Making Plans and Mulled Wine!! (Early Friday before bed) [Nov. 28th, 2003|05:14 am]

I had no rehearsals this evening...apparently there was a costume fitting for the sheep and goats...

...at least I hope I didn't have a rehearsal...as I've lost the schedule I had printed up for this week...oops!

I *know* I'm in friday evening...vocal stuff...all the songs...and then off to work as usual.

I slept till 8pm today...from 7:30am in the morning!! Must have needed it tho...

Called in on my friend Spikey on the way to work, had a coffee... I've decided to move into his house in March next year. I'll have the attic for storage and the top 2 rooms for living in... I can't afford where I am now, and it would save me nearly 300 pounds a month in rent...and more savings once the bills and debts my ex left with me are paid off by mid-april.

This means I have a lot of stuff to get rid of/store somewhere, which I need to do anyway...and, as much as I love the house I'm in now, it's too damn expensive to keep on my own; it's a two double-bedroom maisonette with two bathrooms...and I'm on my own in it at 465 pounds a month rent!!

I am going to wangle Actor's Equity in the new year...and move on to some paid theatre work, (not that I'll drop the free work I do for the Barbican) and we are eager to get on with the music project we have talked about with Nick B and Herman as well...once I am in the same house I'll have access to Spikey's studio, audio/video equipment etc and I won't have to cart my 'cello all the way there either!! Also I shall work on theatre stuff from there and make new contacts.

I've known Spikey a damn long time from Theatre...he used to be the Sound/Lighting guy there, and was also the drummer/bassist in a few bands...he's a good reliable friend (in his early 40's) and I am quite looking forward to being in a house of like minded people...it will make it easier to channel myself into my work as well, as on my own I am easily distracted, and have a tendency to sit around doing eff all when I should be working on my own projects etc.

I'm looking around my living room now...christ there's so much tidying/sorting to be done by then!!

*withered sigh*

Well, work tonight was v. dull as usual...was on duty obs (ie. 'in charge')...but at least we got let out at 5am again...

I get paid today, so I'll be in bed at about 7am, get up at 12 and go in town...

I have lots of bills to pay as usual, things to post, maybe meet Jui-ehh!! and take a look in the new Westward Bound premises (fetish clothes/apparatus shop)...and I've also been told that there is a 'german market' in town...with stalls selling glasses of Mulled Wine...

Now, I'm not the sort of person to walk past a stall selling mulled wine and not have a tipple or two...

...so long as I'm not too squiffy before theatre...nice to warm my vocal chords with tho hehe...

Ok, I'm off!!

Ciao darlings!!

Those tented stalls are back again with a vengeance...and the german market has brought along about 10 wooden chalet-type affairs too...

OH, and that godawful carousel is slap in the middle still.

I'd like to crank that one up a gear or five and watch those kiddies whirl round screaming instead of the snails pace it goes at...not even a trot!!!

BAH HUMBUG!!!!!!!!

I know exactly what you mean about sitting around doing eff-all, and all that focus thing. It takes serious amounts of willpower to get motivated, although I find once things get warmed-up and you're moving, it starts to work; easier said than done, of course.

So you're going to enjoy that feeling you get when you've not eaten for ages, then you hit the supermarket... tasty.

Laters et al.
