So, this is my first blog for this brand new year. Christmas seems a long time ago now the decorations have all been taken down and my mobile phone ringtone is back to its normal ring – it was set to Mariah Carey's 'All I want for Christmas'!
If you were tuned in to QVC during the Christmas week you will have noticed I spent most of that week at 'QVC Towers'. There's always a great atmosphere here at Christmas and, in return for working so much over that week, I was given the following week off for New Year celebrations.
I hope you had a great time over Christmas and New Year, too. I know it can be a mixed blessing as we, inevitably, miss those no longer with us even more acutely at this time of year. I took a few quiet moments to remember absent friends and toast their memory. I sincerely hope your festive time gave you some wonderful moments to smile about.
I spent time with family and friends. New Year's Eve was a friends fancy dress party. I opted for a gingerbread woman costume as I left it till the last minute to find something! Enjoyed a New Year's Day pyjama party with some other friends, too.
I also spent a lot of time with Thorntons chocolates! I gave lots as gifts but was delightfully surprised to receive plenty too!
My plan is to get through all the naughty leftover food and drink in January and then get back on my AeroPilates machine and kick start my healthier phase with Diet Chef. Sometimes it's best not to put too much pressure on yourself to start everything off on the 1st of January.
I'm wishing you a happy, healthy and laughter filled 2014 and look forward to keeping in touch throughout the year.
Love Catherine xxx
