Firstly, I'm so pleased (and relieved) to say Dad's operation was a great success. He's up, moving around already, although he's under strict instructions to take things easy. I won't take him rock climbing with the kids just yet!
He's been well looked after by the NHS and tells me the food has been fabulous (like father, like son, food is very important to us!) and that's saying something because Dad is a dab hand in the kitchen. His garlic and onion potatoes are out of this world!
I thought I'd share this recent snap (pictured above) I took when out for a stroll. I love being near water. My absolute passion is the sea and if able to, I'll spend hours treading the shore, skimming the occasional stone into the waves.
I have the utmost respect for the sea, even more so since I nearly lost my life to it when I was 11 years of age. If Dad hadn't been there to save me (our dog Molly was on hand too!) I'm pretty certain I wouldn't be writing this blog today. It sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it. I'll spare the details but it was a truly terrifying experience.
Now, back to the photo, I'm no bird expert, but in the background that's definitely a goose! However, the bird in the foreground baffles me… any ideas? Another species of goose perhaps? Maybe you can help. Anyway, they both loved the food we took along for them!
So it's a busy weekend ahead at QVC with our Festival of Beauty event. I'm on-air Saturday 28th April with ' Festival of Beauty ' at 4pm, then Ultrasun at 7pm and L'Occitane at 9pm. I'm back on Sunday with Nails Inc at 9pm.
Then… big fanfare… Honora Pearls is back! I'm launching their new TSV, Sunday night, at midnight!
Hope you can join me.
Take care and see you soon
