Apologies for having you wait an extra week for my second piece of good news, following Sophie finally completing her flat purchase. Here it is… the cover of my new book, It’s Never Too Late To Say…, the final book in the Liberty Sands trilogy. Will Holly find her happy ever after? Good question! The manuscript (or should I say most of it) went over to my copy editor on Monday, so we are still on course for publication at the end of May/beginning of June. It’s funny, I’ve built up quite a relationship with Holly and the rest of the characters in the books so it will be a little weird saying goodbye to them. I hope you like the cover and the book – more information on how to pre-order will be on www.juliarobertsbooks.co.uk soon.
Well, moving in day for Sophie edges closer as her sofa, chair and bed base are being delivered on Monday. All she really needs now are curtains and she will be good to go. I can’t show you the picture of her moving-in present this week as I haven’t given it to her yet – it’s been a bit of a hectic week. We’re going over tomorrow to clean the carpets with my Vax machine and steam clean the kitchen with my H2O steam mop. Speaking of kitchens, I need to order her some Cook’s Essentials saucepans – so much to remember at the moment!
My Focus on Fashion this week has to be the 16th Anniversary shows for Michele Hope. I presented Michele’s first ever show on QVC so it’s a shame that I’m not doing any of the anniversary shows. Initially she only brought us knitwear – I wonder if any of you still have any of the original pieces? The range has blossomed over the years of course with lots of you loving the stretch lace. There will be plenty of event pricing and here are just a few styles you might like to take a look at in advance of the shows. First we have a sleeveless two piece in stretch rose lace. It’s available in a choice of five colours – my favourites are the lime and royal blue. There is a matching dip back lace cardigan in the same five colour choices. One of my favourite pieces is the boucle hologram shrug (it’s a long shrug at 26 inches in length), which comes in ivory or navy (my preferred choice). There are also some old favourites featuring like this textured cardigan. I have it in purple but it comes in your choice of twelve shades. It’s a great year round layering piece. Happy Anniversary Michele – I hope they make you a gluten-free cake!!!
Staying with fashion, today’s Fashion on Friday is Together. I have several of their tops and may well add a couple more today. I hope you will be able to join Jenny and I at 5pm. I’m also on at 2pm with Ultrasun, my preferred choice of sun protection, and 4pm with Links of London – hopefully the TSV will still be around. After today I’m not on air again until next Friday – I’m working Thursday but behind the scenes, unless somebody goes sick.
I have a rather important football match to attend at Wembley on Sunday – if you’re a neutral please turn into a Crystal Palace fan for the day… Come On You Eagles!
You will want to check my blog next week as I’m going to be running a competition to coincide with Jewellery Month in May – more details next week.
I’ll leave you with my yoga cat calendar pose for April… I reckon I could manage that but I’m not sure about Wilfie or Milo!!!
Have a great weekend
