Sleeping on the job!


BrambleHello! Well, as I write this the weather is glorious, infact, our two dogs have come in from the garden as they're finding it a little too warm today. The picture is of Bramble, who has decided to make use of the sofa instead of lounging on a patch of grass!

I mentioned in last week's blog the missing hole for our rotary washing line! Well, I was determined to not buy a new post to sink into the grass, so this is what I did! My family thought it hilarious when I was looking through photos to see if there were any pictures featuring the rotary washing line. Well, as they laughed I kept searching and finally found a picture. I managed to triangulate the position of the hole… and success… I found it! Much to the continued laughter of my family!

Imperial topazThere's still time to enter my destination gems competition. It's a little bit of fun and I just love the prize our gem team found for me. This is a piece of Imperial topaz (pictured). To enter, simply tweet me a picture of you wearing your favourite piece of QVC jewellery. It doesn't have to be a professional shot! Tweet the picture to @mecharliebrook. All the terms and conditions can be found here. Good luck!

Speaking of gems, my next Destination Gems show is on Tuesday 30th at 8pm. In the show we'll be focusing on highlights from Gem Day. Not to forget, more on the competition and of course the 'reveal'.

I mentioned at the start of the blog… 'sleeping on the job' and that's exactly what I'm doing! I'm launching our Northern Nights Today's Special Value on Monday 29th at midnight. A pair of eurofeather pillows….. They're fairly similar to a pair I already have… Love them! Hope you can join me…. In the meantime I'll keep trying them out! Z z z z z

Charlie and DaleTalking of sleeping on the job… I actually did once when I was presenting a radio show through the night! On another occasion, when working in a studio through the night, I was so tired, I fell asleep standing up! I woke again just as I fell over!

To round off this week's blog, here's a recent picture of Dale and me fooling around. You can see why we're rarely allowed in the building together!

Take care and see you soon,

Charlie x

    Hi Charlie.
    Bramble looks so sweet in the photo [ a case of butter wouldn’t belt !!].
    So glad you all liked the latest photo’s. I’ve been trying to get a photo of her waving at the window [ she been doing it for some time]but you don’t see the true affect—I’ll keep trying though. Bella seems to be ok with the wheelie bins but hates shopping trolleys, baby buggies and ladders [ not sure why !!].
    Loved the ” Gem Day” but didn’t buy any thing this time around. The ” Landscape Opal” remineds me of flying over the Great Barrier Reef—fantatic.
    I’m sending you a couple of photo’s for the competition of me wearing my 2 fav: rings, 1: of my 50th birthday present from every-one and the 2nd of my first ring I brought 18 years ago from the ” insider club” and it’s still as good as new. I know you said to tweet but as you know I don’t tweet.
    Looking forward to the next Destination Gems.
    Bella say’s a big whoof [ 2 little whoofs to Misty and Bramble] love Debby

    Hello Debby and thanks for getting in touch. A big special whoof to Bella!! I look forward to the latest photo! Little Bella is very photogenic, I struggle to keep my two still half the time, although Misty is beside me sound asleep right now! I would love to visit the barrier reef, how exciting!
    You might enjoy twitter…. It’s lots of fun!
    Take care
    Charlie (and a double whoof from Misty and Bramble!)
