On Air with the ladies

hehe, I did a quick show of my face on air today with the lovely ladies (Jinger, Christie and of course Steph). It went great - even though I did feel my mouth doing something really weird (it decided to take on a wobble). I really enjoyed it, felt excited and couldn't wait to chip in about the Gypsy - really want one. Well, wanted all of it! Noooo, didn't want to start spending this early, only my second day in. I was good, and sat on my hands, but really really want it.

Anyhow, the day was great. Steph has been brill, I've been following her around all day like a little lost sheep, and she's been explaining everything to me. I've met quite a few of the presenters today actually, and they're all really friendly (do I sound abit cheesy and gushy, sorry, excited!). Anyway, fab.

Tomorrow I'm going to have my first show. Dave will be starting us off, then leaving Sara and I to do the hour together. Really looking forward to it. I know Sara knows everything inside out and back to front, and I have already met her, so it'll be great.

Righto, going to catch up on my emails, then get organised for tomorrow, dead early start to make sure I'm really prepared!!

Glad you've had such an exciting start! I can't wait to see a show with you and Nigel - that will be a hoot! Haven't been able to catch you yet. Will you be working Sat and Sun mornings when the shows are live. I only get to watch in the mornings as I have freeview. Wonder if I can convince Phil to get sky then I can sky plus you when I'm at work! LOL!

Great to see you on air this afternoon. You were great and I didn't notice your "dry mouth" at all. Look forward to your first real day of work at C&C tomorrow and I am sure you're going to enjoy working in the team. Now you'll really be able to shine and show your enthusiasm for a product without the ever ticking countdown known as the QVC clock!LOL
All the best in your new role as a C&C Craft Presenter XX

Ooh err Leonie - Just turned on to watch Sara and there you were - was so surprised I dropped the remote control. Asked my hubby why you were on C & C (as if he'd know, doh) and he said to Google you - and I found this blog. Great to see you presenting - hope there will be much more of you on our screens. Good luck and much love, Take care - Jane xxx

What a great day for you I got such a shock when I saw you as I had no idea, I emailed to say welcome Leonie but didnt get my email read out, Im sure you will like it at Ideal World/create and craft as you actually get time to craft - I do hope you will be doing some crafting for us I will be glued to the TV, if so

Caught a bit of your show live with Sara this morning but couldn't watch it all as I had to head off to work. Have recorded it so will watch it at my leisure. You were great on the bits I saw.

Missed you yesterday as I only get C&C 8 til 1 as I have Freeview.

I did see the Gypsy a couple of times on Ideal World, but not you, just the American ladies.

Look forward to seeing more of you.

How could QVC let you go? Not that Im moaning because you walked onto that set and you were a natural. Their loss!

Leonie said...

Oh thank you so much, I'm so glad your all so nice! I'll sit down watch it and cringe - orrible seeing yourself on telly! Anyway, thank you so much for all your brilliant comments - it's really exciting, so many new things to learn, crafty stuff to see and brill guests. This could cost be a fortune!!xxxx
