Hello and I would like to say a very merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone who reads this, it is indeed my first blogging festive season and I feel as if I am celebrating the first Christmas of my baby.
Starting this blog has brought me so much, most of which I thought I would never achieve, and I would like to personally thank everyone who has helped me on my way. Special mentions to Lady B, Seahorse, and Vaughan. Without them my blog would be gathering dust and I would never have worked out what to do with my life after college. When it all started I was struggling to cope with exams and was facing up to the reality that I was not going to get the grades I needed for my chosen career at the time. Blogging has given me a new focus and has opened my eyes to the possibility that maybe I am sort of good at this whole writing thing.
As a result I’m now blogging for Ouch! something I never though even possible. I have grown up and matured reading the brilliant writing of Liz Carr, Mat Fraser, Laurence Clark, Tom Shakespeare, Damon Rose, and the list could go on and on. It was my dream that I would one day work for Ouch but growing up I never thought I would ever be up to there standard, I still have LOTS to learn but my blogging for ouch has given me exposure, experience and allowed me to grasp that maybe one day I will be good enough.
Thanks to all at Ouch and everyone who has welcomed me into the blogging community.
At risk of this sounding like a corny award winners speech (no I have not one any awards) there are a few more people I need to thank for all there help this year.
Dan, you know who you are, you are the best friend anyone could ever wish for, and amazing at spelling, which we all no is my biggest downfall, you will one day co write my biography with me which will of course be called “brave special different” and be a best seller. You have helped me out so much and are always around when I need a chat or someone to bounce ideas off, Thank you I hope 2008 goes really well for you.
Rose what can be said you are my twin! We think the same and can tell each other anything and are the best of girly friends. I don’t think you even read this but as my best friend, I could not help but to give you a mention. We have spent many an evening watching movies under my duvet on the couch (you hiding away from the gory bits) and are fabulous fajita nights. I hope Uni is everything you want it to be in 2008.
Finally I need to thank the parents who are emmecly prowed of everything I have allredy achived.
