Lucy's birthday cake - with 14 eggs

Time for a new Seasonal Sound competition!

545

Hello,

I’m just sitting here debating whether to put the heating on or not, as from my relaxed position I can still see the sunshine colouring the leaves, although there is a definite nip in the air! Autumn is finally here, but then we’ve been celebrating Christmas since Friday on QVC! : )

Thanks very much as always for your responses to last month’s blog, and also to all those of you who donated so generously to our Breast Cancer Care fundraising evening. As you’re probably aware we made an enormous sum of money for the charity, and I was so pleased to yet again be a part of it.  Jackie and Miceal did a sterling job of presenting the main show, and Chloe and Will provided fabulous support on the donation lines and with all the social media. I had the chance to meet some really wonderful and brave women, and we were all in agreement that Breast Cancer Care can, and do make all the difference to people in our situation.

It was also a real treat to see so many of our guests there, and we are indebted to them for their generosity in providing us with so many fabulous products for you to purchase. I was thrilled to know that once again the ‘I Hope’ pendant and ring sold out, so maybe I will have to come up with a new design for next year’s fundraiser?!

And while on the subject of designs, I am delighted to be able to tell you that we finally have a set of the Diamonique wedding jewellery I designed for my special day – earrings and necklace – as a prize for you!  I’ve set a simple competition for you at the end of this blog.  The value of the set is £142 and I hope that it’s something that would make someone somewhere very happy. : )

I’ve had plenty of reasons to smile over the last few weeks – as my back felt so much better, we were able to enjoy one of our fabulous wedding presents. QVC’s delightful Northern Nights guest Susie Adams, and her husband Richard, treated us to a Champagne Tea at the Wolseley Piccadilly! The Wolseley is such a beautiful old building which began its life as a car showroom for Wolseley Motors, and then as a branch of Barclays Bank between 1927 and 1999.  This picture was taken inside the restaurant and the atmosphere was absolutely splendid! I would highly recommend it as a treat : ) Thank you Susie and Richard ❤

With Colin on our night outWe decided to make a night of it, and got last-minute tickets to see the show ‘Sinatra – The Man and His Music’ at the London Palladium afterwards. The Sinatra show was also fabulous too.  A really innovative production involving high-tech multi-media screens that placed Frank right there on stage alongside a 24-piece orchestra and a troupe of great dancers. There wasn’t one song I didn’t recognise, and the orchestra were superb. It was as though Ol’ Blue Eyes was truly back with us – in voice, image and spirit if not in person.

We were amongst the last to leave and just as we headed towards the exit, two lovely ladies – Lauren and Melissa – came over to speak to us. They were both avid QVC and Sinatra fans, so we had a lot in common. It’s so nice when I get the chance to meet you, and we can have a chat – a great end to a great night. We did think about stopping for a burger on the way home, but had eaten so many delicious sandwiches, scones and cakes we had no room even for a bag of chips! : )

With Lauren and Melissa at the Palladium

Whilst on the subject of cake, I spent last Friday putting together a rather large Victoria Sandwich cake for my daughter Lucy, as her man Simon had planned a surprise party for her 30th birthday!  Where have the years gone? Now she’s all grown up with a baby of her own, and Honey was joined on this occasion by all Lucy’s friends who have babies much the same age. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many tiny babies together in one place at one time!

Honey in her party frockThey were all remarkably well behaved and I got plenty of cuddles with as many of them as I could : ). Luckily Jack and Sam were also able to come, along with my sister Jenny and Linda, Ros and Chris, and many more friends and close family.  It was a really fabulous afternoon and evening, and there were plenty of us including six-year-old Henry, throwing a few shapes on the dance floor that night!

Of course there have been plenty of reasons to celebrate at work too, as Christmas has officially begun, and we have got some great shows coming up over the next few months. I’m back tonight with Diamonique at 9pm, and in that hour you can see our beautiful Christmas ring set with a stunning simulated sea green diamond, and surrounded in the halo design, with clear stones. It comes in its very own Christmas packaging, and is a steal at under £23.

