I apologise for the lack of radio contact of late, but work is CRAAAZZZY busy, and to be quite frank, I am exhausted. We did 11 shoots in 13 days and all of them had a super quick turnaround. We are on the other side now, and it is LOVELY to see the bank balance and the sense of achievement of working under such pressure. I also think we have done some of our best work, so happy days all around!
Friday was a great day. I was really looking forward to a long overdue girls night out and we were going to a charity dinner in aid of debra for people who have the devastating skin disease. I picked the kids up from school, and quite literally was cooking their tea whilst applying fake tan and just as my lift arrived, Beansey tripped over and smashed his lip on his scooter that was lying at the bottom of the stairs. I could see straight away that it was bad, his top lip had split and his nose was all bloody and horrible. After a few minutes, the blood was still pouring so I took the younger two next door in their Pj's (thank you A and M as I know you'll be reading!) and dashed him up to A+E. We must have looked a right sight, I was all glammed up in a pink silk dress, with big hair and make up and he was in dirty old "garden" clothes covered in blood! We were seen very quickly and after about an hour we were discharged as thankfully the lip hadn't cut through the lip outline which would have involved plastic surgeons. My dress had blood on it and after dropping him home to HAW, I set off, two hours late for our dinner.
It was a FAB night, I am so SO lucky in that I have an amazing, supportive network of friends, and we always have such a giggle. I even won a Jo Malone gift box in the raffle which went a long way to calming me down after the events of the early evening!

We had a lovely dinner and then the highlight of the night was a beyonce singer, who was amazing. She got us all shaking our booty and after a few tequila shots, the DJ got me on the microphone to sing along with him, only for him to then tell me to "f**k off love, you're out of tune". It was so funny and as anyone who knows me will tell you, I really do think I can sing when I have had a few, we were literally wrestling over the microphone.
It was a great night with great friends and I can't wait for the next get together!!
Peace and Love
