With the January blues well and truly kicking in, I was fortunate to get a call from one of our lovely clients offering me a place at an event they were attending. The National TV awards, obviously being a social butterfly I had to check my extremely full diary but needless to say I had said yes before Lesley had finished her sentence!
So office and client chats were filled with “what are you wearing?” “What shoes have you got?” “Does my bum look big in this?” type things, through to “OMG please don’t snow!” last minute upsets
Well I thoroughly enjoyed myself from the moment I arrived at our very swanky hotel through to being welcomed into the private box our client had booked for entertaining not only their clients and some of their staff, but lucky old me! I was taken to mingle with the stars, drinks were flowing so much I’m not sure how many I had as it was just one ever full glass, but it was great fun. The access we had to the red carpet areas was amazing and I think Jonny Vegas was more pleased about having woman clambering for a photo than the girls that were asking for one!
The show itself is on a time delay for obvious reasons, however most celebs were well behaved and it was interesting to watch from above the stage to where I had a fabulous view whilst I laughed with some lovely people I met on the night. Our clients to whom I was grateful for such an invite made me feel like one of the team and it will be a night I remember for many to come.
By midnight my feet were killing me, new shoes…bad choice! And as we all wobbled towards the hotel bar, we spotted Jeremy Kyle for one last celeb selfie. Several beer pizza munchies later I made it to bed with a hangover ensuing. Top night, top clients…I love my job.
