Davina's mummy tummy and my cankles...
14 July 2017

Awful week for my poor joints, following the gung ho attempts at playing netball in Black Torrington on the last two Wednesdays. This week I had to sit it out, but turns out only a few people turned up so they didn’t do the usual anyway. Phew. My ankles are still suffering as I mentioned in my vlog here. It really helps if I put my feet up – literally. And all because the lady loves …exercise.

And if you want to see an amazing role model to women, exercise fanatic Davina McCall in a pic of her ‘mummy tummy’ just go here – top marks that girl! She says her skin on her tum is like a ‘shar pei’ – one of those dogs with loads of rolls. Well if I did mine you’d say ‘what is it? Whatever it is it needs ironing!’ lol. (I know, one of my oldest, but still a good one!)

Something that’ll make your skin lovely is a good serum.

Well do read the super update on this week’s QVC blog – includes a comp to win over £100 worth of AD Synergy skin serum, which can be used along with any other brand you may currently have. And the usual sneaky peeks at upcoming deals. And the full  Go here Friday late pm onwards.

Facebook has been active this week too – including some lovely creative people suggesting ideas that helped me ‘find’ my missing calendar entries on my i-phone – turns out it was a simple ‘settings’ adjustment for the sync function – what else! Lol. Also ‘like’ my official Facebook page DebbieFlintAuthorQVC  if you ARE on Fbk, to get the updates first. (And my early bird order links can be seen here – if you can’t find them elsewhere.)

Medical Detection Dogs have a big week too – with Dr Clare appearing on the BBC to announce that they are now looking into the clever canines helping to detect Parkinson’s Disease. More here. And don’t forget to come along to my concert in Devon, on September 16th at The Plough Arts Centre, which is helping to raise funds too – lovely 40s and 50s classics and show songs, it’ll be a great night.

Had a superb week at the retreat this week, with lovely guests, great meals, nice weather, a bit of successful gardening, and an enjoyable stint in the Sheepwash Village Shop on Tuesday. Also, my pal Carolyn came along for a stay and it was so nice to have a long overdue catch up. She’s a trend setter as far as the latest marketing tips for self publishers is concerned, and she makes me wish I’d never stopped self publishing my stories to KDP. Most of them are still there and I’m very proud of my author page – see it here.

Finally on the subject of books, my Book of the Week is a very exciting one – my mentor and tutor Julie Cohen – master of show not tell – has her new book ‘Together’ out this week in hardback and ebook and I’m delighted to feature it. Can’t wait to hear the audiobook read by a Game of Thrones actor. Go here to read more about it and see how to get a free sample.

Hope all good in your world?

Have a great week!
