Yes, as the title suggests, I pretty much spent valentines alone, despite actually having a boyfriend. But we’ll get into that later…
I had an exciting day on Sunday as I got up early to go to london to try and become an extra in the film adaption of Les Miserables. A ridiculous number of people turned up (like 7000?) and there were only 300 roles that needed filling (ha! only!). A lot of people didn’t even get through the doors, luckily I somehow managed to.
Once i was in we were asked to fill in a form, then got measurements taken and a photograph. Apparently I should find out before the end of the month so fingers crossed!
After coming home from the auditions the boyfriend and I decided to go on a little date. Since he saw the adverts for Star Wars in 3D he’s been wanting to go and see it so that seemed like the obvious choice.
We’d both already seen the movie so knew the story line and what to expect, but the 3D definitely enhanced the experience. The pod racing, the flight in space, the fight scenes. Everything just seemed so much bigger and more exciting, although I guess the big screen could have contributed to that as well. In fact i don’t even think he wanted to see it for the 3D, he just wanted to see Star Wars in the cinema.
Monday passed with no big events and was rather boring, but as we all know, today (or yesterday as it is past midnight, whoops!) is valentines.
I’ve spent pretty much the whole of valentines on my own. Woke up at 8 to the boyfriends alarm, played Skyrim until 12 (It was a lazy day ok) then wandered into town on the search for fabric to make his valentines present. However, I couldn’t really find any nice fabrics and instead bought a t-shirt with a lion on it (something i’ve always wanted, it was love at first sight).
Eventually, with the help of my amazing smart phone (seriously how did I ever cope without?), I found that there was a big fabric store about a 5 minute drive away!
I only went in for one bit of fabric but ended up coming back with 3…Something that seems to happen everytime I buy fabric. I seriously need someone to come with me to fabric stores and stop me spending too much.
I bought some polkadot to go with another polkadot for an apron I have in mind, so I guess that’s acceptable.
I also got this amazing, wipeable material, almost like linoleum. It has big crayons on it and i think will make the perfect craft apron for a child. I’m so excited to use it, i just hope that it doesn’t break my needle. So i’ve decided I can get away with that purchase too.
The last fabric was a stripey brown, grey, white and black that was actually what i’d gone there for, so obviously that was acceptable too. This was to make a nice tie for my boyfriend as he’s been asking me for one for ages and what a perfect time to give him one! (plus I have loads left to make more ties as the material turned out really nice)
I’m just waiting for him to come back from work now to give it to him, i think he thinks i haven’t got him anything so it will be a nice surprise.
I would love to hear about what kind of things anyone else made (or bought) for their valentines.
Till next time, Stay happy!
Well it’s been a busy few weeks and it’s about to get even busier!
First off i went for an actors evaluation a couple of weeks ago with a company that seems to be quite well known (at least they’ve trained a few famous people and just got someone a main role in skins). It didn’t go amazingly well, but wasn’t a complete failure either. It was clear that I have no idea about the audition process (having never even touched on it before), my lisp is about ten times worse on camera that it is face to face, my acting is too used to the stage and not the camera.
Basically it came about that I had potential, but there was a lot of work to be done. I’ve signed up for some courses with them and hopefully by the end of it i’ll be invited into their agency!
Other exciting news, after I got my sewing machine for my birthday I’ve started trying to make some random things, and I’ve actually been quite impressed with the results!
First I made a small pouch, then a very wonky but pretty purse, followed by a nice bag. The bag i’m actually very impressed with. Now i’m making a new, bigger bag to take with me to V Fest this friday.
Talking about V Fest, I have a spare ticket and would definitely appreciate someone buying it. (Shameless Plug)
I can’t wait! I’m sure it’ll be amazing!
Next week i’m also going away…to Amsterdam. It’s a friends 21st and so we’re going to have a manly weekend. Apparently I have to act like a guy, so basically not scream at the thought of a sex museum and porn show. I think I can handle that.
Oh yeah, and did I mention I’ve also signed up for scuba diving lessons? I’ve always wanted to do it and just found theres a club in my town. Should be pretty awesome!
‘Till next time!
