Crikey! This morning I have been filming for BBC Spotlight, the local news channel. The young journalist had spotted the article about me in The Times last June. She phoned me this morning and asked if she could do an interview about how the postal strike has affected my mail order company. The house was a bomb site so after a 30 minute frantic rush round to get it looking half presentable I was ready for my close up (not!). I had a nervous sniffle and it all felt quite surreal. It's on at 6.30pm this evening, eeeeeeeeeeeeek!

Pin It

I bet your house looked beautiful! I think you can watch stuff from that website, so I will keep checking back to see if it's been put up, as I don't think we get it here - at least not for Devon. Well done you!

Not sure if we get that, but presumably I'll be able to view it online later!

Good to see you yesterday - even if it was only briefly!

It wasn't anywhere near as bad as you made out it was going to be!!! Brilliant interview - well done! And the fabrics looked even better than they do on your blog, and you looked nearly as good as you do in the flesh!!!! Hee hee.
