2018 What a year!!!

Now I know it hasn’t ended but I just wanted to reflect and share with you all...

2018 has been somewhat of a hectic whirlwind and full of happiness and joy.

Friday just gone I was filming for Money for Nothing and was told by the Series Producer, that it was my last day.

WOW how time flies when you are having fun.

Ok let me do the numbers

Money for Nothing in 3 years I have filmed Series 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7 and a Celebrity version. Series 5, 6 and 7 of Money for Nothing in the bag #BOSCH

WOW, now for the 

The Repair Shop, in the last 2 years I have filmed Series 1,2,3,4,5 and the Christmas Special. #BOSCH

 I have been lucky enough to be recognised for my TV Presenting at the Screen Nation Media Awards. And only this week another award for something that is very dear to my heart. I was shortlisted for the Amara Interior Blog Awards, for my Blogs. #BOSCH

I had the opportunity to also be a part of a cooking programme. Well that is a massive understatement I meant to say Celebrity Masterchef two words that just don’t describe me Jay Blades a humble restorer of furniture. But it was an honour, a pleasure and a great experience. #BOSCH

Redesign a number of items for the O2 Blueroom, which was a Great honour to be asked and to see my work in such an iconic venue. #BOSCH

My life has really taken so many twists and turns these past few years. I am so grateful to all those looking after me and taking care of my progress. I hardly have time to think about 2019 although I know it will rapidly be upon us.

I guess I just wanted to say before this year has passed. I have had a blessed year and for that I am truly grateful. In addition to this I want to say if it can happen to me that young kid from truly humble beginnings it can happen to you. Hard work, having a dream and taking every opportunity that comes your way can turn all that hard work into luck and that dream into reality.

My thanks go to each and everyone of you. My fairy Godmother, you know who you are and the lord you has helped me grow, guided my footsteps and placed a hand on my shoulders to keep me grounded, strong and protected.

2019 Come on then, lets see what you have waiting for me. #BOSCH 😂🙏🏾💪🏾👍🏾
