A special thanks to Gail (a regular contributor in the comments section) who sent me this rather apt note book, as you can see, for my birthday! Thank you Gail – I loved it x
I will use it to perhaps write down some of the Gail and Marian ditties and rhymes!
As a generally 'glass half-full' man – I try and keep my blog upbeat and positive, but I wanted to take a moment to mention that whilst 2013 has been a wonderful year for me personally in many ways, having worked on some exciting shows - of which I'll elaborate on more in my end-of-year blog – 2013 has also been a very emotional year for us in QVC Broadcasting.
We have said farewell to no less than four of our wonderful work mates and colleagues who have tragically passed away. So, before I sit down for my Christmas/birthday lunch I will raise a glass in salute to my 'Absent Friends' as I'm sure many of you will also be doing in memory of your absent friends and loved ones too.
Although I'm not back on-air until the 28th for a 3-hour Gem Fest with Jill Franks (oh ohhhh!) – you may see me having fun with some jewellery on Christmas eve or day!
Be happy! Be sober-ish! Be healthy and in the words of Dave Allen "May your God go with you".
