It’s me DirtyLaundryGirl09 I’m back yay!! anyway can’t even get my head around the fact it’s 2015!! That’s crazy right? Maybe it’s just me, Christmas was lovely I got to spend time with my mum and it was great to have a break and do nothing of course it’s practically mandatory over Christmas in my view, I spend time in a lovely place on Christmas Day it was a place in Hastings called Peet and we stayed overnight at this pub called Two Sawyers which was comfortable, warm and friendly the food was nice too felt like a stuffed Christmas turkey after having the lunch on Christmas Day but it was lovely. Boxing Day and New Year were a quiet ones I’m not one for going out a lot especially over New Year so it was nice to have some time at home and just relax I didn’t go mad and immediately mess everything up in the kitchen but I didn’t worry if I hadn’t got dressed or washed something up straight away. Like all good things sadly it came to an end because on the Saturday I had to go up to my sharing practice day for my drama foundation course it was great to see everyone and hear how their Christmases had gone plus the day finished at quarter to three so that was even more brilliant it was fantastic to come back in the daylight and not have so many people around when I was coming home. This week it starts back properly so no such luck with finishing at quarter to three we are meant to finish just after half five though but of course we end up finishing the last session at six oh well you can’t have everything I suppose. I’m back at my office course that’s right I’m a skilled typist now very handy when your writing out a blog like this one we’ve got exams this week fingers crossed the rest of them get emailed over and then we can get them out of the way as it were we are meant to have already done them but of course the exam board the college deals with was messing them around but what can you do? Then of course my Thursday evening drama class goes back next week it’ll be again amazing to see everyone and of course we’re going to be working towards our final show in July which is going to be on the stage again at the theatre!! Can’t wait for that plus it’ll be just a couple of months after my final showing with my Saturday drama class so it’ll be a great change in the midst of all this I’m also acting as a hair model for this girl my hair dresser is training up I’ve been doing that a while now she’s really nice and much to my hair dressers pleasure she is also willing to learn which is great for him I think because it’s nice when you’ve got someone who is actually interested in what you’re offering them in terms of training for a prospective position like hair dressing.
So as you’ve gathered by now I’m a pretty busy bee so I’m probably going to have to write these blog posts on more of a staggered basis rather than giving you a sudden influx of them all at once but don’t despair because those of you out there following me on Twitter can keep up with all my latest musings mainly all the time well not all the time but you get the picture.
Anyway I’m signing off now as I’ve got to start preparing my dinner otherwise I’ll start typing gibberish and you won’t understand a word I’m saying lol!!
Well it’s the middle of the week and the end of the week is nearly within sight on the plus side though the sunshines still here so fingers crossed it lasts for the weekend anyway today was just a typical wednesday really as I’m sure it is for most of you but at least I got to have a lovely walk outside in the sunshine, before going to the supermarket to pick up a few bits so that was good there’s something about wednesdays and sundays, as well it’s as though they’ve been designed to be mundane and slower compared to the rest of the days in the week.
Never mind my drama groups back after the half term break tomorrow it’ll be lovely to see everyone plus it gives me something to look forward to, we’re working towards our informal showing which for myself anyway will have to be the twenty seventh of march as my mum has got someone to cover her class that night, but anyway I’m sure it’ll be fine either and the full show isn’t until July so if we don’t say have as many for the informal showing that won’t necessarily matter as we’re just performing in the same room where we do the class.
In case you were all wondering I haven’t heard anything from the bag and photography shop that’s just up the road from me I been checking my emails and phone but so far nothing I’ll give it a couple more days and if I still haven’t heard anything then I can just put it on my CV as experience if necessary but I have applied for a Marketing and PR assistant job with a company called the Charity People so hopefully something might come of that now I’ve refined my marketing and general CV’s I’ll let you all know either way.
Anyway another thing that happened to me today was that my cat managed somehow to lost two collars the second one I’d obviously not secured enough but the first collar I’m not sure how the cat managed to take that one off as I had secured the first one enough so that the cat wouldn’t be able to take it off so easily but never mind I’ve put another one on the cat for now so hopefully this one won’t get lost but you never know with animals.
Thanks for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be posting the link to this blog post onto my twitter feed as well.
