It's been another busy time at QVC and likewise at home! For what seems like forever we've been sorting through the house, clearing, making a mess, tidying, recycling and deciding if we really need what's been tucked away in a box under the stairs for the last eleven years!
I've also been ploughing through the filing cabinet and shredding endlessly – and look at what I came across! My letter from QVC from all those years ago – offering me the chance to train as a new presenter!
'Dear Charlie, I'm pleased to confirm you have been invited to attend the 4 weeks presenter training audition, and possibly join mainstream QVC beyond.' The headed note paper is so nostalgic. It was also the 'branding' used on air with the sung jingle!
So, here we are over 12 years later! In some ways it seems a long long time ago, in other ways it feels like yesterday. I remember my first show vividly. It was a Monday morning, 9am and the show was a jewellery outlet… It went by in a flash!
I've put the letter back in the filing cabinet!
We promised you last week the chance to win one of three signed Sooty photos (pictured above)! To enter, simply post a comment recalling your favourite Sooty memory and we'll pop you into the draw. We'll announce the three winners next week and with the photo we'll pop a few QVC goodies into the post to you!

My next Destination Gems show is this Tuesday 26th at 8pm. We focus on one of the worlds largest gem fairs when we reveal some of the latest designs. It's a really exciting line-up – all will be revealed in the show. There are a number of stones that we don't see very often which I'm really excited about!
Good luck with the competitions!
Take care and see you soon.
Ps. I'm launching the wonderful Honora TSV this Monday 25th at midnight… Ralph is back!
