Thanks for your all of your comments on my post-holiday blog.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer – yes, the weather’s a little mixed but generally it’s OK, isn’t it?
I’m away from the Q for a few days this week – lots to do at home and the kids' dreaded exam results will be in. I know it seems that no sooner I’ve returned to work, I'm off again.
To a degree that’s true, I’ve only been back three weeks, but I had quite a bit of leave to use up and it seemed a good plan to take as much of it as I could whilst the weather was good (hopefully).
We popped down to West Sussex to see Mum and I cut the hedge in her back garden (eee's a good boy!).
Tracey took the picture above of Mum and I on the Prom – the number on my Polo shirt is not my age!!
Last week I was given some Pet Munchies for Toby to try. I thought it would be fun to produce a video of Toby choosing his favourite.
I enlisted the help of my daughter, Ali, and the resulting video was a pastiche of the brilliant Pathe style newsreels and public information films from the 40s and 50s.
The music and voiceovers from those days were priceless and no, I don’t remember them first hand!
My son, who had never seen those old newsreels, thought that my trousers had ridden up and just didn’t get the gag – I hope you do though.

Last week saw the launch on QVC of the fantastic Bamix of Switzerland kitchen blenders. I had the pleasure of presenting the show and the phones lit up from the word go.
We sold out early in a couple of the options, only to find that our buyers were frantically trying to get more stock, whilst I was actually on air. It was frenetic for all concerned, but luckily we were able to get more stock and so hopefully didn’t disappoint any customers.
Debbie Flint and I have learned that we are both down to present the Saturday Night Gifts shows again this year – we had a lot of fun with these shows last year and this years' series looks set to be just as good, if not even better!
More news on the shows as it becomes available…
I entered my photo for the Thompson & Morgan QVC presenter Lily Challenge – I’m glad I’m not the judge as all entries looked pretty good to me. I think the winner gets to name the bulbs, I’ll let you know who wins as soon as.
Before you say anything – yes! I look and indeed was, half asleep and obviously forgot to put on my shoes!
What amused me was that everytime I looked down at my legs, I saw the legs of the lady sitting opposite me (if that makes sense!), much to the amusement of Stacey the stylist.
‘Til next time, stay happy and well.
