My resilient mum, plus win the latest Judith Williams TSV

433

Hi everyone. I do hope you’re keeping well this winter. It has been pretty cold but, at last, we are getting a few glimpses of that elusive sunshine. It never fails to lift my mood.

Speaking of things elusive, I have been guilty of this of late in terms of my QVC blogs. If you don’t already follow me on Twitter then please do. I’m @TheHuntley, Instagram @catherine_huntley and my Facebook page is Catherine Huntley TV. I tend to keep up with those on almost a daily basis but, as I’m aware many folks don’t use those avenues of social media, I try to keep you up to date here as much as I can.

So, if you don’t know already my mum has been a bit poorly lately. A couple of weeks ago I got the call from the paramedics saying they thought she’d had a stroke. It was at a time when I had this crazy virus which has been going round the whole presenter team and I’d already had two hot toddies after a couple of really tough nights so I couldn’t drive. It was also a Saturday night. My son and I called around all the friends we could think of and no one was around to take us to the hospital which was half an hour away. All the taxis were booked up with long waiting times due to it being a Saturday so I resorted to calling on my wonderful neighbours, Kath and John. They were just so kind and got us in the car right away.

Upon arrival at the hospital we were kept waiting for two hours as they were doing all sorts of tests. It was agonising feeling so powerless, plus I did feel like I was on another planet already with the dreaded lurgy and lack of sleep. Did she even know I was there? Were they hiding something from me? Is that why I couldn’t go through and see here yet? My mind was racing. I felt like falling apart but held it together. This was the same hospital I spent day after day and night after night by Mum’s side back in August of 2015. Some of you may have read about ‘My mum, the miraculous minion’ on my blog. It was a very challenging time and this recent experience meant it all came flooding back.

Well, finally, after repeatedly asking when I could see her, we were allowed to go through. She couldn’t move her left leg and had problems with the right side of her face. In my mind I began calculating how I might be able to convert my garage into an annexe for her. I had done the same  when my, now 24 year old, son was about 7 years old and suffered his first epileptic seizure. It was several days before they identified it as such and he was completely unresponsive to anything for several hours yet still breathing. It’s amazing how in moments like these the ‘new’ or ‘alternate’ reality flashes before your mind’s eye as your brain tries to find solutions to adapt to what’s going on. I am relieved to say (in both cases) the worst didn’t happen, after all.

 

Mum stayed in hospital for several days undergoing lots of tests and observation but bounced back like I could never have imagined! It turns out she had a TIA which is also know as a mini stroke. She has had these before but this time the doctors seemed to have been convinced it was a stroke until her MRI scan. She is one tough cookie!

Just to lighten things I thought I’d show you ways we kept amused whilst in the hospital…firstly, it was funny to see mum’s reaction to seeing double when I was on her telly (the style channel which isn’t always live) and also in the room in person! She was cracking jokes and making the nurses laugh, too.

I think this picture of her with the dinner cloches says it all! Suffice to say, she is doing great now and will, probably and hopefully, live to be 100, at least!

So now, I’m giving you the chance to feel fabulous by winning Judith Williams‘ forthcoming Today’s Special Value which is featuring from midnight on the 27th and all day throughout the 28th! The approximate value of the collection is £50 and I have four sets to give away to four lucky winners who will be selected at random.

All you have to do is leave a comment below and include your email address (don’t worry this won’t be published) so we can contact you if you’re a winner.

The closing date is at midnight on Sunday the 26th of February and winners will be announced on Monday the 27th on my blog. Standard terms and conditions apply.

The TSV contains hero products such as the Life Long Beauty Neck & Décolleté cream, her Rose Oil and the beautiful Rose Cleansing Water. The rose ingredients are suitable for all skin types, especially dry, sensitive and ageing skin and, particularly, ideal for the harsh winter months.

The Judith Williams skincare range combines innovation with the purest ingredients from nature and are specifically selected by Judith for their beneficial properties. Her luxurious portfolio of skincare ranges caters for every age group and skin type at prices every woman can afford.

The Rose Stem Cell Face Cream is a brand new launch. The cream combines soothing and moisturising rose water with the protective Rose Moschata extract. Stem cells from Rosa Centifolia have been added to uniquely boost the formula. The Life Long Beauty Collection uses some of nature’s best natural moisturisers such as shea butter, almond oil and rose essence extracted from Rose Centifolia grown exclusively for Judith Williams in Grasse, France.

It’s a very special collection so please don’t forget to enter for your chance to win. I look forward to reading your comments!

Whatever you’re up to today I hope it brings you plenty of smiles.

Love Catherine x

My mum is my best friend , my role model, my first port of call with news if any kind, good or not so good. I’m so glad your Mum is recovering Catherine and has many more years ahead of her for you to enjoy together.

    I lost my mum two years ago to the dreadful cancer of the oesophagus. Fortunately she didn’t have to suffer for too long, but even though I know she is in a better place now, I still miss her every day and wish she was still with me.

