Christmas preparations and joyful Cairns!



Thank you to everyone who voted on which jumper suited me best in last week’s blog. The reindeer won by a clear majority!

Christmas is starting to feel very, very close isn’t it? How are your preparations going?

I’ve just placed another order, for another gift, via our web for a new Tangle Teezer! I’m not entirely sure where the last one has disappeared to? I have a feeling it may be buried in the garden! I wonder who the guilty culprit or culprits could be… four legs and wagging tails perhaps?!

Tangle Teezer at QVC

I’m often asked if as well as working for QVC, do I shop with QVC? The answer is a resounding yes! I’ve been at the Q for over 15 years now and in that time I must have placed hundreds of orders. Everything from laptops to Charlie Bears, from brownies to beauty. Speaking of which, a Charlie Bear makes a perfect gift!

Beauty, Home & Garden gifts QVC

On my QVC Christmas wishlist this year (where I hope my family are tuning in to read my blog!) is Joe and Seph’s popcorn, Thorntons Chocolates and I’ll never turn down Churchill’s Biscuits! Ok, I’ve noticed there’s a bit of a food theme going on here! On another note I’ve always had my eye on the Golden Gark Rake. It’s brilliant! Then there’s our fabulous beauty ranges and not to forget our vast array of technology too.

I’d love to know what’s on your wishlist? Do leave a comment below. Also, remember if it’s a Christmas gift you’re buying then our money back guarantee is extended to the 25th January 2016!

I’ve had a few days off this week and have enjoyed some beautiful walks with my cairns. My back surgery is healing well and I’m extending the walks little by little. I’m a fair way off from running and playing tennis but I’m pleased to say I’m definitely on the mend.

Cairn terriers to camera

I couldn’t resist showing you this snap of my cairns…

Cairn terriers looking away

…only to then take another as they were distracted by a noise in the garden and promptly turned away from the camera like synchronised swimmers! I still like to stay on top of their training and thought I’d share this little video with you too.

They’re truly amazing little dogs and make me smile and laugh every day… Yes, even if they’re taking what isn’t theirs and hiding it in the house or garden!

Thanks to everyone who is following me on Twitter. It’s a great way to stay in touch and hear the latest of what’s happening both on and off air. I’m @mecharliebrook.

In the meantime I think I’ll browse our web for some more Christmas shopping!

Take care and see you on air soon.

    Hi Charlie. Love the pictures and video of your 2 cairns. I just wish my 2 Scotties were as well trained where treats are concerned! Glad to hear that your back is slowly getting better. Take care.

    Morning Charlie.
    Bella and I loved the video of Misty and Bramble you know what she’s like [ dare I say more].
    I usually buy for every one else and forget about myself. But I guess my ” wish list ” would be any thing Almond from L’occitane, A kipling bag [ I’ve got my eye on], and of course I wouldn’t say no to another minimo Charlie Bear. My ultimate present would be a Make over by ” Ali Young” [ or should I say fantasy wish present ].
    Enjoy the Christmas shopping. I’m off to finish making my Christmas cards [ yours will be in the post shortly].
    Take care.

    Hi Chantel,
    Thanks for your message.

    They can still be really cheeky and mischievous though! I adore them!

    All the best

    Hello Debby and whoofs to Bella!

    That’s a great wish list! I think in the past we’ve had a prize for a make over with Ali. Maybe another in the future some time! I’ll suggest it.

    Whoofs from my cairns 🙂

    All the best

    I also have a cairn although she is the honey colour. I love their character. I had one similar to yours about twelve years ago and she was really funny too. Hope you recover well from your surgery. I always enjoy your shows as you inject a lot of fun into your hours. Thank you. Happy christmas.
