January is finally over! Am I the only one who feels like it lasted for weeks and weeks?
It’s been a productive one for me thankfully – I hit a serious reading slump towards the end of last year, barely reading any books at all. That all changed as the new year came in and I powered through loads of reads!
I was also incredibly lucky this month! I was at a conference for work – The entire morning had been death by powerpoint and ‘fun’ team building exercises. Just before lunchbreak, the organisers gleefully announced there would be a surprise guest when we got back, to give us a motivational speech. Cue the entire room groaning in unison at the thought of some cheesy motivational speech!
But lo and behold, we came back from lunch and none other than Mark ‘Billy’ Billington was stood on the stage! Any fans of Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins will recognise him. He gave a fantastic speech, hosted a lengthy Q&A session with us, and even stayed around when he was done so we could approach him individually to ask questions or just say hello! He was also kind enough to gift us all with signed copies of his new book, which I cannot wait to read. He is such an interesting, and genuinely lovely, guy.
I’ve been a bit hit and miss the last few months with this blog, and my writing in general, and I intend to change that this year! I want to be more productive, post more, read more, write more. And remember to actually interact with people on Twitter more… (Despite having been on Twitter since the day I started this blog, I’m still such a newb with it!)
