THANK YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN!!
Well what can I say folks? You are such a bunch of lovely encouraging and uplifting individuals! All your comments and amazing compliments are so welcome. I was floating around on cloud nine reading them.
Well I thought it was time to drop you all a wee line again. I probably should've mentioned that I was going to be off for a couple weeks but I'll be back at QVC headquarters on Saturday, so do tune in. Especially any Bare Escentuals fans out there!!
So what have I been up to during my time out? Yes indeed you've guessed it… lots of Zumba!! Sorry if I sound like a stuck record but I am absolutely smitten. I did however miss a couple of classes last week. I had the most spectacular trip in the history of falling down – like a pack of cards!!
A spectacular trip!
It's ok, as by some miracle I didn't really hurt myself (my ego mainly!!) thank goodness! But it really was incredible. I met the lovely Carla (who guests our Tignanello handbag shows) for lunch. I don't know if you know, but she is also a Zumba instructor and hugely responsible for my addiction.
Anyway, after a good catch up I went to powder my nose as they say. Upon my return, I was momentarily distracted, resulting in me going flying and crashing down in rather elaborate fashion on my behind with both legs attempting to do the splits in mid-air!!!
The most worrying factor is that I thought I was going to have to call an ambulance for the lady Carla due to her mass hysterics (only after she realised I was ok mind you). She said it was the most spectacular fall she'd ever seen. It actually felt a bit pathetic.
I imagine that if it had been an audition where the director had said "okay Anne, I want you to come down the stairs, look quickly to your right and then drop to the floor" I would have failed miserably on the grounds of over-acting!! I have promised Carla that the next time we're on air together I will mention it. Then you will be able to tell just how funny she found the whole thing. Don't think she's stopped laughing yet!!!
Apart from that it's business as usual "Chez Dawson". Off to Italy in a couple weeks, but only for a few days. We have quite a large roof terrace which unfortunately has taken a bit of battering recently due to severe storms. So going to check out the damage, (and squeeze in a few delicious meals as well!!)
Linda from Glasgow, thanks for your recent post and comments. Keep yer chin up hen with the builders. So know what it's like, but yes indeed my love, well worth it in the end. We finished all the main work about a year ago and I'm delighted. Just got the outside front to re-do when funds allow.
Take care everyone – look forward to hearing from you. You are all a real inspiration.