Then at midnight I will have a terrific TSV from one of your favourite footwear brands, Skechers! Never mind shoes and boots, our TSV is a beautifully constructed comfortable, truly warm and wearable, snuggly pair of slippers! Complete with a soft, knitted outer and faux fur inside, I can’t wait to slip my feet inside them on Thursday – hope you can cosy up with me!

Skechers BOBSIn my Haven T-shirtAnd so to our competition! I am returning to our Seasonal Sound theme, so bear in mind the time of year, and listen carefully, and I will look forward with interest to hearing what you think this noise is! : ) The prize as already mentioned is  the Diamonique necklace and earrings (pictured above), but added to that is this T-shirt, designed by Savannah Miller, that I signed and wore to raise funds and awareness for The Haven.

In case you didn’t see last month’s blog, The Haven offer anyone with a diagnosis of breast cancer a sanctuary. Complementary therapies, support, advice and understanding are there for those of us who need it, and they were a huge help to me in the early days. I hope if you win it you’ll wear it with pride.

Just listen to the sound clip below, and then write in the comments what you think it could be! You will have until midday on Thursday 22nd October to enter, and then a winner will be randomly selected. Don’t forget to add your email address in the field below (it won’t be published).

Good luck!

    Hello Ali, It certainly is a tad chilly, I wore gloves this morning for the first time since March. I have my own central heating system so I don’t mind a cool home – especially in the middle of the night when the duvet is flung aside and I make my way to the bathroom to sit on the tiled floor to cool down… However, Colin is starting to mention the “big duvet” and so it’s only a matter of time before my beloved Northern Nights 1/2 and 1/2 one has to be packed away until next Spring. I’m so glad your back feels better especially as you’ve had some lovely events to attend. What an imaginative wedding gift and to follow it with an evening with Frank – bliss. You looked absolutely beautiful and lace really suits you. 1985 was obviously a quality year with the births of your Lucy and my Rebecca and how lovely to be surrounded by lots of babies at her party. I’m giving a sort of party on 24th for our house because it’ll be 50 years that weekend since my parents moved in and even though we had two homes of our own before they sold her to us I always thought of her as my home. I’m planning a new orchard at the top of the garden, starting with five trees to mark the number of decades. Honey looks gorgeous and your Christmas will be truly magical. Finally, I think the answer to your competition is someone cutting into a pumpkin. Love from Jo x

    Ooh er Alison..I have about seven ideas for the competition sound….will ponder my favourite and hopefully remember to include it on the end of the blog!
    So another busy time for you; the show sounds fabulous and what a great pressure idea the afternoon tea was..sandwiches taste so much nicer when someone else makes them, especially if they’re posh ones! The cake looked amazing, I am glad a great time was had by all.
    So, nearly half term, one week to go! We were supposed to be packing up and moving into our new build, ironically next to the school I have just left, but there are major problems with the electrics and we cannot move until at least January.. The kids have been completely thrown, autistic children like routine and hate change and all the hard work staff have done to prepare them for the move next week have gone to pot. I love my new job..I have 8 year 7 students in my car…my daytime children who are all very different, extremely hard work but who make my day. I have just been told that as I am new I have to do a solo at the talent show…that fills me with complete and utter dread… I can’t sing, ballroom dance or play an instrument and I don’t have enough time to decorate a cake..the only thing I can do that is quick is that I can make a piping bag out of a triangle shape of parchment paper! My daughter has found her Ocarena…a small blowey thing that sounds like a recorder..I may have to learn ‘we Wish You A Merry Christmas’! As if I don’t have enough to do…
    Mum been poorly..she has had a sudden increase in her pre epileptic episodes …her brain surgery left her with dementia and epilepsy so we are waiting for blood test results and an appointment at Kings College Hospital with her consultant. How’s your Christmas shopping going? Shopping trip to Milton Keynes is at the end of November but I have found a great Christmas Shopping app which is so addictive. I have put in everyone’s names, brought presided, gift ideas and budget plus you can even mark them as wrapped. I love it!!!
    Well my noise choice is shovelling coal for a fire into a bucket!
    Have a great week love Mary

    Hello dear Ali,

    So lovely to read your new blog and to say I absolutely 100% agree with you regarding the very amazing Frank Sinatra show, I was lucky enough to be taken to see it by my lovely Son and Daughter-in-Law for my birthday in August, and like you I felt that the man himself was up there on stage, and I have to admit to shedding a tear at the end,he really is a legend isn’t he?

