Mine has been busy! Since last writing to you I have been down in Bristol organising and hosting my niece Jasmine's 10th birthday – such fun! I volunteered to do this as my sister Ellie was due to give birth that weekend so I figured she might have other things to deal with!! As it turns out she still hasn't had the baby, she is overdue so any day now!!
The party was great fun; there were 6 girls aged between 7 and 10 and then a willing Uncle Craig & Uncle Stuey!! We took a minibus from home down to the centre of Bristol, had a couple of games of Laser Fusion (I was determined we were going to do something to get the girls running around!), then it was off to Pizza Hut for a pizza party then back to my sisters for games, cake, movie & goody bags!! They had fun and Jasmine loved it. The following day we went for a family lunch and had another cake cutting & singing ceremony. My sister made a fabulous cake in the shape of a dog face – she is so talented!
Other than that, QVC has been very busy and lots of fun; I have been so lucky to host some great shows – one of my favourite has to be 'Anything Goes' last weekend – my Zumba dancing has caused quite a stir – I will have a DVD copy of it soon so if you missed it, I should have a video to put on this blog next week…. crazy!!!
Thank you SOOOO much for getting involved in my blog with your 3 highlights, I love reading your comments and find them funny, interesting and downright inspiring. I will, as ever reply to any comments you leave here!
OK, so here we go for this week's 3 things:
This has to be hosting my niece's birthday party, I love her so dearly and to have quality time with her and see her having fun with her friends was such pure magic.
FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK:
A fab tea towel (image left) I was given as a gift from our visit to Bristol for the birthday from a brilliant shop called 'Howkapow' in the Quakers Friar area of Bristol. It has recipes for cocktails on it and on a night out with Michael & Sarah from Thompson & Morgan on Tuesday I made us a Long Island Ice Tea, Lime Daiquiri & Amaretto Sour all using the recipes… they went down a storm!!
HAPPY THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:
Being with family & those close to me last weekend made me realise how amazing it is to make and share the memories of life and how blessed we are to have each other, these are the things to always hold in our heart.
Now, I would love to know YOURS!!!
Much love, have a great weekend and see you soon,
