Ok. So a picture of my lovely niece Louise, and a photo of some hyacinths (below)!! What's the connection? Well let's describe them both a bit and give you a little background.
The lovely Louise is my pride and joy. Firstly, this is Louise at her recent graduation. She recently got her Masters degree in Human Resources.
It's funny actually because two of my boys saw the photos on Facebook and one gave her the thumbs up as it were, and the other scratched his head wondering why she was putting up photos of herself when she graduated with her degree 11 years ago.
He didn't realise that this was a recent distinct event!! He was very quick to add though that she's obviously looking good as he couldn't tell the difference between a photo we have up on the wall at home of 'the first time round', and this one.
I reckon personally it's all those great QVC products she gets off her Auntie Anne. She has done amazingly well though.
Her's was the wedding of the year which took place last October that I've been going on about (I know I've still got to sort some photos out for you – I will! Watch this space!!)
We are very very very close!! Sadly her mum (my sister) died when she had just had her eighteenth birthday and as an only child we just became incredibly close. I was thrilled to be sitting at the top table with her dad at the wedding as a kind of proxy "mother-of-the-bride". What a great day!!
Anyway, next up my hyacinths!!
Well this photo was taken less than 2 weeks after one of the most fabulous ladies behind the scenes here at QVC, the lovely Teeny, gave me the plant when we met for afternoon tea one day. I can't believe they're looking so great!! Me, growing plants? This is a woman who can barely grow her own hair!!
So go on then, what's the connection?
Answer: I'm extremely proud of both of them :)!!
Lots of love
