Pastimes

Hiya! I do apologise for being radio silent for the past couple of weeks – it’s just been a bit of a rough patch. Work is going great, but getting used to the commute is a bit of an effort. It has got a lot better now as I’ve put some new music in my playlist and I’ve started to bring my Kindle along on the train ride so the 25-30 mins I spend on the train just fly when I’m captivated in whatever I am reading. I have, for the past month and a bit read the first 3 books of a series called “Girl in the Box”, which you would love if you’re on the geek camp and you like all the Marvel and DC comics and other things of sorts. After finishing those three first books I have decided that I HAVE to read “Me Before You” as I’ve not had the chance to go to the cinema and watch the film – so until it comes out on Blu-ray, the book will have to do. I’m a big fan of reading the book and then watching the film, anyway. I do find the book quite touching, funny and quirky in places and in less than a week I’m halfway through – I almost did not get on my train because I was so captivated by it!

When in Worcester…

Bonjour, mes amis!

It’s been a while since my last blog post and I have to say I’ve missed writing – must take that as a good sign! I’ve been through a whirlwind of feelings, with a lot of stress but also excitement and happiness.

We’ve just had an Agent Conference at work, about two weeks ago – also, our first one! – and while so many things could have gone wrong, we pulled together as a team and managed to see it through gracefully and successfully. We have had an amazing feedback from our agents and a lot of things to learn from and change for the next one. However, I won’t be here for the next one as I’ve just got a new job! Oh, the excitement and the angst!

But that’s not what I’m going to write about today. Today, as the weather has gone dark and dreary again, I’m going to take you on a little imaginary trip around sunny Worcester, and share with you some of my favourite places, in case you ever want to visit.

The one with the birthdays

I can’t believe it’s already the middle of April! Time flies so fast when you’re having fun! April is a month full of my friends’ birthdays so there will be many reasons to celebrate and have fun. This past weekend has been the biggest of them all with the birthdays of two of my best ones from Uni. It’s been a great weekend, filled with fun, adventure, yummy food, drinks and lots of laughter and giggles!

We all went paintballing – it’s safe to say I was thrilled and excited as well as extremely scared and anxious when they first told me about this, having heard a lot of stories about bruised bodies and such. But then I thought to myself that I have to snap out of it and give it my best and it really was great fun! I have to say I went straight into combat mode after the first couple of games and I have enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Continue reading “The one with the birthdays”