Well it’s Tuesday, the middle of the week is nearly insight and the sunshines here at last in February!! Looks like springs not going to be too far behind us fingers crossed the summers nice it’ll be lovely to finally wear something summery rather than having to wear a coat every time I go out. Anyway last week for most of us it was half term mine was fairly busy but not just the right amount otherwise I get bored or easily distracted one of those two, I caught up family but it was just my auntie who lives down the road from me, she wanted me to help her with some restraining techniques that she had to learn for this course that she was doing at the school she teaches at so that was interesting.
Then at the weekend on Sunday I finally managed to hand in my CV to this shop up the road from me it’s a bag shop and photography studio but it’s very nice inside, my hairdresser very kindly mentioned me to the girl who runs the shop she seemed nice so hopefully that might come to something it’ll be part time but that’s fine it’s kind of what I’m looking for really, obviously if somethings more permanent then you can structure other things around it but I really don’t mind so fingers crossed she said she’d keep me in mind, so who knows really I’ll let you all know if I hear anything.
Moving slightly I’m kind of a little bit further in finding a dress for my sisters wedding I know what style I’m looking for but I’m not sure where I’m going to get the dress from I could order it online but then you have to wait a few days for it to come, but then again I’ve ordered a couple dresses from the same website that I got my 21st birthday dress from and both of them came relatively quickly, so I might order something from them but then again I’m sort of looking for something a little bit more grown up not too grown up, but just something that says ‘I’m a sophisticated young lady’ plus my sisters dads going to be giving her away so I’ll need to look particularly fantastic that day, then there’s my hair and make up as well but once I’ve found, ordered and got the dress I’ll be able to start thinking about possible make up looks.
I’m sure I’ll look fantastic but not too over the top I can’t up stage the bride of course that’s an unwritten rule when it comes to weddings upstaging the bride is a definite no but I have offered to help my sister should she need anything I might try and ring her actually and see how she’s getting on and whether I can help out at all with anything. Also the venue she’s having the wedding at is really nice so it should be a really lovely celebration plus it’ll be lovely to see her and my nephew as a page boy I’ll definitely have to get a picture of him.
Thanks again for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be posting this link onto my twitter feed for you to have a read of.
Well it’s the middle of the week and it’s raining but luckily the last two days haven’t been that bad so I can’t complain too much.
In case you were all wondering I didn’t get the audition for the old vic community company never mind like I said I’ll just put it down as valuable experience on my Acting CV (Yes I do have one!!) anyway on the plus side I will be doing an informal showing at the end of march with my drama group on Thursday evenings and then a full performance on the stage in July so that’s very exciting it’ll be amazing to be on the stage again I was kind of hoping that we would do our show on the stage again so I’m glad that we are.
Another exciting piece of news that I have for you is that my sister is finally getting married in July don’t worry it’s not going to clash with my drama group performance it’s on a completely different date I’m really happy for her because she’s been engaged to her lovely partner for such along time well it seems like it and I was also hoping that one day she would get married, she’s not having bridesmaids which is fine of course but I’ll be the on call maid of honour so that’s alright.
It also means I can start looking for an amazing dress I’m already looking online for ideas so hopefully I’ll find something simple but with a little bit of sparkle maybe as it’s going to be a late afternoon ceremony with a party afterwards at the same venue so it’ll be very informal I can’t wait to see my nephew dressed as a page boy he is going to look so cute it’s his birthday soon actually I must try and remember to get him a card in time for it that’s something I’ll get onto tomorrow when the weathers a little bit better.
I’ve also volunteered my services as a co-wedding assistant so I’m wondering how much I’ll have to do but I don’t mind it’ll be fun really I’ve never been really involved with a wedding before I’ve attended two weddings but it’s nice to think that you’ve played some role in the special day. I’m also wondering about how I should do my make up I’ll need to look for something that will transfer into evening or something that I can add onto for the actual celebration afterwards.
Anyway I’ve bored you all enough I’m sure talking about my sisters wedding celebration but I’m just going to add this one last quick thing before I move on the only downside is that my sisters dad will be giving her away so of course I’ll need to look suitably fantastic I’m thinking of having hair extensions again so I’ll make sure that I’ve booked my hair appointment well in advance of the celebration.
Moving on as promised elsewhere in my life on Friday I’m going to meet with some volunteer people at twelve so hopefully they’ll be able to find me something ideally I would like something creative like being involved with the marketing for a theatre but I don’t mind volunteering in a shop or something like that anyway its also the day I’ll hear about a job interview that I went for this monday just gone it was for a customer assistant role in a supermarket I think I did well in the interview and the lady who was interviewing me seemed to like me but it’s hard to tell really who knows I can always put it down on my CV as experience if it doesn’t work out.
