First Days

Had my first day at work yesterday, never thought it was going to be easy and it was very much hard work. It wasn’t even on a level that I was expecting but that seems to be the theme for this year and I suppose is always going to be theme. It isn’t what you are expecting that knocks for you for six but the unknown, the unseen, the side swipe that does the job. However it is about learning to deal with that and be able to cope with that as no matter what you do you are never going to be able to remove that element in life.

Variety is a big key I feel as breaks the days up and that more has been accomplished.

December Challenge

Until it reaches the 1st of December I am not very christmassy however soon as that date arrives I love everything about Christmas. The countdown, the tree, wrapping presents, watching the films, the food and being able to wear christmas jumpers. Just everything about it really, I am like a big kid and totally believe in the magic of it all. Can’t wait to see the coca-cola advert and then the holidays really are coming!

Trip To Manchester

Just got back late last night from a trip down to Manchester for an induction course for work. Train down on Sunday evening and then back up Monday evening. The photos are ones that I took on my phone while there; mostly of what I had to eat and drink but a few others!
