A relaxed weekend – just hanging around!


Me on the ceiling!Hello! We're well into March and I am loving the feeling of spring! In fact were celebrating spring in style here at QVC, I'll come onto that in a moment.

This is rapidly becoming a favourite past time of mine – indoor climbing. I'd never thought about taking it up until I saw just how much my children love it. It's very addictive (and tiring!).

We were first introduced to climbing at an extreme sports festival a few years ago. The RAF were there with their mobile climbing wall. My children queued up time and time again, to have another go! It's a lot of fun – the picture above is of me on the ceiling!

I'm still fairly new to climbing, my children are like spiders and make it look so easy. I'm hoping for my birthday (subtle hint… I know!) to get a new chalk bag from my children. At the moment I borrow my daughters, when we head off together, but I don't quite carry off the flowery design!

After a few hours of climbing it was off to the tennis court for an hour or so where my son made me run after the ball non-stop. He found it very, very funny, my legs however, didn't! So, it was off home, for a nice relaxing bath!

Amber cufflinksBack to work on Monday, with of course Silver Day on Tuesday and what an amazing day it was! I was thrilled and so grateful when my guest from the show, Amber Discoveries, presented me with a gift of Amber cuff links (pictured above and left).

A big, big thank you to Marzena.




Wearing amber cufflinksThere's a bit of a running joke here at QVC. The jewellery buyers know how much I love my cufflinks and whenever I pass by their desks I drop another (and not very subtle!) hint for more cufflinks! I have quite a collection. We will hopefully bring these cuff links to QVC in the not too distant future.


So spring is very much in the air. Walm, balmy days, and hopefully many of them, ahead of us as summer approaches.We're gearing up for our three day 'Step Into Spring' event! It all starts this coming Wednesday 21st March.

Wow, are we really near the end of March? I'm particularly pleased as I'll be on air with Ralph with the launch of the Honora Today's Special Value, Wednesday night at midnight! I won't give too much away, but I think you may just love this TSV!

Take care and have a great week and weekend!

    Hi Charlie, I loved the show on Amber and have bought 5 pieces. The cuff links are very elegant and please bring them to QVC.Would love to buy them for my husband.
    In fact we should have cufflinks on every jewellery progamme.

    Hi Charlie, I love your fascinating stories re the space ship and stars, I just cant get my head around that can you?! I love looking at the stars and moon and have taken photos of the moon with my Fuji camera from QVC of course! Matt Trim would be impressed! I love the IT shows on QVC and the guests you have are great. Re putting up pictures, I just tap in a picture frame hook with a hammer and it’s sorted, no need for a drill! Cheers, Christine xx

    Hello Charlie, only saw half of the Greenpan show last night, which you presented in your inimitable style!! Was getting quite concerned – did you ever get anything to eat?
    Waiting for your next Diamonique show – love it.

    Hi Charlie.
    Caught you doing the late show of Charlie Bears [or should I say Bella told me you were on]. Do you know when the next Charlie Bears are on ?? I have a couple of photo’s of her and her Larlie Bear. I wanted to send them off to you before now but I’ve had a bad eczma problem which got infected. I’ll po them in the post with an Easter card.
    Saw your latest photo of yoyr-self hanging up side down—not one for the faint hearted [ don’t think I’ll try that one.]
    Bella say’s whoof, whoof.

    Hello Christine, lovely hearing from you. Space is so vast, it’s amazing isn’t it. I too have a fuji camera, I’ll try and take a photo of the moon as well!
    Take care

    Hello Jan, thanks for watching the green pan show…. You’re right, I didn’t eat a thing…not like me at all..! It was a busy hour and a lot of the food being demonstrated was being cooked from raw, so I didn’t get much of a chance… 🙁
    Next time!
    Take care

    Hello Debby, thanks for getting in touch.
    I hope your eczema eases up soon.
    I’d love to show Will and Charlie your latest photos. I’ll find out when the they’re next here and pop it online. I love the climbing it’s so much fun! But, very tiring…. Some days I feel my arms are going to fall off!
    Take care and Happy Easter

    Hi Charlie,
    This is a first for me !
    I have become a Qvc shopping guru!!
    I’ve been to the studios twice now, met you on one occasion.
    I have question to ask,your daughter designed a bear for Charlie bears?
    What was the name of it ? & can you still get one ?
    I’ve just purchased my 1st Charlie bear (Duffy ) absolutely gorgeous !!
    But I loved the one I’m asking you about & remember the show & wished I’d bought it now !
    Many thanks & keep up the good work
    Sandra x
