Oops! I cannot believe how long long it has been since I last wrote a post!… No excuses but I have been super busy rehearsing for a show and must admit that I felt a bit guilty writing or reading when I could be going through that song just one more time (five more times…). So time has well and truly slipped by. Time for a little update on whats been happening then don’t you think?
As I kind of said above, i’ve been in a local AmDram production of Legally Blonde The Musical! As you can tell by me actually sitting down and writing again, it’s now sadly finished, but what a rollercoaster ride it was! Having not sung or danced for nearly four years it was a pretty scary thing being offered a named character role. Margot…. It was a pretty big deal for me and I hope that I rose to the challenge and people enjoyed my take on it/singing/dancing/overall performance! It was an incredible feeling to be back on stage after all this time, such a buzz! However the main thing i’ll take away from the past few months are the amazing friends I made who supported me throughout… More people to miss whilst i’m away!!
Work-wise, time has flown by and now I only have two days left!… English GCSE’s have been and gone and I suppose that means that my job is done… But what a lovely week to finish though as the Year 11’s have their High School Prom tomorrow. I’ve been helping organise it and will be spending the afternoon harnessing my inner events designer to try an make the venue look wonderful. I cannot wait to see all of the girls in their dresses and the guys in their suits.The excitement will be bubbling out of them i’m sure.
Fitness. I have been going to the gym fairly regularly (for me) for the past few months to try and improve my fitness ready for travelling. Friday is my last day of my membership there so I think I am going to attempt the ’30 Day Shred’ from the beginning of July. My friends have seen incredible results in their fitness, stamina and toning since they started it. Let’s hope I can keep the motivation up once i’ve started. Maybe mentioning it on here will force me to keep it up!
It’s been lovely having my brother home for a few weeks. He found out yesterday that he passed his second year of university with a 2:1 in Chemistry!!! He is quickly overtaking me in academic knowledge. The little smarty-pants. I am so proud of him. He starts his placement soon which he will complete over the next year before going on to finish the final stage of his Degree.
My other little brother has just turned 18!! Not so little any more hey! He has also been offered the character of Eugene in Grease! with the same company that we performed with in Legally Blonde!.. Another reason to be a proud sister!
Finally, it’s also just been my Nanny’s 80th birthday! How amazing is that? .. I won’t say much though as I plan to do a separate post later on.
I should be posting more regularly from now on.. Time is quickly vanishing before I head away and there is so much to be done!
