I know most of you know I am obsessed with competitions. I love them. There is just something about winning something that is just brilliant and ever since I won a Madness Album aged 8 from the local radio station (God bless 2CR) that was it, I was hooked. I shall however never, ever forgive Noel Edmonds for never picking me out to win anything on Multi Coloured Swap Shop!
I love writing, I really don't think I'm very good but I enjoy it and it gives me an outlet that otherwise would not exist in my life. So...Combining the two would be my ultimate prize and today I won it!
My friend Dawn (she is ace, I met her very very late at night on a pavement outside a club in Newport - with James Marsters - that is another blog post) well she saw this competition last week and thought of me, so sent me the link.
It really was completely me - encapsulating writing, music, environmental issues and festivals of the muddy field and flower varieties!
The very environmentally aware company Ecover were looking for two aspiring journalists to cover the launch of an exciting, top secret project that will be launched this Wednesday in London.
"As the Ecover Citizen Journalist you will report on the pioneering new project, attend the press launch and conduct interviews for The-Splash magazine. You will also have the opportunity to attend Glastonbury Festival 2013 (with a friend) to report on the public's reaction to the project and soak up the unforgettable festival atmosphere. What's more, you are invited to attend RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2013 to conclude the project."
I entered just feeling it was perfect but I never REALLY thought I'd be picked! I suppose I never really think anyone reads this blog - but Ecover loved it and I am completely in shock!
So on Wednesday I am putting down the Tena pants of care and heading to London for the top secret launch! I'm so excited. I have no idea what to expect as I couldn't be told much but it sounds so intriguing!
A citizen journalist for 5 months - dream come true!
So this is my first post about this #EcoverMessage secret project and I cannot wait to share it with you all!
