Game, set & match!

June 23, 2011

My nephew Freddie (the blonde one) and his team mates Mina, Juan and Claire represented The Vineyard School in Richmond at a borough tennis tournament… and won! There was no champagne or strawberries & cream (just juice and bananas!) but my sister tells me it rivalled Wimbledon for excitement… but then again she is rather biased!…

The cat’s whiskers

June 19, 2011

Thank you so much Ms CJH for your recommendation following my blog comment on my pesky cats. I’ve been on to a website called www.vetuk.co.uk and ordered plug-ins and spray of a product called ‘Feliway’ which has had rave reviews in the UK and states. It’s a pheromone which makes cats feel happy and content in their new home and not want to wee on my carpets or attack my furniture. With 4 cats it’s difficult to work out which one it is but I…

Caramelo rediscovers his dignity!

June 16, 2011

Further down the page you will see Caramelo wearing a turban!!! I am pleased to say that he is now towel free and his hair is his crowning glory. This is a picture taken by my friend Sally last Sunday of Tilly my Goddaughter feeding Caramelo honey from a wooden spoon. For caramelo this is like candy floss and his treat for enduring a wash!…

Balcony moment

June 16, 2011

Now I know why there are so many girls hanging around the entrance to my condo building – Robert Pattinson is staying here while filming his new movie ‘Cosmopolis’ in Toronto. The film comes out next year and is about a multimillionaire who goes on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. I’m a big fan of Twilight – I’ve seen all three and can’t wait for ‘Breaking Dawn’ which is the final film released on 18th November 2011.…

A champion day out

June 13, 2011

One of the most beautiful women to walk this earth and I certainly looked up to in the 70’s when I was the worst dressed teenager ever was Alexandra Bastedo. My God how can one woman be given so much, perfect figure, beautiful face thick hair and golden tan. She was on bill boards promoting oil, magazines couldn’t get enough of her she dazzled us in the original Casino Royale but the show that made this talented actress famous and was…

Amelia’s prom night

June 13, 2011

The School Prom/Dance is something we’ve picked up from the states and how I wish it had hit these shores when I was at school! Amelia had hers this month (she’s the one in the middle in gold). How beautiful do those girls look? But here’s a thing, normaly Amelia is plundering my wardrobe but the dress she is wearing I bought for her birthday with the one stipulation that I could have one wear out of it to present a prize…

Not so purrrfect presents

June 13, 2011

Having a few cat problems at the moment… as you may know I have 4 black rescue cats acquired over the years. They are all house trained and apart from the odd accident I’ve never had any trouble with them. But since we’ve moved there have been one to many little ‘presents’ I’ve had to deal with. I have truly done everything to normalise their existence- beds, food, people in their lives are all the same. Cuddles haven’t ceased… in fact they…

Cut the carbs & run like the wind!

June 13, 2011

I’m not one for weighing myself but due to my job I have to have insurance ‘Fit to Work’ medicals at the beginning of each contract. The reason being that  if I become ill there is no one to replace me and therefore if a shoot has to be cancelled the cost is enormous. Thankfully I have only ever had 2 days off in my ‘telly’ life due to illness and long may that remain. The medicals though mean I have to…
