Reasons to be cheerful!



Is it just me or do you find this time of year passes far more quickly than the spring or summer? I can’t believe we are in the second week of November already, although to be fair with the exception of the recent storms it has been unseasonably mild! I was out for a walk the other weekend, and saw this blackberry bush in flower! I’m not sure if it will actually get the chance to fruit, but rather lovely all the same. And just this morning -10th November – I found these three beautiful roses in my garden! Can’t make my mind up whether to pick them or leave them! Thanks for sharing your lovely Autumn memories with me on the blog. I really enjoyed reading through them, but felt quite nostalgic – there really is something very retrospective about this season…


My roses

It seems to have been a good year for sloes and damsons too, although I’ve not made any sloe gin this year, but I did stew quite a few damsons which I have since frozen. How about you? Have you been stewing, pickling or preserving?! : ) Actually it’s all about edible treats this Friday when we have a Thorntons chocolate TSV, and several hours dedicated to our many fine food brands. I will be in the kitchen at 4pm with Brett and Christine from the Real Pie Company – I’m not planning on eating any lunch that day, so I can make the most of their fabulous fare! Then to wash those down, I will be sampling some classic beverages with Octavia from Whittard of Chelsea at 6pm. I thought I’d go back to the kitchen at 7pm, where I have a fabulous collection of all kinds of edible treats, so do tweet me @alikqvc or call in so you can be a part of the shows. In fact something very exciting will be happening in our QVC Kitchen on the 17th November, but more on that later!!

15th Anniversary

It’s been a while since I saw you, as I had a number of different dates in the diary, including my 15 Year Anniversary with QVC, and a weekend away with some girlfriends. Another date though, that we believed to be some distance off, was the arrival of my niece Emily’s first child. The baby was due on 6th December, but arrived last Wednesday weighing 6lbs 3ozs! It all happened rather quickly, but husband Paul was able to be with Emily to support her, and they are now the perfect little family, with their beautiful baby boy home with them.

Baby James

They have named him James after my dad, which is such a lovely tribute to a man Emily sadly never met, as my sister was just six months pregnant with her when my father died… So another new life in our family, and just two days before little Honey had her six month anniversary!! I can’t believe it’s been that long since Lucy gave birth, and now my gorgeous granddaughter is sitting up on her own, eating solid food and has just learned to say Mama! : )

We had a lovely weekend with Lucy, Simon and Honey, with plenty of time for hugging and holding her on the Sunday while her mum and dad went to explore Windsor. She fell asleep in my arms after bouncing around on Colin’s knee for a while – priceless eh?

More great memories were made last Thursday night, when those of us who have been employed by QVC for the last 15 years, were invited to a celebratory dinner in a fabulous restaurant off Grosvenor Square. The room was beautiful, the food delicious, and it was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with our colleagues. My only sadness was that fellow presenter and friend Kathy Tayler, who started her career at QVC on the same day as me, had a rotten cold and cough, and couldn’t make the evening. We raised our glasses to her though, and shared some great memories, and I’m hoping that once she’s better, we will definitely get to see each other.

Girls weekend

Apologies, I do seem to be jumping around a bit in this blog and meant to tell you about the weekend away with my girlfriends! I missed the last gathering in March, so haven’t seen the girls since my wedding, when there were so many folk there, we barely had a moment! Suffice to say, it was great to get together, and to catch up on everything that’s happened in the last 12 months. The weather could not have been worse though, so we were more than happy to light the fire, get into our PJ’s, enjoy a bit of pampering and put the world to rights over a few cosmopolitans!

Elemis 6 Piece Sensational Skin Collection Sweet Orchid

This pampering included trialling the Elemis TSV which you will get the chance to get your hands on this Sunday 15th November. It comes in a choice of fragrances, the girls were definitely Team Orchid.. just saying! Following on from foot filing and hand massages, we drank more of our rather delicious pink drink, which led us to believe that sticking false nails on with super glue was a good idea!! I was however, sober enough to realise I didn’t want to risk spoiling my fingernails because of my job, but I encouraged Deb to stick the nails on my toes instead!!! Suffice to say, after a 12k walk the following morning, eight of the false nails fell off, but I still have them glued VERY securely to both my big toes!! Any suggestions as to how to remove them would be very gratefully received!

