It was my mummy's birthday and she came to stay, bringing with her a special present from my brother Neil. Neil had taken a small piece of cine footage and had it converted onto DVD!
It was fabulous to see my mummy younger then than I am now, flirting outrageously with the camera and looking amazing in a bikini.
Plus, the utter joy of seeing my Daddy 'come to life' was incredible. He died when I was 13-years-old so it was emotional but incredible! To see his moving image, his face, mouth and eyes so like mine, and to be able to share him with my own children was so very, very special.
We can't wait to transfer all the other footage. I just wish there was sound, but hey, you can't always have it all. I was just grateful to have that!
I'll be in touch soon.
Hello everyone, Claire here!
HOORAY FOR SUNSHINE! I’ve just got back from my first family holiday abroad and thought I’d catch up with you.
I never go on holiday without…
Because we went abroad this year I took high SPF sun cream, hats, sunglasses, games and colouring stuff… how I wished for an Archos to keep me entertained! Oh and I couldn’t leave without a medical kit… not that it did much good as my son Joe ran into a glass wall and had to go to hospital within half an hour of landing! Thankfully he was ok and still enjoyed the holiday.
Clothes-wise, I always take a sarong – essential for covering up – and a pashmina for the evenings. My favourite trend this summer is the maxi dress. I LOVE them! Oh and I always look out for little strapless tops as I can’t stand getting strap marks.
I always pack a book as I love reading on holiday. But my hubby Dan hates me taking them as I get totally absorbed in the story and can’t put them down! However, this time I had to keep the children happy so I’ve only just finished it.
Before I leave I exfoliate like mad! I love using the new body range from Gatineau and Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel included in the Elemis Get Set For Summer Collection. I slather on tan accelerator twice a day, it really makes a difference. Painting my toes is a must before hitting the beach. I love Nails Inc, they have some fab summer colours at the mo.
Also conditioner conditioner conditioner…I love Louise Galvin Sacred Locks Treatment Masque for Fine Hair and even popped Philip Kingsley Elasticizer on my daughter Maddie’s hair too!! The sun’s great at brightening colour but mine needs lots of TLC in the sun.
I hope you’re enjoying the summer despite the rain we’ve been having!
Love Claire x