    I think that the sound is scraping out a pumpkin, the jewellery is very beautiful and very good luck to the winner.

    Take good care of yourself and Colin.

    Love Gwen.

    Hi Ali,

    I think the sound is cut branches/twigs being fed into a shredder.

    Love the cake you made for Lucy. Little Honey is so gorgeous! You’ll have a wonderful Christmas with her this year. Children and babies make Christmas time extra special and so much more fun – wonderful.

    Well done with all the fundraising. Unfortunately, my husband’s close friend is fighting a battle against cancer. He’s refused treatment and is handling it his way. He’s being so very brave, it’s a heartbreaking time to say the least.

    We have just arrived home from beautiful Santa Eulalia. The weather was beautiful. It was so relaxing and peaceful, and to arrive home to beautiful weather has been a real bonus. While we made our way to our seat in our favourite cafe in Santa Eulalia my husband said “I know that lady’s face”, it was Julia Somerville! I know she’s a lot older than you, but she doesn’t half remind me of you, and like you she always looks smart and stylish.

    Hope your back pain has eased.

    Best wishes to all in Ali’s army. Hope Alpa and Una are keeping well.

    Love Sue Radford xx

    As it is a seasonal sound, my guess is that it is to do with Halloween, so I am going with slicing the top off a pumpkin to make a lantern.

My niece Lisa’s baby Charlie is nearly nine months now and has discovered how to move!! He is so quick and into everything. You can’t take your eyes off him for a minute. Lisa certainly has her hands full now! Your little Honey Bea is gorgeous. It’s lovely to see photos of her on your blog and also when you are on air. I’m so glad your back is a lot better. I myself suffer from sciatica and when it flares up it is agony! Anyway bye for now and look forward to your next blog. PS I think the sound is walking through Autumn leaves. Love Sue xx

It must have been a bit of a shock to you to be told you’re diabetic, but it sounds as though you’re doing everything right. I’m sure my mum has stayed in Cleobury Mortimer, and it was lovely. I hope that if you are there for your birthday it will stay warm enough for you to have a BBQ! I’ve got washing out on the line today, and hoping that will dry :) Good luck with the competition, and thanks for your guess. I hope your partner’s arm is OK now too!

I’ll have to remember that one :) I’ve just changed my Kelly Hoppen throw back to the thicker one, and my Colin can’t wait for the Cozee Home bedding to go on – talking of which I ordered the TSV this morning!! How lovely for you to actually now own your original family home. Definitely worth celebrating, and I love the idea of you planting five trees to mark the decades. Honey is truly gorgeous, and yes I too am very much looking forward to Christmas. Take care, and thanks for writing to me – Love Ali xx

    Hi Mary lovely to hear from you, thanks for taking part in a competition. I’ll be putting all the correct entries into a draw and we will know by Thursday! I am sorry to hear that you can’t move into your new classroom until at least January. I’m sure that it is difficult for the children, but they are lucky to have you. Don’t worry too much about the talent show, what about reading a funny poem? It will make the children laugh, and is easy for you to do. I was very sorry to know that your mum has been poorly, and I do hope that her blood test results will ease your fears. I like you have been doing a great deal of my Christmas shopping online, mainly from QVC! Still a lot to go then. Take care and enjoy the rest of the week, Love Ali xx

What you can’t see in the photograph is that the flowers are held in place with ribbons that are linked into the side of the cake. Yes you’re right that was a lovely wedding gift from Susie and her husband Richard. We felt very spoiled :) yes I am definitely looking forward to Christmas as is Colin, and having baby Honey with us will make it even more special.

