It must be something to do with the summer holidays, but there seem to be an inordinate amount of roadworks in progress at the moment! I came out of the Q last night to find the M4 closed, so having circumnavigated my way around Hounslow, I joined it again, only to find they’d closed my exit too! Windsor looked lovely in the moonlight though…
Thank you so much for your patience and perseverance in posting comments here on the blog this last fortnight! We had a long-standing problem that has mercifully now been fixed, and so I’ve been trying hard to answer you all before posting this new one. Great to catch up on all your holiday news and to know that you enjoyed the family pictures. I’m so sorry I forgot to include the photo of the sunset – here it is – along with a picture of the moon from the other night when the clouds finally cleared. I have to admit to being a little obsessed with the moon at night, and working the late shift as I usually do, has given me far more opportunity to spot it!
Mind you, it’s not just the moon that’s caught my attention, but also some of the newer TV dramas! Are you watching Keeping Faith or Bodyguard? Both incredibly clever and so very well acted. I don’t want either of them to end.
I will admit to being more than a little envious though when I first saw our Today’s Special Value which is available up until midnight tonight! You might have seen James Murden and myself last night extolling the virtues of the Samsung mighty 55” curved screen Ultra HD Smart TV?
The picture is exceptional – all down to something called HDR 10+ that optimises the picture quality. Seriously, you need to get it home to truly appreciate it. Imagine watching Strictly Come Dancing, or The Great British Bake Off on it – so real you can almost smell the Victoria sponges! I particularly liked the fact you can hide all the cables away by clipping them onto the TV itself – so tidy!
It’s available in 4 Easy Pay instalments too so that spreads the £599.96 price, and our 30-day money back guarantee applies so we deliver it, and then pick it up if you change your mind. We’ve got a lot of long nights in coming up so perhaps this will be the year you treat yourself to cinematic quality in your own home. If you do, let me know what you think.
It’s only been a month since I stopped presenting my regular Diamonique show on a Tuesday, but I’m delighted to say that I’ll be with you for the launch of Diamonique Day on Monday 3rd September with Alison O’Reilly, and then with Charlie Brook for the three-hour finale the following night! The buying team have seriously pulled out all the stops and whatever it is you’re looking for, I can pretty much guarantee we’ll have it. I must tell you about the TSV though as it’s a personal favourite of mine.
A solid 9ct gold solitaire ring, in three different 1ct stone cuts for less than £75 with 3 Easy Pay instalments. It is EVERYTHING that makes Diamonique my favourite range of jewellery. Completely realistic, and beautifully finished. What a stunning way to move into September.
And it’ll be in September that my beautiful granddaughter Honey makes her move into the education system when she starts nursery school… I can’t quite believe it! Here she is in her little uniform, so excited.
Lucy brought her over on the Bank Holiday Monday and we had a little baking session while Lucy caught up with schoolwork. We made our own pastry in the KitchenAid, and then she did a fantastic job of putting together 12 jam tarts! Such an industrious little person 🙂
Outside of our family weekends, Colin’s been pretty industrious over the summer, and so we’re taking a wee break to Crete at the beginning of September. We’re both very much looking forward to it, as we’ve been like ships that pass in the night for the most part. I can’t deny that I am longing to get into the sunshine again. Having been so spoiled in this country this year, I’m relying heavily on Decleor’s Gradual Glow and Vita Liberata’s Body Blur to maintain that sunkissed look.
Thanks for all the compliments about my hair do, most kind. I’m planning to try the BaByliss Brilliant Shine Ionic Hairbrush as the bleaching tends to take out the shine. We’ll see how I get on.
With my love,
