morning ” Cue the sun” – wouldn’t it be good if we could!

    Hi Julia,
    Yes i think i did have to much “vino” re blog. Sorry about that. I’m on my way home tomorow night. Ive just googled the weather to see what i’m going to miss here, and it said it was cloudy in “Mijas Costa” ( which is where i am),But the sky is as blue as my bikini Looking good at home for the next few days too.(No i don’t use factor 30, the highest i use is 20 on face and neck area.)Don’t tell Alison!!! Ive used so much body moisturiser this last few months i need to get some more for our Egypt trip in a couple of weeks time, temperture is in the high 30’s.Enjoy your last hours in the sun. Bye for now.

    I trust you got home safely, as did we. What a bonus to come back to these amazing temperatures – the only things missing are the pool and the view!!
    Hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy a bit of QVC and our Birthday Weekend before you head off to Egypt. Stock up on the factor 30 for Egypt as it’s hotter than Spain!! ( as was England today )
