Happy Christmas and thank you

I just wanted to take a few minutes to extend my Christmas wishes to you and yours, however you will be celebrating and however much your plans have changed. I think it will be different for most, if not all of us this year, but I hope you will still be able to make the most of the situation we find ourselves in.

I feel very fortunate that we have our son, Dan and his girlfriend, Katie living with us so we will be able to enjoy the day together – really looking forward to the nut wellington that Katie is making for Christmas lunch, and the various cocktails she will no doubt be plying me with!

Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing our daughter, Sophie and her family in ‘real’ life, but we are intending to FaceTime a couple of times in the day. We are also planning on doing that with my mum. This photo was taken last Christmas when both Mum and Audrey, my mum in law, came to stay… we’d long since decided on that not being the best option for this year, but are planning a get-together later in the year when things have calmed down a bit.

Although I’m not in on the Christmas shift this year (New Year instead) I will be popping up on your screens over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in shows that we have pre-recorded, so hopefully that might keep you entertained whether or not you are shopping… although we do have some great offers.

If telly is not your thing but you like reading, and your not feeling particularly festive with the weather mild and wet rather than snowy, you could escape with my heartwarming Christmas novella, Christmas at Carol’s – it’s only an ebook though – and at the moment I’ve made the sequel free to download, but only until the 27th. It might help you pass a few hours if you’ve unexpectedly found yourself on your own.

I’ll do a proper blog next week, but that’s it from me for now, apart from to say a huge thank you to all of you who have shopped with QVC this year, have read and commented on my blogs and have sent in Christmas cards… apologies, I’m afraid I ran out of time to reciprocate this year.

Stay safe and stay well.
Much love,
Julia xx

  2. Many thanks for your blogs over the year, and what a year! Your books have also provided light reading to help me wind down. I have worked throughout as a specialist pharmacist working in GP surgeries sorting out queries and supporting doctors and nurses. Now for the great vaccination programme!

    Love to all at QVC

    Let’s hope 2021 will prove to be better than 2020

    1. Dear Anne
      Thank you so much for all you have done for all of us this past year and good luck in managing the vaccination programme… a huge logistical task.

  5. Wishing you a very happy new year Julia. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and the promised cocktails were as lovely as they sounded.

    Here’s hoping 2021 will be an improvement and we can make up for lost time with our loved ones. And thanks for keeping me company over this hard period, I always enjoy your shows.

    1. Hi Joanna
      We had a lovely Christmas thank you – I stuck to snowballs which I haven’t had for years – they were delicious (also had a couple of Baileys on the rocks) 😉
      So glad that QVC has helped in some small way during 2020 and wishing you a Happy & Healthy 2021
