Well this is my first ever blog post, a new thing for the New Year. This year I spent Hogmanay in a castle (pictured right) which was also a first. On 1st January I had the opportunity to introduce some of the hotel guests to fencing where we spent a few hours playing with the rubber swords and chatting. Both children and adults alike had a great time and I hope some of them decide to take up fencing in the future. The castle was a perfect venue for a fencing event as there was a separate hall (normally used for weddings) which was unoccupied while I was there so we had plenty of space to run around.
This year I plan to have many more firsts. This weekend I will be competing for the first time under the name of Braveheart Fencing and in early February I plan to run my first Beginner Fencing Class for the Braveheart Fencing Club. I have lots of exciting goals for Braveheart Fencing this year and I will try to keep you up to date with all our achievements. For now though I hope you had as great a New Year as I did and that you work hard to make all your resolutions a reality. I did set myself some New Year's Resolutions for 2015 but for the most part I thought I would do something different this year as inspired by my man who has "ordered" what he wants from "the Universe".

Rather than resolving to somehow be a different person this year to the one I was last year I have had a real think about what I want to achieve this year and asked the universe to deliver it to me. I do not have to worry about how these things will happen, I just need to believe that they will and really start to enjoy managing this business.
Fencing is my passion and I am looking forward to making my fencing club and my coaching business successful with the help of my loving and supportive partner in both life and work.
