What a lovely time I had last weekend! Lots of work, but also get togethers with my gang. First here’s what’s over on my website newsletter this week –
– bare faced cheek – getting gommaged again – me without make-up…
– video of little Gracie Labrador five months after her stem cells arthritis op – see her improvement!
– a video of crazy spaniels on the mother’s day walk!
– Back to You update with an important question everyone with an illness or who has taken anti-biotics or a caesarean should ask themselves click here
– Read it Write it Sell it blog – book of the week is Brainmaker – perfect for anyone who can’t remember things! And book 4 in the Titan series. more here
– plus read a heart-warming story of how a Medical Detection Dog called Holly, 6 this week, changed the life of Alice – more here. and a peek at Crufts here – and at this weekend’s doggy events! (I’m there Friday 11th in the afternoon, Hall 3 – come see me if you’re quick!)
Mothers Day Fun Saw my own mum on the Friday afternoon with my son Brad, so last weekend it was my turn to be pampered. Got lots of nice gifts including this funny one he made, and a nice Kipling bag in duck egg trim from Lauren. Had lots of fun with her two spaniels – see how big Luna has got now – she was so tiny but she’s sprouted right up! There’s a video on my newsletter blog here.
Gracie Sees her vet Talking of Doggies, Kiran the vet saw my nearly six-year-old arthritic Labrador for her five-month check up this week and said she’s doing well. Then he asked me if I would do a little video of her progress for a presentation he is doing to colleagues soon, ‘because you’re on the TV…’ Well I sort of saw the logic, and what I recorded really shows how Gracie has progressed.

Health Creation begins at home One of the things I’ve been doing lately is genning up on gut-friendly alternatives to dairy (my tum can’t have it) and one of the things is called ‘Kefir’ . You get grains to ferment in a fruit/ginger/lemon water – so far so good – it tastes a bit fizzy too, which it’s supposed to – I think! More about why on the Back to You blog, where you’ll also find Q&A’s with OPI and FAB pro lift girls, as well as Bruce bodyblade!
Bodyblade – guess how old the arm? Wendy Frost was very proud this week, showing off her arm on the Bodyblade QVC group on Facebook! Goodness me, at 61 that’s impressive! So is the Bodyblade – get it here
Congrats to James Murden and wife Charlotte for the arrival of their cute little baby George – ahhh!
Talking of Babies… my own niece is about to drop soon – great niece number two coming along! Abi grace in her fairy outfit will be well-chuffed to have a sister!
Inside the QVC Cafe This is our canteen at work – deserted on a weekend of course. The desserts hadn’t deserted but none were suitable for me with my Dairy thang. Nice to have a between-shows catch up though.
Pregnancy Craving Names…? my Brad and Lauren would have been called ‘egg and chips’ or ‘banana and custard.’ Haha! What were yours? Answer in a comment below.
Facebook Funny Look at this poodle! How funny. He was just sitting in the car looking ahead, enjoying the late afternoon rays of sunshine, car-sitting, bless him!
Watch Theatre or film? Or how about both on the same day? First I went with a friend to see Grease at Epsom Playhouse by the Epsom Players (amateur dramatics) and found it good fun, albeit a bit lacking in lustre.
But the voices were pretty good, it was well-choreographed and staged. If you can, catch it before it ends this weekend. Here’s the trailer.
But London Has Fallen was blessed with really high-end, tentpole type cinematography, and I was glad I saw it at the cinema this week. Mainly for Gerard Butler… Some super acting – watch out for one of the most impressive performances by a new face I didn’t know at the end, playing Jax. Typical plot, and a bit ‘Call of Duty’ – computer game with endless shoot outs – but I was glad I saw it. I would give it about 8 out of ten, mainly enhanced because of the acting and Gerard Butler…
QVC this week - here’s a quick sneaky of a super Saturday and Sunday on QVC UK.
Then join Axel Ruth for a supersized Flora Mare #TSV Monday all day
Together bring us a fabulous top on Tuesday 15th
And Tuesday night at midnight I launch a brand-new ceramic straightening brush – the Dafni – looks really interesting!
Finally casting ahead with a sneaky peek, next Friday it’ll be time to bring the next Vionics - the Lana toe post sandal – I have a show in the evening, assuming it lasts!
Anyway I finally managed to write a shorter QVC blog – but check out my newsletter one on my website if you’d like more! Or the Back to You one there… or the book blog! One day I’ll get the next book finished instead of doing blogs! haha!
Have a great week.
PS my novels and non-fiction on my bookshelf! Most still in paperback online – very proud!
