I’ve just recorded a voiceover for someone in Belfast, Ireland. Currently my only order of the day. Then I thought, I haven’t written in my blog since last Friday!
It’s day 9 of the diet, and it’s going great! The secret? We’ve been eating breakfast every day, having a small lunch and a bigger evening meal before 6pm. No snacking on rubbish, no processed freezer food… i’ve lost 5lb’s already! Shifting that weight for the year of the wedding 🙂 When you’re self-employed, it’s difficult not to just keep eating all day when you’re sat inside all day with food surrounding you. All of a sudden you’ve piled on the pounds and you just keep eating biscuits, crisps… everything you shouldn’t!
On Saturday, Gareth and I went wedding ring shopping. We picked some really beautiful rings and I can’t wait ’til they’re ready! It’s exciting how time is flying so fast now we’ve hit 2018. Nearly everything is ready… Just outfits and the cake to sort!
Anyway, last week I didn’t think I was going to make enough money for my weekly goal. Which can be a little worrying when you have bills to pay and a wedding to save for. But on Sunday night I had a premium jingle order in on Fiverr from someone based in Jersey, which covered me for the week! So I hit that goal, but last minute. It’s a money rollercoaster in this job. You can feel poor one day and next everything can correct itself. So I was very pleased. I told my buyer i’d get it sent to them today (Tuesday) as I was visiting my great friend Isabel yesterday. However, I came home and got working on it and finished it too! They loved it first time too. So not only did I deliver earlier than I said, I got it perfect first time! My favourite type of orders. They gave me a 5 star review and said they’d certainly be back in the near future. Hurrah!!
