March 6th, 2014 Update

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted on here, it’s been a very busy beginning to the year.

We have been working in the Co-op, running many birthday parties and we are just about to go into the Hen & Stag do season…so lots more fun to be had.

I’m personally really looking forward to it. I’m very fortunate that I absolutely love my job and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
