Wednesday 12th March

This morning on my way to work, I stopped off in Boots to buy some Leminsip & A-Z Vitamins due to have woken up with a cold, I know some of you may say, ‘It’s only a cold, man up!’ BUT I have a weaker immune system to others due to being diabetic so when I catch one I tend to be very ill so I’m doing all I can to tackle this. When I cover reception my job title within my placement becomes, ‘front of house’ as I am representing my placement I cannot and will not be all fluey when answering calls to clients!

Not how I really imagined my morning to be…


Once I arrived in the office I made sure all meeting rooms were tidy, filled the coffee jars, gave the kitchen a general tidy and made sure that the dishwasher was empty ready to be filled with breakfast plates… I then switched on my computer opened ICAL & emails. Today is fairly uneventful apart from having to prep a meeting room at 12 for a job interview which is good news for me as that means I can write up a lot of my dissertation up until 3 o’clock as the day is suggested to then become slightly busy. Time to get stuck with in with some uni work…

In between writing up my dissertation I had to…
– Sign & hand out parcels

– Hand out post
– Count competitions
– Book meeting rooms
– Prep meeting rooms for job interviews
– Put paper delivery away

As much as I tried my best to resist until the end of the day, I do not feel well at all even after taking 2 lemsips as well as taking A-Z vitamins and drinking a glass fresh orange juice to try and make myself feel better. I feel annoyed with myself that I had to leave and go home, I feel like I slightly let my placement down especially with leaving them without a receptionist.

I’m sorry, see you soon…

Friday 5th April

This morning I snoozed my alarm so many times that I didn’t get up till Quarter to 9, miraculously I was only 10 minutes late but made up my time by staying 10 minutes later…It was one of those sleeps where you go to bed feeling fine and wake up with a DAMN cold urghh just what I need…

There’s not much to say about today, I spent all day in cupboard again finishing the magazine cupboard, I only wish I took a picture of what it looked like to start off with so I could show you how messy it was. It nice as well because I had my I-pod in all day it gave me the illusion time was going a bit faster. 

Before my lunch break the receptionist came and called me and asked me to go and buy some limes and sweetener as I forgot to buy it when I went and did the kitchen shop. The limes were for all the editors as there were plenty of Corona’s in the kitchen.

Before the day ended I wrote out my invoice for my hours this week and handed it in, finally the day has ended and it’s home time baby!

Also This always amuses me… I’m fined d d, I feel like her right about now…
