Just a quickie blog this week – I wanted to share my very silly working weekend with you, and also give you a quick look at a great Today’s Special Value coming up this week (it’s an iron, and I adore ironing. Yes, I am a little odd.).
First, some of you may be aware that fellow presenter Chloe Everton and I have had a very childish on-going dressing room war, which involves us playing silly pranks on each other (I wrote about some of them in a previous blog here).
Well, this weekend it all escalated a little! I managed to get my hands on a 6ft inflatable dinosaur, which I decided to put in her dressing room. I blew it up at home, and it was quite a struggle to get it into my car – in fact, I had to drive all the way from Gloucestershire to London with its head resting over the front passenger seat, which was a little disconcerting and a source of great amusement for passers by every time I had to stop at traffic lights.
Her retaliation was swift, and quite unexpected! I was on air a few hours later, presenting a jewellery show, when the director asked me to show viewers the picture of Chloe and the dinosaur. I was rather puzzled by this – why on earth was I being told to do that? But there was a very good reason, as you will see in the video below….my poor car!
A whole new level of prank there, as I think you will agree! So now, it’s my turn. Watch this space…..
I have always loved ironing, as I often say on air – I find it therapeutic! But it is time consuming, and when I treated myself to a steam generator a couple of months ago, I was blown away by how it cut ironing time in half and gave such professional results.
I love ironing even more now! So I was delighted to see that on Thursday 21st August, our Today’s Special Value will be a superb steam generator iron from Polti, a company which has been making professional quality irons for the domestic market since 1978. Even better, I got one to test-drive at home.
I also really liked the shape of the aluminium soleplate, which has a nice narrow point which made it really easy to get in between buttons on shirts. You can iron just one side of a garment, sheet etc because the steam is so powerful it irons both sides with just one pass – it literally cuts ironing time in half, it’s brilliant.
As for the price – well, all I can say is that I wish I’d known about this offer when I bought my steam generator….I paid a LOT more for mine, grrrrrr!
Have a fabulous week!
