Happy Birthday Mum!


Pendant for mumHello! If I mention my Mum's age I'll be in trouble! To be honest I have no idea… I think she must be… Oops, nearly guessed!

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!

The puppies at workHopefully 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!

Take care

Charlie x

    Hi Charlie.
    Just an up date, Bella is still still holding her own with the reduction of the steroids [ although she still has has a spell where she goes quiet], may be that’s her age though !!!. Fingers crossed she’ll continue on the up.
    Finally managed to get the pendant on advance orders [that’s o.k as it’ll go on the next month’s bill] the vet bills will be on this one. As you know there’s no limit to what I’ll pay to keep her well and healthy. The puppies certainly enjoy a good chew don’t they?? Bella was [and is still a chewer]. She chewed the legs on 4 dinning room chairs [ I hasten to say £200 per chair] when she was their age. She now has a plastic box she chews on.
    Enjoy half term with the children and I guess the Isle of White.
    I haven’t been there for many years.
    Take care.
    Love Debby and a BIG whoof from Bella [ and whoof to the puppies.

    Hello Debby and Bella! Thank you for your update. I’m glad Bella seems to be coping well. I’m glad you’re on advanced orders for the pendant. It’s well worth the wait! Vet bills can be costly but worth every penny to keep our bundles of joy happy and well. We didn’t venture to the Isle of Wight, we stayed on the mainland for a change…. Unlike me I know!
    Take care
    (oh, and two whoofs from the puppies!)

    Morning Charlie.
    Bella and I Enjoyed the show last night. I managed to buy the smallish stud earrings [I lost one similar to these ones]. I must admit the colour looked better than my other ones. Glad you eventualy got the pendant for your mum. Will there be any swiss blue topaz stud earrings of a similar size comming soon ??. How’s your dad’s back ?? better I hope.
    I told Bella your doing Charlie Bears on sunday [or I hope, or I’ll be in trouble]. Which minimo bear did you get for your mum ?? I’ve just found out there was a rabbit called Bella, unfortunately it’s no longer available [so I’m a little upset].
    Bella is still doing ok [ back to watching tv].
    Looking forward to the Sunday show, can you say hallo to her i’m wondering what she’ll do if she hears her name [I’ll have camera at the ready].
    Take care.
    Love Debby and a bid whoof from Bella.x
