I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend? Although I was working I did manage to have some family time, which was especially nice as Daniel had come home on Friday evening to spend the weekend with us.
Actually he has seen quite a lot of the M4 over the last few days as he had to drive back to Swansea on Monday to take training on Tuesday before driving back home ready for his young Swans v young Eagles match on Wednesday. It must have been a little strange for him to have his old team, Crystal Palace, playing his new lads, Swansea City, but I guess it is something he will have to get used to in professional football.
Unfortunately I couldn’t go and watch as I wasn’t feeling too well on Tuesday and Wednesday. It was only a migraine but I haven’t had one for a while and you forget just how debilitating they can be. Chris suggested going out for a walk on Tuesday to get some fresh air as it was such a lovely day.
We were only out for about forty-five minutes so imagine my surprise when we got home to find two parcels from QVC sitting on my doorstep. Even more surprising was the fact that one box contained the Yankee Candles I ordered on Easter Saturday, I’m already burning Wild Pansies, which is gorgeous, and the other parcel was the Stretch Hose TSV from Easter Sunday! I was very impressed with the speedy service.
I haven’t tried the hose yet but if this warm dry weather continues I may have to try it out this weekend. It will also come in handy for washing the car although I will be trying the sample of Greased Lightning car cleaner I was given over the weekend first… always assuming there is any left!
I only brought it home on Sunday and got back from work on Monday to see a positively sparkling red Mini on the driveway. Sophie had decided to clean her car for the first time in months, so you can imagine how dirty it was, but Greased Lightning, the water-free car cleaner, really had delivered a showroom shine as promised! We are both going to try Wet and Forget on our respective soft tops next to complete the car rejuvenation.
Talking of Monday evening, I managed to get home from QVC in record time so I was able to watch the whole of the second half of the match between Palace and Man City. We were already a goal up, much to the surprise of all the pundits, and then went 2 – 0 up after a wonder free kick from Jason Puncheon. In fairness Man City had over 70% possession but it’s the result and the points that count in the end. I hope my professor at the hospital is still speaking to me as he is a massive Man City fan!
As usual on a Friday I will be heading in to work shortly. I’m a little earlier than normal today as I have a 3pm show of Attitudes by Renee featuring the TSV, which has already been selling well. I am so looking forward to seeing Renee as she really is a lovely person.
Fashion on Friday today is Bob Mackie … Carlo Lazlo is becoming a very regular guest at 5pm on Fridays, which is fine by me as we have a great rapport. It is then my weekend off, such a shame as once again I will be missing Keeley from Elemis and her TSV on Sunday … maybe I’ll be having some more QVC deliveries next week!
I will however be in on Tuesday for Diamonique Day. If you watch me this afternoon you may just notice a sneak preview of Tuesday’s TSV ring… ssshhh, I didn’t tell you.
Let’s hope this beautiful spring weather continues for the weekend.
P.S. Did any of you do this for your children or grandchildren on Sunday? Before I left for work, and while a Luscious Lemon Cake was baking in the oven, I hid some chocolate eggs in the garden for my children to find… they are 27 and 28 years old but enjoyed it anyway! Jackie Kabler tweeted that she wished she was one of my kids!
