If you follow my other blogs, then you'll know I work in a school. Originally I was the Receptionist, but after a year I applied for a job as the Marketing Manager and PA to the Principal and have been in that role for almost a year now too. I have to say that I absolutely adore my role, my colleagues and the place I work and feel like I have become a proper grown-up.

I'm not sure how, but some of the other staff members and I have become really good friends and although we don't see each other for a few days or weeks each school break, we keep in touch through our social media accounts, by messaging each other, occasionally calling and the odd meet up for lunch.

This Summer, I wasn't expecting to see any of my work friends until the end of the holidays. I'd sort of planned it that way, as I wanted them to be surprised at the changes I'd undergone and yes, they could have seen it from some of the photographs I've been posting, but I didn't think that the selfies would really show much of a difference!

Only, this week I accidentally bumped into three colleagues as they were all at work at the same time as me.

As there aren't students at the school, and mostly no staff, I hadn't worn my normal workwear and instead I was wearing jeans and a T-shirt which I had worn tucked in.

There were compliments everywhere. Compliments for my figure. Compliments for having stuck to a workout routine. Compliments for making changes. Compliments for just about everything.

It was like having my own personal cheerleaders.

It turns out that I will see them in a couple of weeks, so I'm really looking forward to the differences they see then too!
