Craig Housemove

Fragrance, awards and moving house!

33

Hi there! How are you?

Wow, what a week it has been for Craigey!  Firstly there was the incredible Miller Harris show last Wednesday, did you catch any of it? New guest John was brilliant and it was an honour to host that show as it has fast become my favourite fragrance brand ever! I would love to know, if you bought anything, what your thoughts are as fragrance is so personal but I really hope you adore them. Here is a pic of John and I in the studio:

The following day I whizzed up to Knowsley to co-host the Knowsley Business Awards. It was such an incredible night and wow, what a booming borough Knowsley is! The night was an absolutely glittering success and there was a real sense of pride. And special congratulations to QVC Knowsley who won best employer for 50+ employees for their health and wellbeing programme. Hope you like the pics.

Then on the weekend I moved house! After 15 years and a rather stressful week of packing (last minute of course!) I had a wonderful day with brilliant removal guys and friends and family turning up to help. I have moved from North London to South London and it feels like a wonderful fresh start – just what I needed after what has been in some ways quite a difficult year. New beginnings and it feels great!

L'Occitane TSV

 

 

Finally – how excited are you about the big L’Occitane TSV this weekend?! I can’t wait to show it to you Sunday at 1pm.  I won’t spoil the surprise of what’s inside but isn’t the presentation itself beautiful – perfect options for both the lucky lady or man you may choose to give it to!!

Thanks for reading my blog, do leave me a comment as I reply to them all and send you big hugs!

    Hi there Craig, been following your progress with QVC since you won the comp. just can’t think it’s more than 7 yrs on!!! Love your cheery outlook on life & you certainly energise the rest of the day when you’re on the morning show. Love when you’re there with Catherine Huntly – good buddies obviously. Good health & happiness in your new home. Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year to you & yours.
    Love Christine xx

    Hi Craig, may I wish you love and happiness in your new home. Have you un-packed everything yet or you still surrounded by boxes. I like to watch you presenting the food shows lol. Also love to watch you with Richard Jackson. I hope you have a lovely garden in your new home. Good luck in all you do.

    Hi Patricia! Thanks for your lovely comment. One of the great benefits of where I’m living is that its more central so a lot of my friends tend to visit quite often when they are in the area. So thats really great. Thanks for what you said about Dale and I, thats really nice of you. I love the doing the Yankee Candle shows! So much fun. You have a fab week and stay in touch.

    Hi Ange,

    Thanks for your lovely message. L’Occitane is definitely one of my favourites too. The products are fantastic!

    Thanks, I’m getting more settled each day now and all going well. Hopefully by Xmas I’ll be fully settled.

    Have you got anything nice planned for xmas?

      Hi Craig
      Thanks for your reply, glad you’re getting sealed in. Christmas is a time for family & that’s how I plan to spend mine surrounded by family – what about you??

    Hiya Monica!

    Thanks for your kind message. I’m getting there thanks. Decided I would do things bit by bit otherwise it can all become a bit overwhelming. So a few boxes here and there but Im hoping by Xmas I’ll be fully settled.

    Glad to hear you love the food shows and my Garden shows with Richard. Sadly I don’t have a garden at my new place. As the place is a lot more central I happily settled for a balcony. But its a great size so I’m going to make it look really lovely with some nice plants :-).

    Thanks for asking how thing are. Stay in touch.

    Hi Craig loved reading your blog, hope you settle into your new home very soon, well done for moving in December, my family moved in December many years ago and my dad said never again! Hope to see you back on screen with Rosa from Yankee soon as the shows are a delight to watch. Best wishes to you and all your family. Merry Christmas! Carole X

    Hi Carole! Thanks for your message. Yes I think it was pretty brave but as it was right at the start of December I have a bit of time to get settled before Xmas arrives. So far so good! Thanks so much, really lovely to hear you enjoy my blog and also that you like my shows. Its always lovely to hear. Hope you have a fanastic Christmas and let me know how it went in the new year!

    I’m moving house in January and dreading it! A good opportunity for a thorough declutter though. My L’Occitane TSV was waiting for me when I got into work this morning and is beautiful – my treat for Christmas. A yankee candle or two will work wonders in my new place too. Roll on January x

    good luck in your new home, you would never know you had had a bad year, you are always so cheerful – I’ve had a rubbish one too, next year will be better for us all!

    Hi Craigy – All very best wishes for life in your new home – how exciting for you! Been a busy time for me (hence not being in touch) Mum had an op on her hand so been looking after her and my other half has pneumonia!! All crazy busy but that’s the way it is!! Going out for dinner tonight with my bestest friend (without her beautiful children – so we might get a word in!!) – Christmas has arrived when I see her as we don’t get together as often as we once did.
    Happy Christmas Mr Craigy – hope I might get chance to see you at QVC beauty bash – Wed PM session for me – fingers crossed xxx

    Hi Ange! Lovely to hear back from you. Your christmas sounds perfect to me! I am working quite a bit over christmas so not seeing my family until a couple of days after. However, in between work I’ve got some great plans with friends and they’ll be lots of lovely food and drink so I’m really looking forward to it. Have fun and enjoy. Hope to hear from you in the new year :-).