KitchenAid K45 Classic Mixer with utensil set

Hopefully I won’t have had to resort to peeptoe sandals by next Tuesday, because that’s when I will be in the QVC kitchen once again, but this time with an incredible KitchenAid K45 Mixer as our TSV. Not only does it come with a coloured ceramic bowl, but we are also including a five piece KitchenAid gadget set too! The value is exceptional, so if you’re thinking of treating yourself or someone very special this Christmas, don’t forget we’ve extended our money back guarantee until 25 January 2016. If you loved the Great British Bake Off, you’ll know that this piece of equipment is paramount in working towards those magnificent masterpieces. It’s what swayed my son Sam and I when we got ours! : ) Actually, talking of TV shows, have you seen The Great Pottery Throw Down? Colin and I are hooked, and if you’ve missed it, it’s definitely worth finding on Catchup.

DQ 1DQ 2





Well, I’d better sign off now, but I will look forward very much to seeing you at 9pm with our regular Diamonique show which is crammed full of wonderful gift ideas like this stunning solitaire ring! Just £79 it has a fabulous faux diamond in this really high end 9 carat gold setting.

Take care, stay warm and well, and do keep in touch. I’ll look forward to hearing from you as always,

Love Ali xx

    Evening Ali, Your blog opened with the same question we were asking at lunch today and yes, i’m convinced the autumn months do pass by more quickly than those in any other season. We wondered if it’s because we come back from our summer holidays to a countdown to Christmas or that working in a school means that each year follows the same rhythm OR just whether it’s that time gets shorter as we get older… Your photos are lovely; countryside, friends and your adorable Honey. Congratulations all round on the birth of James, how wonderful that you and your sister had grandchildren born in the same year and your mum has a pigeon pair. Talk of babies takes me back two years and makes me relive the excitement I felt then – is it time to get out my baby box and start collecting all things small for a future baby? My current quest is to find an a new fascinator, with less than six weeks to go and at this time of the year when shops are filled with hats to keep your ears warm, I’m looking for something frivolous because i’ve gone off the one that’s been sitting in a hat box for the past few months. I loved GBBO and like you two have got into the pottery version. After I left the pressures of a career in the Civil Service i spent a few very happy years as an assistant in the art department of a local school. I worked for a man who was a ceramist and i find clay the most amazing material and its transformation into items of beauty has a feeling of magic. Off to search the web for the illusive headgear! Love from Jo x

    Hello dear Ali,

    So lovely to see your blog as I have to say that I was becoming a little anxious that all was not well, but instead really pleased to se that you having been having such a lovely time.
    Little Honey is a darling isn’t she? I can’t believe how much she has grown in such a short while, it is very true that they are not babies for long isn’t it, but what fun she will be at Christmas, I am sure that she will be more than a little spoilt!!!!!!!

    I read in your last blog about your special tea which was given as a gift to you and Colin, and as I am hoping to visit London for the day next week it has given me the idea of getting a git voucher for my lovely Son and daughter-in-law as a little surprise, would you recommend it please.

    Take care of yourself Ali and enjoy all the fun shows you have coming up.

    Love Gwen.

    Evening Jo, lovely to hear from you, and glad that you also are enjjoying the pottery series! I remember making things from clay and glazing them when I was at secondary school! That said, my pottery pig blew up in the kiln and someone sat on my leaf shaped plate!! Hey ho 🙂 I was interested to read your theory about the passing of the seasons… I am sure it has something to do with getting older, but definitely the Indian Summer has helped. So exctitng to think it’s only 6 weeks until the big day for you – I wish you every luck in your search for suitable headgear. I still have the gorgeous grey hat I wore to Lucy’s wedding if you’d like to wear that?! Isn’t James a sweetie – My mum was thrilled, but has yet to see him, so I know they are hoping to get her to them in the next week or so. Well, I had better dive off as I have my Diamonique show and then an hour with Emu – the boots that is – tonight! Take care, love Ali xx

