This week has definitely been one for the books. The heatwave we’re currently in is frankly unbearable for the majority of us British people who are used to brisk winds and constant rain. Although it’s welcome for me I forsee lobster season for my skin! Factor 50 come at me!
For those of you who don’t follow my instagram @ohsoviki I started a new job at the beginning of the month. I am absolutely loving the variety of it and it’s definitely playing to my strengths. It’s great to meet new people, especially as I don’t know too many people down south yet, it’s also fun to hear lots of stories from people in my industry and get to learn from them.
This week I was asked to work on a remote broadcast for a some garden equipment promotion and guess what day they picked? Of course, the hottest day of the year! It made us incredibly busy testing out all of the equipment alongside dismantling a studio, but I guess it’s more productive than sitting in said studio watching ancient aliens at 6am which was how we spent the previous day.
It was a sweltering 36 degrees and we had 3 hours of solid shooting (with an hour off for myself personally directing from the gallery which I was so happy for as it’s constantly cool in there). The crew were hiding under umbrellas and we had to set some equipment up next to a fan and if still overheated! Overall it was really fun to work on though and I can’t wait to do more!
My nights are usually spent relaxing now. I’ve been decluttering my flat (it no longer looks like the tip from my first picture on this post! Promise!) and also got back into gaming. I am addicted to The Last of Us! It has been on my shelf for years and I just never got around to it despite how good everyone says it is. It’s not what I expected at all but has not failed to disappoint, and with the second one finally releasing recently I felt like it was time to finally get my ass into gear and play it.
This weekend is my weekend off so today I ventured out to prepare for a bbq I am having. As well as my first time in a shopping centre in months! I weirdly found my favourite purchase in lidl which was this adorable cactus llama. The weekend will be filled with testing out all of my new products that I have received so keep an eye out here for more reviews!
How are you all coping with this heat? Especially during lockdown? Let me know in the comments!
