Lulu Guinness bag

New beginnings

1,235

As I sit here writing, there is a gorgeous smell of chocolate cake wafting through from the kitchen. Today is my daughter, Sophie’s, 28th birthday. I’ve read somewhere that our lives go in seven-year cycles and, if that’s true, she is beginning a new phase in her life and what a way to start… she has just accepted an offer for a new job.

I’m hoping this is a sign of great things to come. We will be going out for a birthday dinner tonight when we are both home from work, a rare treat for me as I no longer go out much in the evenings because of feeling tired from my medication. By the way, I had my latest blood tests done yesterday so I should have the results by the end of the month – fingers crossed everything is still moving in the right direction.

Lulu Guinness bag

So, as promised in the PS on last week’s blog, I have a competition today to win a Lulu Guinness bag. It isn’t brand spanking new but almost! It’s been with me on two occasions to the Royal Albert Hall. The first was to watch the International Dance Championships as a guest of British Polio and the second, funnily enough, was on Sophie’s birthday two years ago when we went to watch Cirque du Soleil.

Because I don’t go out much any more, I thought it would be nice to pass my bag on to someone who will make more use of it. The bag, a large PollyAnna in black cherry patent leather is a Most Wished For item on our website and brand new would cost £325. If you would like a chance to win it you need to comment on the blog below with the answer to this question:

 

In which year was Lulu Guinness awarded her OBE? Was it:-

a) 1996

b) 2006

c) 2016

 

The competition closes at midnight on Thursday 14th and I’ll announce the randomly selected winner on here next Friday. Good luck!

Well, everything is pretty much back to normal for us after Christmas and the New Year. I managed to get some writing done on the third book in the Liberty Sands trilogy on Monday and Tuesday… 6,000 words now, only another 74,000 to go! Wednesday was a ‘write-off’ unfortunately as I had to go to the dentist for the preparation work for the new crown I need.

I also had to have another crown ‘stuck’ back on after losing it to a peanut last Sunday!! While I was having my teeth drilled some of you may have been reading a guest blog I wrote for a book blog called Linda’s Book Bag. If you didn’t see it you can link to it here.

Calendar

I forgot to mention on last week’s blog that I have been chosen to be a calendar ‘girl’. The company that prints the paperback copies of my books for our website and Amazon is called Ingram Spark and they selected their twelve most popular authors to feature in their 2016 calendar – I was well chuffed.

Life's a Beach in calendar

Incidentally, if you are at the Beauty Bash for the afternoon session on Tuesday 19th do feel free to bring your books along to be signed or personalised if you bought a signed copy of ‘Life’s a Beach and Then…’ through QVC. I’m there with Debs Flint and I’m sure she will also be happy to sign books.

As it happens, the 19th is also Chris and my 38th anniversary of living together … is it a Leap Year this year????!!!

I was back on air at QVC yesterday after my seven-day break. One of my shows was Spotlight on Italian Jewellery, which prompts me to remind you that the new series of Spotlight on Jewellery starts on Friday 29th January at 6pm. I’m pretty sure we will be featuring ear climber earrings at some point in the series as they are one of the hottest trends. If you haven’t seen the style and how you wear them take a look at this current jewellery icon:-

I have lots of great shows this coming week; Cozee Home tomorrow at 6pm, Radley on Sunday at 4pm, EMU Monday at 4pm (including the Today’s Special Value if it’s still around, pictured below) and both Dennis Basso and Ralph Rossini with Honora pearls at 5 and 6pm respectively on Wednesday.

EMU

Today’s Fashion on Friday is a Kim & Co outlet with lovely Carla Lazlo but I’ll also see you at 3pm for Household Helpers.

 

Must dash, I’ve got a cake to ice before I leave for work! Have a great weekend.

Much love,

Julia xx

    Hi Julia,
    You have come to mind twice lately. Last week I had just been to my osteopath, was waiting to go across the zebra crossing and this white feather came from nowhere and floated down in front of me, also I was looking through some cake recipes and found your chocolate cake which I got from your blog.

    Many Happy Returns to Sophie, hope you have a great meal, also hope her new job goes well.

    Congratulations on your and Chris’s Anniversary and becoming a calendar girl.

    Do hope your results are good, will keep my fingers crossed. Dentist, not my favourite place, my Dentist is French and unfortunately I cannot understand him, I say yes and no, hope he is not saying do you want them all out and I say yes, whoop’s.

    Have finished your second book, must compliment you as a super book, I could not put it down, love the story. Will put up a review for you.

    Looking forward to Mr. Selfridge on tonight.

