A cracking day at Wimbledon, plus a brilliant Amazon offer!



Wow, as I write this the temperatures are soaring here in London. It has been so hot and dry this last week. How has it been where you are? My lawn looks more like straw than grass!

Speaking of lush, green lawns I’ve been loving this year’s Wimbledon tennis. I was lucky enough to receive tickets in the public ballot and had a simply fabulous day out. We were fortunate to see Heather Watson, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray play on centre court. The atmosphere was electric. Oh and of course we devoured plenty of strawberries… it had to be done!

The weather was so hot but we were well prepared for the day with Ultrasun and plenty of water to hand to last the day.

I planned on taking lots of photos to share with you but only took the one! I was simply wrapped up in the atmosphere of the day. Oops!

I’m back at QVC now and am catching the tennis when I can.

Looking ahead – I have some superb shows coming up this week including Tan-Luxe on Saturday 15th July at 9pm then a few hours later I’ll be launching the most incredible Today’s Special Value offer!

At 12 midnight I’m in the company of Lee Hohbein with the brilliant Amazon Fire HD 8 16GB tablet.

This is an all new Fire HD tablet with up to 12 hours battery life and vibrant 8″ HD display. We’ve included some fantastic added value as well. All will be revealed this Saturday at midnight!

I hope you can join us.

See you soon.

    Hi Charlie,
    I’m in Yorkshire and it’s very hot here also. I too was lucky enough to go to Wimbledon last week. My friend got tickets in the ballot we were on Centre Court and saw Johanna Konta,Andy Murray and my favourite Rafael Nadal …. swoon! We were still pinching ourselves the next day! It was a fabulous day. Looking at your photo we were sat on the opposite side of the court. As I type I’m watching Rafa struggling to stay in the tournament against Gilles Muller.
    I’ll be interested to see the new Fire tablet at the
    weekend it could make a good present for an event later in the year that it’s too soon to talk about yet lol.
    Enjoy the rest of the tennis.

    Hi Denise,

    I’m so pleased you had a great day out at Wimbledon. The atmosphere is nothing short of magical isn’t it.

    The Amazon Fire was a fabulous offer – I hope you managed to tune in!

    Best wishes

    Hi Linda and I love your dedication in taking the 2 weeks off work.

    I’ve been very tempted to do the same but my shifts normally allow me to watch quite a bit of the court action.

    I try to copy the pros but with limited success!

    All the best

    Hello Mila, thanks for your comment.

    We ate soooooooo much food on our day out! It’s only once a year so we really treat ourselves!

    All the best