How incredibly brave, but how difficult for all those of you who love him.. I wish you all the strength it will take to get through this sad time… Santa Eulalia is somewhere I have never been, but I would love to visit! How funny you bumped into Julia Somerville – I used to know her years ago, and a few other folk have said I am like her, which is a compliment :) My pain has definitely eased but am not without a voice and a very sore throat :( Six month check up tomorrow, so hoping to feel better for that.

    Dearest Ali,

    Glad that your back felt better enough for you to enjoy both your champagne tea and Sinatra. It looks like Lucy’s special day was celebrated in style and with a fabulous birthday cake :) Honey is even more beautiful and so very sweet.

    I’m sorry for not writing properly for some time. I’m afraid I’ve been much worse. I’ve had to go out more this year to attend appointments etc. Having to be out and about for entire days at a time exacerbated my symptoms to such an extent, I was physically unable to do the most simple of things. This is the effect of accumulated exertion when your body can not recover from exertion and it’s been much more severe. The one thing that’s happened is I’ve lost an alarming amount of weight. Apart from multiple food intolerances, grocery shopping in any form was out of the question.

    There was no one to turn to and nowhere to go to for help and that has not changed. The inability to do ordinary things, let alone anything else is a real problem. This is why I went to the council for help in the first place. I did make a complaint to the Ombudsman about the investigation of the case. Once again they made it clear that they support the council, that they do not want to know otherwise and that the case is closed. So, that’s it then! It’s only now that the council have stopped invoicing me for a service they haven’t provided.

    I still can not get medical treatment for anything that can be treated or needs treatment. These things are all increasing in severity as no one will help. I find it very hard to be upright for any length of time; not only do I feel like I’m going to blackout but also being upright and the slightest exertion causes excessive pressure on my heart. This is something that can be treated but my consultant said he will look at it ‘at the end if nothing else helps’ Nothing else is being looked at! The excessive pressure on my heart is something that could have been treated a few years ago and even now continues to be ignored. I still don’t know why I’m having blackouts and he thinks they are just going to stop! I also have an fractured scapula that was not treated properly and has caused on going problems with my shoulder and back. Two years ago, I found out that I need to see an orthopaedic consultant about my spine. The slightest movement makes it so much worse and it has an impact on my mobility. Despite my best efforts, nothing is being done about it. Lack of sleep simply makes everything much more difficult.

    At the end of July, I went to stay with someone I’ve known since I was little. She worked for my parents for a long time and then came here later on, after I did. She thought a change of scenery might do me good. I had my doubts about going to stay and it was not a good idea. She was not ok with me and simply went from bad to worse! I wanted to come home at the first sign of it but there wasn’t a straightforward way to come back on my own. I had to wait until it was convenient for her to drop me off.

    Recently something else has happened, which has been very worrying. All I can do is hope that it will be ok.

    Thank you for sharing your fairy tale wedding, and very special honeymoon travel blogs. All your photos are fabulous and it’s lovely to see you looking so very happy and content.

    Love to Una, Debz, Jilly and Annie, Jo, Sue, Elaine, Janet and all in Ali’s Army x

    Take care,
    Lots of Love, Alpa xxx

    P.S. I think the answer to your competition is a pumpkin being carved.

    My dear Alpa, I was hoping very much to hear from you, but I was so sorry to read about all that you have still having to cope with… I so wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all better for you. TheOmbudsman was the only way forward I felt, unless you write directly to your local health authority. Somebody somewhere surely has to listen! What ever it is tho that is currently worrying you please I am praying will sort itself. You certainly don’t need anything else to contend with. I fully appreciate how tired you must be with all this, but try not to give up hope… You are a lot stronger than you think I am certain. Sending you a big hug, and I know that others on the blog will join me in wishing you well, and hoping things will improve. With love, Ali xx

    Sheila thank you for your guess for our competition, which was pretty close to the correct answer! So glad you enjoyed the photographs of Honey, and very many congratulations on your news. How wonderful for you to be a nanny again, and to know that you have another grandson on the way. I wish you all the very best. With love Ali x
