Well I'm not sure if I've had duff information but I was expecting a Bank Holiday blast of sunshine and all I've seen is rain. I've whacked the central heating back on and my Egyptian tan is fading fast.
However I have been using Decleor's Gradual Glow which is fantastically brilliant and I even had a comment yesterday asking me if I had only just got back from Egypt (!), which amazed me. Hopefully we'll get great weather on the next Bank Holiday and I'll be with you in the evening, so I'll definitely be topping up the fake tan!
We tend not to go away over the holiday weekends as I can't bear being stuck in traffic. The last time we tried to get anywhere on a Bank Holiday weekend, it took us nine hours to get to Blackpool as the M6 was at a standstill – not my idea of fun.
Life in the Halliday household is as busy as ever! I honestly don't know where the time goes. My son, who is now 13, was invited to play his saxophone in Brussels to celebrate the 200th birthday of Adolphe Sax (the man who invented the instrument), so I was of course incredibly proud. He has moved into Jazz Sax and is now playing all the old tunes that I grew up with which is lovely. My husband and I can sit back at home with a glass of wine listening to him and it's like being in our own little bistro!
QVC meanwhile is bringing us a whole host of goodies. I must admit I love it when the gardening shows come around. Richard Jackson has been our resident gardening expert for many years on QVC and he really knows his stuff. I use Richard's Flower Power feed on everything in the garden for bigger and better results every time especially to get a great head start on my hanging baskets.
Also, the Gardening Product of the Month for May is beautiful. They are Japanese anemones from Hayloft Plants, who have been coming up with some incredible offers for QVC. Definitely take a look – they produce stunning flowers and they will come up year after year!
