Toooooooo hot for me!



I think I'm annoying people by saying this scorching spell of heat has been too hot for me! I am more of a cold weather person (I get strange looks for saying that also!) Having said all of that, it's been great to see blue sky again!

I hope you've enjoyed the weather (with SPF of course!) and have kept well hydrated. I've been so busy at work (in preparation for the move to our new premises) and home that I was struggling to schedule in a morning to cut the grass and wondering if I would ever catch up with Casualty on the iPlayer!

Both are now done! I've always been a fan of Casualty; it's been running for years now. I seem to recall 'Charlie' having really 'big hair' in the early days? Or is that my imagination?

Do you ever have days where you're a little distracted… or a lot distracted? I recently caught myself washing up a carrot followed by pouring a glass of juice into a cereal bowl! Then there was the time I lost my car keys to eventually find them in the cutlery drawer! I'm hoping it isn't just me!

Can't believe June is around the corner, nearly halfway through the year already! Take care, see you soon, and hopefully, I'll be announcing a very special show coming up soon in my next blog.

This week's fact: In her lifetime, a worker honey bee makes around 1/12 of a teaspoon!

    That seems such a small amount of honey for a liftimes work,
    have you ever though what would be the summation of a human life made by some giant species of clever bees out in space somewhere,I’ve got a feeling we wouldnt amount to much, what do you think Charlie,( apart from the fact you are reading this nonsence some Scottish half wit is sending). But it is something to take up an empty corner of your mind when your day dreaming.Ha I am watching you with richard Jackson and you even bring food into a stupid little plant, spagetti indeed, your mother would clip your ears for that.
    Well moving day is getting ever closer, are you packed and ready to go? It will take a bit of getting used to, but no doubt if the kitchens are working all will be right with the world.
    I hope your DAD is continuing to improve, I have a friend who lives on the island and she and her dogs are suffering in this oppresive heat,hope your dad takes it easy. I heard you say you didnt like the heat,well your not alone, I am hopeless in this weather,I cant believe I’m saying it wont last much longer,we are never happy, that is the lot of man. sombody said that somewhere. I’ll blame it on Shakespeare, I blame every quote I cant remember the source on him, a great man but he didnt half write a lot of rubbish.
    Well I decided I was going to give you a deep and meaningful quote or saying each time I write,
    Take care Charlie, best wishes to the family,

    Hi Charlie.
    Thank you for mentioning the sun in your last blog it came out as if it was on que. I must be one of the mad one’s as I love the sun and heat.
    Poor Bella is beginning to think there’s a conspiracy going on, as you didn’t do her Charlie Bears again. She got in to a real strop. [Sorry she is becomming a real fan], and NO I’m not training her—promise.
    I’m looking forward to the “Entice” jewellery and hoping the bracelet’s will fit me as my wrists are tiny [5 1\2 inches]. Also hoping there will a red,white and blue one.
    Can’t wait to see the new studio’s next week.
    Love Bella and Debby

    Hiya Charlie,
    Your right his year is flying by it doesn’t seem two minutes since the year began.
    The weather has been really hot its been horrible but I suppose we moan when its to hot or when it rains.
    Loving the charlie bears as usual if I could I would buy them all. I am still keeping an eye out for Roxy the red fox which I requested with charlie bears.
    I am loving the new look to QVC its all up to date and looking fantastic as ever.
    I hope you enjoy the long weekend. Hope your ok.
    Take care Rebecca x

    hi Charlie hope you had a lovely birthday xx yes I remember Charlie from casualty having massive curly hair in the early day, and I know what you mean about getting distracted, by doing things without thinking so you are not on your own.
    Take care keep up the good work
    love and best Wishes Chantel xxxx
