We saw Star Wars day, which always makes me giggle, but it does herald the start of summer for me. The frosts we saw earlier in the month have gone and it’s allowed me to plant out some wonderful geraniums from Richard Jackson that were delivered towards the end of April. The grass is green, the hedges have been clipped and it’s all grown!
May is a busy month at the Q but it started out with a bitter sweet day on the 6th. That was the last day for my long time Morning show friend Kathy Tayler, as she has retired. Kathy had been with QVC for 21 years and for the past 10 years or so, we have presented the morning show together. I will miss her sage words of wisdom early in the morning and although we won’t be working together anymore, we will keep in touch for coffee, outdoor swims and dinners.
Kathy will be missing some of Mays’ hot offers like the supersize Ultrasun supersize Body Tan Activator and the Sunbelievable gardening pick of the month from Thompson & Morgan. I guess she will be watching from home from now on!
The pop up swimming pool will be going up next week and I have been asked to help out with the Diabetes UK Swim 22 Miles campaign this year. This is such a pleasure and I will tell you more about that next week, but suffice to say I’ll be wearing a beautiful bathing cap a lot of the time this summer!
