Please tell me I was not the only one to think of this at the time.

Cut if you haven't seen the episode, but it's not really a spoiler.Collapse )

It's International Neckerchief Day! (World Scout scarf day if you want the proper title). Here I am in one of my Guide neckers.

Church flower festival this weekend, so busy, but I was pleased with my display.

After the intensive flowers suspended on a column last time, I went for something simpler with lots of props. Did prop set up on Thursday and the flowers on Friday. They only took me an hour and a half, but I didn't want to spoil the simplicity and I felt I had done enough.

Cut for large pictures.Collapse )

Oh.... There goes another character I like.

At least I hope so. The last few times I thought this happened, George R R Martin resurrected them again. I'm actually beginning to miss all the death.

The death last chapter and this one seem to be quite conclusive though.

poster-fiddler-on-the-roof-mediumSo my latest production has almost been cast. Performances in November (17th - 20th), so save the date.

I have a lovely little part which I can really get my teeth into.

Can you guess what I have got (Cue maniacal laughter)

Today at school, we were looking at the Thames Flood Barrier.

There were diagrams of the barrier showing how it worked, but the teacher and the other TA said, "I don't get it." (or words to that effect.) I looked round for a cardboard cylinder and spotted a pringle pot that someone had left on the window sill after the fete on Saturday. Grabbed that and attacked it with scissors to create a mini Thames Barrier to illustrate the rotating gates.

Yay me!

17th-May-2014 12:03 am - On stage tonight...
Ranger Izzy
Just been in the first night of a little show we are doing. 30's songs tied together with a very silly script. It's great fun.

Tonight on stage was one of those moments when you wonder just what you are doing. One of the songs involves most of the female chorus hiding behind a clothes rail and popping out at various times. Well, the clothes rail is a little small and to get us all behind, we are crouching quite small. At one point, I'm right at the back of the stage on my haunches to keep out of the way, and another cast member is literally sitting on top of me, it is so cramped.

We are having such giggles.
