GMW – Cancer Research 5K Pretty Muddy Race

Cancer Research Fundraising

I am so proud of our little team (Gilly’s Eagles) we all completed the 5K mud run for cancer research and completed all the challenges involved! We all had a lovely day and want to tank everyone for there support!

We raised a whooping £619.50 before gift aid and before Barclays Bank matched our donations so we raised roughly £1239 before gift aid has been included.

GMW- Looking back in life at my Career

Looking back at where I was to where I am now… Job wise!

I have been doing a lot of thinking recently about all I have achieved careers wise… I stared off working in McDonalds frying burgers, improved to Greggs making sandwiches, progressed again to ASDA on checkouts and to suddenly being unemployed for several months! I new these jobs wouldn’t last and that I didn’t want to be stuck in these places for the rest of my life, I wanted more, I was just unsure of what “more” was. In this time of unemployment I managed to find a training company who took me on as a business and administrator apprentice… I won’t bore you with all of the details to why I left my previous jobs or about my volunteering jobs, and what happened but the main point is in less than a year on I am doing a job I love and now company administrator/team leader! Massive step up from McDonald’s and unemployment!

After my first stage of employment I started working in an office in Hayling Island for this training provider (PhAce the Future)… Very local to me! But that office closed down and instead of making me redundant like they did with other members of staff they relocated me to Crawley (Phoenix4Training)! I cannot believe they wanted to keep me! I am very sad to have seen that office closed for many reasons… I now have to travel 2 hours a day on the train which I absolutely hate again for a number of reasons… But I am very grateful to still have a job and a job I love doing! It’s a shame I get stressed out sometimes at work (not because of my job but a couple of new colleagues…)

But little did I know this would all change again for me…

GMW – Gel Nails

Gel Nails

Once again I have taken on a new hobby/craft! This time I want to make something of it! I have gone through Essential Nails and ordered a Gel Career Package! So excited! I feel I could turn this in to a little side business, earn a bit of extra money and something I enjoy doing!

My first set of nails did not go well (Shocker):

imageBut it’s not all that bad, I am still learning on this home study course and really enjoying it! It’s been a month now and I am on my 21st set of nails and there is much improvement not perfect but if these were my nails I would be happy: Continue reading
