time does absolutely fly by!

I can’t belive it’s been almost 3 months since my last post (sorry if there are any avid readers out there, probably not!) I’m now totally stuck in my new job as Production Manager at The Creation Agency, the people I work with are ace and there are a few massive projects on the go – one going live tomorrow – eepps!

Amongst other things over this barren blog period I have:

  • been to 2 great weddings and got some fab ideas for mine
  • had a birthday – which I conveniently managed to spread out for a whole week and eat a lot of cake
  • bought a bike and now cycle to work most days (minimum of 3 times a week – extra money saved from not buying petrol going straight into the wedding fund) The first few times it took about 30 mins but I’ve now found a few short cuts and must be getting better as it’s nearer 20 mins now.  (Don’t worry I take a safe route to avoid the Redway attacker in MK – no scaremongering please)
  • had a fantastic weekend in Skegness on my sisters hen do – highlights include the comedy of  ‘Graham Gold’ providing entertainment for 2 coach loads of grannies  .  Grab a Granny dancing follwed and included one 82 year old who said it was the first time she’d been on a hen doo! bless!  The weather was also very kind to us for a morning at the beach – including a swim in the sea! hen doo pichen do pic 2

Back to college tonight…

First class of my CIM Professional Certificate in Marketing, Module 1: Essentials of Marketing starts tonight at MK College. I’m slightly nervous about the whole thing. It’s not just the going back to college, it’s meeting new people, new situations and concentrating from 6-9.30pm every Monday for the foreseeable future! But at least I feel fairly prepared for the hard work that it’s going to be and in my preparation I have organised the following…

1) Got a new notebook from Paperchase, any excuse to browse stationery and I’m there. I did refrain from also buying (with the justifications) – a pencil tin (it’s an adult course after all), a variety of coloured pens (because I have thousands) and a magazine bag (I’ve got one already!) which is all pretty strict by my standards!

2) Discussed with the OH (other half) about food arrangements for Mondays. He’ll be out training and then have a steak, so not exactly demanding, I’ll just sort myself out when I get back in (fish finger sarnie for quickness I think!)

3) Accepted that all Monday nights for the next 13 weeks (and then 13 weeks after that on Module 2) are going to be spent at College, concentrating.

4) The 90mins between work and rugby training on a Wednesday night, will now be my study time (will have to check I can stay late it the office…)

5) Need to find another study time.
