I’m sorry things haven’t been perfect on An Ocean Glimmer at the moment, I’ve just been a little preoccupied with moving to a different part of the United Kingdom. Some of you may know that I used to live in Plymouth, a city in the South West of England. I have lived here my whole life, I have ever only known one house, so it’s been a pretty big thing to move five hours.
As I was receiving offers for interviews around the London/Reading area, I thought it would be good to live with my Uncle in Aylesbury. This does mean though I won’t be living with my parents, sisters and the puppy dog, who I will miss dearly. This all means more differences in my life, something I’m needing to get used to. But it’s all a part of growing up, I’m really excited by this especially to experience it with the partner
I feel like I’ve finally settled in and things are looking bright for myself and Peter, who also moved from Plymouth to live with myself in Aylesbury. Which means a new chapter in our lives together, something that I’m hoping will go well. Seeing as I lived in Plymouth for 21 years, I thought I would sum up some of the things I would miss.
I’m not sure about you, but July has gone pretty quickly for me, it’s already the 2 August with only a couple more months to go until Christmas! I’ve really enjoyed writing these Favourites posts, as it’s a perfect way for me to remember what I’ve done, just like June I’ve been pretty busy this month. For the past couple of months, I have loved taking part in Neverland Blog Tours.
If you haven’t been following An Ocean Glimmer, Neverland Blog Tours were created by Jenny the blogger behind Jenny in Neverland. She hosts a range of different Blog Tours for all kinds of book genres, including Young Adult, Romance, Thriller and Mystery, I’ve been very fortunate to take part in a couple of her Blog Tours including this month’s Blood Bank by Zoe Markham.
Today is a very exciting day, if you know me, you’ll know exactly how much I just love chocolate! Friday 28 July is National Milk Chocolate Day, for one day of the year, you’ve got a good excuse to pick up some chocolate and of course, eat it, very exciting right. Don’t worry if you’re on a diet, make the most of today and have some of your favourite milk chocolate to celebrate.
There are many different ways to celebrate National Milk Chocolate Day, maybe you could go to your local cafe and order a scrumptious hot chocolate or even bake a chocoholic’s dream cake. You could even pick up some of your favourite chocolate bars and have a movie night in with some of your friends. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I’ve recently moved to Aylesbury.
For the past couple of months, I have been apart of one of the most amazing opportunities. Theatre Royal Plymouth created a scheme for bloggers in Plymouth, with no previous experience in the theatre industry I jumped at this opportunity and then I received the amazing news that I gained a place on the scheme. With there being such a big interest in the scheme, the Theatre wanted to make it a quarterly opportunity, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
Now the Spring term is over, it is time to say goodbye to the Theatre, as ten new bloggers are getting their backstage experience. Before saying farewell, I would like to chat about the scheme, first up! What did I enjoy the most? It would have to be seeing parts of performances that you wouldn’t normally, as well as meeting cast members. This was the whole aim of the scheme, we were never there to review the performance, we would speak about our backstage experience.
A couple of weeks back, I received some good news, I was accepted for work experience that I applied for with the PR agency, Teneo Blue Rubicon. Now this was really good news for me as the company are based in London. So it’s a really good experience and something good to put on my CV.