Thanks for bearing with me and reading about my crazy random life I’ll be putting the link to this blog post up onto my twitter feed as well so you can all read it later if you want to.
Well it’s nearly the end of the week and Friday’s just within reach hopefully the weather will be slightly better than it was today fingers crossed anyway last night I went to see Kinder Transport at the local theatre where I do my drama class that’s actually where I’m going tonight funnily enough as it’s Thursday anyway my friend and I had a lovely evening and the show was really enjoyable as well I sort of knew what it was about but I couldn’t remember the rest of the plot but it was amazing to be one row back from the stage the set was great actually plus the acting was amazing as well I hope one day I get to be in a play as good as that I ‘m sure I will one day.
It was nice to be out even if it was a Wednesday but that’s not such a bad thing mind at least there’s nothing good on the tele but tonight I’ll miss Supersize verses Super-skinny and The Un-Dateables which is catching up with the most memorable people who’ve been featured on the show to see what’s happened and whether they’re still looking for a partner or they’ve found someone I think my half brother Alex should go on that show because he really doesn’t know how to talk to people yet alone women mind you most men when it comes to talking to women don’t seem to have much of a clue either so he’s not alone on that front.
Anyway I was tired when I got home but it was great to catch up with my friend who I hadn’t seen for ages because we’d tried to meet up previously and something had either come up with her or with me so it was fabulous to finally have an evening where we could just talk and have a meal as well I took her to this little italian restaurant that I’d been to once and we both had a pizza which were very nice I have to say it was quiet in there but that didn’t matter because it meant we could actually have a conversation without having to over use the word what every five minutes.
Then tomorrow afternoon I’ve got my audition for the old vic theatre community company it’ll be amazing to go there again and be in an environment that’s produced and still does produce amazing plays and companies as well I’m already nervous though I know it’s silly I mean first of all it’s not happening until tomorrow and second of all I’ll be taking part in a workshop which will be active and physical apparently according to the information on the registration confirmation email that I printed off along with my performer application form which I’ll be bringing with me tomorrow afternoon it finishes at three thirty so fingers crossed I get out by four that’ll give me plenty of time to get home and digest the audition process.
I was thinking of going to meet some friends afterwards one of them is going back to scotland I said maybe as I don’t want to put myself under too much pressure just in case my train home doesn’t come in on time or something else crops up that’s the thing with public transport you never know what’s going to happen but to be honest it’s probably best that I have a quiet evening at home as I’ll be tired from all the physical stuff that I’ll be doing during the audition.
Hopefully if I do get into the community company at the old vic I’ll be able to still go to my drama group on a Thursday evening I’ve only put six until ten pm as the times that I wouldn’t be available of course during the run up to my performance with them I’ve not ticked that I can’t do six until ten pm because that’s crucial rehearse time but the good thing is my evening groups actual show won’t be until 13th July so that’s good I’ll work it out I’m sure but it’ll be good practice for me as I’ll need to build up my stamina for when I’m fully trained up, got my equity card and doing more professional theatre shows.
I’m sure I’ll probably be absolutely shattered by the end of it but it’ll be great experience and at least I’ll be able to put down that I’ve been part of something fantastic or I’ve had a go who knows it’ll be exciting anyway in a weird way I am very excited because I know that lots of famous british actors and american actors have done shows on the old vic’s stage so I’m sure my inner fan girl will come out at some point during the day.
Anyway I’ve got to sort myself out for my drama group tonight otherwise I’ll still be sitting here and I’ll be late for my class which would not be very good at all.
Thanks for bearing with me and reading another instalment of my random life I’ll be posting the link to this blog post onto my Twitter feed as well just in case you don’t get a chance to view my blog.
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.
Well it’s the middle of the week but never mind friday will soon be here so that’s good I hope the weather brightens up a bit though there’s been some sunshine for a little while but it seems to have disappeared again.
Anyway I had to run a few errands the other day which was why I didn’t get round posting a new blog entry it’s amazing you go to the supermarket and buy more than enough food then all of a sudden you have to go out again and buy some more it’s mind boggling on the plus side though I’ve heard back from the Old Vic Theatre Open Auditions and they sent me some dates and I’ve chosen the twenty fourth of January which is next week ahhh!! I know scary thought right? All I had to do was fill out a performer application form which I’ll then have to print off and bring with me on the day it starts a two pm and finishes and three thirty pm so hopefully fingers crossed I’ll be out by four.
