Not sure how accident prone you are but whether it's my advancing years or just sheer carelessness, I do seem to be more now than I was before.
Last Wednesday having had a beautiful pedicure in readiness for my Pedpro foot file launch, I managed to stub my toe on the bathroom step and smudge my nail polish!! Then, in a very busy car park – while searching for my keys (which makes a change from searching for my car) – I was shocked to find I was the reason for frantic hooting! My trolley had slyly trundled away from me and into the bumper of a small car that looked like a Lock & Lock container on wheels… the driver was not best pleased.
I have somehow managed over the last four days to tread on the cat, cut myself while shaving – I won't even go there – and then I inadvertantly sprayed sun protection under my arms instead of deodorant – which I think even Alison Young would feel a tad too protective…
But in all honesty, when the sun's shining, as it has done over the last four days, I'm a happy bunny. I watched the final of Britain's Got Talent, and thought they made an excellent choice, although I don't envy Piers, Amanda or Simon their task.
I was once asked to judge a local beauty pageant and didn't sleep a wink for the entire week before! Who do you risk offending? It's not usually the children who are most upset but the parents! I, for obvious reasons, was never in a local beauty pageant but was dressed up as one of the three bears with my brother and sister for a Butlin's Holiday Camp revue in the '60s. We came 2nd, but I think that was only because the judges took pity on my sister – who having spotted my Mum in the front row burst into tears!
Of course, we'd all have a heck of a way to go to ever compete with our very own Debbie Greenwood, who of course was awarded her own tiara and sash a few years back, having proved herself far more beautiful than everyone else in the British Isles. She hates being reminded of it, so I only wear my 'Debbie for Queen' T-shirt when she's not at QVC Towers!
Were you ever a beauty queen or entered into a fancy dress competition… do tell!!! I'd love to hear
Must fly, my four-day break is now over and I'm returning to spend a fab two hours in the company of something incredibly desirable, expensive and rare… Dale! And a fantastic collection of diamonds!
See you today at 3pm.
