So, are you getting ready for Christmas yet? It's something I don't start organising until after my son Daniel's birthday on November 27th, exactly four weeks before the big day.
It seems impossible that he turned 22 last Thursday – where have all those years gone? Actually, the last 15 of them have been spent here at QVC. I took a little trip down memory lane as I tend to do at birthdays, and I came up with this cute photo of Daniel on his first birthday. He was mesmerised by his favourite present, a jack in the box. Do they still make them, I wonder, or are they all 'virtual' nowadays??
Talking of presents, I took him into London to go shopping for a jacket he said he'd like, and we popped in to see Simon Wilson at the Butler & Wilson shop on South Molton Street while we were there. We hadn't been in there before more than a minute before two QVC viewers came in and recognised us. So, now I have witnesses to prove that I DO go into his shop, no matter what Simon says on-air!!
We also spotted Portsmouth footballer Jermain Defoe in a famous department store on our travels. Have you recognised anyone famous while you've been out shopping?
Catch up with you all again soon,
