A mixed week plus an amazing Amanda Wakeley competition!

Bouncing, creaking, working, resting… that would be the answer if the question had been “Use four words to describe your week”! It’s been a right old mix, and I will explain, but before I do, I wanted you to know that I’ve really enjoyed catching up with you here on the blog, and I must thank you for all the suggestions as to the kind of car I should choose when I sell mine – if I ever get around to it! Something I won’t be selling, merely giving to you as a gift, is possibly one of THE biggest prizes I’ve ever had here on the blog, so bear with me and I’ll let you know what it is towards the bottom of the page.TrampoliningLast week I went to stay with Lucy and Honey, and as Friday is Lucy’s day off, she’d booked us into Toddler Bounce. I thought we’d just pop along and watch Honey bouncing around, but no, it was for adults too! I’ll admit to a mild sense of panic when told that I needed to purchase special socks to take part – not because I’m ashamed of my feet you understand – just because I don’t feel all that supple at the moment! I needn’t have worried because the purpose-built bouncing area was full of trampolines rather than the hard floors I’d been imagining, and very well set out.Trampolining funHoney loved it!  She went haring off and it was all I could do to keep up with her! I spent a fair amount of time just sitting with her while she bounced, but then I just love being with her : ) Honey is so chatty and such a great companion, and reminds me very much of Lucy at the same age. Mentally, it takes years off me being with them, but physically on that day, I think I was possibly one of the more reserved bouncers, as along with my dodgy back and creaking knees I now have an ‘impinged shoulder’!TrampoliningSome of you had picked up on Twitter that I’d recently been for a nuclear bone scan, which I’m happy to tell you came back with no spread of cancer to my bones. The reason I’d been referred was because of pain in my right arm and shoulder, and so having seen a specialist and had an X-ray it transpires that I have major calcification of the bones there that has caused the tendons to adhere to them and twist. Very uncomfortable, and because I stupidly left it for several months before seeing my oncologist (fear that the cancer had come back…) it now requires surgery rather than just steroids of physio. Once I’ve had my MRI scan, I’ll know better what the timescale is. Hopefully though I won’t have to wait too long to have it sorted, but I’ll keep you in the loop.

So that’s the creaking and the bouncing sorted, which brings me to work! As always, it’s been pretty busy but a lot of fun over the last few weeks. Charlie Brook and I presented the three hour Diamonique Day finale last Tuesday and it was wonderful to have so many of you taking part on Twitter. I have to say that the buyers excelled in their choices, and all the new designs and brand new gemstones sold out.With Charlie

We didn’t have any biscuits this time around but I had rolled my own flapjack bites to keep Charlie energised, and he loved them! We had a few requests for specific designs, plus more of the quirky pendants as the Fox and the Hedgehog sold out really quickly. If you love Unicorns then make sure you don’t miss my Tuesday shows at 8pm as I could have a surprise for you! Actually, if you tune in next Tuesday I’m afraid you won’t see me as Colin and I have decided to go back to Gozo and catch the last of the summer sunshine. We’ve booked a little apartment for a week, and I can’t wait to feel the sun on my poor old bones.

I’ll be back on Sunday the 24th when our TSV is the BeautyBio GloPro! Yes, it’s a new one on me too, but I have been given a sample to try and will let you know how this Microneedling Regeneration Tool works. The consumer study results are very impressive with 97% of those who used it saying they felt an improvement in their skin’s firmness, and 100% saying it helped to stimulate their skin’s natural collagen.  Hopefully I’ll come back looker younger and plumper! : )

Competition time

Amanda Wakeley Quinn bag

But now (fanfare please!)  I am thrilled to tell you that I have the most beautiful, luxurious black pebble leather Amanda Wakeley Quinn Hobo handbag! (pictured above left) This handbag was our TSV on Tuesday and would now cost you £289 if you were to buy it directly from our website. It comes in a large white Amanda Wakeley monogrammed box, and has a signature canvas dust cover bag to keep it in.
Box and dustbagAll you need to do to be in with a chance of winning this much coveted prize is to choose the correct answer to the following question. I thought it was quite appropriate as London Fashion week starts today, Friday 15th September, but when did this event first begin?

