So has it been great, OK or downright awful? I must admit to falling into all three camps, how about you?
I guess the awful bit was the drive into QVC at 5am on Monday and…I made it! As you’ll have seen if you tuned in, Debbie and I snuggled under our blankets in the morning show.
It took me over three hours and on a couple of occasions I certainly wished I was driving a tank with huge snow chains on the wheels! I definitely felt more toned when I finally arrived having held my tummy in and my breath for the entire journey.
I was incredibly impressed with my Emu boots with not even a hint of chilly toes, though I was petrified I’d ruin them in the snow and very delighted they survived unscathed.
QVC was a quiet place to be backstage without the huge amount of people in, but it did give me a chance to catch up with the very lovely Daniel Green, our new presenter. He was settling in and dealing so smoothly with all the changes going on – he’s obviously been involved in TV for many years.
I called him a “dish” during the Veronese show I brought to you at 3pm and spent the remainder of the show trying to explain to Ginetta Martini our guest just what I meant!
Luckily Dan’s work has been affected by the snow so we’ve managed and indeed had a blast with some family sledging! With not a sledge to be bought within the area for neither love nor money a bit of initiative was called for.
Horse feed bags from Nanny’s stables became our sledges and the pictures show the wonderful fun we all had! The addition of three Labradors made it even more fun. They were loving the snow and dived on us mid ‘surf’ down our little hill, which seemed a huge, death defying bob sled run to Tom, Joe and Maddie!
I hope to goodness you’ve stayed safe and warm so far. Apparently we have more snow to come, argh!
I’d love to hear your snow stories and in the meantime I send you lots of love!
