Well the last couple of weeks have been pretty full on, hence a somewhat late blog.
I always say one of the things I love most about what I do is the variety. And these past two weeks have been no exception.
Broadcasting is always a joy, and in my monthly visit to BBC Radio London I talked about the history of Mews Houses with the wonderful Jo Good. Hot on its heels came a 24 hour broadcasting marathon at QVC where I launched my SS19 Homewares Range and was thrilled to get rave reviews for the new Matte Satin Bedspread.
Later in the week I travelled to the Midlands to visit a family run factory making furniture, which was a fascinating insight into a traditional manufacturing sector and one we are hoping to work with in our own business.
Politics was writ large in the week as I attended and spoke at several events in Westminster relating to business and of course, debated my fair share of Brexit as well, but then who didn’t?
Somewhere in all that I hot footed it to the gleaming spires of Cambridge to see a friend for formal hall in the 15th century dining hall at Jesus College and squeezed in listening to an amazing piano recital at the Steinway Hall in Marylebone.
But the highlight of the week was definitely the trip to No10 to celebrate International Women’s Day. In the company of some fabulous female entrepreneurs, including Make up guru Charlotte Tilbury, I was able to have a brief chat with the PM and to thank her for all her support of Make It Your Business, and like everyone there, marvelled at her stamina and cheerfulness.
The week ended with a swishing party with political girlfriends, at which we swapped unwanted clothes and raised a glass or two to a very eventful few days.
Like I said, never dull…
