Hi everyone! I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who has followed my blog and who reads it. I’m now at 78 followers! If you know of anyone else who would enjoy reading it, pass the message on and encourage them to like it, it would mean a lot 🙂
Back to the blog now and my week has been eventful. Here’s some highlights…
- Zumba in a night club…
On Tuesday, my friends and I did our weekly Zumba in the local nightclub! It was so weird seeing it in the light and the floors were a bit sticky to do a few of the moves but it was a laugh and it looks like we’re in there for quite a bit longer! A friend suggested we should do a flash mob when one of our routine songs comes on whilst in the nightclub. We’d get some pretty weird looks that’s for sure…
2. Time management training
On Thursday, I went to a time management course with a colleague. I thought it was going to be pretty boring to be honest but it turned out to be pretty good. The guy who ran it was a great speaker and related all the points to real life.
He played that tear jerking ‘Up’ montage about the couple Carl and Ellie which gets me going every time. It was to get us to think about our priorities in life and whether we spend enough time doing what we love. It made most of us realise that we probably don’t spend enough time with our families or on hobbies because we simply don’t think we have enough time. The fact is we do.
We then had to apply this to our professional lives and make a clear plan of what we needed to do. It became evident that we all did have time to do these tasks, we just needed to apply ourselves and let everything fall into place. Really interesting training that has already got me changing my ways.
3. Harvest talks
This seems to be the focus of a lot of my blog posts recently and that is because work has been full of them. I got the chance to join my boss at a private school on Thursday for their harvest assembly and oh wow what an experience that was! It was a lovely school and their harvest assembly on ‘The Little Red Hen’ was the cutest. We helped load the car with a lot of donations and even got cake!
4. Years and Years in concert
I booked the tickets back in June for a brilliant £17. After waiting a totally unamused two hours watching awful support bands we finally got to see Years and Years who were amazing live! I wasn’t expecting too much after seeing them perform on TV but main man, Olly’s, voice is so chilling. It sounded just like their album and whatsmore, is they played every song from the album. You don’t normally get that in a concert and I guess it’s because they only have one album.
