The last couple of months have been so hectic! After leaving my job, I began freelancing, working within the Ignite 100 offices in Newcastle. It was so much fun and inspiring being surrounded by so many creative and talented minds. I also didn't have to be in the office 5 days a week which meant lovely mornings spent drinking coffee at my desk in the window, resulting in lots of wintry pictures (See above).
As well as freelance work, I kept myself busy writing my column for DN magazine and also Christmas articles for Concept Recruitment's blog. I've also realised I need to start carrying my camera around with me more often, as my new phone camera just isn't up to scratch and I've been going to some lovely places.
Recently I've been to Barnard Castle to choose a Christmas tree. This is a family tradition, we go & pick a tree, either from the woods where it is then cut down for you or we pick a pre-cut one from the stables where they hang from the roof, then we all go get a hot chocolate with marshmallows. It was my brothers 21st party also in December, we made him a Paul Smith 'mini' cake and then last week my Mom and I took a trip to Bowes Museum for their Christmas market which I would blog more about but I bought a lot of Christmas presents for people so I won't! News just in, I confirmed my new job today which I will be starting in January... I'm very excited, more details to come soon on this though.
