Hello and it’s a c-word kinda week!

I know I’ve been neglecting my blog lately and honestly, I’ve barely had time for a bath (sorry to those locals about the smell!) let alone write something on here. Coincidentally I am writing this whilst in the bath… I can hear the sighs of relief across Kent! 
Anyway it’s been a bit of a c-word week. No not that c-word, a week of needing to hire many c-words… Namely a cook, a cleaner, a childminder and a chiropractor because I have spent so long sat at my desk! And, as my friend pointed out a cocktail maker would be quite handy too. I wonder if I could also get away with a chocolate delivery company, a crepe maker, a cloning machine and Channing Tatum…! Anyway I digress, sadly I cannot afford any of these things. 

As you can probably surmise I have been extremely busy with work. I have been working on a rather large veterinary website content project this week which has taken up a lot of my time. I have also won a contract writing for a fantastic local website which I am really excited about, and I have been recommended to a colleague of an existing client that had a new project to work on. So all in all things are going really well here, I just need to find some time to put some content on my own website!

I haven’t forgotten cutting the string either and am currently working hard to shift the extra pounds I put on whilst on holiday. I will do an update on that shortly! 

Thanks for stopping by!

One giant leap for the bantam….

Okay, in the grand scheme of things it is probably not a big deal. In face to some of you it’s probably not any sort of excitement…. however, today, I finally, for the very first time, applied for a couple of writing jobs on odesk (as kindly referred to me by my new cat-crazy friend Tom ~ “Hi Tom”). Just some article-writing type jobs, but still, a big “eeeeeeeeek”! I feel a bit like Neil Armstrong might have felt when he landed on the moon, except heavier!

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have any expectation of actually GETTING them, after all I am relatively new to all this and just starting out. But at the same time, I feel like by at least applying I am putting myself out there – that I want, no damn it – WILL – write for a living in the future. Hopefully just not a distant future!

I guess all it really takes is someone to give me a break. What’s the saying, “don’t be shy, give ME a try”!

Now I just need to keep expanding my portfolio of work, but first – another cuppa!
