Morning mist, Jack Frost and me squabbling with the kids at 8 am in the morning about wearing a jumper, tights and finishing their porridge. 

We must be heading to winter. There are books I want to read by the fire and sugary treats with kids on a Saturday night in front of the TV. 

Such romance, however, already seems to be squished between the hectic PR life of parties, events and trips to see the festive lights. I think I've exhausted Chris Cringle and bent my credit card and we are yet to reach December.

It was with utter delight I opened a letter from Berkeley Homes inviting me to spend a weekend in one of their millionaire apartments with a full concierge service. Choosing my favourite person, my 9-year-old girl, we packed our overnight bags and headed to our new weekend home called Wimbledon Hill Park. 

We were served a three course meal in our new home by a private chef, watched our favourite film, The Greatest Showman in a private cinema and jumped gleefully in our new beds. The next morning we woke up to a peaceful Wimbledon surrounded by woodlands and the song of cheerful birds. 

My daughter and I cherished the time together, yet it was soon time to adjust back to cooking and washing ourselves up and the noise of a full fun family with the addition of two little boys. 

Monday morning brought a fresh surprise from the Polka Theatre. They have invited me and my children to their VIP party of Polkas new production on the 8th December to watch The Wind in the Willows followed by an after show after party with the cast. Anyone can book this experience but not everyone caught them house hunting in Wimbledon Village last week. 

I was walking to my office when I felt I was being followed by a rat, a toad and a badger. I soon realised, they were not following me but heading to Knight Frank estate agents to give them a huge basket of fruit and chocolates to say, 'Thank you' for supporting their show. 

Life in PR is quite fun, and yet there is always a serious side and this time of year is a great way to support local charities who look after Merton's most vulnerable. I was delighted to get a phone call from the agency Andrew Scott Robinson asking permission to use a photo I took last year of Wimbledon Village at Christmas. In return, they have generously donated £500 to my charity of choice, The Veterans Voice, which supports veterans dealing with addiction and mental health through accessing The Sunshine cafe in Wimbledon chase that offers an array of art and music and coffee to those who want to leave their own heads for a few hours and meet others who are also struggling.

The end of the week, however, brought a business hat to my table. It was the Global Entrepreneur Week and Merton Chamber invited me to guest speak at Metro Bank to share my experience as a female entrepreneur. 

As founder of three companies, I have enough stories of ups and downs to keep a crowd occupied and decided to tear up my script moments before, to speak from my heart about my personal journey. RyGas Founder Ryan and his partner Sarah spoke after me and shared their incredible success story. It was a fantastic evening and look I forward to the Merton Chambers Christmas lunch next week. 

In the meantime, I have no idea what this week will bring, but I am already planning my Christmas tree from Pine and Needle and asking the Wimbledon Brewery truck to help me pick it up. 

For next week is my daughters 10th birthday with mine a few days before and the house will surely be a mix of unicorns and baubles. 

Until December Countdown starts,

Wishing you a few moments of peace.
