Let’s be honest, you usually see a picture of me sipping on a glass of Prosecco rather than a cup of tea! The well-used British idiom means ‘not to someone’s liking’, and as I’ve got older, grumpier and less tolerant toward people and things that impact on my routine or life has seen me change my outlook.
You are not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s OK
Growing up, I wanted people to like me and if there was a hint that they did not then I didn’t like it. I would do stupid things to try to make them like me – be loud, tell a few white lies, agree with their views (even if I didn’t). I would try out their hobbies so I would not be left out. Behaved differently around people trying to be a person I thought they wanted me to be.
The 13th February is World Radio Day. It is a day where people around the world celebrate radio and how it shapes their lives.
Radio was a big part of my life for nine years. My first ‘real’ job (and you will get the pun shortly) was working in radio. At age 16 I did work experience in the promotional crew, and by age 18 had a full-time job at Real Radio Wales, part of the Guardian Media Group.
I am sat on the floor next to a good friend Ellie (I may or may not be a bit tipsy), celebrating becoming Station of the Year 2007 and my team were thrilled to be announced as Group Team of the Year. I can name everyone in this photo too!
I bet you are wondering why World Ballet Day means so much to me? There is something magical about putting on your dance shoes and walking into a studio. The smell of the dusty wooden floorboards, the old painted beams and your image looking back at you from every angle in the mirrored walls.
Last year I was gifted a lip plumping procedure that takes only 10 minutes with no needles or surgery at Ultra Sculpt. The treatment uses radio frequency, photon light therapy which plumps, hydrates and smooths out fine lines and boost natural collagen production. I was so thrilled with the results that I had to go back and try some more of the treatments out.
If you want to make some enhancements WITHOUT the use of fillers or surgery, photon light therapy is not only affordable, it is pain-free and has instant results.
