I think it's known as a stay-cation! We didn't go away abroad; in fact we stayed home with a few days away here and there, as well as really appreciate our own surroundings.
I do believe we are thoroughly blessed, here in the UK, with the most wonderful places to visit and explore.
We spent some time on the coast and had a fabulous time. We took our two cairns with us too! Bramble posing beautifully for the camera and Misty taking ownership of the little fishing net while having a snooze. They had a wonderful time. They're affection for one another really shone as well. They're sisters and adore each other completely. This really showed when Bramble managed to climb on top of a small boulder by the sea. Misty wanted to be up there with her but was struggling to clamber on top as the seaweed made it a little slippy. Bramble promptly lent over and pulled Misty up by the scruff of the neck! Both tails wagging and simply adorable to witness – I wish the camera was running.
On one of our day trips I managed to snap this picture of a bird of prey. Any idea what species it is? I'm not sure but would love to know.
I came back to work to over 300 emails! Actually, I'm not that popular, only a few dozen applied to me.
I bought a Vitamix earlier this year when we had it as a TSV. It is, without question, one of the best if not the best purchase I have ever made at QVC.
It is, of course, a very considered purchase but worth every single penny. The power and performance is sensational not to mention the versatility. I took the plunge, budgeted and haven't regretted it for one moment.
We're offering a fantastic package. The machine will allow you to make ice cream in seconds with yoghurt and frozen fruit. You'll create the most amazing smoothies, dips, drinks, sauces and soups as well.
I'm thrilled to be part of the launch. I hope you can join me.
I'm also back Monday 1st September at midnight for the launch of Diamonique Day! The TSV is truly beautiful. The exquisite Diamonique mesh necklace is the star of the day. I then return later in the day for the grand finale with the one and only Alison Keenan. We'll be on our best behaviour… Honest
Thanks to all the new followers on Twitter. I'm @mecharliebrook. It's lots of fun!
I'll leave you with this week's guess the picture below!
