Mayfair Manor sneak peek and an update


I hope all’s well with you and yours.

I managed to get a few days break last week, nothing special, just an opportunity to catch up with my DIY chores at home and visit a couple of universities with our two resident students. I think it really brings it home to both Tracey and I and Ali and Jack that University is now a fast approaching reality and heralds the start of major changes for us all. Suddenly focus on those summer exams is a little more intense. Rather them than me!

A few of our friends who have already been down this bumpy road with their children think Tracey and I will experience a huge change in our lives as they both leave home for Uni together – leaving ‘Chez Franklin’ ominously quiet. At least we’ll have our two shaggy friends to amuse us and keep us on our toes, although we are a few months away from all of this, I must say it has cropped up in conversation a great deal recently.

Ellie had a hair wash the other day and like so many young woman decided to let her hair dry naturally wearing a rather fetching Turbie Twist  – hmm! It didn’t stay put too long. I wanted to get another picture of them both together to show how much Ellie had grown, she’s not quite as tall as Toby and possibly never will be but she’s giving him a run for his money! The trouble is she’s so inquisitive and getting her to stay still for more than a second isn’t at all easy as my photo shows. As I pushed the shutter she saw something approaching and you can see the resulting photo – better luck next week – Maybe?


Wednesday – Amazing Mayfair Manor offer! 

On Tuesday night into Wednesday morning our Special Value offer is from our very own bedding range, Mayfair Manor. It offers unbelievable value if you are in need of a reversible six-piece Duvet Set – (including 2 x Standard + 2 x Oxford Pillow cases) it’s made from a lovely light, soft touch poly and therefore is very easy to wash and iron. It features a very subtle stripe on one side and an embossed scroll detail on the other. The embossing is very gentle but still adds a subtle suggestion of dimension. Needless to say the price is phenomenal even the SuperKing size is under £40! This amazing set is available in a choice of  four colours; Champagne, Ivory, Aqua and Lilac. I hope you can join myself and guest Linda Magistris at midnight Tuesday for its launch.

Until next time, stay safe, warm and healthy
