I live just a few miles from work, near London, and we've been blessed with some incredible weather recently (I hope I'm not tempting fate!)
This is our cherry tree pictured, finally in blossom! Every year it produces the most incredible crop of the tastiest cherries. When we moved in we had no idea it was a cherry tree, it was a lovely surprise that first summer. To be honest, we don't get to eat many of them as the birds tend to get there first and eat them before they're ripe and ready to pick! I wasn't too happy about it at first but like my daughter said… 'Dad, I think they probably need them more than we do – and we can always buy some more from the shop!' It's a fair point!
Work has been hectic and a lot of fun. We try to show you behind the scenes when we can. This picture is of Sam getting ready for the Northern Nights show we recently presented together. You can make out the monitors in the picture. The one on the left is known as 'TX' and shows us what you're seeing at home. The monitor on the right is the preview monitor, which, more often than not, shows the shot the director is likely to cut to next.
Some busy shows coming up including my next visit with Destination Gems this coming Tuesday at 8pm. We've had quite a few entries for our Imperial Topaz prize (pictured) It's a bit of fun and so easy to enter. Simply tweet me a picture of you wearing your favourite piece of QVC jewellery! Full terms and conditions can be found here! Also in the show we'll have another gem reveal. I hope you can tune in.
I thought I'd round off this week's blog with this fabulous concoction from our local ice-cream van! No need to wait for summer for a treat like this!
