My last few days off were somewhat disastrous with an emergency visit to the vet for our two Cairn Terriers.
They managed to get hold of some of dad's medication from his suitcase. The first I knew about it was seeing half chewed capsules across our back lawn. We were so worried not knowing if they had or hadn't eaten any of the medication. We called our vet on the emergency number and were advised to take them in.
Misty and Bramble were both given an injection to induce sickness followed by a special meal to help absorb the medication. They were kept under observation for the morning. Misty's heart rate slowed considerably and the vet was considering further treatment when, fortunately, things began to return to normal. The veterinary care was amazing and both Misty and Bramble have made a full recovery! They've just celebrated their first birthday and they're both back to their mischievous ways! Phew! It was such a worrying time and I've gained a few more grey hairs.
This week has been so busy at QVC. I had a call from my scheduler asking me to be on stand by to do an interview. Well, after a few days of waiting it was confirmed I'd be interviewing Matt Goss! You'll remember him I'm sure, from his days of Bros – nearly 30 years ago!
I was given his album to listen to. In all honesty I didn't know what to expect. Well, it's nothing short of outstanding! It's already receiving great accolades and reviews. You can catch my interview and Matt's two performances this Saturday evening (28th Sept) in Debbie's Saturday Night Gifts show. Nearer the show I'll tweet a more accurate time of when it'll be on air. My Twitter is @mecharliebrook.
Matt's studio performances were brilliant and he is such a lovely person, a real gentlemen. Our very own Claire Sutton delayed her journey home and joined us in the studio to grab a quick introduction with the man himself. Claire promptly tweeted the photo saying how gorgeous he was and that he smelt 'delish'! Enough said!
Speaking of Saturday, I'm on air at midnight with our new TSV. It's from Lenovo and it's a 10.1" tablet. Lee Hobein will be keeping me company. It's a fabulous package we've put together for you, I hope you can tune in!
Destination Gems returns Tuesday at 8pm…. It's not too late to enter the competition. To find out more just click here.
Also, if you've been missing Ralph and Honora Pearls I'm launching the new TSV this coming Wednesday 2nd October at midnight.
Ok, better dash. Time to walk the dogs, grab a bite to eat, clean out the wheelie bin (don't ask!), shower (needed after the wheelie bin!) then head to work!
