My Vocal Skills – or not

Way way back many centuries ago, not long after the bible began… OK, forget the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat reference. It was 2007 and I had a job to do. I worked at a place called mobiles.co.uk . I did their “press 1 for customer services” etc recordings and have recently, thanks to Louis and Chris, managed to get my hands on them! So here are just a few of them your delight, or horror!

Resolutions For 2011

Granted, the 9th is a little late to be thinking of all the things I’d like to do in the year ahead, but given my 2010 post was finally put live on the 13th November – I’m actually very early with this one!

So my resolutions for 2011 are;
1. Continue my work with Hospital Radio Plymouth – do you know what – I really love it there, such a giving, friendly bunch of people, who have fun whilst really helping people. These people give so much of their time as volunteers and it’s something I have become really passionate about, and think everyone should do.

2. See the family more – Over the last few years, I have been fairly lax on seeing the family, although i frequently phone Mummy and Daddy Swift, seeing them regularly has never been priority – mainly because they live so damned far away (my choice I know). This year I’m going to make sure I use some of my holidays, or tie in meetings in the North to see them and my gorgeous Nephew – Zak. I keep trying to steal him, but my Brother and his partner Steph keep saying no! ho hum!

3. Lose Weight – yes, I know, I say the same most years, but I’m currently in Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy for both my knees, and losing weight will help. Although doing exercise on two dodgy knee’s is hard going! Although 25 isn’t actually that old, I do feel older, and quite often see pictures of a very petite slim me and long for those days to come back. Well long now more, 2011 is the year to slim down, tone up and not have silly knees.

4. Fix My Body – As I said above, I have dodgy knees, and a dodgy back etc etc – This year I’m going to focus some energy into taking care of myself, getting body parts fixed and using some of that girly stuff – think they call it moisturiser? I might even be seen out wearing makeup and ironed clothes, but one step at a time eh!

5. Follow Some Dreams – those close to me know I have a few ambitions that I have never really followed up on. Well this year I intend to focus some real energy into seeing whether what I want to do, can be done. That makes no sense to most of you, but I don’t want to say more just yet, as it may jinx it.

So there you go, a few things to get stuck into!

I think 2011 is going to be a big year for me, lot’s of new things in the pipelines, lot’s of new friends to make and lot’s of fun to be had!

I hope you all have a great 2011 too!

Here’s to a good AMAZING one!
