Jane Reynolds' Weekly Magazine/Blog – 11th Sept 2011

Daz TV Choice Awards 2011 - Jane Reynolds - reporting from the EventTwo days to go until my trip to London, where I’ll be standing on the red carpet outside the Savoy reporting at the Daz TV Choice Soap Awards 2011 and interviewing the Soap Stars live on their way into the Event (hopefully some of them will take pity on me and spare a moment for a chat)!

It hasn’t really sunk in yet and I’m far more nervous about what I’m going to wear, as (despite asking everyone else what they’re wearing), I usually manage to turn up in the wrong thing.  We’ve moved on from my vision of ballgowns and tiaras, and (with the kind help of Olivia at their office), have agreed ‘smart casual’ to be the dress code on the day.

I’m still no wiser really though, and am torn between black office-type trousers (you know – the ones with a crease down the front), or black leggings tucked into black boots, and don’t even ask me about the top half!  Black top, or something bright?  Oh, God knows.  Nightmare, crisis.

I’ll be tweeting as I go, so if you’re on the edge of your seat wondering what I’ve settled on, I’ll let you know once I’ve got comfy on the 2.15 to Paddington on Tuesday.  Victoria Beckham heard about my dilemma and offered to lend me an outfit and some shoes, but I’m not sure I could go all night without smiling so had to politely decline.

Now. As you’ll know if you read last week’s blog, it was a bit of a blow losing half my income out of the blue like that but – on the plus side – it’s been nice to ‘gain’ a day, and I’ve felt as if I’ve had so much more time this week … er, an extra day in fact!

I’ve been able to catch up on a lot of correspondence and put a few things in place ready to attend to next week, and as long as I don’t eat or have to spend any money, it’ll work out really well.

Seriously though; I try to always believe that everything happens for a reason.  I’m struggling to work out what that reason was right now – as I crunch on this dry slice of bread – but I’m channelling positivity as we speak!

'The Big Weekender' with Nick, Barry & Jane on Swindon 105.5 FM & on Jane's blogYou can catch my Soap-y Slot (Nick’s name for it, not mine!), at 4.15 every Friday on Nick and Barry’s Big Weekender show on Swindon 105.5 FM, and I think I’ll also be popping up on the Girls About Town show this week, sometime between 11 & 1.00 on Wednesday.

There’ll be a full report on Tuesday’s events next week.  Wish me luck!
