I’m on a day off today and, typically, the rain is battering the windows! Where has summer gone? Anyway, there’s not much we can do about that so I thought I’d write a quick blog before getting some work done around the house… I’m staying indoors today!
I’ve been out running again though, of course; numerous runs including another half marathon in the bag since my last blog, and I’m now over the 700 mile mark of my 1,000 mile 2019 charity challenge. The most recent event was called “Run Forrest Run” and the medal was a fabulous Forrest Gump themed one. I do like seeking out the smaller, quirkier races to enter… my next one is a cracker and involves CAKE! I’ll post some pictures after I run it!
I’ve loved working with Ruth Langsford again after her recent time away from QVC and we had a hoot during our last show. Do YOU know where your “weenus” is? Or that you have two of them? Well, weenus is actually the word for the loose skin on your elbow. I’d known this for a while but was reminded of it by one of our producers, and informed Ruth about it during our show. For some reason the word tickled us greatly and we just couldn’t stop saying it. One of our regular viewers, Rory MacKay, put together a little compilation video so I thought I’d share it with you – thanks Rory!

Have you seen the new voucher offer at QVC? It’s running until the 8th of September; full details can be found online but basically if you spend £100, £150 or £250 during the qualifying period you’ll earn a £10, £15 or £25 voucher. Shop and save at the same time! And speaking of shopping, here’s a quick peek at a couple of upcoming Today’s Special Value offers for you. I’m launching both of these and they’re fab!
On Friday 23rd (and don’t forget we now pre-launch our Today’s Special Value offers at 9pm the previous night) we will have the gorgeous Jude Large Triple Compartment Tote Bag from Lulu Guinness. This is a brand new tote bag shape from the brand just for us at QVC and comes in a choice of four colours: Black, Red, Navy and Clay. It will be available in three interest-free instalments and as always comes with a dust bag to help keep it looking beautiful. A great size for a work bag if you fancy a new one for September as I sometimes do (for some reason I still think of September as a new period of the year, that “back to school” feeling, and I think of it as getting a new “school” bag…weird, I know!).
As I said, the rain is pounding against the windows as I write this so rather appropriately we also have a Today’s Special Value offer on a waterproof coat coming up on Tuesday 27th. The Joules Coast Mid Waterproof Cotton Canvas coat is a new, midi length for even more protection against the weather than the shorter styles, and comes in a choice of four great colours which are just for us at QVC: Mid Blue, Khaki, Lilac and Berry. It has Joules’ lovely, signature striped lining and will be perfect to take us into autumn.
Happy shopping and have a good week. See you soon!