    Hi, such a trying time for you, your family and particularly your mum. Be positive. That’s the way forward. Recently I had a heart attack, then from that they found lung cancer, but I have survived and so will your mum. We are quite resiliant and the love of our family keeps us going and it’s quite apparent your mum is most important in your life. Good luck to her and may she keep the love of her family foremost in her life.

    Dear Katherine, firstly would like to say that’s lovely pics of you & your mum. It must have been a huge shock for you, but a great relief now that your mum is on the road to recovery. You are like your mum, she appears to have a bubbly personality just like you. I lost my mum to breast cancer in 2009 I gave up work for 18 months to look after her full time at home as it was breast cancer (metastatic )which meant it spread to her bones etc . My late mums name was Katherine & you were always one of her favourite presenters she like me think that you are a very graceful person. Your mum is the best friend you will ever have in your life & not a day goes by when I don’t think about her she never ever complained was a very kind lady & lost a son my dear brother Garry in december 2007. It was a very difficult time. Time is a great healer though & I go on enjoying my work as a night care assistant. Qvc has lots of makeup which helps with the fight of fatigue & some excellent offers & you must enjoy your work very much! I have great memories which helps everyone in tragic situations. Wish both your mum & you well & the best of health for the future. Please enter me in the Judith Williams competition as I think the oil looks a lovely treat. Thank you xx

I must say that you are the most sincere, articulate and warm hostesses I have ever seen on QVC. Just adore you and enjoy watching when you are on presenting all the fun products. Thanks for making me feel at home with the transition of moving here. I thought I heard you mention that you were born in USA…if so where? We are from SFBay Area in CA!

On my early morning call to the bathroom ( if you know what I mean ) ! I’ve heard a thrush warming up and as the weeks have gone on , he’s almost in full song, so heartening to think that spring is nearly here.

Hope she’s up and about very soon. You look after yourself too, also important!(I have my “matrons” hat on, as I was a nurse for 25 years…..so being bossy!)
    Take care 🙂

    Dear Catherine, you are a very positive person by nature, and always a pleasure to hear your voice and see you on screen! however difficult this might be with the ongoing issues with your Mother’s health, please never lose that joyous attitude you have (which seems you might have got this from your Mother!!) and carry on enjoying and treasuring every moment you have with you loved ones!! sadly, I lost my dearest last week..best regards

    Hi Catherine, I’m sending lots of hugs to both you and your Mum. You don’t realise how much you’ll miss them until it’s too late. Mum’s are very special and I wish her a speedy recovery so that so much more memories can be made. Take care of each other and keep smiling. x

    Oh Catherine,
    I was so sorry to read about your dear mum, I do hope she is fully recovered now, and she looks amazing, and sounds as though she is a very happy and fun lady.

    Treasure her Catherine, my mother died 21 years ago and I still miss her, we take each day for granted, but every minute is so very precious.. I kiss my mum’;s photo every night before I go to bed..she was my rock through some very very unhappy years with an abusive father, husband and brothers..

    So glad to hear your son is doing well too… I have two grown up children and I brought them up on my own, life has been hard, but I am so very proud of my son & daughter, they have grown into two wonderful adults, who now have their own homes, (all paid for) and thankfully, they ‘phone me every night to ake sure I am okay. I have been divorced for 40 years)

    You are a joy to watch on QVC Catherine, so gentle and fun, and so very very pretty…your Mum and family must be very proud of you.

    Take care Catherine, and I hope your nasty germs have all gone.

    Kindest wishes

    Barbara xxxxx

    Hi Catherine, firstly I am truly happy and relieved your mum is ok. You must I have been so worried, I lost my mum unexpectedly 6 years ago. Her anniversary is 20th of March and although I tell myself it’s just another day, the panic attacks are already setting in. She was such a strong wee woman and endured much in her life. Like you I was extremely close to my mum and thought she would always be around…. even though in the back of your mind you know that’s not possible. I lost my Dad when I was 5 years old, he was 53 to a heart attack. Mum had me , her last baby and unexpected arrival when she was 43 and she passed away when she was 86. Ironically I was same age as she was when she gave birth to me . Anyway dear Catherine don’t worry about what might happen nor when just embrace all the moments you both can and make some more magical memories. I’m sure your precious mum has many years left and with a daughter as nutty and funny as you, she’s as blessed to have you as you are her. Sending love and positive energy your way. 💛 About the Judith Williams tsv would be lovely if you could enter me and winning it might cheer me up as I love her range.xxx thank you !

    Love Judith Williams LLB and look forward to trying new products.

    So good that your mum is doing well. I know that when my mum was quite ill last year, the worry and the lack of sleep made work hard. But I work a lot on my own and in a small team. I’m not on TV in front of so many people! Hair and makeup would have given up on me and brought in gardeners and plasterers!
