Haven’t had a chance to blog for a few days as it’s been a bit hectic.
I was in London working from Sunday night and got back late last night. It was so nice to be back in London and to see my friends Conor, Giorgio and Claire on Monday night for dinner at Busaba. I love Thai food, but after two weeks in Thailand, I still think the Peppar Tree in Clapham Common is the best Thai food I’ve had anywhere. I thought I would be stranded at the airport last night as I missed the last Airporter, but managed to bag a lift with my good friend, Roisin, who was driving back from Newry for a meeting in Derry this morning.
So to bed at 1am last night and I got up bright and breezy this morning at 6am for the first BNI meeting in Derry. It was good to network with Derry business people over breakfast, but I’m not sure if I would like to get up at 6am once a week for networking.
This afternoon Paul and Edel, whose wedding I am shooting tomorrow called into the studio. They are so excited about everything, and I’m really looking forward to shooting their wedding in the stunning church in Drung and then at Redcastle Carlton Hotel.
After that I had a motorbike lesson. I finally decided to learn this summer, after years of thinking about it. I love Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman’s, Long Way Down and Long Way Round series, but to be honest have been scared of motorbikes for years. I don’t know if thirty is too young to have a mid-life crisis, so I don’t think it was that, but I finally had a lesson and have been hooked ever since. Looking forward to getting my test in the coming months. I have thought up of a dream trip…to ride from New York to Las Vegas for WPPI.
Work on the studio has stopped this week with painting due to start on Tuesday, but I did receive some stunning studio samples today – think the studio is going to look so awesome when it’s done – it’s going to be a cool environment for people to visit when it’s finished.
