An athletic triumph, and cleaning up with the Shark


I hope all’s well, as always – I had the pleasure of going to the the athletics held at the London Stadium last Saturday with Ali and Jack and it was certainly a night to remember! With British hero Mo Farrah’s brave silver medal, the anguish of seeing the great Usain Bolt pull up injured and the jubilation of seeing the 4 x 100m relay girls and boys bring home silver and gold medals respectively! Amazing! Such a wonderful atmosphere.

Back at home our builders are cracking on at a world record pace and I must say whilst they are very neat and tidy – it’s just not possible to do what they have to do and not generate a lot of sand and dust debris. I’ve created a fenced pathway around the works for Toby and Ellie, so they can get through to the back garden, but they still bring in a lot of sand and dust back into the house on their shaggy feet.

So receiving a sample of our Today’s Special Value for this Sunday (20th August) was perfect timing!

It’s the Shark Rocket Complete with ‘DuoClean’ – this makes it ideal for use on carpets, with it’s soft brushroll pulling in larger debris combined with the deeper-reaching bristle brush that concentrates on smaller particles. It was highly effective at lifting trodden-in sandy deposits from our carpets and has helped greatly in keeping on top of the building dirt generally. I also used it with the included attachments for cleaning my car carpets, which have also taken a bit of a bashing with so much mess on the driveway, no matter how many times the boys sweep it down!

It is a powerful corded bagless vacuum and breaks down for storage or handheld use with simple, easy-to-operate switches. Apologies for the scruffy state of the doorway – it’s being demolished soon!

I’ll be launching this latest version of our best-selling Shark Rocket with cleaning expert Phil Parker at midnight this Saturday – I hope you can join us as Phil puts this great vacuum through it’s paces.

On Sunday I’ve a very busy four hours starting with a two-hour special at 6pm, celebrating 22 years of Butler & Wilson Fashion Jewellery on QVC with Simon Wilson himself – there’s bound to be some great offers and sparkle is guaranteed! Later at 11pm, I’m with one of my favourite beauty guests Abi Cleeve who now has her own anti-ageing Skinsense range. And as Abi herself puts it “who wouldn’t want beautiful skin, all day, every day?” Abi has kindly sent through some samples for Mrs F to trial – I may just have to try it for myself too 😉 I love Abi’s straight-talking, honest approach and early results suggest many of you do too!

Lastly, I like to include wildlife photos when I can and I took this photo whilst on holiday in Spain last month – well he or she is no Jiminy Cricket!

Until next time stay jubilant and DuoClean…!
