Getting close to nature, and an exciting new project…



The first month of the year is almost over already – hope you’ve kept warm, it’s been a chilly one hasn’t it! I’ve been looking after the birds in my garden this month – I snapped up the new improved version of Richard Jackson’s bird food from QVC, got my ‘proper’ camera out and managed to get some lovely close-up shots of a nice selection of feathered friends enjoying their breakfast. We even had a pheasant popping in one morning, snapping up the seed dropped by the small birds from the feeder up in the tree. It’s such a joy to stand by my kitchen window and watch them, I love it.

Talking of birds, my sister and her husband visited from Dublin at the weekend and on the Saturday afternoon we headed off to Slimbridge, a bird reserve in Gloucestershire run by the Wildfowl & Wetlands trust. It’s just wonderful – I’ve never seen so many swans in one place, and we even got to see some cheeky otters eating their fish dinner. Highly recommended if you’re in the West Country.

Now…a sneaky peek for you! I’ve been working on a very exciting new QVC project, with none other than the fabulous Ruth Langsford of This Morning and Loose Women fame (and of course, Mrs Eamonn Holmes!). I can’t tell you anything else right now, but watch this space…more info very soon!


I’m taking a bit of time off next week but I’ll be back on QVC on the 10th February. See you then!

Love Jackie x

    Hi Jackie

    Love the pictures. Such beautiful birds!

    I just want to say that I read your latest book and it’s fab! Love how you keep it light, not too dark, and the language is not coarse. Hate how so many authors fill their books with such unnecessary coarseness as opposed to proper meaningful dialogue. Even though I like dark psychological thrillers, I very much appreciate how refreshing your style of writing is. Very well done xx

      Hi Tania,
      Yes I love watching the birds! And that’s so kind of you, thank you. I actually normally read dark psychological thrillers too, and actually have plans to write one at some point, so stand by…!

      Hi Dee
      Ruth is an absolutely lovely lady and very down to earth, not at all ‘celeb-y’, so I hope you will enjoy watching her despite your misgivings. Have a lovely week.

    Hi Jackie,
    I saw you on the lunchtime show today & you had a lovely necklace on, is it a QVC one?
    Have a nice break!

      Hi Laila,
      I have a feeling that was a Danielle Nicole pendant, have a look at the website, it should be on there!

    Like the previous comment we don’t need celebrities to tell us how to look and what to wear. We have our own minds. My wife looks nice all the time and she chooses her own clothes. Too many celebs on QVC NOW.

    Here here I agree why should celebs. try to sell us their choice of clothes Ruth Langsford hmm wonder what she gets paid for these shows I notice she always selects expensive designer labels
