Dollypop Theatre on tour

In the past two weeks I have been part of an amazing group of women in Dollypop, debuting our show Strip and taking it on tour, which continues in Bristol in two weeks. In all honestly I have managed this in a haze of jet lag and illness and whilst being at a pressure point on […]

Dubai Diary 3

We also did a pop up show in the Madinat Souk, which is a tourist souk near the theatre. Performing in a public space is tricky because people aren’t there to focus on you, so you have to work really hard to get them to stop talking and pay attention. The space is also totally different […]

Dubai diary day one

For the next week I am going to be doing a diary of my time in Dubai. I do want to do another couple of blogs to close off my 28 blog challenge but that will be Internet permitting. Today was a special day, with our tired heads we went to a school for a […]

Five Fun Friday Favourites – January Yoga Poses

January has been full of online challenges this year. Not only have I been doing a 28 day blogging challenge but I have also just come to the end of a month long yoga challenge with @rebelaffair and hosts @nwoy, @jennifermartinyoga, @actionjacquelyn, @northcarolina_yogagirl. It has been an amazing challenge to do as it has connected […]

Who is mentoring you?

I am a freelancer, I have huge ambitions and what sometimes seems like a little voice, by myself I can’t make all the changes that I want to see in the world. I need to have people in my life that help me to gain the clarity, confidence and impetus I need to keep stepping […]

Good day everyone, I thought that it was about time that I introduce you to my YouTube channel, Spitting Diamonds, I like being on camera, I and I like to talk about myself without interruption so this is a great medium for me :p (as you can imagine a blog about narcissism is in the […]

Explore my shelves…..

I nearly didn’t write today, I am struggling with overwhelming need for sleep (following on from yesterday’s blog) and I didn’t feel like I could do justice to any of the writing that I really want to do. But I had a need for me to not let anything defeat my challenge to blog every day […]

Ow, my body hurts

I suffer with problems in my joints, they have in the past been identified as autoimmune/connective tissue problems however I don’t have the blood markers to indicate a specific disease and my flare ups that debilitate are thankfully few and far between. But they are back. My pointing finger (which is that?) on my right […]

Hey diddly dee – an actor’s life for me

I’m performing this weekend and it makes me so happy. There are very few times in life when the real essence of me escapes the everyday shell that I wear, but when I am on stage (or in front of a camera) my life-force explodes showering over the unsuspecting audience. What I am saying is that […]

Happy Birthday and a Farewell Compliment to Janey McLeod

Today is a special post, to my friend Jane McLeod, who is having a birthday today and who is also leaving Bath and leaving The Egg (Theatre Royal Bath) for warmer, sunnier climes. Ok that’s a lie, she is going to be moving “up north”, but her sun will be metaphorically burning bright as she […]
