Sorry I didn't blog last week but I decided to grab a few days away before a very hectic end of September and October. We managed to get a very 'affordable' charter flight to Spain so packed our hand luggage and went for a week of sunshine after the dismal summer we've endured here!
Although I wasn't on air, I knew that Daniel was demonstrating the Abdoer Twist so I turned on the TV to see how he was doing – he has been having some physio on his knee lately so it's a great machine for him to be able to work his abs. Well it sold out so I guess you guys like the machine too!
Later in the evening I rang home to tell him we had watched and he said, "Did you see Sophie?" Puzzled, I said no, and he told me to turn on the TV cos she was on 'again'! It turns out that there was no model booked for the later airings of the Today's Special Value which was an epilator. As Sophie uses one at home she was apparently the perfect 'stand-in'. It was a bit weird – I wasn't on QVC but both my children were… do you think they are after my job??
We didn't really watch much TV after that – after all, we can do that at home. It's just lovely to be able to relax in the sunshine and look out to the sparkling sea and all the vessels of various sizes close in or far away on the horizon and imagine where they are en route to, and what cargo they may be carrying.
A couple of days before we came home a beautiful sailing yacht came into the bay and, rather than sailing past, it seemed to be sailing up and down almost as though it was looking for something. That went on all day, which was a bit strange. Then the next day it was back and so was a bright red salvage vessel! This needed closer investigation with the binoculars. There were loads of people standing on the deck of the yacht, but I couldn't really make out what they were doing.
It transpires that they were shooting some scenes from the latest Bruce Willis movie, apparently about an American boy going missing while on holiday with his parents in Spain. So I'm wondering, were they pointing the cameras into shore when some weird woman in a lavender sundress was checking them out with her binoculars? Maybe there will be another Julia Roberts in a Hollywood movie… albeit a 'bit' part!!!! Have any of you ever seen yourselves in the background of a film or TV show?
Well, I'm back to work and raring to go for a very busy few weeks. We have our Beauty Day on Sunday – watch out for the maximum Easy Pays – and then a Pilates TSV Monday midnight and into Tuesday. Want to get yourself looking and feeling good by Christmas then give it a go, it has really helped me.
