I'm sat on my kitchen floor as I write this with blazing sunshine pouring through the back door. The tiled floor is the coolest part of the house in this heat and yes – I've two mischievous Cairns staying cool by my side!
I can't believe we're in the month of July already. This is always a favourite time of year for me. Gardening and household chores go on hold as I drink in the atmosphere of Wimbledon. I was lucky to have tickets for the first Saturday. The weather, a total contrast to right now. It rained, rained and then rained some more! I think play was suspended for around four consecutive hours. But it was worth the wait. When court number 1 was back in play we enjoyed an exciting match between Alize Cornet and Serena Williams. There were some amazing points to keep us on the edge of our seats and entertained.
While waiting for the rain to subside we devoured plenty of strawberries and cream… of course!
Did you manage to get hold of the Links of London TSV? Wow, it flew out. In fact, it was selling so fast I actually ordered mine whilst on air! Coral, my lovely guest from Links, kindly chatted away while I went online and placed my order! We're popping it to one side for a very special 40th coming up later this year.
On the subject of Today's Special Value, I'm thrilled to be launching the Diane Gillman TSV this coming Tuesday 8th July at midnight. The soft stretch skinny jeans… they sound deliciously comfortable and of course, being DG, they'll flatter and fit beautifully.
I hope you can join us.
Well done if you guessed last week's mystery picture, an XBox Controller. What do you make of this week's?
