Six more sleeps to go…..

It’s snowing on our blog, but sadly not outside, where did the wintry weather and hopes of a white Christmas go?

White Christmas

White Christmas

The University and Student Support Centre seem to get quieter each day and makes us all wish we were students again for the long holidays and time to catch up with friends and family. The Outreach Team all finish at different times for Christmas due to annual leave and toil. Nicola will be the only one on Friday so fingers crossed it goes quickly for her; perhaps she’ll get to go home early as a nice Christmas surprise?!!

It must be Christmas time…..

Frosty! Wrap up warm!

X factor has finished, it must be nearly Christmas! (I didn’t follow it this year…but do we think James Arthur will be number one?!) Luckily, this is not the only indication; the weather is frosty and everywhere decorated with lights and of course, not forgetting Emma’s last post which made me feel really festive!

Gearing up for September

The beautiful Olympic opening ceremony

So, Olympic fever has taken over the entire country and I for one am completely obsessed. What an amazing couple of weeks! I want everyone to be this proud of ‘GB‘ all the time, let’s hope it lasts!

Gold medals galore & some Olympic nail art!

As you all know, Hannah is currently working in the Admissions department, also, Matt is now on holiday and Nic has just returned from hers, so the team has been a bit disjointed. However, Nic and I are really excited to have Hannah back next week after she finishes her 4 week project with Admissions – we love working together as a team and have missed her lots.

Stress = Success?!

Can you turn stress into success? Apparently you can, if you improve your resilience to life’s challenges.

Work, stress, Home, stress…..

I went on Turn your stress into Success training yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed it. I definitely think this is an area of our lives that we all need to get better at tackling, so it was relevant to everyone. Continue reading

Alone in Admissions….

Summer…..about time!

Finally, summer seems to have arrived! I wish I had more opportunity to enjoy it!

I am sure you will have gathered that I have been loaned out to the Admissions department for the run up to clearing. And, on top of that, this week I am all alone as the rest of my team are out of the office for various reasons. So all change again! Continue reading

Thinking of things to come…..

Where you want to be?

Hello!- I’m back! Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and making the most of the beautiful June weather, apparently we have one more day of sunshine before the rain!

This is, again, only a fleeting post as I have just got in from an event and am out all week with Marketing and my team members attending external UCAS events and representing the University.
