The middle of summer? That must mean Christmas in July!



I hope you’ve had a wonderful few days since my last blog.

I know it’s a very British thing to do but I can’t write this week’s blog without mentioning the weather. Wow – unbelievably hot and I know temperatures are high when my Dad tells me the weather is too hot even for him! He loves the heat and loves the sunshine but even Dad is struggling – and he lives by the sea with a sea breeze to help lower the temperature.

If you’ve read my blog before you’ll know that I’m not a fan of the heat and my Cairns certainly aren’t. We’re avoiding the heat for them, at all costs. Early morning walks certainly help. It’s important to remember pavements get especially hot too.

We’re fortunate to have a tiled kitchen floor, which is lovely and cool to the touch, and our wooden floor everywhere else down stairs is a favourite spot of theirs too right now. The evenings cool down considerably and their energy levels begin to rise and before we know it, all of a sudden, it’s playtime! They love to chase a ball and to ensure ownership they’ll be certain to find a secret hiding place somewhere tucked away in the garden. :- )

I’ve enjoyed a busy few days at QVC and I’ve just treated myself to a pair of new shoes. On Sunday we had a fabulous Skechers Today’s Special Value which prompted me to take a look at the men’s range. We have a number of different styles in stock and these Status Borges canvas lace-ups really caught my eye (159937).

I’ve gone for the Navy. I particularly like the ‘washed out’ effect which is also apparent on the black option too. They also feature a memory foam insole which helps make them incredibly comfortable. I’m looking forward to the delivery!

I’m also counting down the days to Christmas in July! It’s back and we have a really exciting day ahead of us on Monday 25th July. We have especially themed shows to bring you gifts, food, toys and so much more.

I’m looking after the last two hours of the day with Christmas with Alison Cork at 10pm followed by Christmas with Yankee Candles at 11pm.

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas in July!

See you soon.

    Morning Charlie.
    We’ve waited a long time for summer to arrive [ a week before Christmas in July ] what’s going on ????. Bella loves the sun but not the humidity [ the evening’s are the worse for her [ even with the Dyson fan on ].
    Looking forward to Christmas in July [ unfortunately no crafting again ].Must also get more Christmas Yankee candles. Also looking forward to Charlie Bears on 26th. Hopefully Bella will be watching.
    I must say we both loved the showing of ” the Turbie twist ” [ with your self ] …..VERY FUNNY. Bella enjoyed it.

    Hello Debbie and special whoofs to little Bella!

    So glad you’re enjoying the shows!

    As I write this the weather is certainly cooler so hopefully, like my Cairns, little Bella is feeling more comfortable.

    Take care
