April 2012

Florida looks much better than Sunderland.

19th April 2012

So as I sit here at my desk I can see the rain hitting the window and the dull grey sky and hear Mark Thorburn on the radio telling me about winning a holiday to Florida. Obviously I can't win it but you can. Just take a look outside, where would you rather, in Sunderland or enjoying yourself in Florida? Thought so! All week I've been out promoting our Big Stick up compitition and with the weather we are having its not hard to get people to enter. If you do want to enter by the way you need a Sun Fm carsticker, click on this link to find out where to get one from The Big Stick Up.

I also went to the Sunderland and North Durham Royal Society for the Blind this week. They provide a vast amount of services to help blind and visually impaired people and it is a vital service that they provide. I was impressed with the amount of things they did from craft days and cooking sessions to gardening and days out as well as a whole host of sports to get involved with. They particularly need a shop for a couple of weeks to sell nearly new items to raise vital funds to keep the charity going, so if you can help please get in touch by e-mailing

I'm hoping that the good weather will make a return as we are starting to look ahead to everything going on this summer from the Peterlee show and the Airshow to the big concerts at the Stadium of Light, it's going to be busy. It's just weird talking and planning these events when the rain is lashing at the windows!!

Long Time No see!!

10th April 2012

I know, I know...its been a while since I've blogged, but I've been on holiday then I've been busy. May I say how lovely you are looking, and is that a new top you're wearing??!

So Easter!! How was yours? You'd think as you got older you would eat less chocolate over easter than you did when you were a kid, nope! I ate loads and I've still got a mountain to get through. It is one of the few times during the year when you can embrace your inner child, and there is something very satisfying about eating easter eggs, especially if you eat a whole one in one sitting!! I think they are so tempting because they are on show. Usually chocolate is hidden away in a cupboard, but easter eggs are displayed in our house in a  little pile which constantly wink at you, whispering "go on, eat me, you know you want to". To be honest the quicker I can get through them the better I will be, at leat that's what I'm telling myself.

This Friday I am hosting Miss 24 Carat at the Stadium of Light which should be fun. I'm looking forward to hosting as I've been used to judging which is a tough job. Honestly from the outside it looks like the perfect job spending your evening looking at these attractive girls, but you are judging them, its tough. You realise you are passing opinion on the way they look. So I'm glad I'm hosting and leaving the judging to others.

Just a short blog this week as I ease back into it, I imagine you are doing a similar thing at work after 4 days off. If you want to check out my Spotlight On Sunderland group by the way click on the link.Back On The Map.