A. 1993

B. 1984

C. 2001

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). The competition closes at noon on Tuesday the 26th September and and I will announce the winner on air on that evening during my Diamonique Show at 8pm. Full terms and conditions can be found here. Don’t miss out!

Finally, I just thought I’d post these last few photos of the changing seasons. I took the first one way back in May, and then the second just yesterday.  Bring on the autumn I say : )

summer
Autumn

Take care and do keep in touch,

With my love,

    I had no idea there was going to be a competition I was watching you and glen and thinking how well you looked. I didn’t even know how to find your blog never done anything like this before but I found your blog at last. I watched the Amanda wakeley show the other day and admired her bags and thought the matching purse would look great, I could never afford to buy the handbag, cross my fingers I might be lucky and win it, they are so well made with a suede lining. Look after yourself.

      Hello there Sylvia. Thank you for the compliment! I have my hair cut and coloured by Joanne at Artworks Hair Studio in Windsor – a lovely salon and a very talented stylist. I tend to use a silver shampoo on my hair once a week to stop the colour from becoming brassy but other than that it’s all Philip Kingsley! Elasticizer twice a week, and his Volumising Shampoo and Body Building Conditioner, plus the spray in styler Maximiser. I use their One More Day dry shampoo but Percy and Reed’s Hairspray.

    I know your fear of any pain being cancer emerging elsewhere . I finished my chemotherapy, then onto Radiationtherapy . That all came to a close at the beginning of July this year . I had grade 2 breast cancer . Just awaiting my mammogram next month . Then with all hope they have done their job . I cannot fault the care that I have received and am so very grateful to the staff and surgeon , not forgetting the oncologist. I live in north Wales . Not far from Chester . But I watch you and admire your tenacity and strength of life . You are a beautiful Lady that shines from within and out . I wish you much happiness and love in life . X

      Dear Kay, I salute you. It’s a pretty heavy schedule isn’t it, but how wonderful that it’s all behind you now. I have everything crossed for you and the results of your mammogram, and am certain everything has been done to give you the best possible outcome. I too was very lucky to have an incredible team supporting me, and I still see my onologist every six months. You sound pretty strong yourself, and I know that in the coming years you will do as I’ve done, and that is to cram as much as possible into every waking hour. I wish you much love and happiness in your life too. Ali x

    Hi Ali,
    Lovely photos of you bouncing with honey! How brilliant! At least bouncing is easier on the body but how do you keep so upbeat Ali? You have a lot to contend with. I’m glad the bone scan was fine but not so great you’ve to have more surgery. I guess a holiday will keep the spirits up. Was it June you were in Gozo? I’m sure it’s still warm. Lucky duck. Enjoy. Just horrendous to hear and see all the dreadful reports from the hurricanes and earthquakes recently. Really makes you think how fickle our race can be sometimes. Take care for now x

    • Alison Keenan September 23, 2017 at 7:15 pm -  Reply

      Dear Susan, Lovely to hear from you, and I’m glad you liked the photos 🙂 The bouncing was quite sedate in truth, but it’s days like that with Honey that keep my spirits up. I just try and cram as much into each day as I can to be honest, and I fully appreciate how lucky I’ve been when I hear about disasters such as the hurricanes you’ve mentioned. Whatever time I have I really want to spend it with those I love, doing the things I love most. Writing and reading the comments here always cheers me too! Take care and thanks for writing, love Ali x

