Oh my goodness what a lovely time I have had recently, including in the writing retreat in France. Six days and nights all to myself with role reversal compared to what I normally do in Devon! A lovely group of writers, and the most gorgeous place including a fabulous pool. I took the top picture […]
I’m sure everybody will understand that there is no lengthy blog this week. QVC programming is also being altered accordingly because of the period of mourning following the passing of our wonderful Queen. I’m away in France on a writing holiday and we will all be watching the funeral on Monday. I promise I will […]
First, I was very impressed with the way the Dyson Corrale straightener/curler did my hair last weekend! What an amazing saving, and a brilliant beauty tool. This was such a nice picture I thought I’d send it to you this week 🙂 It’s quite trendy now to do the little straight bits at the ends, […]
Not only did I have a lovely time with my one-year-old grandson last weekend at his little party, I also had another super touristy day out with my friend Gill. And tonight, Friday the second, I launch one of the best Dyson deals we’ve ever done! See below. Meanwhile, where did September come from?! It […]
Well, I was spoilt this week. Not only did I go out to my niece’s birthday party, but I also went to an event I helped to organise in Redhill. The pub “Home Cottage” just opposite the station and it’s a pretty good venue. 40 youngsters turned up (okay some oldsters in there as well) […]
Well, it did not take me long to get back to having a Debbie day… day after day! Packed full with activities, that means. Well after being away for a month, I’ve ended up needing to get my appointments all in the diary haven’t I – from nails to my osteopath to having a MOT done, (car, not me!) to a dentist appointment and more. Phew. I’ve been watering the plants when I got home after work at night as I didn’t have time during the day, ha ha. Also had a lovely day out pretending to be a tourist this week as well, when I went to Buckingham Palace with Paddington, no not really, with my friend Gill!
Well this week the health retreat in Somerset finally came to an end after nearly 4 weeks 🙂 Having gone back to Devon for a few days this week before I went to my daughter’s in Wales, I was very happy to go on another walk down the country lanes. In fact I did a little vlog about it go here to see it if you missed it.
So this week after my whistlestop trip home, I was back at Amchara, The health retreat I booked a long stay at as a treat for my 60th, in case you missed earlier blogs! I was lucky enough that the weather was pretty good most days. So fortunate to be able to spend half an hour, nearly every day, in the pool. The water is always around 30° so once I’ve got used to it, it is heaven. So was some of the food, see below. But considering I’m into my third week there now, in total, I needed a change of scenery.
Thank you for checking in on this blog – transferred to this website because all QVC presenter blogs are on a little hiatus for the summer.
If you missed the previous ones, I am now on a long summer holiday at a health retreat in Somerset. It involves being here most of the time, doing exercise and treatments and swimming and eating healthily and getting fully involved in the whole Chillaxing thing! I popped out last week to go to Okehampton and the cinema, and I did the same again this week! See below. Getting a little bit more back to normal, I took a trip out in the car to explore a little, and found a charming little village called Wiveliscombe. And found a friend – look what was on top of the postbox just outside the old courthouse. (See it in the top pic). I had a little wander and tried to buy some healthy snacks! Then I did a little vlog from there, go here to see it.
Oh my goodness look at this mock up of one of my favourite Christmassy films ever. I said Christmassy, not Christmas. Well if diehard can be included why not this! And obviously I would have preferred not to have the cigarette in the shot but anyway… Yes Bridget Jones diary has a big Christmas scene or two, So that is good enough for me, and my favourite film ever, one of the top five anyway. What’s yours? Colin Firth in this film, is my top romantic hero in any film ever.
How lovely that Qvc behind-the-scenes people managed to mock up these film posters – all in aid of our Christmas in July weekend, which starts on Friday the 22nd at 9 pm and across the weekend (that’s “tonight “if you’re reading this on time!
