Well one of my highlights on air over the past week has been being back on with Ralph from Honora – in the pic you can see the Today's Special Value bracelet set, which I'd been wearing in the cream colour for a few days prior – it sold out early in the day!
Ralph stayed on afterwards to chat to me about life, love and relationships, and he was most amused to see some of your comments left on my Facebook account – many people saying how they loved his jewellery but more saying how they loved him! Lol. He's just a lovely guy and his jewellery's mahhvellous dahlink!
Also managed to catch up with a friend of mine, Kevin the composer, at the annual Wotton Classic Car fest at the local village fete. If you're a regular, you may recall the short video about it on my blog this time last year! I just love classic cars – I'd get one if I could decide how to look after it, and if my garage wasn't so full of rubbish that I could store it in there!
Looking at the above it'd probably be the 'gangster-like' American one. The dashboards are so plain and uncluttered – how different from today! No headrests either – and I know the suspension would leave a lot to be desired! But they make me smile to look at them, so maybe one day! In fact, I'm getting a new car this week, specifically because of the suspension in my B class Merc not being up to scratch' so maybe I'll stay just looking at them!
This week I finally got my manuscript off to the Romantic Novelists' Association New Writers' Scheme. It's this thick! All my own work – well, with a little guidance from some learned friends and several courses and conferences over the last two years! I finally worked out how my heroine Sadie gets together with the hero Mac, and live happily ever after.
If only real life were like that eh! Real life is more like 'live happily ever after apart from several ups and downs and a lot of hard work not forgetting compromise and dedication'! lol. Now I just have to wait a month or two to hear from the kind 'reader' whom they give it to, to do the critique – exciting tho' – have heard great things about their service. Then I change it and resubmit it – and possibly start sending it out to publishers (Mills & Boon first, of course).
In my own real life, I continue to stay good pals with Nigel – we always work well as friends – including his birthday soon for which I've booked that wakeboarding voucher. Oooo – am nervous about that – never done it before. My last experience of trying to skim across water was attempting to waterski off the back of a jetski in Gambia.
Never got much more than shoulder-height out of the water, so THAT didn't work! Any tips for how to do it? If so let me know – soon! Maybe the 'cable' they use to tow us round the lake on Sunday will be a more effective way of getting me up and running. Well, up and wakeboarding… Will let you know next week!
P.S. Watch out for a new jewellery range I'm premiering on Friday – Orit Schatzman as part of the Jovella Israeli jewellery event. I'm standing in for Catherine who's still a bit poorly, so get well soon to her – leave her a message on her blog if you can.
I'm also now doing Tuesday night at midnight, with a new lingerie range – so join me for that too if you can!
