We're having a fabulous time. We recently bought a trampoline and are bouncing regularly…. It's lots of fun (although the building of it took me several hours and Bramble and Misty kept running off with the tools!)
We're very fortunate to have a cherry tree in our garden and this year we had the most amazing crop. Most years we miss out as the birds get to them first but this year they were left alone, maybe the presence of the puppies perhaps? In total we easily picked enough to fill a couple of carrier bags! I took in several batches to Alison Young plus several tubs to our neighbours, family and friends. Next year I'm planning to make a cherry pie or jar of cherry jam. You know how I like my food!
So, we're back together again! Dale and I are presenting three hours of diamonds this Sunday afternoon (4th August) at 5pm. We'll be on our best behaviour, honest! We have to be as it isn't past the watershed at that time of day. Do hope you can join us. If you've missed the promo for the show….you can take a look here… Oscar nominating surely! Lol!

On the subject of gems. Destination Gems is on air this Tuesday evening (6th August) at 8pm for the last time before its summer break. A beautiful line up for you and I'm hoping to be joined by a special guest. Also, this is your last chance to enter our competition for the beautiful champagne quartz. Simply tweet or post a picture of you wearing a piece of QVC jewellery. I'm @mecharliebrook and all the terms and conditions can be found here.
Finally, back to the topic of the garden and all things beautiful! We're seeing so many butterflies this year and I managed to snap this shot… Not sure of the species, Red Admiral perhaps?
