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!
So my niece Chloe finally got married last weekend and it was gorgeous. As you can see from the top picture, Lauren my girl was a bridesmaid and looked amazing, and Brad my boy was handsome as ever. The bride was beautiful, the dad (my bro Derek) was proud, and me and my siblings enjoyed it a lot.

A fabulous author who has achieved something quite extraordinary in over 90% of five star reviews on this enchanting tale.
I picked this since Claire is one of our regulars down at Retreats for You in Devon. As one of the professional writers, we look forward to her latest books and it gives us great pleasure to report on this one.
“They say three’s a crowd but when Boyd moves back into the family home with his now amicably estranged wife, Vita, accompanied by his impossibly beautiful twenty-seven-year-old girlfriend, Honey, it seems the perfect solution: Boyd can get his finances back on track while he deals with his difficult, ailing mother; Honey can keep herself safe from her secret, troubled past; and Vita can carry on painting portraits of the pets she dislikes and telling herself she no longer minds her marriage is over.
Here it is – finally – the audiobook of Take a Chance on Me! Originally self-published as ‘Hawaiian Affair’ (and followed by Hawaiian Escape and Hawaiian Retreat as they are called at the moment on Amazon) this is my first finished novel, and for three years people have been asking when the Audiobook would be out. Well here it is!
You may or may not know that I am published with UK independent publisher Choc Lit, and my very first novel with them, Take a Chance on Me, became a top 50 best selling e book last year. My ambition of a lifetime was fulfilled at Christmas, when it went into bookshops including WH Smith […]
