My Mum is simply fabulous and we've bought some lovely treats for her. Including the hourglass diamond dust pendant (pictured left) we recently featured in my Destination Gems show. Even when you know what's in the parcel and even though I've handled the jewellery on air, it's still very exciting waiting for delivery!
Hopefully Mum'll love it. She adores whimsical, personality filled designs! We've also bought Mum a Minimo Charlie Bear among other delights and had some of her favourite photos framed for her. So, while preparing for Mums birthday it's been a busy few days.
I had one very lazy day when my son was off school poorly. We both huddled up on the sofa and caught an episode of Only Fools and Horses. Well, they say laughter is the best medicine and it certainly seemed to help! It was the episode where Rodney goes it alone and ends up bidding for what Del Boy is selling! I still think one of the best episodes has to be with the Batman and Robin scene! Then of course there's comedy gold with Del leaning on the bar (well, not quite!) and falling over!
The puppies are doing really well. Around 21 weeks now. As you can see they made light work of my other half's favourite hat! Oops! Sorry, I took my eye off them for just a minute… or maybe two minutes!
I'm really excited about some up and coming shows. My next Destination Gems show is on Tuesday 26th February. We focus much of the show on the birthstone for March which is, of course, the deliciously vivid and crisp Aquamarine! We also see the return of the constellation pendant plus a few other treats in store including 'The Reveal'. Also, we're working on the next competition prize too… I hope you can tune in at 8pm.
The very next day on Wednesday 27th Feb at 12 midnight I'll be launching the brand new Northern Nights Today's Special Value. Well, what can I say… I'm currently sleeping on the job as I try this on your behalf. Well, that's not strictly true! In fact I'm sleeping under it as it's the most beautiful Down Duvet! Quite simply, out of this world and so very, very toasty! Check back in a few days for sneak peak at the duvet before the day.
Ok, in the meantime, back to the preparations of Mum's birthday… Now how many candles do I need for the cake? Still no idea!
