2018

This is my first update since 2013. Yeah! I’m on this. So how are you? ENOUGH ABOUT YOU THIS IS ABOUT ME NOW.

So I moved to Folkestone and I’m really smug about my garden and the air quality here. I love The Creative Foundation and Improv Gym- hooray for new friends and oxygen.

I have just finished filming on Julia Davis’s new comedy for Sky… more on that soon. And Lee and Dean is now available on DVD:

I am still performing with Showstopper on tour and in the West End.

AND Sue Harrison (fellow Showstopper) and I have completed our sitcom. Who would like to make this with us please?

I am also cutting a NEW SHOWREEL with the marvellously talented Andrew Pugsley (fellow Showstopper). More soon.

Great- that didn’t hurt too much did it? I shall vow to update you more on stuff. I am trying to learn photoshop- so send me your top tips pleases.

SKILLS/ You learn something new every day…

I was thinking. Most people have an “angle” on their blogs. My dad writes one about birds in and around Dungeness (sometimes he writes about moths and flowers and his dog). My mum doesn’t write one, but if she did it’d be about making things (she recently made me 3 dresses, a cardie, a quilt, put buttons on four of my cushion covers, fixed my curtains, made my son a quilt, 2 blankets, made my sister an amazing bag which matches a skirt she made for me- forgot that). My comedy partner (Ruth Bratt) writes proper clever wordy wordly stuff about issues of importance with a touch of feminism. She makes me think. She also makes me think I should have more strong opinions about things. Here’s an opinion- I THINK WOMEN SHOULD GO GREY.
For now, I am going to share with you what I learn, realise and see- I am going to be me- I’m good at that most of the time.

SO let’s get started… Today I noticed that tupperware can gather pretty fast in an office. I also have learnt that my new landlord “is happy” for me to turf his previously sky-high weeded and poo-ridden garden (he’s soooo kind) and that remembering things is an art form and a wonder. Isn’t it interesting how you suddenly remember you owe Dylan £25 for setting up your website, or that you were really moved by something in a film or a play? (The painted Veil with Edward Norton… boo hooo). I recently got new headshots and a new reel with help from my amazing supportive friend (Mr Andrew Pugsley- face of an angel). He’s good at technical things. You’ve gotta wanna though haven’t you? Technology doesn’t float my boat.  Do you ever think you might discover a skill, like a really good one that noone else has? Sometimes this skill will be lucrative (like the dude in Social Network- don’t watch it- who invented facebook) and sometimes the skill will be niche (like my skill for reaching things on high shelves without the aid of a stool). I’m also very good at smelling things. I have an excellent sense of smell and when I pass people on the street I shout “Cool Water” and ” Gucci Rush”. I’m thinking about selling this service: “IF YOU’VE GOT A SMELL, I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IT IS” . I’m also good at noticing hair continuity in films. In a universe far away these are excellent skills to have…
