I got beaten by a six year-old at bowling!


Me and mum I was back home in Bristol recently to celebrate a few birthdays – my mum, my dad and my niece Jasmine – so it was a busy weekend!

I bought Jasmine a few little pressies, and a lovely pair of Honora pearl earrings for my mum. They were actually a TSV back in December, so who says I'm not organised? Needless to say, Mum's now a complete Honora convert!

We also went bowling. Jasmine absolutely loved it, but I'm ashamed to say that the final scoreboard Me with Mum, Ellie and Jasmine at the bowling alley looked like this:

Ellie (my sister) – 85
Carol (my mum) – 62
Jasmine – 50
Craig – 35

Oh dear, I was defeated by a six year-old! I just seemed to direct all my balls down the gully. Do you have any tips on how I can improve? I'm going bowling again soon with friends and if I don't do better I'm going to be the laughing stock!

Have a good weekend and see you soon,
Craig. x.

    Hi Craig
    Try to keep your wrist straight – don’t twist it as you release the bowling ball, and slow down – adjust your steps up to the line so that your leg is not in the way of your bowling arm. I’m not an expert but just a few tips. Oh and practise virtually on a wii sports before your next visit. Lyn x

    Hello Craig, just had to tell you that you have found another fan. I dont know how but I shared the hours you did at the beginning of the week,first time I have watched your shows.I watch QVC every day I dont know how I managed to miss you,my loss.I think you are a breath of fresh air,I love people who are in love with life,and you seem to fit in to that catagory, with bells on.The interaction with the models is funny in a very nice way,you make everyone look at ease. I think QVCfound a little gem when they found you.I will certainly look forward to your shows in future,and may you go from strenght to strenght. Madj.
