New year news



Hope your new year has got off to a wonderful start!

It's always nice when a parcel turns up from QVC. This week I took delivery of my other half's Trespass jacket (it was last week's TSV) and a few days earlier my Charlie Bears OTO arrived… just adorable!

It's been a fairly busy week at work and I'm set for a few days off now. My Dad is coming up for the day from the Isle of Wight to visit. He's a brilliant gardener and generally a really good all round, 'DIY-er'.

I haven't told him yet we'll be spending an hour or two re-felting my shed roof 🙂 The bad weather last week stripped half the roof bare. I'll make it up to Dad him by taking him out for a lovely bite to eat!

I mentioned in my last blog how I've been visiting the gym regularly. Well, so far I've been every day this week! Granted I do spend a fair bit of time chatting to the gym instructor, but still, it's a step in the right direction, although I don't appear to be moving my feet too much!

I'm really looking forward to my first shift, back on air, this coming Monday (16th Jan). Ali K and I are launching Diamonique week together. The show starts at 6pm and runs for 2 hours. I hope you can join us. It'll be lovely to work with Ali. We last worked together, a few months back, with her first show, when Ali first returned to QVC. That too was Diamonique!

Take care see you soon… oh, and wish my Dad luck with the re-felting of the roof shed!

    I am loving QVC at minute loving the Jewellery and of course the gorgeous Charlie Bears (wish I could buy them all) lol. Hope your Dad gets on alright with the shed roof.

    Hi Charlie
    Love getting my QVC parcels so exciting especially after Christmas, I also had a bit of roof damage due to the high winds here in Edinburgh I must say it was a bit scary, thought I was going to lose the whole roof but thankfully it stayed on? (already lost my roof back in 1998 boxing day gales the roof blew off and smashed straight into my next door neighbours house it was awful). But on a happier note I too am trying to get back into fitness I am really struggling just can’t get motivated. My pilates machine is sitting their glaring at me and I know I should so today I am being very strict with myself and have started the diet and about to do some keep fit. Will be watching you and Ali tonight whilst on my pilates machine?
    Best wishes

    Hi Angela, thanks for getting in touch.
    Good luck with the healthy regime… Is there a sport you’ll enjoy? I love tennis, squash and now rock climbing! Wow, what happened to your roof puts my shed in the shade some what!
    Take care and here’s to a healthy 2012….!!
    Best wishes
