Sky News Day 8: There really are days when EVERYTHING goes right…

There are only two words I can use to describe my day today and that’s bloody fantastic. The perfect combination of a late evening nap yesterday and an early bedtime left me more than ready to tackle the delights of the Jubilee line at 8am in preparation for my last day at Millbank. No sooner am I in the door, I’m whisked out the door to Downing Street with the politics correspondent Sophy Ridge. Aside from the weird sensation of looking at that black door, Sophy was one of the loveliest people I’ve met so far at Sky and she was really keen to chat about how best to get your foot in door and let me help her with the twitter live she had up and coming. Though we didn’t get the chance to observe any of the actual big-wigs, no sooner had I got back and Ed Balls wandered through the door. You know, as you do.

I hardly had the chance to sit down before it was time to pick up my official accreditation to cover the Olympics as a Sky Reporter. Which, it turns out, comes with a free £90 oyster card. I am certainly not complaining and seeing as it looks so nice and pretty, I can sense it’s going to be on my wall for the foreseeable future.

These are going to be on my wall FOREVER

After a casual chat with Adam Boulton about Harry Potter and Batman, I then got to sit in on a pre-recorded interview that will go out tomorrow and even press all of the right buttons and speak the lingo to send it down to Sky’s main base. And just in case in sounds like I’m slacking, I’m still working on some projects from last week, y’know, when you get a free moment. To finish off what I must classify as a pretty damn good day, I got a call from my mum to tell me I’ve been awarded the Rotary prize for my examination results at university. Pretty swish, if I say so myself. I would write more but I’m off for gin with the Daily Mail’s one and only Sara Malm
