Well Dear Reader, at last a chance to draw breath and have a much deserved day off!!
The theatricals went brilliantly and we were heaped with much praise for ‘Cash on Delivery’ which was probably the most bonkers thing I have ever been in.
This was us in all of our 70s splendour
It was a farce so we had the obligatory undertaker, man dressed up as a woman and plenty of ‘being hit in the face by a door’ moments. It was a great show to do and apparently, according to pretty much everyone who came to see it, a riot to watch!
Apart from that and going to work in between times, I have done precisely nothing – haven’t had time really. TG is off for a trip away with the boys till Friday so I plan evenings of crap telly, long baths, a small glass of something and no snoring! Bliss!
On the house across the way front, we have already had two bookings – woo hoo!! My brother and his family stayed in it over the weekend and pronounced it most comfortable. Despite the pretty much incessant rain the field behind the house is a fabulous yellow and the SBG asked me if it had been painted – bless her!
There is a little breathing space now, until we begin rehearsals for Calendar Girls in about 3 weeks time. I need to lose a significant amount of blubber and am seriously considering liposuction as a last resort…..the diet begins tomorrow!!

Oh for heaven’s sake Dear Reader. 2012 is dashing by at the same speed as the past year did and not a blog entry to be found!
In no particular order – a small update.
Theatricals are taking centre stage (see what I did there) at the moment. Currently in rehearsal is ‘Cash on Delivery’ – a very funny farce with lots of cross dressing, being knocked out by doors and ‘in one door and out the other’ moments to keep the audience amused. Next on the agenda for February (one night only) is The Vagina Monologues which we are performing once more in aid of the Island Women’s Refuge. We had SUCH a laugh doing this last year and it was so successful as a fundraiser that it was decided to wheel us out again this year, vajazzles and all! And lastly there are auditions next week for Calendar Girls to be performed in September in Cowes. Whilst being somewhat dubious about the stripping off thing and needing to lose
half my body weight at least a stone, I am going to go along and see if I’m successful. Watch this space.
Apart from that, the Smallest Baby Boy is one on Friday and has just taken his first steps (he is a lazy little git) and he and the SBG are coming for a sleepover with Nanny and Pops at the weekend. Whilst this fills me with joy, it also fills me with dread as you can’t take your eyes off the SBB for a nanosecond otherwise he’s on / in / under or behind something. Either that or he’s jamming something totally unsuitable (including parts of the cat) down his throat – parcel tape is currently looking like the best option…..
Apart from all that, there has been gardening – well why not as it’s so flippin’ mild and a few undercover projects on the go to be revealed in due course…
These are busy but exciting times, Dear Reader and I shall update soonest. I may meet myself coming back (as my Nan used to say)…
