What fun we had on a Facebook live on our page the other day, go here to see it, as the presenters are being asked to take part in the 21 Questions challenge. They include things like most memorable moments, most embarrassing moments, three things you would take to a desert island et cetera, really random and really fun! Look out for more in the weeks to come. Plus, this is a view from behind-the-scenes (kind of) in our little social media studio. Lots of other people are getting up to stuff too to amuse you, explore the stories from all the presenters on our website. Plus, look out for the nightly #Singalongadebbie on my Facebook page (see below!)
If you’re reading this on Friday 24th, an alert: ending today, the Dyson Pure Cool Me purifier fan – the last day to save an extra £50 is today! If you want a breeze of cool air that’s also really purified, it’s a great idea.
Plus, the big Devon pies brand making an appearance on QVC! Full info below.
Well, Facebook clever, more like. Look at this picture of library books that some witty librarian has arranged whereby the title spell out a message! Read across from left to right, top to bottom, and you will see it!
Oh my goodness, we had such a fun week! Fiona Brackenbury from Decleor being the most game, dancing and singing along to Eurovision songs. Go here to see and enjoy it, we do it on my Facebook page every night! The night after, Ali Keenan also joined me for a spot of harmonies with a couple of big band songs including ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ and you can guess what the dancing consisted of! Also this week, we did country, Bond film themes, and a Cilla and Lulu night!

Book of the week
Another former guest has a new book! Congrats to Amy (Lamorna Ireland) who visited us in Devon to finish her novel ‘Unexpected Beginnings’ in February (when Cathy Bramley was here too.) It looks fab!
“Heartwarming, an easy read! I read this book in one sitting. It was so easy to read and I found myself engrossed in the lives of the characters. The predominant setting, in a cider farm in picturesque Cornwall, is the perfect escapism. A must-read for anyone who likes romantic, family orientated stories. It’s beautiful. I eagerly look forward to what Lamorna Ireland writes next! An excellent debut novel.”
Plus congrats to our own Jackie Kabler, whose next novel ‘The Perfect Couple’ went up to the Top 40 in the UK Kindle charts this week! Very proud of her.
The Take, Hustlers and Three Identical Strangers.
Well, needless to say I’ve had time to watch some nice telly, and a lot of the Netflix and Amazon Prime films are really good.
Hustlers – award nominations for Jenny from the Block, with a film based on a true tale of strippers who run a scam in New York. Really, it’s the story of the relationship between the main women. Heart-warming. 8/10. The Take – Idris Elba and Richard Madden… Need I say more? Set in Paris, a pickpocket has a run in with a CIA agent to partly hilarious and partly dramatic results. If you enjoyed the Bodyguard, you will love this. 8.5/10. Three Identical Strangers – three real life triplets, separated and adopted by different families when they were babies, reunite after a fluke. You think that’s the main story… but watch on, you will be gobsmacked as to why. 8/10. And I’m obsessed with The Marvellous Mrs Maisel at the moment, and of course Outlander is back on… I’m a happy bunny!
Next week – Quiz – Watch it and see if you think the same as me!
This week’s podcast is with the lovely Ali Young.
Evie loves Daisy
Look at this adorable photograph, lovely little Evie, my niece, new owner of Daisy dog (as Evie says ha ha.) Daisy is having a whale of a time, being properly treated and looked after by this cute little six-year-old. Makes me feel very happy for Daisy. Although I missed her this week when I popped back to Devon briefly to pick up some stuff from my home. A house is not a home without a dog 🙂
Tips for the garden
Here is my one, and it’s a practical one rather than a clever one. If you’ve lost the end of the hose, or the spout doesn’t turn down properly and it’s pounding your small seedlings, when you water, pop the end of the hose in a watering can first and then you can control where it goes more easily! Also thanks to two other people who gave me theirs, including putting a hollow yoghurt pot over a plant you want to spray weed killer on to protect those around it, and also adding Epsom salts to normal compost to make it ericaceous! These are for Michael Perry, who will be putting a compilation together. If you have any others let me know, preferably on my social media or put them in the comments below!
Meanwhile over in Lorna‘s corner lots more lovely lighting ideas if you go to our website and have a look – the set of 10 solar lights are particularly popular, worth a look on QVCuk.com!
