January 2009

Hi All

Well, a new start to the year and a late entry into the diary (again!), still at least we start as we mean to go on.

No mainstream work in the month and no auditions. I did manage to do some voice over work and I have some presenting to do very shortly. It seems that I am doing more and more of this type of work. It's ironic really as I never really intended to work in these fields – I just sort of fell into it and from that I get a fair bit of repeat work from the same companies (I must be doing something right !)

January and February are always very lean months (I probably have mentioned this in previous entries for the same months going back over the years – but it is true) so it is no surprise that I am quiet.

I am ALMOST at my goal weight that I set myself in weight related terms. I only have 2 and a half pounds to go and I will have lost over 3 and a half stones in weight – 50 lbs to be precise.

It has been a long process but one I am very proud of, linking exercise and watching what i eat has been crucial. The fact that I have lost it very gradually over a long period (3 and a half years) hopefully means that it will now stay off and I will remain fit and healthy as the years go by.

This is the first entry that I have written on my new iMac. I purchased it about a week and a half ago and it is the best thing ever – i love it !!

If you have never seen one, pop into your local apple store and have a look – you will be blown away.

The laptop was ok five or six years ago but it has been totally outgrown and does not function as quickly or effectively as I require so drastic action was needed to update myself and the hardware/software – hence the iMac.

Well, as ever I am rambling on about nothing of much importance so I will sign off now and leave you with this thought – something I am going to do every month for 2009.

” If doubt is challenging you and you do not act, doubts will grow. Challenge the doubts with action and you will grow. Doubt and action are incompatible. ”

Not bad for the first quote/thought eh !!

Until next time
