Drinking habits, our fabulous new loos and the massive water works; did you see what I did there?

Now I’m not known for my drinking habit, even during my clubbing days I was never much of a challenge. No I’m afraid I’m a bit of a light-weight when it comes to booze so with not one but two drinking opportunities this week, I’m thinking of abstaining for a while.

More uniform crush confessions, dreaming of Poldark & a nice ‘thank you’ card

The first Monday of the month is always a favourite of mine, no #MondayMorningBlues for this lady, I not only had the usual weekly newsletter to write for our Theatre Friends but it was time to write my column for Lyme Online

A week of emergencies and our crowd control could stand down

Bank Holiday Mondays always discombobulate me and this week such was my day-disarray I completely missed out on my usual Friday treat from the Aroma Coffee Shop. Things weren’t helped when the phones decided to stop working

Practising my inner teacher skills and enjoying another prosecco party with fish & chips

I always wanted to be a teacher, right up to the point I left my all girls school and went to 6th form college and discovered there was a whole lot more out there than simply following in my mother’s footsteps. I now work in the wonderful world of theatre which more than satisfies my creative urges, but there is a little bit of teacher left inside. 

I’m still looking into lavatories and I’m certain we don’t have native tarantulas in this country

Not that I’m obsessed with lavatories but this week I spent well over an hour researching loo roll holders. You may say life is too short to spend so much time on such inconsequential detail but let me tell you, there is nothing so pleasing as using a facility that has been thought about.

Adventure awaits & there’s been a breakthrough with our lavatories

I feel like I need an adventure. I’m not sure if it’s because at long last I sent off my story to a publisher which always gives me a boost of confidence or because there is such a great atmosphere of success and high spirits at the theatre.

A clean sweep with an unwieldy broom

It was a relief to return to some semblance of normality after my week off, although I did have to spend the first hour of Monday morning sorting out the bomb site that was my office. Everything from quad sized posters to performers’ dirty hand towels, it looked like my sons had been in residence for a couple of days. Marketing aka John Puckey, told me he had had to chase after some of my paperwork that flew out of the office win

Surrendering to a greater power and ‘puppy blues’ is a thing

Sometimes you just have to throw in the towel and surrender to a greater power; which is why I didn’t update my blog last week and why today I had to make a sad decision. But let me tell you about my working week first.

Writing, research & reporting and why don’t people know what a ‘lavatory’ is?

There are some weeks I enjoy then there are others I really enjoy and this past week falls into the latter category.
It’s been a week of writing, research and reporting; not for the first time have I wondered why I didn’t pursue a career in journalism but thereby hangs another tale…if ifs and ands were pots and pans.

I’m that rock chick over there…just as soon as I’ve brought in the washing & cooked dinner

Apparently I look like the teacher from the musical hit ‘School of Rock’. I asked my sister who suggested I google it and just what is it that decides how big the raindrops are?
