Hello – hope you are well and there are still some windows of sunshine where you are? London can’t really make up its mind, it really is four seasons in a day at the moment, haha!
Had a great week last week, was working with one of my beloved friend and colleagues, Caroline Archer, on a Liz Earle show this week, I rather like this photo of us, it’s me trying to channel my inner cool dude look, haha!
Also went to see a friend in Suffolk for the day this week and visited a beautiful little village called Lavenham, what a pretty place, I particularly fell in love with the market square and its gorgeous half timbered buildings, a perfect place to sit in the sun with a pint of cider and enjoy the surroundings!
And also had cocktails and dinner at a wonderful restaurant in King’s Cross called German Gymnasium, a former gymnasium built in 1864-65 for the German Gymnastics Society. The building still looks and feels as though a gymnast is about to take to the rings or catapult the horse at any moment!
And lots to look forward to this week including ‘Love Your Home’ day on QVC which I am launching this evening into Wednesday. The Today’s Special Value of the day is an incredible display from Peony flowers – completely different to anything they have offered as a TSV before, this is a large green plant in a handmade terracotta pot and it’s breathtaking!
I tried it in various different areas of my flat and as I suspected it looked great on the balcony, by the front door and on the landing of the staircase but I was also pleasantly surprised to see how stunning it looked in the corner of my bedroom, do you agree?
It also comes fantastically well-packaged so you know it’s going to turn up in one piece!
I can’t say too much but I can reveal it’s under £100 and will be available in Easy Pay instalments… shhh, don’t say a word! Make sure you join the wonderful Julie Bates from Peony and I for the launch live at midnight tonight or for the breakfast time repeat tomorrow morning.
Big, big hugs
