So it’s week two of Diet Chef and I woke up on Monday morning fully expecting NOT to have lost any weight. But in the end I weighed again and I haven’t lost any weight. But I know why. I went off plan last Sunday when Austen came to London to visit and also on Beauty Bash day. So it’s my own fault. But I’m not downhearted. In fact I’m the opposite: I’m more resolute
On Saturday Austen and I went to the movies to see the outrageous and hilarious WOLF OF WALL STREET starring Leonardo di Caprio. I quickly snapped my pack of popcorn and it’s a wonder I didn’t choke on them in the movie theatre because I warn you now, the film is an 18 certificate and not, repeat NOT for the faint hearted because of the very graphic content throughout. That said, the popcorn was delicious and it was a surprise that I resisted the MEGA BUCKET of sweet popcorn I usually buy at the tills.
Last Thursday I went to the QVC Beauty Bash. It was a real fun day with Alison Young, Debs Flint, Julia Roberts (who I also happen to share a dressing room with) & Miceal Murphy. I went to visit as many beauty brands as I could, however I didn’t get that far because I was stopped by so many lovely QVC customers for a chat. Thanks to Margaret Devlin from Edinburgh and her niece, Marcia and her mum Winnie from London, the gorgeous Jan Simmons (from Streetly, near me in Brum) and her pal Angie Beckett (who’s originally from Bartley Green, where I was brought up), Jacqui and her daughter Sophie from Southampton and so many more. It was a real pleasure. Jump onto my Facebook page to see all the photos I took that day and don’t forget to LIKE the page too so you can come back and say HI. Were you there? Did you pick yourself up anything nice from our Beauty Weekend?
On Sunday Austen and I went out for a stroll around the Red House Park and fed the ducks and geese. Bracing and cold but lovely. Aren’t we lucky we haven’t had any snow yet? I remember this time last year it was dreadful!
This weekend I went back to Brum for the first time in about two weeks. It was wonderful to chill with The Hubz, Austen. We tested out the forthcoming Miele S8 Cyclinder vacuum cleaner which is a Today's Special Value next Monday 3rd February. We zoomed around the house with it. The power is incredible (2200W of it), we cleaned all manner of corners, under the kitchen units, all the skirting boards (the one behind the bed in the master bedroom is a haven for dust!) and our curtains with the special tools that came with the cleaner.
