I'm sorry I missed Fashion on Friday again last week but I was at a wedding with my daughter. One of the girls that she was in 'Addictive Girlz' with a couple of years ago was getting married and as she had stayed at our house a few times when they were rehearsing, I was invited too.
Alix looked stunning on her big day. The dress was gorgeous and her bridesmaids were in a beautiful shade of sage green satin. There was a slight delay to the start of the ceremony, about forty minutes actually, as Alix had forgotten her bouquet!!!! She managed to 'dodge' the rain showers for the ceremony and the photos which was lucky, as apparently the previous day had been torrential rain.
Sophie and I drove north after I finished work on Thursday evening. We were doing reasonably well until we hit a total standstill for an hour on the M40 due to an accident. It meant we were very late getting to the hotel we had booked into for our overnight stay. I won't name the hotel for the reasons you are about to read.
We'd booked a twin/family room. We got to the room and there was only a double bed. I spoke to reception and a few minutes later they arrived at the door and handed me the bedding to make up my own 'sofa bed'. Next morning I made a coffee for Sophie using the long life milk pots and the milk was sour! I didn't realise those little pots could go out of date and obviously neither did the hotel staff.
Even the breakfast we had ordered was delivered to the wrong room! Needless to say we won't be staying there again! I wonder if any of you have had similar experiences? Please don't name names if you are going to respond to that question LOL!
Do remember to watch on Wednesday night at 7pm for the highlight of QVC's year, the annual BCC fundraiser. Once again a lot of our suppliers have done 'special' items for the event. The only one I have seen so far is the Butler and Wilson pin which is seriously cute – you won't want to miss it. I'm not there for the event this year but I will see you on Thursday when Dennis Basso is back in town.
Hope to see you then
