Well I've had a fairly exciting week! Last Wednesday I popped over the road to Battersea Park to take look round a special event QVC has supported for a number of years now -QVC's Sport in the Park! The event ran for four days and was run by local charity, Battersea Summer Scheme.
The days were available to those aged between 8 and 16 years and cost just £1. Now I know our skincare range is fantastic at QVC, however, I also know I didn't pass for 18 years of age!
I was visiting the event with our marketing team and was given special permission to have a go on the outdoor climbing wall. It was brilliant!
Funnily enough I took up climbing a few months ago so felt at home with the harness and environment. The four days had so much to offer including tennis, tag rugby, athletics, face painting, a high rope course and even the chance to join the circus for a day!
As you can see by my attire, I didn't really plan on climbing a wall that day! I took a couple of photos home and showed them to my children. The first thing my son said was 'Dad, you look like James Bond, that's the kind of thing he'd do in a suit!'
Now that comment really made my day, although the feeling quickly wore off when I ploughed into some household chores I think most boys (and still many of us men!) would love to be the super cool James Bond for a day! Perhaps it's time to test drive that Aston Martin Vanquish!
