🌟 BOOM! What a day! 🌟
I woke up knowing that we would have two new starters joining the team at Battenhall, growing our little empire of communications wizards and was feeling pretty good about that. It turns out that it was the first of many things rated awesome all of which came in a range of shapes and sizes.
📢 Make sure you read to the end – I’ve saved the best until last!
Next up, I walk into the office to be greeted by a beaming Drew, who tells me we’ve just won the Holmes Report award for best new consultancy for Europe, Middle East and Africa! Amazing!
The day goes on and inductions for the newbies ensue, a quick visit to a top secrecy project location followed by lunch. This is when I spot an email from Nike Training Club, telling me I’ve been picked for a spot in Tuesday night’s event to be trained by ‘master trainers’ and to get a free dinner! Winning!
The afternoon continues and I take what I think to be either a handful of m&ms or skittles, turns out it was both! Excellent combo that I’d highly recommend.
Then finally, the biggest and best news of my day that left me sobbing on the tube on my way home… My friend Nicky who I met through the Running the World Facebook group, who has run three London Marathons in recent years not to mention any of the other halves and 10km runs too, finally got her date for her last, yes last, chemo session!
Nicky is one of the bravest, determined and inspiring women I’ve ever known. She’s been fighting the big C for too many years (read her story here) and in spite of all the sh*t it brings, she always comes through with the biggest smile, the best sense of humour and the most incredible spirit.
Screw you Cancer! 💪🏻 We’re winning!