    Hi Ali, the answer to your question is 1984.
    Sorry I haven’t been in touch for a while, hubby being a lollipop man he’s just had 6 weeks off so we’ve been getting out and about. We didn’t go away but had some lovely days out in our Derbyshire countryside. What with that and looking after our little Charlie it’s been quite hectic. He’s a real little chatterbox now as I’m sure your little Honey is. There’s only 3 months between them I think, Charlie will be 3 in January.
    I’m so pleased that your fears were unfounded when you had your bone scan. I completely understand your reluctance though, I’m afraid the doctor is always the last resort for me! Silly really as you just spend time worrying about something that’s nothing to worry about! I’m afraid I’m one of life’s worriers. I wish I wasn’t but there it is, we can’t change the way we’re made can we?
    Your break in Cornwall with your friend looked idyllic, it’s a beautiful county isn’t it? We haven’t been for years, must think about going again!
    Anyway Ali I’ll say bye for now. Have a lovely holiday next week. Keeping fingers, toes, legs and everything else crossable for that beautiful handbag! Love Sue xx

    • Alison Keenan September 23, 2017 at 7:25 pm -  Reply

      Dear Sue, lovely to hear from you and thanks for entering the competition. How lovely that your husband has had the summer off with you and little Charlie. You’re right there’s a four month gap between Honey and Charlie – the chatting is fab isn’t it? I never quite know what she’s going to come out with next! What a great job your husband has! I bet the kids love him 🙂 I’m glad I’m not the only one reluctant to find things out… not very sensible I know but human I guess. My sister once said to me that Worry is like a rocking horse. You expend a great deal of energy riding it, but it gets you nowhere… She’s right of course. My Cornwall break was very special, and I’d highly recommend you go back. Love Ali xx

Being disabled myself, I totally get that you put off going to the doctors due to fear of what s/he might say, I have been in that situation myself, many times! (Truth be told, now is one of them!).

    Dearest Ali, I’m so very sorry that you’re facing more surgery & that you’ve experienced the fear & dread associated with a possible recurrence of disease. I’m relieved that you’re relieved & hope that this problem can be sorted asap. You may have been one of the more sedate bouncers but you would have been the most glamorous & the body language with Honey says everything about your relationship. Colin returned from Yosemite on Monday; his climbing trip was a great success, the photos are incredible & because he spent his last night in a hotel he got all his washing done – no revolting heap of much-worn socks this time..! My sister was an absolute love all the time he was away, she phoned me every night & insisted that I kept the door that opens onto the garden ‘locked at all times’. We bought her a load of violas as a thank you & when we went to see her she gave me my birthday present (five weeks early) it was a book she’d made of our trip to Chelsea in May, such super photos & great memories. That’s the theme this weekend as today’s our anniversary & it’s Ellie’s birthday on Monday; I’m doing supper for the four of us & last night Colin & I went to see The Manfreds with Paul Jones. They were fantastic & he’s gorgeous, I couldn’t believe his energy & how young he looks at 75. How lovely to have a return trip to Gozo, it was obvious from you holiday blog that you loved the island, very much as we love Sicily, & I wonder if it’s being an island race that attracts us to others. My answer to your competition is B – 1984, I remember it well. Love from Jo x

    Hi Alison glad your having a nice break in gozo again and sorry to hear your news about the operation poor you I can understand you would put of seeing about it we are all the same when it comes to that. You asked me to let you know how I got on about the swelling in my ankles and leg well good news it’s nothing to do with my heart kidneys etc they were concerned my heart was struggling to pump blood around but all is ok just have to cut down on saturated fat in my diet to keep the colesterol good as there is alot of heart problems in my mums side of the family mum died suddenly of a heart attack I think I told you before so no answer to the swelling maybe something I have to put up with just come back from Windsor so all the walking made my feet hurt nice weather though so enjoyed it .The doctor said it’s the metatarsil bones in my feet that are causing some pain so she has referred me to a podiatrist but it won’t help the swelling I have to wait and see if it’s nhs or private hopefully it’s nhs I spent a fortune last year with the repetitive strain in my shoulder so watch this space anyway you enjoy your rest see you back on QVC by the way Les wishes you well he’s not a big fan of shopping channels but always thinks your the best one when I have QVC on you take care and a complete guess for the competition is 1984 love Loraine xx
