My first pet…



Ok, what's happened to our summer? As I write this, it's pouring down with rain. On a positive though, it's much needed water for our gardens. Let's hope things dry up a little for when the kids break up from school.

Had a great weekend on QVC – I think the Brook household is now home to the most famous hamsters in the UK! We had a lot of fun on QVC with the TSV camcorder and when on air we played back the footage of Rosy and Popcorn (our hamsters) throughout the day!

Having the new additions to the family reminded me of my first pet. Fred the goldfish! I won him when I was around 7 years old at a funfair. He lived for what seemed like years. He was then followed by my first hamster named Hilda -she was adorable. Sadly, hamsters only live a few years, I remember being so upset when she passed away.

Spikey was my very own cat, such a personality, he was great – and a real companion.  He was just like the cat 'Felix' from the cat food. You may have seen the adverts on TV. It's amazing how attached we become to our lovable companions!

Have I ever mentioned how much I like presenting food shows on QVC! I'm really looking forward to 5pm this Monday 19th July. The show is called 'Kings Realm Premium Food'! We'll be bringing you top quality meat and poultry from the West Country. In preparation for the show, I'll be trying some out over the weekend – purely, for research purposes, of course..!

Take care and see you Monday.

    I love Hamsters. I have got 6. 3 syrians and 3 Russian dwarfs. Would love more but having 6 cages around is enough. Shame they can’t live tog.
