I was at QVC yesterday doing the 2pm - 4pm slot.
My alarm was set for 4:30am - but Ben woke us up crying at 3am! He seemed ok, just upset. So we got him into bed with us and although it was 3am, it was lovely - he snuggled right into me and touched the side of my face then kissed me!!! It was amazing and made me melt - Why is it that you kids can do that - melt your heart completely with one word or movement! He is truly amazing.
Thankfully he soon fell back to sleep - But I just couldn't, so just enjoyed watching him sleep and giving him lots of kisses until it was time to get out of bed at 4:30am!
My wonderful Dad came to pick me up 6am - I am 34 years old - but I am still not allowed to drive down to London and back by myself!! If Chris cannot come - my mum and dad insist that one of them comes with me instead! At the beginning I thought it was silly - but now I am a mum myself, I completely understand!! Funny that!!!
We had a pretty good drive down - except for a slight diversion as part of the motorway was closed - Finally arrived at QVC at about 11am! Never mid - a Starbucks stop on the way always helps!
Had a great show - someone on Facebook asked me just before I went on air if I still get nervous before going on. The answer is definetley yes!! Nerves, I think, are a good thing - shows you care. I enjoy being on air so much - it is such a buzz! I am so lucky to be in a job that I love so much.
Me and Dad set off from QVC at about 5pm and then finally arrived hom at 11pm!! Long day - so happy to get into my own bed! I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow looking forward to a day off the next day.
Today has been fab - even though Ben was awake again shouting for me at 5:45am!
We have spent the day painting pictures; watching films; learning numbers and playing on the Wii. Ben had a little snooze in the afternoon for about an hour - and I so wish I could have gone to sleep too - but no matter how much I try, I can't sleep during the day. So, I did some fitness thing on the Wii instead!
Ah well, Ben is now fast asleep in bed - Chris is at the gym and I am supposed to be going up into my craft room to start my prep for my workshops this Saturday at the Dawn Bibby Design Studio - Don't know if I am going to make it though, need matchsticks for my eyes! Lol!!!
Anyway, best crack on - Also, blog candy is going to be up on here this week! It is quite a bumper selection so going to be open to Followers only.
Keep your eyes peeled
