Another busy week races by at QVC. Is all your Christmas shopping done yet! I am well and truly started and picked up the Russell Watson CD from QVC this week for my Dad.
I love the way music can bring back memories. I was driving home after a TSV launch this week (it was around 3am in the morning) and I popped on the radio. A track came along which I haven't heard for years - The One and Only by Chesney Hawkes! It spent 5 weeks at number 1 in 1991, that's nearly 20 years ago!
Anyway, I heard the track and suddenly it took me back to the summer sunshine of the Isle of Wight. I was driving through Ryde in my yellow Ford Fiesta – that was my first car and I loved it. It had very simple engineering, to squirt the water onto the windscreen and give it a wash, you had to press a little foot pump!
Because the car was black and yellow my friends at the radio station had nicknamed it the Banana Car. I spent hours every week washing, vacuuming and cleaning that car. My career then took a turn and I headed to London. My Banana Car was no longer needed… I wonder where it is now.
As I write this, I'm looking at my schedule… we are just a couple of weeks from the wonderful world of Charlie Bears. I'll keep you posted, but as well as a Charlie Bears Today's Special Value, we have a bear coming up which means the world to me!
Take care and see you soon
