Sleeping on the job!


Northern Nights Today's Special Value in AquaHello!

Hope you've had a great week so far. When I was asked if I'd like to try out a Northern Nights 'Todays Special Value' coming up… how could I resist?

We have four fabulous options available; the one I've been trying is 'Aqua' and just like the other choices, it is tonal and fully reversible. The Egyptian cotton feels fabulous, boasting a 300 thread count.

I'm on-air this Monday 10th July at 10pm with Amber Discoveries, and then I'm launching the Northern Nights Today's Special Value at midnight… I'll do my best to not fall asleep – but it does feel so good!

Funnily enough, as I write this it reminds me of a time when I really did doze off while working! I was based in a London studio working on a music production. It was the middle of the night and I was alone, dubbing the music to tape. I was soooo tired, that I fell asleep standing up, to then jolt myself awake just as I was about to fall over! It could have been a nasty fall, especially with all that studio equipment around me!

I hope you can join me this Monday, in the meantime I'll have another wonderful sleep with our Todays Special Value bedding set!

Take care,


This week's fact: Saturn's rings are about 270,000 kilometres in diameter. However, the thickness is estimated to be no thicker than 1 kilometre!


Until then – take a look at the Northern Nights range.

    Hi Charlie.
    Thank you so much for the card [ it arrived today]. It cheered me up as yesterday I was a dear friend funeral. She died suddenly on 18th. Then last night I broke a tooth in half and ended up having an emergency cap/filling.
    I hope you managed to sort your car out, it wasn’t the same one that some one bumped in to you in sept:?
    It’s a pleasure to put messages on your blog, Julia is the only other presenter I blog. Glad Bella gives you a laugh with her antics, I’m trying to get her hold your photo so I can get a picture but I’m not winning.
    I eventualy ordered Charlie bears ” teddy with wings” cutie pie as I feather fluttered in through the window [ an omen I think!!]I’m hoping it arrives before wednesday so it can come with me to hospital for my 2nd op [ it was cancelled in may].
    Take care.
    Love Debby and Bella say’s whoof whoof.

    Hi Charlie, not long now before the children are on holiday, I do hope the weather picks up a bit, poor kids will have webbed feet if we get much more rain.
    I was thinking of you today when during the news they told us of this amazing discovery which helps to explain the beginning of the universe,and the man responsible for starting this line of thought was in the audiance, HIGGS of THE HIGGS BOSON experiments, a day to remember.I think if you seen him you will tell your grandchildren you actually heard the announcement of this discovery to the world, it will make,who knows what to our world. My son was very excited about it, its really something.
    Will be watching on Monday, we only have NN bed sets now, I love the higher thread counts,its almost a satin feeling, great prices compared to the Dorma I used to buy.
    Hope the family are all well, and your Dad is back to fighting form,
    If you are going on holiday I hope you have a great time,
    On holiday Mary Poppins ordered califlower and cheese and two poached eggs
    signed the visitors book,
    Super cauliflower cheese but poached eggs were attrocious.

    Hi charlie
    Loved the opi show on monday evening,the mickey mouse ears suited you, it could have been worse they could have put nail polish on your fingers,now that would have been embarrassing for your children at school.
    I was laughing when you mentioned joey from friends with the hands and Lisa had no idea what you were talking about I love friends and have all the 10 series on dvd,as do my daughters,you can not pick a favourite from them as they are all brilliant together.
    Love the picture of the swan and her babies, you are quite the photographer.
    Love Jan xx

    Warmest wishes

    Hello Marg, your Mary Poppins reference rally made me smile. Thank you! So glad to hear how much you enjoy Northern Nights, I think we all love that satin feel. The world of science does seem to have made a very exciting discovery….. Who knows what the future holds!!!…
    Take care

    Hello Jan, thanks for your reply. I too, love friends. It’s hard to pick a favourite episode or scene…. There a so many. One that springs to mind is Ross getting the spray tan and another with Ross in the very tight leather trousers phoning Joey for advice from the bathroom!
    Kind regards and glad you liked the ears!
