Dreams do come true!

What an amazing summer this is turning out to be for me. I have secured a new job starting in September, at a local girls school in which I will look after 3 biology labs. Nervous and excited I can't wait to get stuck in now!
Those of you who know me and  have read this blog will know that I have been supporting my favourite non-profit organisation since it began and for most of this journey I have been fundraising for them via my runs, which is why this blog was set up. Last week, I became a member of the Board of Scientific advisors for The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association.

I was told that this is a select group of people and I feel very honoured to have joined them. It feels rather surreal and I will do anything to help. My heartfelt thanks to Rutger and the Starfish team for thinking of me. Talk about a dream come true!

I have also wanted to whale and/or dolphin watching and am very excited at the moment. You see on Monday, in the wee small hours, I shall be travelling to the beautiful island of Ischia off the coast of Naples. I am spending a week as a volunteer living on a boat, going out to sail and monitoring marine life such as dolphins,whales, tuna, sea turtles and moonfish.This is billed as a marine biology course and trips such as these are ran by a Manchester based company called Global Nomadic. I am so grateful to them for contacting me and giving me this opportunity of a lifetime. I can't wait for my adventure to begin.Two dreams accomplished within a month.Who'd of thought it! I will of course take plenty of photos and be happy to blog about it when I get back. It may fit better on my other blog 'Chemistress'. I haven't decided yet! Wish me luck and...Happy trails....
