No this is not a spelling mistake but the name of an award-winning female singer with a voice like velvet who will be joining Miceal and myself on the Saturday Night Show tomorrow ahead of the release of her new album ‘Into Colour’, which you will be able to pre-order on QVC … more of that later.
I wonder how many of you have been looking around your home this week and deciding what needs to be done to get Christmas ready? That is what I have been doing as I must confess to an awful lot of ‘stuff in boxes’ still stashed in the attic room since our move to this house in January.
Normally this is okay as we don’t go up to the top floor much BUT we have visitors coming for Christmas … Chris’s mum is a definite, my mum is a potential and of course Daniel will be home so we will need all the space we can get. My idea is to put Chris’s mum in Daniel’s old room and inflate the airbed in the attic for Daniel but we needed to create some floorspace first so last Saturday Sophie and I spent the whole day sorting, tidying and throwing away. I would say we are about halfway there but at least we can see carpet now!
I also decided that it is about time we had some new sofas. Ours are at least ten years old and lacking support, plus the fact that they don’t match because I let Daniel have the two-seater to get him started in his new home so we are using one that was in the children’s games room as our second sofa, which is even older and has seen better days.
Sophie found a deal on line and while we were at it we also ordered a new rug to replace the threadbare one and match the new colour scheme. There is still so much to do in the house but it is fun when you start to see things taking shape. Once everything arrives I’ll take some photos.
Well you certainly liked the Butler & Wilson TSV, which I believe is almost sold out as I write. I am on with Simon again tonight at 7pm for his Butler & Wilson World Couture show so I am hoping for some sparkly tops. Prior to that I have Join clothes at 4pm and Ronen Chen for Fashion on Friday.
So to the Saturday Night Show. Not only do we have the Decleor TSV, which launches at midnight tonight and features the NEW handcream (you know I am a big fan of the old one but I think this, although different in texture, is just as good), we also have a live interview with Rumer as I mentioned at the beginning.
She has performed sell-out shows in London’s Albert Hall and Southbank Centre, performed to President Barack Obama and her first album ‘Season’s of My Soul’ went double-platinum in the UK. If you are a fan of Karen Carpenter-type vocals, smooth and velvety, join at around 8.45pm for a studio performance and live interview. You will also be able to order the new album, due for release on November 10th.
Enjoy your weekend.
