It’s my 13th year here at QVC!


Silver Day March 2012Hello, It's been quite a week here at QVC.

So busy, it's been great! A real highlight was meeting and interviewing the Military Wives on Monday. Such an inspiration – if you missed the performance and interview just click here!

I bumped into Dale on Wednesday. That's the only day of the week we're in work together. I mentioned in an earlier blog how we'll be sharing a dressing room at QVC's new premises.

Well, we were chatting outside my dressing room (about anything and everything…. we just ramble!) but I hope he didn't notice the room – it looked liked it had been lifted and spun around a few times, it was so messy! I'll need to discipline myself a little more when we move!

I can't believe I'm into my 13th year here at QVC! I know I often joke about time flying but I just can't think where those years have gone. It's funny because I remember my first show like it was yesterday. In fact, before my first show, I did what we call a 'walk on' into an earlier show where Jilly Halliday introduced me to the viewer.

But, I went solo for the first time shortly afterwards. It was a Monday morning and the show was at 9am, the first 'live' hour of the day. It was a jewellery show and to this day I don't know where that hour went. It seemed to start and finish in a split second!

So, here I am all these years later and I roughly estimate I've presented around 6000 hours for QVC since I first joined… now that is a scary thought!

Jewellery quickly became my passion and I've had a very special affection for it ever since. I've even been lucky enough to design a few pieces for QVC over the years.

I'm really looking forward to a wonderful day coming up this Tuesday 13th March – Silver Day. We have specially themed shows throughout the day and I've been truly spoilt. My first hour is at 3pm with Brazilian Serpentine (this is a premiere show), followed by Amber Discoveries at 4pm (if you know me, you'll know that Amber is a real favourite of mine)

Then I have an hour off (probably just enough time to grab a delicious strawberry milkshake from our coffee shop, which I've just discovered, made with real ice cream!) then I'm back on air at 6pm with Simply Diamonique. Do hope you can join me.

I have a few days off now and am planning to hang a couple of pictures, but I still can't find my drill (I mentioned this several blogs ago!). I bought these pictures nearly a year ago, and I love them, but where's my drill?!

Take care, have a good weekend and I'll see you soon.

Ps, this weeks amazing fact

Planet Earth weighs around 6000 trillion, trillion tonnes (it's true, I popped it on my bathroom scales!)

Take a look at our wide variety of silver jewellery.

    Hiya Charlie,
    13 years on QVC its along time do you feel part of the furniture now? On your message before your last message. Charlie bears hadn’t done a fox until Franklin but Roxy is a gorgeous name for a fox. I think you present the charlie bears well :-).
    Time does fly by though I have been at my job since I was 19 I now 25 so time does fly it has for me.
    Hopefully you will find your drill to hang your pictures. Enjoy your few days off.
    Take care Rebecca x

    Hi Charlie, I met you at the Beauty Bash earlier this year when you were drawing the raffles. I was the one who said she wanted a kiss intead of the prize then walked off with both! 😉 Anyway, you don’t look old enough to have worked that long, let alone, just at QVC … CONGRATULATIONS! Re Dale, I have met him too at an event and know he is a bit of a perfectionist so please keep that dressing room tidy! Don’t get to tune in that often but no-doubt will catch you all on one of the “late” shows of the day sometime.

    Hello Rebecca. Thanks for your reply. Oh my word! I completely forgot about looking for the drill. Maybe next weekend! I can’t believe it’s my thirteenth year at QVC. My shortest job was 1 day!
    Glad you enjoy Charlie bears so much.
    Take care!

    Hi Charlie, congratulations on thirteen years at QVC! The time flies when you are having fun! What was your job where you only lasted a day?! I’ve just ordered the micro fleece sheet set as I already have the duvet set and love it. I’m watching Elemis which I love too. Cheerio, Christine xx
