I always intend to get organised for Christmas early but tend to leave it until after my son Dan's birthday on 27th November. This year though I haven't been very organised at all and I'm embarrassed to report that I only went out to buy my Christmas cards today!
Oh dear – that will mean a very busy weekend both at work and, in between times, writing cards. Thankfully Dan has volunteered to give me a hand a , unlike Sophie, he is not working this weekend.
Incidentally, thanks for all the cards that have been flooding in – I will start to put them up in my dressing room on Monday. I have made the Christmas cakes, one for home and one for the backstage boys and girls, but I haven't made a single mince pie yet, although I did eat my first one yesterday. Is anyone else as disorganised as me???
I have bought a few Christmas presents though – I had a couple of Elemis TSVs, a L'Occitane one and a couple of the Thorntons chocolates TSVs, and other bits and bobs besides… thank goodness for QVC as I never seem to have time to go to the shops these days.
I think I'll be shopping again this weekend as we have the Entice crystal bracelets back for the TSV tomorrow and a brand new interior design show called 'N Home'. Its creator is Ron Norsworthy who started his career as a set designer but has since gone on to create fabulous interiors for the likes of Tyra Banks and P Diddy and who in 2009 created the Christmas light display in the garden of the White House.
I've been burning one of his candles over the last couple of nights - absolutely beautiful fragrance, and he also does opulent bed linen and throws and cushions. I'm really looking forward to the show on Sunday at 9pm as he is a bit of a character, but hoping that there will still be plenty of stock left after his earlier show with Simon.
Must dash as I'm on air in fifteen minutes with Fashion on Friday and I've still got my hair rollers in!!!!!! I told you I leave things to the last minute!
Much love, Julia xx
