Hello, well things are hotting up among the presenters! A few weeks back I mentioned the gardening competition. Thompson & Morgan have invited all the presenters to grow lilies – which they'll be judging later this summer (what summer I hear you cry – let's not discuss the weather!)
Anyway, I was getting a little concerned as nothing was peeping through the soil, until a couple of days ago that is…. let the competition commence! I'll keep you posted – and any lily growing tips are greatly appreciated.
Do you believe in tempting fate? Well, a few days ago I bumped into one of the nurses from our veterinary practice who look after our puppies, Bramble and Misty. I mentioned how it's been a while since we'd visited…. well, fate tempted! Two days later we turned up with Bramble needing a 'tick' removed. I love all wildlife but my admiration of ticks has lessened somewhat. It was a quick removal and we headed off for a lovely walk in the breezy weather shortly after.
QVC has been so busy. I thought you might like some more behind the scenes pictures. This is a snap shot of Dale during his Veronese show with the delightful Ginetta. I think I was distracting them a little so I headed into Studio A and took this photo. It wasn't until I viewed it back that I realised just how much lighting we have. I don't think these lights take your standard 40 watt bulb!
When I have some free time between shows and if you need to find me, our restaurant is your best bet. We have a lovely view over the park with a large pond full of enormous fish and the occasional duck swimming by. It's a great location and astonishing to realise it's a year since we started broadcasting from our new premises.
Destination Gems is back on the 25th and on the 18th June we have our special fashion event. However, you can enter our new Destination Gems competition right away. Just like the last, simply tweet me a picture of you wearing your favourite piece of jewellery. If you're feeling camera shy, a snap shot of your hand is fine. The prize is this gorgeous morganite stone. My twitter is @mecharliebrook, but you can enter by post if you'd rather. All the usual terms and conditions can be found here!
Ok, time to dash…. I feel the need for some food….. there's a surprise!
