Hello there! How’s your week been? I do hope you’ve coped with the freezing cold weather the last few nights, and that you’ve also had a chance to enjoy the sunshine!
As I mentioned in my previous blog, I’ve been finding it a little difficult to type, and so it’s been an incredibly slow process trying to answer each and every one of the lovely and sometimes heartbreaking comments that I found here on this week’s blog. What an amazing tribute to you though, to share all that you have, and to contend with all that you do! I feel truly humbled.
When I’d suggested you maybe post a few words at the end of the blog so that we had names to choose from for our prizes, I genuinely hadn’t expected to have that much of a response, or to find out that SO many of you are living with cancer, nursing someone who has the disease, or missing someone who lost the fight… It has been truly inspiring and I would have loved to give every one of you my ‘I Hope’ pendant… But sadly, there can only be two winners, and picked out at random to receive a pendant each are; Diane Shaw and Dee Gill. Congratulations, ladies – I wish you the best of health and much happiness to wear it.
I’m going to keep this blog short but I do intend to write back to all of you before I’m back on air on the 21st November. My physio is pleased with my progress and although the sessions can be pretty brutal I am definitely noticing a difference in my range of movement.
Of course I’ve become pretty adept with my left hand over this last month, but my right hand still won’t allow me to wash my left armpit, pull any clothes on over my head, or brush the back of my hair! In fact I’ve got so fed up with my hair looking like a mop that I’ve decided to go for a completely different style and length. I do hope you’ll like what you see when I’m finally back on air, and fingers crossed it’ll be as dynamic a change as Claire Sutton becoming a red head!! She looks amazing 🙂
Of course I’ve been keeping up with my friends at the Q while I’ve been away, and couldn’t help but get caught up in the excitement surrounding this weekend’s Elemis Christmas TSV! You can already buy it online at qvcuk.com and there are two choices in the six-piece Face and Body Collection, one of which features a brand new fragrance enticingly entitled Exotic Blooms!
There’ll be several smiling and clear-skinned faces in my family this Christmas! Talking of which, when I return I’ll be bringing you all kinds of gift ideas in shows that include Diamonique, Lulu Guinness, Rino & Pelle Outerwear and OPI to name but a few! I hope it helps you tick a few names off your Christmas list 🙂
As I’m still not able to drive, I’ve been going a little stir crazy at home, but Colin drove me to Dorset to see Roz and Chris and we were able to make the most of the beautiful weather there and enjoy views like these.
Stay well, and please do bear with me, as I never break a promise, and with a carefully positioned cushion and a well supported elbow and wrist to rest my shoulder, I will write back to you 🙂
Thanks, as always, for taking the time to write to me.
With my love, Ali xx
