Today was an amazing and full day! I went to a fashion show, eat/drank yummy treats with my friends Nic and Paddy, wondered around the National Portrait Gallery, went on antique adventure, and performed my show! I'll tell you more about it tomorrow!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Mine has consisted of work and performing! Let me go back a step to my last post. I mentioned that things started getting crazy for me when I started "work", but I failed to mention where I work! I am currently working as front of house for the Palace Theatre, home of Singin' In the Rain! I am also currently in an Off- West End production of One Touch of Venus. So that's what I have been spending most of my time doing!
Christmas peppers and Crabbies.
Now - stepping back in time.
This Christmas (as I mentioned here) was my first Christmas away from home. I was pretty terrified. I just couldn't imagine a Christmas away from home, away from my family and our traditions. But luckily I met the loveliest Scottish girl named, Sam. She is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread. After only working with Sam for a week, she invited me over to hers for "Orphans Day", aka Christmas. She invited myself and a few other of her orphan friends over for the big day and I am very proud to say, we did very well. The day went off without a hitch, regardless if feeling slightly fragile from the amount of Christmas Eve margaritas!
One of my many Christmas Crabbies.
Skypemas with Nicola.
All of our glorious goodies ready to be made, eaten and drunk!
All gone. Christmas Eve margaritas!
Orphans Day Dinner!
Camembert with maple syrup. We ate a lot of cheeses. More like "All the cheeses".
Roast veg, ginger carrots and brussel sprouts.
What a feast!
My Mum's apple crumble recipe!
More amazing deserts.
More Skypemas with the fam.
I am just so thankful for this Christmas and my new friends.
I know that I have been missing in action for the past few months. This is mostly due to London kicking my butt, and work eating up a lot of my time! Over the next two weeks I hope to get caught up with all of my favourite photos still on my camera from last year. So here we go! Things started to get really crazy for me in December of last years, so that's where I will start! I'm not yet sure of the style of these posts, so bear with while I figure things out!
This is the beautiful view from work.
A closer look.
I spent some time in Notting Hill doing some babysitting for a family friend and fell in love a little bit.
I love how colourful and picture-perfect Notting Hill is!
I'm not sure if I will ever get over train stations like this. There is so much space and light - love!
I had so many beautiful nights before work in Covent Garden/ Leister Square!
Christmas at Seven Dials.
Two of my favourite accessories!
I was living with a lovely young lady by the name of Sarah for the month of December. We didn't know each other at all before rooming, but we got along so well. Sarah was always buying fun things for the place such as this paper roll!
So that it for now folks, Christmas is coming up next as we go back in time! Happy Monday!
