I hope you all had a lovely Easter? After my Good Friday shows, I had the rest of the Easter weekend off but far from relaxing I was busier than if I had been at work!
On Saturday I had to have a 'flick around with a duster' as my brother and his girlfriend, Remy, were staying the night with us, prior to flying out to the Philippines on holiday. I made risotto for dinner and also a 'luscious lemon cake', as it was Remy's birthday.
Easter Sunday saw us up early to take them off to the airport and later Sophie arrived so we could all sample our Easter eggs. We had a lazy family afternoon with the footie on in the background while we played games of 'Guess Who'! This is a game my children loved when they were very young, so a couple of Christmas' ago we bought the new updated version, which has sheets of additional 'characters' that you can slot in.
Chris and I kept making mistakes with the characters we were flipping down, which had us in hysterics, and the children rolling their eyes at us – after all it is supposed to be a game for 6 year olds and I promise we hadn't touched a drop of drink at that point!!!!
On Easter Monday, Daniel and I went to watch Crystal Palace take on league leaders Southampton with my friend Stretch. We lost!!! I guess that is why they are league leaders. Then home for a roast dinner, followed by Eton Mess, with our guests Sophie and her new flat mate Gilly, before heading off to the cinema to see The Cold Light of Day. Sorry to say I wasn't very impressed with the movie, although it was nice to see the scenes they shot near our house in Spain… fortunately there was no sign of a lilac clad woman wielding binoculars!!!
Tuesday and Wednesday I managed to get a bit more writing done, so I came into work last night for a rest!!!! I am really looking forward to this weekend as it's our 'Love My Look', fashion weekend. We have got two great TSVs from 'Attitudes by Renee and Kipling, plus footwear from Marta Jonsson and jewellery from Lola Rose.
Also check out our Lingerie boutique shows on Sunday – can't wait to see Jaynie Roberts, the guest for Slim n Lift, for a catch-up!
If you can't wait for the weekend to start, join me at 5pm today when we will be previewing some of the ranges featuring over the weekend,
Much love, Julia xx