    Hello Ali
    It was nice to read your latest blog as I was beginning to think you were poorly again! Glad that is not the case. I’m finding every season getting shorter but that could be an age thing – which we don’t talk about!! Like you I still have colour in my garden. The other day very regretfully I removed begonias still in full flower from my borders as they had to make way for my bulbs to be planted before spring arrives and they are still in the packaging…
    Lovely news about the latest arrival to your family. It’s great. You and your sister now can swop notes on each other’s little treasures. Honey is beautiful and will be grown up before you can blink so enjoy every moment with her. Would you believe that the virus I had before my September holiday to Cyprus continued for a further 6 weeks. It developed into viral pluresy (don’t think I’ve spelt that correctly) and well and truly took it’s time leaving my system. My husband says holidays are banned now as the last two I have been poorly. I did however enjoy Cyprus very much. The rest alone was good and the weather was wonderful. He is now looking where to go next time and has obviously forgotten his remarks!!!! Until next time keep well and sending you love and hugs as always. Judith X

    Hi Ali,
    Lovely to read your blog as usual. We are certainly paying for the lovely weather we had a week or so back. It hasn’t stopped raining for days now! I know I shouldn’t complain as we have been lucky so far with it being so mild. We were going to stay down our favourite place ( Porthcawl) last week to watch the firework displays but the weather was horrendous so we went home. It was such a shame as there had been a huge bonfire made.
    The photo’s of your roses brought back childhood memories for me. When I used to walk home from school there used to be a field with a privet hedge all the way around which had wild roses growing amongst it. The smell was so heady. Whenever I smell the white flowers of the privet hedge just transports me back in time. Of course its no longer there. In its place is a housing estate! Its funny how certain smells can evoke such strong images and memories. I’m the same with Wallflowers as my father used grow them. I searched our local garden centre for Wallflowers but must have been looking the wrong time of year.
    On the subject of nostalgia, my sister found an old Christmas card recently with all the ” old” QVC presenters on it. I think it was from 1998? We were trying to place them all. Its funny how so many have gone and how Qvc has changed over the years.
    I measured my Diamonique watch by the way. The actual bracelet length with the 2 links comes up at 7 1/2 inches. My wrist measures 6 1/2 inches. It does fit me, its just that I like a bit more drape to my watches. I have another Diamonique watch that does have quite a bit more drape to it.
    Gosh- hasn’t Honey Bea grown ? Its right what they say. They’re not babies for long. I bet you are going to have the most fab Christmas this year what with your first Grand-daughter, and you’re first being a married lady! I wish you every happiness anyway, you deserve it. I’ve been searching out QVC’s address so that I can send my Christmas card to you.
    Well, time has run away with me again. Glad you’re feeling better and back on air.
    All the best, take care.
    Love Tina S (S. Wales, where it is very soggy and blustery!!) xx

    Hi Ali. Lovely photos of Honey. Josselin now has four teeth and is crawling. We went to Disneyland Paris for a few days with Molly and Josselin and Jodie and Tom. We had a lovely few days Molly fell in love with Minnie Mouse and hugged and kissed her it was lovely to see the expression on her face when Minnie gave her a great big cuddle. I am lethal with super glue always manage to weld my fingers together. I hope you and Colin are keeping well.

    Hi Ali … Another interesting blog of everything happening in your life and lovely pictures of the children… I can’t believe how quickly the time goes by and now near another Christmastime and the first with your little granddaughter Honey…. How she has grown!
    QVC have had some great offers recently… And some great ideas …it seems everyone has everything these days so buying something different for friends and family is a challenge.I have enjoyed the foodie shows …. I laughed when you put the party hat on tonight … You know the one inside the huge cracker!!!! I did note that you were not cooking Christmas lunch this year ….lucky you. I do have a couple of shopping evenings to go to with my daughter and friend so hopefully I can pick up some gifts then or at least get some inspiration !So until next time take care and stay warm and well … Chris x

