Birthday card

What a Week of Celebrations!


I’m not going to lie, this will be a much shorter blog than usual because I’m not technically working today as it is finally Publication Day for Little Girl Missing and I’m off to meet my editor at Bookouture for lunch. I’m also having a small celebratory gathering tonight, so this morning has been about cleaning the house and making sure I’ve got enough food and drink in! It’s a good job I had a decent night’s sleep and I got that because I have a wonderfully comfy bed!

I took the plunge last year when we had the Sealy bed TSV and I must say I’ve never slept so well. I also bought a mattress for one of the other beds because at the brilliant QVC price and with interest-free instalments I could afford to. So, if you are in the market for a new bed, check out tomorrow’s TSV, already on pre-order, make a fabulous saving and try it out using your 30 night money-back guarantee. I would highly recommend.

So ‘him indoors’ had already gained lots of fans after I posted the picture of the birthday card he bought me and the message inside on Instagram. Take a look and decide why you think I’m marrying him… heart of gold! Well, I think he might gain a few more fans when I tell you he had a cake made for me to celebrate Publication Day! How lovely is this? It will seem a shame to cut into it tonight. By the way, if you prefer audiobooks to ebooks or paperbacks, it’s also out in audiobook today – a first for me.

Talking of cakes – I had a chocolate birthday cake made for me by my daughter’s boyfriend, Reece and it was absolutely delicious! We went out for a meal (in the torrential rain) along with Dan and his girlfriend. The four of them gave me tickets to go and see Big, The Musical when it opens in London in September and ‘him indoors’ bought me a ‘Meet the Meerkats’ experience – more brownie points!

Before I finish, here is a list of my ten favourite body, hair and nail, beauty products, as promised:

Decleor Hand Cream
Decleor Systeme Corps
Decleor Gradual Glow
Liz Earle Hand Wash
Elemis Skin Nourishing Shower Cream
L’Occitane Foot Cream
OPI Nail Envy
Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer
Ultrasun SPF 30 Tan Activator Body
Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer (yes it is worth the money)

Apologies that this is a slightly shorter blog than usual but I’ll make up for it next week with lots of party photos too.

See you on air next Friday!

Much love,

Julia xx

      Hi Elizabeth,
      Yes, it really is all go this year – as I write this, our wedding day is eight weeks today & I still don’t have a dress!
      Busy editing the next book now, out in October which is also the deadline for the first draft of the third book 😱
