I think having Bruce Forsyth on QVC must have rubbed off on me a bit!!! But I'm actually talking about going to see my Mum on Monday and finally meeting her new kitten Tabitha, who is just as adorable as her photos.
My sister had organised the get-together, and come down from Scotland with her husband, as it was the fourth anniversary of my Dad's death.
In previous years I have felt very sad and emotional, but this year I think we were all more reflective about the huge influence he had in our respective lives.
It was a little cold for my Mum, but my sister and her husband, and Chris and I, went to the Memorial Gardens, where we had planted a Winter Jasmine in his memory, and I am pleased to report it was looking very healthy and sporting some yellow blossoms – Richard Jackson would have been impressed!
Tabitha has been great company for my Mum and wasn't in the least bit fazed by the sudden arrival of lots of 'new' people. She is very playful and I am just wondering if my Mum will dare to put up a Christmas tree this year – I can see Tabby perching on the top of that for a bit of fun! Like all young things she has a lot of energy!
Talking of energy, I will need plenty for my Zumba show tonight at 8pm. If you are trying to drop a couple of pounds to fit into 'that' dress for your Christmas parties, there is still time!
I have a busy weekend ahead with lots of great shows including L'Occitane, Gatineau and Kipling, and in between times I will be baking a birthday cake for Daniel for his birthday on Sunday, and hopefully squeezing a football match in too!
And then of course the Butler and Wilson TSV on Monday midnight. I have the teddy option of the keyring (pictured above), which is really cute. It comes with a chain so you can detach the keyring and wear it as a necklace if you want to. What a clever idea! They will be Simon's last shows of 2011 so hope to see you there!
P.S. My Elemis TSV's arrived today – hope you got yours!
