My mum was sorting out some old photos recently and sent this one on to me. My goodness, it’s been a while since I saw a school photograph of myself! This was a class photo taken when I was about eight years old, so I thought that just for fun I’d share it with you and see if you can spot me. No prizes, but I’ll let you know in the comments below if you get it right (hint – I’m not a natural blonde!!).
Back with the grown-up me and at work we had a great “Inspirational Women Day” at the weekend. I had the pleasure of working with some wonderful, truly inspirational women on the day, including the lovely Kate Thornton (a fellow Gloucestershire lass!). I’m a huge fan of the beautiful new jewellery collection she has designed with Bibi Bijoux, so do have a look at it on the website if you haven’t already.
I feel so fortunate to work with so many kind, supportive, funny, talented women every day at QVC. It sounds cheesy, but we really do feel as if we are part of a family; we have each other’s backs, lift each other up when we are down and cheer each other’s successes long and loud. We are so lucky too to have so many wonderful ladies out there watching us every day (that’s you!), and to be able to connect with you all in so many different ways now, via our blogs and social media. Your support and interest in us all means so much… thank you.
Finally a quick look ahead to this Saturday 14th when I’m looking forward to presenting several gardening shows, and when lighting experts Luxform will be bringing us a fantastic Today’s Special Value offer. It’s a set of ten (TEN!) solar path lights and they are BRIGHT! Each one provides five lumens (which is equivalent to the light from five tea-lights grouped closely together).
Getting ten is amazing – plenty to light up a border or a path, but I decided to put a few in a pot and use them to light up a dark corner at the side of the house where the recycling bins sit, and it has worked brilliantly. Look out for these on Saturday.
That’s it for now.
Lots of love,
