How are you all? Did you get to enjoy the extra bank holiday? I appreciate bank holidays don’t mean quite what they used to with so many people not working a traditional Mon-Fri. As it fell in Half Term I took the week off while the kids were off school, and also so that I could enjoy any local festivities.
Our local area had a fantastic street party and all the pubs and cafes all joined together to take it in turns to put on entertainment. There were DJs and bands and hog roasts, ice cream and face painting and everyone was up for a good time. The girls wore their corgi T-shirts and Ivy went full-on jubilee with red, white and blue hair spray and tiara along with a frilly red net skirt to set it all off. She even had a plastic sceptre! It was a great day and really brought our local community out and together.
One of the bands played from the balcony which was definitely the main event. Whatever anyone’s feelings are on events like this, I don’t think you can disagree that there’s nothing quite like community coming together. I know QVC went all-out with a great weekend of offers too, I hope you enjoyed all the lovely shows and fun!

Todays Special Value – Laura Geller
The Laura Geller 5-Piece Collection launches this Friday 10th June as our Today’s Special Value. Here’s me with a full-face look using this kit, the only thing I added was mascara. It’s incredibly easy to use, you don’t have to be a make up artist, I’m certainly not!
It includes the always popular Balance N Brighten in shades Porcelain through to Deep (I’m wearing Medium), Blush N Bronze, Kajal Longwear Eyeliner in Burnt Cocoa Kohl, Italian Marble Lipstick in Bellisima and Spackle Skin Perfecting Primer in Bronze.
I hope you have some nice plans coming up, the weather is still pretty hit and miss. We had an incredible storm the other night, which was directly above us, the lightening shook the house and scared the life out of the kids, I’ll admit it gave me a fright too.
We lost power and lots of people had surges which fried their electronics. The local church’s cross was struck by lightning and split in half!!! Quite a night, thankfully that’s passed and hopefully there won’t be anything like it again soon.
Here’s hoping for more sunny days.
Lots of love
