Lulu, Dale and Gill

Seeing Lulu live in concert, plus the Heys TSV!


I hope all’s well, as always, and I wondered if you managed to join us last Saturday for our first ever full day of gardening and would love to hear what you thought about our brand new garden sets, if you did. I couldn’t help myself and ordered the Lounger Today’s Special Value.

Last week Mrs F and I were lucky enough to be invited to see the amazing Lulu in concert! We went along with Jill Franks and Gill (the lady responsible for Lulu’s Timebomb) and their respective husbands. We enjoyed a fantastic night and Lulu was simply amazing, her energy levels and the power of her voice were outstanding. Throughout the very entertaining evening, Lulu recalled memories and stories from her amazing 50+ year career and thoroughly captivated her audience from start to finish.


During the interval, we were invited back to her dressing room to say hi and managed to grab a quick picture. If you’re wondering why I look so red in the face it’s because I was clapping for so long! I looked far worse after the encore!! Lulu was joined on stage by special guests (not in the programme) so I won’t name incase you’re going to one of her tour shows, needless to say they were very warmly received. If you are able to get tickets for Lulu’s nationwide tour I can thoroughly recommend it.

Lulu is touring the length and breadth of the country right now and popping into the Q on Wednesday 23rd to present her Time Bomb Today’s Special Value offer.

As Lulu is clocking up the miles this month, I’m sure she has plenty of quality luggage. Well it just so happens that this Wednesday at midnight I’ll be launching Thursday’s Today’s Special Value offer from quality Canadian luggage brand, Heys.

Back by popular demand we have their Helios 3 piece luggage set with Duraflex technology. The three cases are large, medium and cabin-sized and have top quality wheels, retracting handles and TSA combination locks. They are extremely light yet very durable due in the main to their duraflex construction. This year we are offering a new green colour option in addition to the grey, blue, black, purple and red. I’ve attached a quick video of me unpacking the Today’s Special Value, giving a quick look at some of the many features. Hope you can join me at midnight Wednesday for more.

Until next time, stay singing and well packed!
