1. I Have A New Job
As of Tuesday I will be starting my new job as a Marketing Executive, although I’m sad to be leaving my old job as I got along so well with all of my colleagues but it’s onwards and upwards from here!
My new job gives me a lot more added responsibility which is obviously essential to progression in my career. And although it’s not all about money, I’ve also got a cheeky pay rise which is a nice added bonus. As a person I hate standing still both personally and professionally, so this opportunity is one I couldn’t turn down.
So tomorrow I’m going to London to see the musical legend that is Paul McCartney for the 7th (yes you read that right), time. Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a huuuuge Beatles fan and I’m beyond excited! The last time I saw Paul perform was at the Royal Albert Hall back in 2012, which was his last UK concert. Since his album NEW came out in 2013 Paul has left his UK fans waiting with baited breath as he went across the world with his ‘Out There’ tour and now it’s finally coming to the UK. With Paul now aged 72 I feel like this is probably the last time I’m going to get to see him live so I’m definitely going to make the most of it!
Yesterday I got to see my friend Kari who I haven’t seen for nearly a month. I know its not that long especially since I haven’t seen three of my best friends since August last year due to them being on the other side of the world, (SIGH, why did I choose to stay here again?), but it was really nice to catch up over dinner and cocktails, it’s suprising how much can happen in 3 weeks. We couldn’t decide what to have for dessert so OBVIOUSLY we had to pick both and have half each because why the hell not ay, who needs a summer body anyway..
4. My Week Off
So in the interim of leaving my old job and starting my new position I’ve been working from home this week and it’s been a welcome week of relaxation if I’m honest. This weeks given me the opportunity to actually tick off some of the things on my ever growing to do list. Most importantly its given me time to recharge the old batteries and have a bit of ‘me time’ which is always nice. Oh and I’ve maybe, just maybe developed a little addiction to Mad Men..
As you can probably tell I’ve majorly neglected my blog this past year, its always been at the back of mind and I knew I would get back on it at one point which is why I renewed my domain name back in December, but having so much spare time on my hands this week I decided enough was enough and that I need to get back out there. Not only that but I’ve started reading a lot more blogs recently and some of the content out there is fantastic and it sort of makes me want to up my writing game a bit yano? Obviously I’ve got a long way to go as this is only my second ‘new’ post but I’m looking forward to hopefully building my blog up and strengthening those writing skills of mine.
Hope you all had a great week, bye for now!
