Happy birthday, Simon!
Those of you who have been watching our shows on QVC for a number of years will know that Simon and I have a running joke about both ladybirds and 'naff' birthday gifts...the ones I give to him I'm talking about!
Well, for some reason I forgot to take it in to work with me last week for him to open and ridicule live on air, so my partner Chris very kindly offered to drop the present and card off at Simon's house.
I can just imagine his expression when he unwrapped the turquoise tissue paper to find this lurking inside! It is a ladybird solar light and will either be consigned to the furthest corner of his garden, where no-one can see it, or the bin!
I hope he has a lovely birthday with his sister and her family, and look out for his next show on QVC, which I think is the 3rd of September. It won't be with me as I am taking a couple of weeks off from work to relax and try and get a bit more of my new book written.
Thanks to those of you who replied to my blog the week before last with your stories about the furthest flung place you have seen QVC beauty products. Although technically they weren't for sale in Mexico, I hadn't specified that they had to be, so the bag of goodies goes to Caroline for the Ultrasun story. Congratulations and I hope you enjoy them.
Here's a little heads up for you. QVC are going to be launching a fantastic competition next week to celebrate our 20th birthday on October 1st. I won't give any details on how to enter but just let me say you will need to be watching your sets and/or website very closely each day to be in with a chance of winning the all-inclusive 5* trip to Mauritus.
