Mum’s Day fun
Had a really nice Mother’s Day with my bubble – son, daughter-in-law and Blake, last weekend. My son decided to try some of the fab Gatineau Anti-Ageing Gommage, and Blake thought she would help him with the peeling off bit! His face looked lovely afterwards. 🙂
Plus, I managed to see my Mum, who lives next door! This is a picture from a while ago, and we had a nice catch-up over the balcony this week. She wanted some more fish oil for her Mother’s Day pressie from me! I got lots of compliments about my mum from this picture, as you can imagine. 🙂
Miss Lolly lots. We did a FaceTime while opening her presents for me, which was a Cozee Home robe that matches my living room, and a lovely cushion with Nan Nan on it. Can’t wait to see them again, hopefully in April.
We’re not far away from the clocks going forward – woo hoo! Cannot wait, when evening walks will be more easy. Went out with my sis on a long hour and a quarter walk, near me in Banstead recently, up hills and down dales. On a make-up free day! The sky was a dream for landscape artists. It has been one of the longest winters ever, so days like this with a bit of sunshine makes them more bearable, don’t you think?
Did you get your sticker?
Another Tuesday, another session at Epsom vaccine centre, and this time I was volunteering on the side of the already-vaccinated. They need to sit there for 15 minutes after the injection usually if they are driving, so they know they won’t have any reactions. Then I give them a sticker! Really funny seeing grown-ups’ eyes light up at getting a sticker! Another good week. They have Epsom grandstand until the middle of May apparently, then the GP hub side is moving to Leatherhead hospital, and the mass vaccination side will move to Sandown racecourse apparently. I will hope to do it ’til then!
Obviously lots of Mother’s Day posts went up on social media this week, and it included this picture of me, my mum, dad and sister when we were little, which has been colourised by my niece Stephanie as a pressie from its original black and white. 🙂 How lovely. 🙂
Top frock – Nina Leonard TSV Monday
One of my favourite silhouettes is our daily deal on Monday – the super Nina Leonard trapeze dress, in a colour-block style. I’ve got several of these in different patterns and I love the shape – so flattering, especially if you’ve got bigger hips like me! Love the pockets as well, so don’t miss it, launching Sunday 9pm & midnight.
Had a binge watch of Unforgotten series two and three this week. Historical crimes solved, and lots of relationship dramas to make it compelling. Very watchable, all on Netflix. Plus more Ginny and Georgia – a multi-layered family drama for a dropout southern belle single mum of two kids with different dads trying to give them the life she never had. Funny and original.
I have started watching a couple of other shows too, but I’ve found myself feeling drawn towards the ones that are shorter – ‘limited series’ as they call them! Otherwise, I get completely sucked into the long, drawn out series. Although I am tempted by Line of Duty’. Any recommendations, let me know!
This week, Will sat down with Dr Paul Nassif, and next week, its the turn of Grumpy Gardener, Joe Smith. You can listen to them all here.
Check out this sky! And see my social media for lots more including #Thursdaybantz Facebook live, I did an extra one this week, as well behind-the-scenes at QVC!
Book of the week
Home on Folly Farm by Jane Lovering is just out. Jane is an author on my regulars list. I always follow and buy her books. This latest one is all about a retreat to the Yorkshire Dales where the heroine Dora is escaping her ex, her troublesome family, and her old routines… Until the past catches up with her! Just acquired this latest one on audiobook and it looks good!
QVC top deals for the next seven days
Friday (today) – go here to see what’s left of the Elemis four-piece Dynamic Resurfacing skincare collection (if there is any!). Such incredible value given how much just the SPF Day Cream is on its own! Catch it while you can, and if you’re in time, there’s a whole Elemis hour at 6pm with me.
