So it's nearly March already, how on earth did that happen?!
I have done a few KFC Commercials this year but otherwise 2013 has got off to a pretty slow start.
After returning from India last year I had a bit of a change of heart about life, it just made me realize my priorities were at home in Bristol. With that in mind I applied for a job at St Monica's Trust, an assisted living home for the elderly at Westbury Fields here in Bristol. Since January I have completed my training and am now officially Bank Care and Support Staff. I am really enjoying it and finding it very satisfying. Being Bank staff means I have total flexibility, I can tell them I have an 8 week drama and they just won't give me any shifts. The other great thing is that a shift is only 8-1 so going home at lunch time makes a nice change or I can be a hero and do a split shift because 12 hour days are the norm for me!
I definitely want Boom Operating to stay my number 1 career but I feel I am doing the right thing filling my time off with another job I enjoy and can fit perfectly around filming. Living down in Bristol is very important to me and having this extra source of income takes the pressure off accepting every odd days work in London, saving me hours on the M4 and fortunes in overnights.
I have quite a few shifts booked in throughout March so I am officially free from the 25th March but as I say, it is all flexible so if you need me before then, just let me know!
