After a busy (but very fun) day, I got back in the house to find these babies waiting for me..
Basically, everyone forgets about us in the North East and we usually get neglected by all the good chains.. we only just got an Urban Outfitters in December!! Luckily, the folks at Krispy Kreme have decided that we’re important enough to be blessed with excellent donuts so they’re opening a shop in the Metro Centre. Hurray! Donuts all round! So in order to celebrate the opening, their PR folks got in touch with me to invite me along next month and asked me if I’d like some free donuts in the mean time.. erm, yes! I expected maybe one or two to arrive but no, they sent me a dozen. A DOZEN.
Now I want you to be honest with me (because I always try to be honest with you), is it wrong that my tea tonight consisted of 2 donuts and a coffee?
It’s a bit of a lazy tea but I’ve had a few bits and pieces to play around with for a new project that I’m involved with.. Basically it’s an internship programme called Shift, which is being funded by Studio Precept, a Newcastle-based creative agency. I’m helping out with the social media side of things and so any support you can give me by following us on twitter or liking us on facebook would be gratefully appreciated. It’s still in its early stages at the moment but I’m just busy getting Shift’s blog set up and writing copy for the first couple of posts. I’m hoping that pretty soon I’ll be able to give you more updates.. By the way, if there is anyone in the North East reading this who thinks that they want to get involved just drop me an email or tweet me.
Now back to the donuts.. I need someone to eat the rest of the box now though otherwise I’m going to become obese. Luckily I’m probably going to be stopping by The Crack Magazine HQ in the next couple of days and they always like it when I bring along treats!
