Staycations are definitely the way forward!!!!
Good morning folks! Micheal once again. It's been another eventful week – mostly away from the office though for our family. We took our two-year-old twin boys through the airport and onto a plane for the first time. Never again! Staycations are the way forward. If you can think of any airport security breach, we had to deal with it!! Ran under the desk and through the security queue and out the other side! The horror.
Anyway, things to do at home....Funnily enough, we (Rikki and Kellie) have been working on organising our first ever event – outside of our People of The Year Awards. We will be hosting an independent fayre in late October – fun for all the family so if you're a business and that's up your street get in touch with us here.
It's an interesting avenue we are only just peering into. There is so much we can do, so much we'd love to do but I am regularly told to stay focussed. I have a habit of a wandering mind and rambling when telling a story. That said, we've just put events on our radar, on the periphery. We'd love to know your thoughts on that and what you'd love to see in your area...
