Well it’s Monday and as usual the weathers not been great thankfully I didn’t have to run any errands today otherwise I would have got very wet as it was pouring down with rain but never mind I think that’s what cold days were invented for to just do mundane tasks and maybe catch up on things generally.
My drama group was last week Thursday it was great to work to on the character piece that I’d chosen and co-ordinate it with the music that I’d picked for my character we got to read monologues as well they could either be similar or different to the characters that we were building I managed to find a good one about this lady who worked in the city but her brother had been murdered and she was trying to muddle her way through as to why the murder had occurred.
There were some really gritty ones in the monologue book that was flicking through as well I must try and remember the name of the book so that I can maybe purchase a copy for myself and read through the other monologues a bit more throughly some of them would be really useful for auditions.
Anyway my weekend was a mixture of mundane and fun the mundane part being that I had to give my kitchen a through scrub down as it hadn’t been given a good clean for ages and the fun part being that I got to the cinema for once it was mine and my mums reward as she’d come over to help me clear up my kitchen and organise stuff we went to see this film called The Book Thief it was about this girl who had been sent to this small town in Germany just before the second world war breaks out and how she develops a love of books so strongly having not being able to read them before that she steals them from this really important high ranking German officers library.
It was sad but I actually really liked it I didn’t think it would be my sort of film at all but the storyline was strong and the acting was good as well which helped carry the story along without the film verging into being too sentimental but I suppose as the Oscars were on last night the standard of films being shown in cinemas gets a lot better and there seems to be a bit more variety as well.
Sunday of course it was Call the Midwife as usual it’s like a ritual with me every Sunday night without fail the tele comes on at eight and I sit there and watch it it’s one of those programmes that on face of it would seem a bit off putting as it’s about women giving birth mainly at home in the nineteen fifties but actually theres always a different storyline going on some are uplifting, some are romantic, and some can be sad like the episode where the character Jenny lost her boyfriend in a horrible accident but last nights episode was uplifting and romantic it’s nice to have a combination of the two sometimes.
Thanks for bearing with me again I meant to post some more entries on last week on Thursday and Friday as I’d been doing so well with posting my new entries but never mind I’ll be posting the link to this blog post onto my twitter feed for you all to have a read of.
Well it’s nearly the middle of the week but never mind Friday will soon be here it’s also the day of my audition for the Old Vic Theatre ahhh!! Scary right? Anyway tomorrow night I’m going to see Kinder transport at my local theatre which is where I do my drama class on a Thursday night I was thinking of going to see it but I wasn’t sure when I was going to get the chance to because you know what it’s like time just runs away with you.
But a friend of mine wanted to go and see it and asked me if I’d like to come along as well and I thought well it’ll be lovely to see them as I haven’t seen them in a while so I said yeah why not I’m going to take them for a meal before hand as a little thank you they’d already brought the tickets being the organised soul that they are a bit like myself really.
I did manage to see another friend of mine last sunday who came round for dinner and we had a lovely chat then we watched Call the Midwife being the ‘wild things’ that we are lol!! No it was a lovely evening and it was great to see them as well I was so excited when I scrolled down my TV listings and there was Call the Midwife and it wasn’t a repeat yay!! The episode was good as usual it must be hard though trying to come up with decent story lines based around women in Poplar in the 1950s having children but it works.
I’m such a nerd but I can’t wait for the next episode this Sunday even better though I got a series one and two box set with the christmas special as well this christmas just gone I must start watching actually it’s been sitting amongst my DVD’s for ages but at least when I do get round to watching it I’ll be able to find it easily so that’s good I can’t stand having to rummage through loads of DVD’s to get to the film or box set that I want to watch.
Moving on from that I’ve been such a scatter brain today because along with washing up, sorting out laundry for the drier (I know there’s an irony there given that my name is DirtyLaundryGirl09 ha!!), clearing up after my new rescue cat oh yeah I didn’t mention him did I? Well he’s white and called Scumpy he’s been with me for about three months now he was outside for fifteen minutes today and he came back by himself through the cat flap I was very proud of him and yes he was very proud of himself too.
Anyway thanks for reading another instalment of my crazy random life I’ll try and be more organised tomorrow and get my other three blogposts typed up I’ll be posting the link to this one as I do for all my posts onto my Twitter feed.
It’s Monday and the start of another busy week of blog posting for me so far I’ve managed to keep up the good work of posting blog entries I’ve uploaded fifteen so far so I’m very pleased with that I’m hoping to get it up to twenty at least so that before the easter holidays hit I’ve got a good number of posts uploaded for everyone to read.
Anyway the weekend wasn’t too bad I went over to my aunties house on Saturday which was lovely and it was nice to see some members of my family and a few of my cousins were there so that was lovely also major exciting news!! My cousin who recently got married over in Ireland is having twins with his wife and the other exciting thing is that the twins are going to be identical so they’re either going to have two boys or two girls personally I’m hoping that they have two girls because then I can buy lots of pink dresses for them or teddy bears but if they have two boys then I can still buy the teddy bears instead so it’s win win really.
Also my other cousin his wife is going to have they’re second child on the sixteenth of may I think so that’s the major thing at the moment we’re gearing up towards, well that and my twenty first birthday in may as well which is very exciting stuff I’m hopefully going to buy shoes at some point either this week or over the easter holidays so that I’ve got some lovely shoes that match my dress that I’m going to wear for my birthday.
I’ve been following Call the Midwife on Sunday nights recently and the final episode of the second series was aired last night it was a bit sad but the ending was happy I’m not going to tell you all what happens in case you haven’t watched the episode yet on BBC iPlayer, the good news is that it’s been commissioned for a third series which I can’t wait to see when it’s on and of course there’s going to be a special lighthearted episode of the show for comic relief which I’m also very excited to see.
