What an Amazing Day !

Leave a comment

I had the most amazing day yesterday, it started as soon as we woke up. The phone at home was going crazy with the press wanting to come and take pictures and interview me.

At 7.30 we had a photographer at the door & me and Koby thought it was Ed Sheeran (sorry Iain). He took lots of great pictures adn Mum was in a flap as she hadn’t done my hair!!!

Koby loved all the big camera’s and lenses

I then went to school and Mum phoned me at School to say we were going to go on Tv that night!

We were picked up early and when I got home Radio City were there to do an interview, the lady Roisin was so lovely and made me relax.

The excitement didn’t stop there, we were picked up in a big people carrier and taken to pick up Adrian from DoES Liverpool and we all went to Media City Manchester, what a place. We were so excited, Nazia who is the producer of NorthWest tonight came to meet us and took us up stairs, there were lots of desks and computers and everyone looked very busy. We saw the sports section where they do the live sports news and then went up the chill out area outside the studio.

When we went into the studio we met Roger and Annabelle who were so nice, infact everyone was from the man who gave us our microphones to the camera man who gave Koby a lesson on how to film.

 

The interview went really well and I was relaxed. Dad was a bit nervous and said he got choked when he heard me talking so well.

 

After the interview we all got to go back in and have our picture taken and have a chat.

Diane let us do the weather and Koby had a go, I couldn’t help but laugh when he said it was going to be windy, it’s always windy when he’s had beans!!

2015-06-01 19.08.30-1We got a lift back and dropped Adrian back at DoES so he could set the 3D printer off printing some more hands ready for the exhibition this Thursday at Fact.

We couldn’t sleep when we got home so Dad helped me do this. Im off to bed now. I think Leanne & Dave are calling from Radio City tomorrow for a chat! Nite Nite.

Phew.
