Birthday blues

I remembered why birthdays suck after all.

Never mind, homemade pizza and old movies will fix things.

Good news

I've just been told that my contract has been extended until October.

Seems I was right to be feeling all that optimism.

My 31st Birthday

Is rapidly approaching, and I'm feeling strangely optimistic. I was horrified to turn 30, and I thought I'd be the same this time but I'm not. My Mam always tells me that she loved her 30s, and I'm finding that to be the case too.
I've got loads of projects that I'm working on: setting up my theatre company and applying for funding; releasing my free novella, and organising the event to launch it; trying to find new funding streams so I can carry on working at RNIB Cymru; launching the expansion of my Millennium Volunteers project in Carmarthenshire... lots of things to keep me going.

Birthdays do seem to mean less the older you get, and I'm treating this one as a chance to get loads of mates together, have a drink, then go out dancing. See? I've got my priorities right.

Meeting Jenny

I'm working late at the moment, we have two Lib Dem MPs coming in to see our Accessible Learning and Information Centre and I'm giving them a demonstration of our studios. We're plying them with cakes and tea and I'm going to try and get some transcription work out of them: mainly by schmoozing!
Wish me luck.

I'll do anything for volunteering!