    Happy Sunday evening Alison. I am in bed shattered but pleased to have a productive day and now exhausted by your increasingly busy few weeks! Oh and before i go any further i am typing this on my Samsung S5 so may be the odd typo or two! More about me later but wow..what a lovely few weeks you have had. How lovely that 15 years at the Q was celebrated..i do hope Kathy is recovering and you can have another celebration soon. Honey is beautiful; i remember my two at that the fun starts as they start to move around..i remember putting Chloe on a rug in the middle of the floor in the lounge when she was about 7 months old..o popped to the kitchen and came back after a few mins and she was gone..she had wriggled and wedged herself behind the sofa! Isnt it lovely to catch up with girlfriends..we all have such busy lives but always manage a monthly night out to a local restaurent that takes Tesco vouchers..keeps the cost down!
    So, lots going on here. This week has been bonkers busy and mum needs more care in the evening so we are doing a bit more..that means that i need to be super prepared for forward planning meals for these days as i am home late. Cooking curry and Shepherds pie tomorrow for the freezer. Its been so wet and windy grass desperately needed cutting so as it gas been dry but very windy today I cut the grass after a long dog walk and sorting mum this morning..blimey it was really gard work but looks much better..not quite so paddock looking! Have to make an 80th birthday cake this week which is the last one i have taken on as now i work full time i have no time! Also i want to paint the hall, stairs and landing and chlo has a rather bad damp patch on her bedroom wall so that needs sorting..a builder friend is going to investigate Tuesday but think soffits, fascias and guttering need replacing…we still have the original tin guttering ftom when the house was built in 1937!!
    Its getting near to my Annual Shopping trip to Milton Keynes..2 weeks to go. Very excited!! Off to Kings College Hospital with mum next Saturday for MRI so lots going on. have a great week. Mary xxx

    My dear when, that is very sweet of you to be concerned about my health, but I am fine. I can be honest now and say that I’ve had to have a few more scans which always leave me a little concerned when waiting for the results. Luckily there is nothing sinister, and the bone density scan and appointment with the knee specialist are purely for wear and tear.
    Like you I find it hard to believe that honey is now over six months old and it was only when I saw little James and I realise how much she had grown. Every day though that she’s been in our life has been an absolute joy. I do hope that you will be able to get the voucher for tea at the Wisley. I would highly recommend it. Such a wonderful start to an evening in London or a standalone treat. Thank you for writing to me, and please do keep in touch. Love Ali XX

    Did you just, bless you for your concern, it was purely least I had taken all those I have just mentioned to Glenn, I have had to have a few scans following my six month checkup. Luckily nothing sinister to report, and it is the unmentionable ‘old age’ that could be causing the problems with my joints and my knees particularly. I do hope you were able to cut and keep, the begonias that you had to move? I hate getting rid of flowers when in bloom. So sorry to hear that you continued feeling poorly for six weeks after your holiday – what a nightmare! I had pleurisy many years ago, and it took months for me to get over it. It’s left me with a weakness on my chest too, so if ever i get a cold it always tends to go there! I hope that you will be able to plan another holiday soon, as it sounds as though you need another one after all that! Luckily I’m feeling much better now, and we had a very good weekend with my sister as it was her birthday. She is so excited about being a grandmother, like myself, and it is, as you say lovely, to be able to share experiences. Take care, and thank you for writing to me, love Ali xx

    Hi there Tina, do hope that south Wales isn’t quite so soggy and blustery today?! Lovely to hear from you, and to realise your childhood memories with you. I’m in complete agreement smell and scents can transport us back so many years, and evoke all kinds of images and memories. It’s funny that you mention wallflowers, as when I saw my sister yesterday I complimented her on her beautiful flowers that are currently in bloom and scented. Would you like me to find out where she got them from? It would be nice for you to have memories of your dad in this way. Thanks for explaining about the watch and bracelet length. I have a spare link if you like me to send it to you? Just let me know. I bet that all Christmas card to take you back, that was two years before you then I joined! Times change, and the years move on, but I’m very pleased to still be with the company 15 years on. Take care of yourself stay warm and well, love Ali xx

      Hi Ali, Thanks for your reply. It would be most kind of you if you do have a spare link for my Diamonique watch. It would be great if you could send it to me. I have written a Christmas card for you with my address which will be wending its way to you soon. Thanks ever so much.( Mine will be the card with the Welsh Dragon on it and Santa!!)

    Dear Elaine, how fabulous that Josselin now has four teeth and is crawling! That’s incredible. Honey has two teeth, but they have made her gums very sore so she has not been sleeping well. According to my mum, I was exactly the same age when I had my first teeth, but Lucy was 16 months before she had any! I despaired that she would ever have teeth and had visions of her with a false set as a child 🙂 I am so glad that you had your trip to Paris before the awful events of this weekend. Such a tragedy and such frightening times… Thank you for keeping in touch, and I look forward to hearing from you soon, love Ali x

