I can't believe that February is upon us already, which means Valentine's Day is just around the corner! You're sure to find something special at QVC from chocolates to jewellery and beauty to fashion!
I mentioned a few blogs back how we're having our annual tidy through, it's really invigorating to de-clutter and make more room Also, it's a chance to recycle and give to our local charity shops.
Whilst sorting through I came across this cassette tape. It suddenly struck me (after some calculations… without paper and pencil I hasten to add!) this tape is from 17 years ago!
What also hit me is that I no longer have a cassette deck to play it on! Thankfully I have the CD versions so was able to take a trip down memory lane after all!
I also dug out some vinyl (I no longer have a turn table!) an old 35mm camera (run out of film!) and a VHS tape of a TV series I did for Westcountry TV in 1998. I'm longing to watch it but… that's right, I no longer have a VHS player!
Speaking of technology I was chatting to Dad and he's finally arranged to have the Internet at home. He asked if I had a spare laptop or desktop computer he could have as he'd like to go online! Well it's not the kind of thing we have spare floating around the home, however as it happens, we have a fairly old laptop he can have to get him started.
We carried on chatting and I asked Dad if he secured a good telephone/broadband deal with his provider. He seems to think he has but told me how he was a little embarrassed when the customer care team corrected him and said WiFi isn't pronounced 'wee-fee'!
I'm hoping Dad will get onto Twitter, I think he'd be really entertaining to follow! Thanks if you're following me by the way. It's great to hear from you and keep you updated with what's coming up and the latest on the pups! I'm @mecharliebrook if you'd like to follow :-) So when the time comes to present another laptop on QVC, I'll see if we can Skype Dad on the Isle of Wight, for a chat!
Looking forward rather than back to my next Destination Gems show! It's a truly magical line up this Tuesday 5th February at 8pm. Among others we have Morganite, Tanzanite, beautiful Ammolite and of course the reveal which is truly, truly unique! Oh, and by popular demand the constellation pendant (pictured left) is back!
Hope you can join me.
Ps. Oh, by the way, Monday the 4th, at 12 midnight, I'm really looking forward to launching the Northern Nights Today's Special Value… It's deliciously soft!
