At what age do you stop playing fun games after dinner? Tonight I was reminded again just how much fun it is to play parlour games whilst honing my skills in a variant of 'Mafia'.


NB - I am a terrible liar under pressure.

Benalla, I expected you to have at least a sausage sizzle at your polling booth, even if you didn't have the 'I Voted' stickers.

Disappointed. I feel it's my constitutional right to have a sausage sizzle whilst putting the evil Liberal party last on my ballot paper.

"Op Shop Bingo" was the theme and the students took it to the extreme.

Also, Articulate. How is it I've never played this before? It's awesome fun!

Met a troubled kid today who lit up when she met our theatre grads... it was like she'd finally found her 'people'. Made my heart happy.

Well Benalla, you're winning on the accommodation stakes. This bed is: (a) huge; and (b) super comfy.

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

Kicking goals left, right and centre today... need some decent sleep tonight though - another big week on the road begins tomorrow!

Monday, 24 November 2014

Feeling drained post-Natimuk. Need sleep.

When Friday night's dream/nightmare edges into Sunday's reality.

Yoiks.

Wow. What an amazing response to our shows from the locals in Natimuk. So many 'SOLD OUT' stickers being put up on the show board!

So impressed with the professionalism and enthusiasm displayed by my third years today. We are rockin' it in Natimuk!!!

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Well that was a long day's travel and bump-in. Time for bed in my 'just-like-granny's-spare-single-room' accommodation.

I think an early night is in order... two weeks of tour managing a group of twenty-five, twenty-something actors to regional Victoria begins tomorrow!

Vale, (Bestie Ems') Uncle George. One of the nicest, funniest, most interesting gentlemen I ever had the pleasure of meeting.

My tribe is full of nutty, whacky, wonderful people and I love each and every one of them.

Friday, 14 November 2014

I don't know what I'm more freaked out by... the plot twists in tonight's Scandal, or my 75yo mother texting me her first ever selfie. 

Thursday, 13 November 2014

Lovely catch up with the two Belfast travellers at lunch today - they had some fun stories!

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Apparently tomorrow's going to be a scorcher... wonder if I can work from home the WHOLE day?!*




* And by working from home I mean sitting on my balcony in a deck chair. I really do need to go into work for at least a couple of hours though...

Tuesday, 11 November 2014

I should possibly be stressing about the fact that in 3 weeks I won't have a job. For some reason I'm not though... and even that's not stressing me.

Que Sera Sera, as Doris would say.

The Newsroom is back and Sorkin is smashing it. Happy Freakin' Monday!

First BFF14 film for me tonight. Gorgeous. Brilliant work from Billy Connolly and the three young actors. The youngest had me (and the rest of the cinema) in stitches from the get-go. Stunning Scottish scenery, which always makes me nostalgic. If you're an Outnumbered fan, you'll love it.

Saturday, 8 November 2014

So much to do today, so little motivation to do it.

Think I'll just watch Scandal.

Friday, 7 November 2014

Well that was a very long, very expensive lunch... (started at 1pm, finished at 8pm). Bloody delish though.

Thursday, 6 November 2014

My internet seems to be dropping out every five or so minutes at the moment... except for the hour this Thursday and the hour last Thursday, when I've been on important Skype calls with the UK. I don't know why that is, but I'm not questioning it, Universe!

House - clean.
Laundry - done.
Groceries - bought.

Ready for the week.
All my friends are instagramming pics of themselves all dolled up for Melbourne Cup.

I've been in sweatpants all day with my hair scraped up into a bun, sans makeup.

So not a socialite.

I know when summer hits I'll be really glad that my flat is so cool inside, but right now I wish it wasn't. I go outside and it's lovely, warm, t-shirt weather and then come inside and I need a sweatshirt and socks. RIDICULOUS.

Saturday, 1 November 2014

Spent the entire day in my pjs catching up on crap TV. Really needed a lazy Saturday.
