Debbie Flint

37 years of Brad; a 40 yr friendship lunch; and 7 days’ sneaky peeks! 

You know sometimes I start this by saying “another busy week?“ Well, I had the busiest seven days to cap them all, this week!

First, I just wanna say happy 37th to my boy, for today, the 1st of March (and my friend Caitlin down in Devon – which is a coincidence but they both share a birthday although not the same age ha ha. )

We had a smashing Italian meal near him in Fulham. (See top pic.) Put the world to rights as it’s been too long since we did a ‘just us.’ Then I went and got the kids after school and had another lovely time. Including being very proud of Blake when her teacher called me over and said what a lovely caring little human being she is, and to ‘tell mummy and daddy that whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it well’. How proud! Then she and I talked all the way to picking up her brother and we went to the playground. Fun times!

But the last 7 days, I’ve done so much!


Hollins on his Hols

They say you can’t make old friends – or old flames, actually, even though this one was less of an old flame and more like a little flicker – and no, that’s not a euphemism!) My lovely mate Andy Hollins also went to the National broadcasting school in Soho with me, in 1983, as did Andrew Collins with whom I celebrated in October, you might remember and with whom I now work at QVC! Anyway… Andy Hollins went on to become a successful radio presenter in the UK before he moved to LA nearly 3 decades ago with his boyfriend, now partner, Peter Bowes,) and he came over on his hols and looked me up. We get on like an absolute house on fire, you know like when you meet up with a friend that you haven’t seen for a long time and it seems like only yesterday. Enjoyed every minute and had some lovely reminiscing. Let’s do it again soon, Andy! 

More reminiscing over on my newsletter this week where the exclusive is a very early family video! (You need to subscribe by pressing the newsletter button at the bottom of this blog and you will get a weekly email, telling you that the new blog is out and some exclusive content!)

That’ll be the Day

Then it was off to the theatre, after lunch with Andy. I met mum n co for the Epsom Playhouse annual “that’ll be the day“ cabaret style music extravaganza night – and very good it was too, as ever. Well done Trevor and Gary. I was brought up at caravan site hols,  where there was always evening entertainment which was very often people doing cover versions in order to sound like the real thing. Plus some sketches in between. Well this was no exception! Our little family and friends group really enjoyed it! Well done mum for booking it and thank you :-). I hope they are back next year.

HRH and me

As promised I got the final official photographs back from my charity event at the wonderful Clarence house last week, and, this is where I met Queen Camilla, (with Gill Wright in the background who works on EastEnders and is also an ambassador). Do go back to last week’s blog to find out more about this super day out – one of my most memorable in the last couple of decades! I had just made her laugh! Very honoured to be invited by Medical Detection Dogs, my charity, for the 15th anniversary – HRH Camilla is also a patron. Hope you saw the piece on the news that night, where the littlest doggy was chewing the microphone! LOL

And There’s More….

Plus I went to the cinema, had some appointments, and the end of my trip in Devon last weekend, saw several other friends on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I must admit though, I did speak with Andy Hollins about the need to write my book and he said he would keep me to it. Still time this year to get it done… 🙂 🤞📖
