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.
