Confessions of a invisable blogger

As you may have spotted, I've taken rather a considerable break from writing this blog! I'm not going to bore you with lots of excuses...but instead will just say "I'm back"!!!!

Recently lots of exciting things have got underway...the new academic year has started for many - and I've got trips to Derby and Oxford planned to see the new 1st year OT students. Strictly Come Dancing and X-Factor went head-to-head in a ratings challenge, London Fashion week showcased this seasons latest trends, the party conference season got underway with the Lib Dem conference in Bournemouth....to name but a few! Oh...and obviously I relaunched this blog!

Starting new things can both be scary and exciting....and depending on what you are doing they will bring a unique set of challenges and rewards. Personally, I think being contestant on Strictly Come Dancing would be far more scary than providing a presentation to over 250 people!

Good luck to all the 1st year OT students I meet on my travels around the UK over the next few weeks and months. Sorry I don't get to talk to your properly...and often breeze in and out of the lecture theatre within an hour! I wish you all well with your studies and practice placements. Some things may feel a bit scary and daunting at times but it is worth it...and you have the support of your tutors and professional body.
