Our kitchen is finally complete!



Gosh another week has raced by hasn’t it! I’ve noticed how the evenings are getting just that little bit darker now and the leaves are starting to fall. It’s a beautiful time of the year and I know my Cairns are looking forward for sure to rolling around in the leaves during our early morning walks. It looks fun so I may be tempted to join them πŸ˜‰

So many highlights of late at QVC one of which being my three hour Diamonique finale with Alison Keenan. Well as promised we were on our best behaviour… most of the time!

So many exquisite designs across the day. If you missed the event do check our website and app for our entire Diamonique range.

A piece which may have caught your eye and means so much is the Diamonique Breast Cancer Care Pink Ribbon Pin. A beautiful and very meaningful piece of jewellery and at least 60% of the sale price will be paid to Breast Cancer Care.

Our wonderful partnership with Breast Cancer Care began 18 years ago and with your kind support over the years we’ve raised over six million pounds so far! The total amount estimated to be raised during this years campaign at QVC is Β£300,000. Thank you!

Now, if you’ve caught any of my recent blogs you’ll know that we’ve finally had our new kitchen installed. It was ten years in the planning! We kept putting it off if truth be told but this year we finally took the plunge. I think the broken handles and missing cupboard doors was the final straw!

It’s looking lovely and we’re staying on top of the de-cluttering and cleaning to keep it that way.

We’ve treated the new kitchen (and us of course!) to a beautiful new appliance from QVC and Smeg. The stunning Smeg Retro Coffee Machine.

Oh wow!

It is a considered purchase but we’ve been planning this for some time, carefully budgeted and are thrilled we did. It looks fabulous and makes the most incredible coffee too of course. If you’re tempted and your colour is out of stock we’re doing our very best to bring it back as soon as possible.

Well now that I’ve written all about my shiny new coffee machine I think it’s time to go and make one!

Take care and see you soon πŸ™‚

    Hello Betty… Thank you for your lovely message. It was a wonderful Diamonique show and so good of you to stay with us.
    I’m not leaving just yet… Hopefully not for a long while at least!!
    The above image isn’t my new kitchen – it was a photo we used of the Smeg on show. Although I must say it is a great looking kitchen in that photo!

    All the best

    Hi Charlie.
    Really enjoy all your presentations and really love your dogs. I had three Yorkies and am surprised at the similarity to your cairns. I had always thought cairns were more wiry haired than yours look. But I can see that parting in their hair which indicates they have silky hair. Am I right?
    Show us some more!!
    Take care, don’t leave!
    Best wishes .
