...and I have been non-stop! January definitely feels like it has been a looong month, but at the same time, I have been involved in some amazing projects and I have some great ventures in the pipeline too!
It all started after New Year when I had some exciting offers in regards to this blog, beginning with the TLC Plan from Activia. I never actually said this in my posts but I would just like to thank the brand and pr company for asking me to take part in this. Four weeks after their first email, my whole outlook on eating has changed and most definitely for the better, so thank you! And a massive thank you to every one who read, commented on and liked my posts; as always, your support is GREATLY appreciated! I have some more very exciting plans coming up in the near future too which involves some entertainment reviews and interviews, so keep your eyes peeled for those!
Another highlight of my month, which I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, is my talk at East Coast Media's Media Industry Week! My tutor from my journalism degree, @rosereiki, asked me to go back to my old stomping ground to give a talk to the students about my time at the Grimsby Institute, my work experience and my career now - the same talks that I was attending just a few years ago! I was incredibly nervous; I had an hour to fill (and I am definitely NOT a confident public speaker) but luckily, I feel like it all went OK and I hope the students that attended enjoyed it. It was a very weird experience, to be completely honest, but at the same time I'm very pleased that I said yes and did this!
January has been a fantastic month for Mr Ultimate Coddy too - he's only gone and got himself a fab new job! I first met Daniel when I started working at Walton's - he was the Web Developer and IT Man - and, after a few lunch times walking around the near-by shopping centre together, we started going out and the rest is history! Now he's going to a great company so he can further his talents as a brilliant web designer - I'm so proud. Of course, it will be a bit strange not working with him any more, but I really am so happy for him, and I will see him every night when he comes home from work anyway... He has also promised to write another guest post for me, and from the sounds of it, it's not to be missed!
And how are everyone's New Year's Resolutions coming along anyway? Have you given up yet?
I will admit, I haven't stuck to mine like I probably should; I haven't been to the gym with @ultimatecoddy in a couple of weeks, I have been a little bit naughty with my new diet this week too and my finances haven't quite gone to plan but I really don't consider this giving up. I am not sat here thinking 'Yeah, this is over, I give up' - I've slipped slightly but I want to get back on track. On the bright side, I am still loving my new camera and can't wait for more opportunities to showcase what it can do!
If you have been following my posts over the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed that I've bombarded this blog with TLC Plan updates, but now that it is over all will be returning to normal as from Monday.
Thanks for reading!