    Hello Sue how nice to hear from you, and thank you for your kind words. I’m sure your grand daughters are a joy to you, and quite different in age so that is lovely to have the variety. As you say it’s hard to know where the time goes! I hope though that you get Apple opportunity to spend time with your family, as it makes the world of difference to not just you but then as well. I like you find the winter tends to live a little, but it has been so warm for so long, it might be nice if we had a little more change in the seasons – colder not wetter though! Do keep in touch, love Ali xx

    Hi there Chris, so glad you were able to join me for the food festival on QVC last Friday. I thoroughly enjoyed all my hours, and didn’t need to eat anything more when I got home! The weeks seem to be flying by, and although I have already bought a lot of my Christmas presents from QVC, I still have plenty more to go! It will be strange not to cook this Christmas, but I am looking forward to it as a treat, and being with Lucy, Honey and all the family will be fabulous. I do hope you find what you’re looking for it when you go on your shopping spree with your daughter and your friend – if not the actual gifts, the inspiration, so maybe next time you are watching us you will see something you like! Stay well and warm too, love Ali xx

    Dear Linda, how lovely to read all your news, and I’m very envious of you going on the Coronation Street tour. Years ago when I worked for Granada television in Manchester, our studios were just the other side of the wall, and as I used to watch the television series I was thrilled to see ‘Rita’ one day! 🙂 I will look forward to hearing how you get on. Thank you very much for your suggestion about writing down Honey’s first words. I have more memories of my friend Jo’s children, than I do of my own, so I will get a book and start writing! Great to know that you will be spending your Christmas with your son and I hope he spoils you. Enjoy your time also with Harry and Ellie, Love Ali xx

    Hello there Mary, as always lovely to hear from you and I’m not remotely surprised to know that you are exhausted! As always your life seems to be at full pelt, with so many people to look after cook for and careful. You like I managed to get the grass done… So glad as ours also was looking a little paddock like 🙂 Colin had done anamazing job of cutting back all the conifers, so it’s easier to mow now rather than being attacked by branches all the time! I made a really nice chicken casserole this weekend, and there was plenty spare, so we now have quite a few meals in our freezer too! Good luck with the damp in your wall, it does sound as though maybe you need some new guttering! Not long to go before your shopping trip with your sister, so I hope the weather will remain relatively good and not cause you problems with the driving. Hope you might be able to be with me tonight, although it is a rather late special from KitchenAid – midnight onwards! Perhaps you’ll catch the repeats in the morning.

    Dear Debz and Ainzley, so very sorry I missed you on the last blog, but wanted you to know that I am thinking of you. It sounds as though you’re going through a difficult and stressful time, and that is very wearing.. I very much hope that things have eased for Neal, and that Ainzley is responding well to his meds. I think it’s those feelings of wanting to make things better, but not really being able to as it’s beyond your control. You know though that you can always write to us here and there is a whole army of support for you. We may not have the answers, but there is a big hug for you and lots of love too. Let me know how things progress and thank you as always for your kind words and concern. Six month check done and only old agere causing any issues! Take care,stay warm, and thanks again for writing. Love Ali xxx

    Dear Martin,belated congratulations to you for your 20 year anniversary! Five years more than I’ve been at QVC! I love the sound of your purchases, and would enjoy reading all the books you have chosen, and am a big fan of Paul O’ Grady too 🙂 Well done for getting all you Christmas shopping done.. I think I’m about half way through mine now! All good this end, and the children are doing well as is little Honey – over 7 months old now! They grow so quickly. Take care and I shall look forward to receiving your card 🙂 love Ali xx

    Hi Ali , sooooo enjoyed the Coronation st tour it was a real good girly day out lovely train ride to Manchester then we had a walk round Manchester and not only the shops but Christmas street markets of all kinds of goodies to by and eat ,the Christmas lights were joy to see so many they were wonderful ,after enjoying a lovely tea it was time for the mane event. First of all after the interdiction you were shown the dressing rooms, then the wardrobe area where the casts clothes past and present were kept .There are miles and miles of coridores as you will now after all this you stood behind these doors which should have been effectively in the bistro the guide opened the doors and the theme tune started to play and you were on the cobbles it was fantastic .You were free then to take as many pictures as you wanted ,the only down side was by this time it was dark so some pics are a bit so ,but it didn’t spoil through enjoyment at all .It is such a pity it is soon to end ,after a lovely but very tiring day we headed for the station and the journey home a very good day was had by all . Sorry if I have bored you , love Linda F XXX
