Home schooling resumes

Hello there – I hope you’re all holding up. It all feels a bit over whelming right now. I actually had a little cry this morning but feel better for it now.

So the inevitable has happened and we are back to home schooling, where each child needs my full attention from 9 – 3 and the workloads seem relentless this time round with deadlines for hand-in. I have no idea how any parent working full time from home is supposed to it!

They also want feeding every 5 seconds, manage to trash the house and produce a ridiculous amount of laundry! To make this chore slightly less, I may have taken to wearing the odd T-shirt I’ve slept in the night before! Don’t judge me! I’m exhausted!

Add to that, the insomnia is creeping back – when a child wakes in the night because they can’t find their favourite teddy – which turns out to be right beside them – I struggle to get back to sleep, resulting in finally dropping back off just as they wake up for breakfast! Pass me the wine!!

So life is how it is right now and being able to escape to work is, to be honest, a total joy!

So lets talk about what exciting things are happening at the Q right now…

This weekend there are some awesome Today’s Special Values, as always!


On Thursday 14th, one of my favourite products is here at QVC! The UKLash Conditioning Serum 3ml Duo (242549). I use this product every day and my eyelashes are now soooo long. I recently got some for my sister and niece and I recommend it to everyone! So grab it while it’s a Today’s Special Value!! I don’t imagine it will last the day!

Just look at my lash length on the other eye! I’ve tried to highlight with the yellow – eyelashes for days!

On Saturday 16th, there’s the Morphy Richards 332103 Speed Steam Pro Steam Generator Iron with Intellitemp.

This clever iron means ONE temperature suits all fabrics!!! WHHHHAAAATTT??!! So no burns guaranteed! It’s part of the power steam elite range, so it’s one of their most powerful steam generators, ideal if you’ve got a busy home, and the high pressure means it can produce continuous steam for effortless ironing!!

On Sunday 17th, it’s the Block Blitz Paving Treatment Starter Kit with 8 pouches (715054), so say goodbye to pressure washing your patio or drive. You simply apply it and walk away, and this unique biodegradable mineral and plant-based detergent will clean and protect your paving! Amazing!!

And the QVC giveaway is still going until the 24th, with the big £10,000 draw on the 27th! With every order you make until then, you generate a unique order number – go to QVCWIN.COM and put that in and spin the wheel and you could win hundreds of prizes! Some lucky person has won a diamond bracelet, there’s cash prizes, Kipling, Lola Rose, top beauty brands and loads more! Even if you don’t win a prize you’ll be entered into the big money draw! Nothing to lose and you’ve gotta be in it to win it!

The weather has certainly been cold recently and if we are feeling it, so will the birds! If you’re looking for some quality bird food for your tables and feeders, then Richard Jackson has his new-and-improved bird mix, which is high energy, so perfect to help keep them going while finding food is tough.

We’re focusing on Feeling Good Together over the next few months at QVC, as we recognise it’s a tricky time of year. This could be taking some supplements such as the Prime Fifty range. We love these, as it’s a great way to get a whole bunch of nutrients and vitamins in the whole family in one tasty drink.

Maybe it’s grabbing a Fitbit to work on getting those steps in, or it could be just grabbing some lovely soft and warm pieces of clothing to make you feel snug.

We’ve got these and much more happening on out website, so do take a look.

Before I go, I just wanted to share with you a self portrait Izzy did for her school work today using watercolours! Proud mama moment! Bless!

Take care and I look forward to seeing you all soon on the telly box.
Much love,
