Braver and fatter

March 25, 2013

My ducks are getting braver and fatter. Every morning now they are quacking at the front door for breakfast. I recently bought a sack of food so lets see how long it lasts. Have called then Fred and Wilma.…

Tea at the Ritz

March 22, 2013

On Wednesday, I had a wonderful afternoon experiencing Tea at the Ritz with my fellow skaters, Andy, Gareth Thomas and Robin. Gareth very kindly organised it as it was Robin’s (his dance partners) dream to have tea at the Ritz. Afternoon tea at the Ritz is an institution in itself and served in the spectacular Palm Court it really does make an unforgettable afternoon. The assortment of food we were presented with was certainly impressive and everything was, as expected…

The Ducks are back

March 22, 2013

So all is well in our little garden life. I woke up last week and heard so much quacking outside… and gloriously it was Fred and Wilma home at last. It was like they had never been away; they made so much noise just to attract mine or anyone else’s attention to come out with their food. Although they forage near the water for their food, they also feed off the ground, hence that’s why our little friends visit us.…

So Britain’s Animals also have talent!

March 18, 2013

One thing I love about my line of work is the variety… and Wednesday was a perfect example of this. I have kindly been invited to be part of the jury panel of ITV’s new and forthcoming programme, ‘The British Animal Honours 2013’. The programme is celebrating Britain’s most extraordinary animals and the people who dedicate their lives to them. The animals are selected and voted into a variety of categories, including entertaining and funny animals, inspirational and loyal ones…

Chocolate always does the job

March 15, 2013

What a week I have had. It has been so busy. I came home from Dancing on Ice rehearsals on Saturday to a few Pre Mother’s day Gifts and a beautiful meal at Bill’s in Guildford… which is my new fave hangout. I also was presented with a beautiful chocolate cake… I think they are trying to fatten me up after all the skating. What a lovely family time – I hope you all had such fun.…

An actress in the making

March 13, 2013

On Tuesday night we had a family outing to support Claudia in her school play. It was a production of Princess Ivona by a Poilsh playwrite Witold Gombrowicz. A small gang of us including me and Grant, Steve, Lily, Amelia and Della went along; and we were all very proud. Of course there were the initial nervous worries for her, (as no doubt she had for me on Dancing on Ice), but she was wonderful. She looked suitably confident on…

A night with the stars

March 10, 2013

I think it’s always good to try and experience different things… and even better if it doesn’t cost too much. So, why not go and be part of a TV audience. If you’ve never done it before, it’s certainly an eye opener and something to cross off your bucket list – (with only your travel costs to incur as another major plus). You might meet your favourite stars; or at the very least get a glimpse of them in action…

Never a dull moment, even in an office environment

March 8, 2013

Something else that has been keeping me busy this week is helping a large company I know refurbish their office. My passion for interiors has been further invigorated in this wonderfully located office just off Regent Street. My eyes have been gloriously opened to a different kind of furniture. I have been living and breathing office furniture and some of it can certainly be used in the home. It’s impressive what creative but functional pieces can be bought for the…

As Brand Ambassador for Create and Craft I am just very pleased that I find them so inspiring and am proud to be part of it. Also my blood is pumping at the prospect of my work with…
