Dinner dates and a brilliant Lock & Lock offer



Well, the summer continues and isn’t it glorious?! I know we really could do with some rain and at times it has felt so hot but I won’t let myself complain!

What have you been up to over the last couple of weeks and any plans for the rest of the summer?

I have had a busy couple of weeks preparing to move house (will tell you more about this in the coming weeks) and also had some wonderful time with friends too.

Talking of friends, I have always got on really well with Eilidh and last week we had both finished on air around the same time so decided to grab a quick dinner. It was a lovely balmy night so we sat outside and tucked into chicken, rice and salad at a local Turkish restaurant with a cool glass of wine, it was so lovely to have some time together.

This weekend was cause for a big celebration with my best friend Julian’s 50th birthday! It all started with a long boat cruise on Regent’s Canal, followed by lunch and then a garden party.

Glorious weather all day, lots of fun and first glass of champagne at 10am – eeek! Lets just say Sunday I had a teeny bit of a headache!!

Lots to look forward to at QVC as always; this Thursday sees a Today’s Special Value from Lock & Lock – I adore this brand and often say I never thought I could get so excited about storage containers! I use mine predominantly in the kitchen and from cupboard to freezer, dishwasher to bag they are brilliant!

I take my food to work in them, I store my cereal in them, herbs in the freezer, leftovers – you name it they go in a Lock & Lock! Can’t wait to show you the set during The Lunchtime Show!

Then next week we will be gearing up for Christmas in July – hurrah – more on that in next week’s blog.

For the moment, enjoy the sunshine, keep smiling and sending big hugs as always.

    Julian’s birthday party looks hilarious, what a great way to turn 50!

    After watching one of your lock and lock shows and putting a few to the test they are now they only food containers I use. They definitely keep food fresher than the traditional storage box. I am slightly OCD so as soon as a food package is opened it is popped in a lock and lock. Where it is air tight I know that any food smells wont get out and it will keep it fresh – no more hard Jaffa cakes!