    Like your line up of Emu’s, only joking, what did you say, you wish, I love Emu’s.

    Before I forget Lulu Guinness got her OBE in 2006. What a generous offer to donate your bag.

    Take care.

    Love Jean XX

    Hi Julia
    The competition answer is b) 2006.
    I would love to win your bag not just because it’s a Lulu but mainly because you have owned and used it. (I’d get a fortune on e-bay for it!! Just kidding of course!!) Fingers crossed.
    Congratulations to you and Sophie, what a great start to 2016 for you both. Do you know what month you’ll be yet?
    The best of luck with your test results. It seems as if things are really going well for you so hopefully that’s a good omen.
    As regards the ‘leap year’ reference, I’ll keep an eye out for an announcement at the end of Feb/early March then!!
    I had to smile about your peanut story. I too have visited the dentist this week but fortunately my visit was planned for a routine check up. I am fortunate to have a lovely and very thorough dentist who has taken to giving me snippets of general dental advice as I leave him. It’s usually advice about good cleaning habits but this week it was about being mindful of not clenching my teeth and being wary of biting down on harder foods due to teeth generally becoming more brittle as we get older. Perhaps you should consider changing to my dentist …… although he didn’t half make me feel old!!
    Don’t worry about replying to this comment, I have a feeling you may be very busy if you did that this week!! Although, please do reply if I win your Lulu bag!
    Love
    Marian xc

    Hi Julia
    Lulu Guinness was awarded her OBE in 2006.
    I am a handbag fan but I don’t own a Lulu bag, although I do have a “handbag fund” money box helping me save for one.
    Good luck with writing your next book, I have recently started reading the first book in the trilogy and am enjoying it so far.
    I hope all goes well with your blood test results and you enjoy a healthy 2016.

    Hi Julia,
    No luck with the our house I’m afraid. The couple who viewed our house cancelled the second appointment the day they were supposed to have viewed again! We went to see a couple of properties as we were told the couple were thinking of putting an offer in on ours. Up to now we haven’t been to see many houses. Of course l really liked one and it was under budget. Still we’re hoping the couple may get back to us. Fingers crossed!
    It’s funny you mentioned about having to have your crown stuck back, my veneer came off one Christmas after I ate a Cornetto! I didn’t notice straight away but I could feel my tooth felt different. I couldn’t wait to seethe dentist as it was my front tooth. Needless to say I haven’t ate one since.
    I ‘be got a busy week next week as I’ be an appointment with the hygienist and catching up with friends after not seeing people as I’ be getting over the lurgy. Its also our Wedding Anniversary on Tuesday. I can’t believe where the time has gone. It will be 31 years since we tied the knot! We’ll be going out for lunch down Porthcawl. I hope the weather is better next week. The wind and rain has been terrible.
    Hope you get good news regarding the last of your blood test ‘s, I’m sure it will be.
    The Lulu Guinness bag would make a lovely anniversary present so I think the answer is:
    Answer B: 2006.
    I don’t usually enter competition’s but as its a special occasion you never know? I’m keeping my fingers crossed☺
    I’m getting used to my tablet slowly but if there are mistakes you’ll have to forgive me!
    All the best, I’ll be rooting for you and your blood test results,
    Tina x

    I was lucky also to go to House of Elemis and have a facial it’s a fantastic place a true credit to elemis and a real treat you can’t fail to be blown away it’s gorgeous and Laura and her staff I met where just true genuine lovely.

    Hello Julia and a belated Happy New Year, This is a reply to your last two blogs – I had a virus, not quite flu but a close relative, and didn’t do much over New Year. You obviously had a merry albeit speedy Christmas and yes, Chris’s mum does look a good sport. How exciting for Sophie to be starting a new job, it only seems last week that she was a little girl and in the studio with you. As you say this should be the sign of great things to come AND it’s a Leap Year..! I didn’t realise that your medication affected you so much during the evenings, probably because you seem to cram so much into your days, and I truly hope you get the results you want later this month. I find January really difficult; December is fairy lights and colour and this month seems so drab in comparison but bad news about my brother in law and our daughter’s cat going missing last weekend have put my minor moans into perspective. My answer to your generous competition is b.) 2006. Love from Jo x

    Hi Julia good luck with your medical test results. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. I have Lupus and suffer with chronic fatigue all the time. So I know how it feels not to get out much and to feel so tired. I always call my really tired days my Dozey Dormouse Days. As thats how it feels sometimes. Regarding Lulu Guiness I think her OBE was in 2006. You take care Julia and a very Happy New Year to you and yours. You have always been my favourite presenter on QVC. Lots of love and Best Wishes from Rebecca x