Unusually for this audition I don’t have to prepare a monologue either which is great but at the same time kind of bizarre because I’m used to having to do that but at least it gives people a fairer chance though because it is nerve racking standing up and having to recite something that you’ve only just learnt but I guess as it’s an open audition it makes sense really.
My drama group goes back tomorrow evening which is great as it’ll be lovely to see everyone and catch up on what’s been happening I’ve got to bring in six pounds with me as I need to give that to my tutor so hopefully I’ll remember I’m sure I will do, then next week on Sunday my technical voice production course starts so that’ll be interesting it finishes on the sixteenth of February, so if I do get anywhere with the open auditions the actual preparation for the play doesn’t start until the end of march, but the call backs for the open auditions are on the second of february so I’ll need to warn my technical voice production tutor that I might not be in that day.
Anyway let’s see how it goes it’ll be amazing to be in the Old Vic Theatre again the last time I went there was to see Sweet Bird of Youth with a friend of mine but that seems like ages ago now but at the very least like I said before I can always put it down on my acting CV plus I can’t do anymore than my best fingers crossed hey.
I’ll be posting some more entries soon so keep reading and follow me on Twitter to get instant updates about what’s happening and when I’ve put up my latest blog entries.
Well the Easter Holidays have either started or in my case are officially over but it’s not all bad though because now I can get back to blogging away about my interesting but sometimes random life.
I had a nice Easter Break just catching up with friends and seeing family as well as going to look at the room that’s been hired out at the hotel for my twenty first birthday it was a good size and should fit twenty seven people but I’m thinking that I’ll probably end up with twenty five but that’s alright also my sister will be in attendance so that will be lovely and she’s really looking forward to coming.
Another not so exciting thing that I did over Easter was tidying up at home and doing lots of laundry it’s not very exciting stuff but the trouble is that if it’s not done then before I know it the washing’s all piled up along with the washing up as well but I’ve not had to do that a lot because I’ve been making lots of nice dinners at home so it gives me one less thing to worry about.
I still haven’t found a nice pair of shoes yet to go with my dress for my birthday I have looked at shoes and they were really nice but the trouble is knowing me by the time my birthday comes around my shoe size might have gone up also I need to buy shoes that I’m not going to be tempted to wear before my birthday hopefully I’ll be able to find some I’m sure I will do.
I watched the last episode of Heading Out I think it was a few weeks ago now if you haven’t seen it then catch it on BBC iPlayer it’s really good and the last episode was really funny I was actually in stitches I won’t give away the ending but those who have seen it will know how it ended it was really surprising but in a good way not as in a really obvious ironic sort of way.
I’ll be posting some more blog posts soon and I’ll also be tweeting about this post once I’ve uploaded it if your not following me on twitter please do I’d love to have some lovely new followers.
Well so far I’ve not done too badly with posting my blog entries so I’m very pleased with myself at least I’ve managed to maintain one of my new years resolutions, sadly on the walking front it’s kind of died off really not too much I mean I still like to go walking because it’s a nice break from writing blog entries.
Oh well at least the blog entry resolution has lasted it’s not been that easy though with the recent heavy snow my posting wained because I just didn’t feel I had anything interesting to say but at least that’s picked up as you can see from my latest blog entry.
Anyway enough of that I went to see the new Les Miserables movie at the cinema with two of my friends I have to say it was amazing I don’t normally say that about a lot of films but it really was amazing, the music for a start was just beautiful and the singing was good as well despite the fact very few of the actors in the film were trained singers.
The really cheesy thing was that I just could not stop crying and then my two friends started crying especially at the end of the film it was so sad (I won’t spoil the ending for you in case you haven’t seen it) but film fans who have will know exactly what I’m talking about.
It was nice to get out for a change and not just be stuck in I think that’s the effect of January it makes people and myself not really want to go out a lot unlike the summer when everyone seems to appear, that really amazes me suddenly thousands of people appear it makes me wonder where they all go when it’s winter.
I’m actually hoping to see a couple of friends that I haven’t seen for ages on Friday night even if we don’t go out it will still be lovely to see them as I haven’t been able to contact them for ages so it will be nice to catch up on what’s been happening with them.
I’ll be posting more entries very soon in the meantime keep following me on Twitter or follow me on Twitter to find out when the next blog entries going to be posted I’ll be tweeting about this one once I’ve posted it.
