Flowers R US

Friday 25th Jan

Trevor was interviewed on the Fox Business Network TV channel this morning, broadcast live from London to the USA. The topic was ‘Effective Management’ and the simple steps that managers can take to be effective in the workplace. It was Trevor’s first TV interview and he had no idea of the questions. He did really well!

Wednesday 30th Jan

Other than the above, it’s been a really quiet week for both us. February is quite busy for Trevor but it will be mayhem from March onwards for both of us as bookings for our ‘Trust Me I’m A Patient’ workshops are flying in.

The weight-loss regime feels like an uphill struggle as I’ve only managed to lose 3 pounds in a month. Oh well, in the words of the US country rock band Lonestar, “Walking's easy when the road is flat.......the Good Lord gave us mountains so we can learn how to climb”.

On Friday, we’re going to see a woman about a dog. Watch this space!

To make up for a short blog post, here’s something trivial. If I was a flower, I’d be a dandelion: not much to look at but sturdy and can take root anywhere. (I’m also a tasty treat for guinea pigs). My husband would be a carnation: attractive, fragrant, great value, long-lasting and available all year round.

If you were a flower, what type would YOU be?

I would be a Chick weed so that I could get under everybodys skin and irritate the blue blazes out of them.

Hi Rocky, I just read that that chick weed is also possibly hairy towards the base :-)

What a lovely flower you are Daisy. Thanks for the link!

Steve said...

Well done Trevor! Not sure what kind of plant I'd be but definitely a hardy perennial!

Annie said...

A hardy perennial Steve? I bet that's what you say to all the girls!

Thanks Steve - it was a good experience and an insight to how quickly things are put together for TV. I arrived at 10.10 am in the Fox studio and was back in a taxi heading to Euston station at 10.35 am - no rehearsal, 5 minute briefing and straight into it. Fox is a very slick organisation. I enjoyed it.

Yours in compost

Trevor Carnation :-)

Trevor has natural screen presence, when's he getting his own show ? I could be a guest ! :)

Thanks Andrew – very kind of you - I will make you my first guest when I get the show – how does your diary look in the year 2050? :-)
