I’m coming back to QVC!


D-day is almost here – the 18th July!! And no, it's not just because it's Beauty Day, which of course is in itself fantastic, but it is indeed my official return to the wonderful world of QVC!!!  And what a day to return!!
Things are sooo much better now (by things I mean my shoulder). Isn't it amazing how much we take everything for granted when the body is functioning properly? Simple things like washing your hair, getting dressed, filling a kettle and even opening my own front door! All of which require two arms normally.

Well it is now with unadulterated exquisite joy that I now perform these seemingly otherwise menial tasks. Probably my most liberating experience lately has been getting behind the wheel of my car and going for a drive. Residents of the London borough of Hillingdon can sleep easily in their beds at night safe in the knowledge that it has not been deemed necessary by the DVLA for me to re-take my driving test!!
On a slightly more serious note though, I really want to thank all of you so much for all your concern and best wishes. Your kindness was never for one instant taken for granted. It is incredible what a difference it can make on of those days when things can potentially get you down, to know that lovely viewers like yourselves, people that I've never even met before, are showing how much you care and how lovely you really are. Absolutely fantastic!
Anyway Beauty Day is our date then and I look forward being back on your screens at 11am for some Bare Escentuals. Excuse me, but could I have arranged this any better or what?  (sorry for those of you who don't know, I am the biggest Bare Escentuals fan ever). Well I'm off to wash my hair again, so I'd better dash.

I know, I know, now I'm just showing off!!

Lots of love,

    That is such welcome news Ann. We have missed you so much , “HOOOOOP” earrings have been just hoops.
    Looking forward to seeing you on 18th on Beauty Day.
    I have had health problems and am just starting to enjoy the simple things, which, as you say that we take for granted.
    It`s good to be alive. Bring on the Beauty treatments, we love them.
    Best Wishes

    Noticed you had not been on the screen for a while and have passed many comments about where and how you are. Pleased to hear that you have not been extremely ill and that you are back to good health now!!! Unfortunate that you are coming back just in time for your birthday, as you share the same birthday as me!!! Happy birthday for the 29th and I hope that you manage to get some time off air to enjoy it!!! Pleased to hear you are coming back.

    Dear Anne
    Great news – I looked through the TV schedule earlier this week to see if there was any sign of you, but didn’t check Saturday.
    I hope you enjoy your first day back, certainly looking forward to seeing you again – in the meantime enjoy those last few days of freedom!
    Take care
    love jane

    So glad you are returning, Anne. You have been missed. Doesn’t the world look a much better place when you recover from an illness? Enjoy.

    Welcome back I thought that you had left QVC you are a lovely presenter and I am so pleased to know that you will be back on screen soon

  20. Sue July 11, 2009 at 11:33 pm -  Reply

    So pleased you’re coming back Anne, you have been sorely missed. I too have connections with Hillingdon, I was born at the Hayes and Harlington Cottage Hospital, now demolished and replaced with a nursing home. I have a photo (circa 1952) of me in my pram with my Mum, at the side of the then only runway at Heathrow, waiting for a plane to land so we could cross the runway and give the dog a run in the fields on the other side!
    I have put the BE show with your triumphant return into my EPG planner to ensure I do not miss you although I hope to be watching all day anyway because QVC’s beauty days are always full of brilliant products at great prices.

    Hi Anne glad to hear you’ll be back on our screens next week, that gorgeous Scottish lilt has been very sorely missed. Simon has got on you!

    Hi Anne, slight mistake in message. I meant Simon has got nothing on you!

    Dear Anne
    So pleased to hear you are fit and well enough to return to Q.V.C. You will be happy to be back on air, you will need to take it steady to start with, before you are feeling 100% again.

    Hi Anne, read your blog this morning so pleased to see that you are coming back on Saturday. So glad your feeling much better, I have been ill for the last 3 years and know how frustrating it can be. Looking forwards to seeing you back. Keep well. Love Sue Bond

    Good News!! Looking forward to seeing you back Anne. You always ask the sort of questions I want to ask and give the info on size, colours etc right at the start, which is great when you just know things are going to fly. You really have been missed.
    Take it easy when you get back – even if it is Bare Escentuals!!

    Hi Anne, what a lovely surprise to see your happy smiling face at long last back with us -‘fraid James Watson’s cookery programme had to go on the ‘back burner’ till next Saturday!!! Phoned my daugher immediately to tell her to tune in to QVC as she had been asking how you were and when you were returning. Do continue to keep well and keep out of trouble!!! From one Scots lassie to another. Love, Lorna from Hamilton.

    Apologies, Anne, for obvious spelling mistake i.e.”daughter” – it’s these long OPI Nail Envy treated nails that got in the way!! Lorna.

    Hi Anne, what has happened to you? Was looking forward to your friendly face on Beauty Day but you were a no-show. Hope you have not had a relapse and will return to our living rooms very soon.
    Take care – Eileen.

    Hi Anne,
    It was great to see you back on screen, I loved your bedding hour with Kim, you looked so comfortable in that bed.
    I’m so glad you’re better and wish you good health in the future.

    Hello Ann. i’m so glad you’re o.k and well.I didn’t know where you were and you suddenly popped up in front of me on Beauty day! I love listening to you! One of my favourite times was when you wore them magnifying glasses that you could change over on a headband thing! I don’t know HOW you kept your face straight! Anyway,I’m SO glad you’re back. Love Sue.x
