Being a Blue Peter Presenter – Or near enough!

I can only apologise now for not having blogged in what feels like forever – but these past two months my work has been nothing short of being a Blue Peter presenter.

As a reporter I often take part in activities I’m writing the features on to really get a feel of what I’m actually writing about, but with the features I’ve been writing I feel like the only thing I haven’t done is birthed a lamb and slid down the firemans pole – not that I’m complaining, but it can bloody knackering!

Just some of my reporting antics!

These past two months, I’ve completed cycling sportives (which are knackering to prepare for – you can’t just show up!) been up climbing walls, rode a mechanical bull, took a tour through a decrepit building (and looked fabulous!), held an ostrich egg, met some AH-MAZING celebrities, and even had three, yes, THREE different buckets of icy cold water thrown over me for the ice bucket challenge – and this is only the tip of the iceberg!

Reason for this being – summer is full of activities, meaning the reporters all jump on board to get a good story and there has been plenty!

Besides the odd comment like when a man went “Are you going to cycle on that?” – obviously a cycling snob – and a couple of run-ins with a reporter I don’t get along with, where she was unprofessional and sloppy as ever – but why change the habit of lifetime eh?

It’s been pretty exciting and has certainly distracted me from my blogging – I probably should have been blogging about it!

I would write more, however the life of a Blue Peter presenter never stops as I’ve got a loverrly food fest to attend and get fat from – I say fat, my diet can lack for one day eh?
