Simon Wilson’s caption, and my new front door


What a fabulous anniversary show of Butler and Wilson fashion we had last weekend. And what a funny photo Simon’s sister Margaret took prior to going live – and when I posted it on Facebook it garnered lots of funny caption suggestions! (By the way, go here to see my official Facebook page and ‘like’ the page to keep up with the updates and new links to Early Bird order links for upcoming products!)


I liked these ‘captions’ – aren’t people inventive! Here are some :

Some of the offers are still active online – go here to see our Butler and Wilson range, and check out the reductions. One of my favourite items was this one – the iconic brooch!

Then this popped up online – a memory from 9 years ago on Facebook – 9!! Just before I came back to QVC, but I’d just joined Facebook and had posted my original publicity shots from when I first started on QVC in 1994 – and spot the brooch – guess which one I was wearing? A Butler and Wilson crest one.

Did you have one of those? Still got it? I think I had to return mine, but I still have the dancing couple and skeletons. Kind people said I didn’t look any different but I think it’s just makeup! Haha!

To prove it, watch this vlog (video blog) from this week – with messy hair and no make-up! Go here to watch it – including an update on the knee…

Knee’rly there
Yes, it was back to the docs this week as the poorly knee is not improving as much as it should. The netball injury from early June (was it?) caused fluid on the knee, as the ‘nice’ doc proved when I visited him and he stuck a needle right into my knee-joint, and drew off two 15ml syringes full of a straw coloured liquid, proving to me why I need anti-inflammatories and a lie down! Lol.

As if I get the chance! On QVC we are mostly standing too, which doesn’t help I suppose. But the recommendation from my specialists previously was to ice the joint and put the leg up higher than my heart and stay there several times a day. Er… ok! Nevertheless, it’s felt a bit better and I have to go easy until the ligaments are healed – up to six months! Serve me right for being too energetic. Bodyblading helps, I feel, ironically, probably by strengthening muscles and helping the core. (Bodyblade is here.) But my evening yoga and stretches have now extended to nearly half an hour so let’s hope it helps! Have you got any tips? (Also for carpal tunnel and TOS which my right hand has got. Only need an ingrowing toe nail now and I’ve collected the set of ailments! Hehe!)

Latest updates on my website blog including the Book of the Week – just finished listening to Julie Cohen’s ‘Together’ – OMG what an amazing ending! Click here for a very special message about it.

Mat didn’t get the memo – need I say more? Such a funny weekend. By the way, Lee was selling the Amazon Echo amongst other things and I just got my white one – it’s super! The sound is amazing. Did you ask Alexa anything funny, if you got one? What did she say?

Rehearsal Had theeeee most amazing rehearsals this week for the upcoming concert – was singing with a pianist and with a saxophonist in a front room in Chiswick! Very exciting!

Facebook Funny Lee Hohbein again – what can I say, he’s hilarious!

Gatineau upcoming deal – very excited about this upcoming Gatineau Defi-Lift set including the launch of the brand new body oil for lifting and toning – yay! Can I bath in it?

Next week – another visit to see my little sponsor dog Derek from Medical Detection Dogs – can’t wait to see him and maybe little Lesley too – well, they’re not so little now are they! And Lolly’s hen-afternoon-tea, in advance of her big day the week after…
