Hey Bettylicious Babes
Time for me to update you on a couple of things that went on recently. I was featured on the BBC Money for Nothing Programme. I received a email back before Xmas last year. They told me all about the programme and I was familiar with the concept. They were looking for a buyer for a couple of bags.
Loving something a bit different and mad about recycling and sustainability, this got me interested. They explained I would have to be filmed receiving the bags, at a place of my choice. So I racked my brain to come up with the right place,something other than a boring no windowed office. My friend Sarah Whiteside had a vintage style cafe and record store on the Harbourside called Revolution. I contacted her and explained the ask of the BBC. She was fine with it so we were set to film.
On a VERY rainy February day I rocked up at Revolution in a gifted dress from Lindy Bop looking like I was ready for a Vintage style summer party. Sadly the rain had dampened my hair and there was no hairdresser around for miles (typical).
We did our bit of filming, a few times(five in fact) and that was done back to day to day running of things. I had the bags and stored them away until the programme went live on daytime BBC.
Months later I got notification( 7 months) that it was going to be on the next day. My five seconds of fame about to be launched. I sat and watched it and had to wait right to the end and my daughter (love Her) laughed her head off saying it did not sounds like me. Great! I think I had said the same line over a few times and it sounded a bit unnatural.
The bags were listed on the website the dress on Ebay to raise funds for Charity. The Alzeheimers Society in honour of my Dad.

Much love Betty xy
