Well what a fabulous fortnight we have just had with Easter and then the Royal Wedding! I hope lots of you enjoyed the extra Bank Holidays and maybe some of you took the 3 days in the middle off and had yourselves a holiday..? I didn't, I think I've had quite enough holiday just recently!!!
I did have a few days off over Easter in my normal pattern of working days and thoroughly enjoyed not only the weather but also seeing my team, Crystal Palace, scrape a win against Leeds United on Easter Monday which virtually guaranteed our survival in the Championship. I'm hoping for a better season next year as that was much too close for comfort!!
And then the Royal Wedding… WOW!!! I hadn't really given it too much thought as it seemed to come around so quickly, but I sat down to watch it before leaving for work and was transfixed. Everything went so smoothly and looked so amazing, but the thing that really moved me was the music… I'm not ashamed to admit that at one point I had a tear in my eye.
I thought the choir were superb and the musical arrangement of Jerusalem was the best I have ever heard. I'm convinced that nobody in the world could have put on this particular event better – I was very proud and wish the royal couple all the best for a happy future together.
The rest of 'my' Royal Wedding day was spent at QVC but I didn't mind – an hour with Lulu and 2 hours with Simon Wilson… and that's supposed to be work!! LOL!!
And then of course came Zumba. Although I'd heard of it, as there are some classes in my area, I'd never tried it before. The day prior to the TSV day, Sophie, my daughter, and I put on the beginner DVD and had a go.
I think of myself as being reasonably fit but after the instuctional DVD and the 20 minute workout I was 'glowing'!!!! I was wondering how I was going to get through a whole hour and talk at the same time but Matt and Enrico made it such fun that it passed in a flash. Let me know how you get on if you bought it.
More great shows to look forward to with a new fashion range launching today during 'Fashion on Friday' at 5pm – it's called Annalee + Hope and this collection is full of wearable, very affordable separates. Then tomorrow it's the Liz Earle TSV which I would recommend buying early as it's probably their best ever!
Speak soon, Julia xx
