Hiya, hope all is well.
I've mentioned it in passing in previous blogs, but on a more focused note – where has this year gone?!
October is just around the corner now. I remember January and February of this year like it was a few weeks ago. I'm also wondering where the last ten years has gone – it's raced past.
I joined QVC in January 2000 and I remember my first show vividly. I was so nervous. It was a Monday morning and my first hour was 9am, and the show … Jewellery Outlet!
Since then I think I've amassed in excess of 5,000 hours on air (some rough number juggling on a calculator going on here)! I'm also roughly calculating that's over 40 million words spoken!
I also recall my first purchase with QVC – a Morphy Richards breadmaker – but since then I've lost track! I've dipped into all departments here over the years … Charlie Bears (of course), beauty, technology, jewellery (many, many times!), the list goes on and on, and most recently the arrival of the South Sea Pearls 'One Time Only offer' I picked up from Gem Day last weekend.
I'm still trying to sort out my mobile phone (you may have read previously how my phone encountered custard … I don't recommend it!) so until that's sorted I'm a little limited on getting some photos for the blog!
If you have any theories as to why time seems to be going so quickly I'd love to read them. A friend of mine thinks time is being compressed and therefore speeding up! Thus, time is speeding up! However, because everything (according to his theory) is speeding up, it's all relative so we're not really aware of it (although, maybe our subconscious is!). Quite a theory I know! It reminds me of a question that was presented to me years ago: if travelling in a space craft at the speed of light, would the headlights show the way ahead?!
Take care and see you soon
