Where does the time go?!



Well done if you figured out last week's 'just for fun' guess the picture. It was R2D2. If you guessed correctly then there's a good chance you'll get this weeks… I'll say no more!

Christmas is feeling so close isn't it?! I've just wrapped my first present for Dad. The KitchenAid soup maker. I've now lost the sticky tape – I have a feeling Misty or Bramble have run off with it somewhere.

We've just celebrated 20 years of DIY shows at QVC. Our production team put together a montage of clips from over the years featuring me using the Dandy Roller set. The three bold stripes on my dining room wall were for demonstration only and were swiftly covered up a few days later. I don't think Kelly Hoppen would have been too impressed do you?! Have I aged….? Infact, don't answer that!

Old brandingIt was a real trip down memory lane for me and to see our old 'QVC' branding really made me smile. Do you remember the sung 'QVC' jingle? It was very catchy.

It was around this time of the year I had my interview and audition with QVC. I was invited to pick any product from a vast array presented to me and audition for 7 minutes. I chose a 35mm film camera which had a built-in flash, auto focus and was complete with batteries! How technology has moved on!

My call back audition greeted me with an iron and piece of jewellery. I was very nervous about the jewellery as my knowledge was limited, but I managed to get through it. Phew! Soon upon joining QVC jewellery very quickly became a real passion of mine and still is to this day.

Ali Y behind the scenesThought you'd like this behind the scenes photo of Alison Young. Believe it or not she does seem to know where everything is in her dressing room! Ali was one of the first people I met at QVC… She quickly introduced me to a beauty regime including, of course, L'Occitane hand cream. I've used it ever since, especially at this time of the year.

I've a few days off now and have so much to do. I'm hoping to meet with some friends when taking my two cairns out for a walk and am planning to give the garden a little makeover…. Or I may chill out and watch a spot of TV instead…. Hmmmmm, probably the latter!

I'm back Monday 18th at 10pm with Dyson and am thrilled to be launching The Charlie Bears Today's Special Value at midnight!

Take care and see you soon.

P.S. I would love to see you on Twitter, I'm @mecharliebrook

    After-noon Charlie.
    Lovely seeing all the Charlie Bears last night. I didn’t buy any but did buy Will and Charlie’s book [ I thought it was really interesting]. I really hope Charlie is now on the mend. Your mystery picture is it part of an engine on a pod racer ????. I wasn’t a fan as such but my nephew was potty about it at the time. Enjoy all the food tonight.
    Bella say’s rather itchy Whoof to all. She caught flea’s from the vets and now has an infection from the treatment.
    Take care.
    Love Debby and a BIG whoof from Bella X
