Well, that was September!


Hello! Hope you are well.

I can’t believe how quickly September went! They do say that time goes faster as you get older and I am starting to believe it!

So, how was your September? Mine has on the whole been pretty wonderful. There have been up and downs like any other month, but for me my favourite time of the year hasn’t let me down! There’s been plenty of late summer sunshine, wonderful things going on at work, great time with family and friends, and of course the little matter of my birthday!

Talking of my birthday, I had a wonderful time: I started the day with a wonderful long meditation followed by coffee and pastries on the balcony, then I had a surprise delivery of a wonderful cake from my dear friend Emma. She had ordered it from the Primrose Bakery and believe me when I say it tasted as good as it looked!


Then I headed up to my friend and QVC devotee Joy Salem, who specialises in wonderful non-surgical facelift treatments – great if like me you work weird and wonderful hours and can get quite puffy in the face. Joy gave me a birthday treatment and then we had delicious jacket spuds and salad for lunch.


In the late afternoon some friends came to my place for drinks before we went to see a show on the Southbank of London. All-in-all it was a great day!



Then this last weekend I spent a couple of days with my family in Bristol. We were blessed with glorious weather so it was a mixture of relaxing at my parent’s house, playing with my nieces Jasmine and Ruby and a lovely sunny lunch with my mum and sis. I adore my family so much, we’ve had our trials and tribulations like any other family but as I get older I can really appreciate how blessed we are all to have each other.


So, there it is, a wonderful, loving, nurturing September. And if you didn’t see my poem about Love September, take a look at my first blog of the month as it’s on there.

Would love to know how your September was and also what are your hopes and dreams for October? Drop me a line below, I reply to all comments and I love hearing from you.

Much love and big, big hugs!

    Enjoyed your blog this month Craig. Glad you had a good birthday and managed to have some time with your family, that’s great isn’t it. I agree with you this month has flown by. It was a good month managed to get some jobs done round the house. Hoping October brings more sun and good family time. Have a good week and take care Sue xx

    Hi Craig, glad you had a fab birthday! I too celebrated my birthday this month, yes, another Virgo as is my youngest daughter! Am sure you are a perfectionist too? I agree the weather has been kind to us but I am jetting off to Cyprus next week for a month to catch some autumn sun. Looking forward to it as just getting over the flu! Will be taking my iPad so can watch the Q! Hope to see you on air soon. Xx

    Always love reading your blogs and you always have time for other people, on a different subject I see that you have a love of Ibiza and we are thinking of going there for a trip in May next year, just wondered if you could tell me are there any places of interest, ie castles or ancient things to look at, or is it just a party island, any helpful tips would be grateful for, lots of love Janice xxxx

    hi Janice, thanks for reading my blog again 🙂
    Yes, I love Ibiza as does Chloe Everton, we hung out there together this year, such fun. I must admit I havent really been around the island as much as I probably could have so not sure I have that much good advice. I love the old town and the harbour, EScada market is really good and then you might want to treat yourself to a posh beach club one day too but I only do one a trip as they are very expensive. I dont really party that much there at nighttime but I do like dancing on the beach which is anyway in Playa Den Bossa! Hope that helps? Craig xx

    Hey Janice!

    Sorry for the delay and many thanks for your comment. Great to hear you like my blogs :-).

    Yeah lots to do in Ibiza. My personal favourites are going to the Old Town, visiting the Harbour, watching the sunset in St Antonio (it’s amazing!) and also going to the Escada Market. Beaches are lovely too. Plus the partying not bad! Hope that helps. Havea great week and stay in touch.

    Craig x
