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.

Just getting in on time.

In other news, the postcards I sent from Kenya have started to arrive. Watch out if you requested one!

Ranger Izzy
Returned from sunny Kenya having seen over 50 different animals; taken over 1000 photos, and got some good videos (I hope).

Will have to sort through and post the highlights later.

Ranger Izzy
So I came back from the school residential.

I have some bruises, but you haven't done it right if you don't have bruises. I managed to shift the cough I had at the start, but replaced it with a cold and a different cough. This cold though has come out properly so I can treat it with pills.

Now about to pack for my trip to Kenya tomorrow. It's crept up on me, but I don't take long to pack luckily. I'm not getting to the airport until 5pm, so time tomorrow to get the odd things together.

Will be back Easter Saturday.
