Diabetes Week 2018

#TalkAboutDiabetes It’s Diabetes Week 2018 (11th-17th June) and we want everyone to #TalkAboutDiabetes!

How are we still body shaming?

Let’s just take a moment to remind ourselves what year it is… 2018. Yes, it’s 2018 and there are still so many things wrong in the world.

Panto season is done!

Such a lovely gift and I was definitely pleased as punch to see him. It really is great to be back! The restContinue reading “Panto season is done!”

Woahhh we’re halfway there!

That’s right! Including our rehearsal week we are officially just over halfway through our panto run! We are coming to the end of our second week on the road and to be honest it can’t come quick enough! I am absolutely exhausted!

Panto progress and World Diabetes Day!

So here’s my first blog from pantoland! Well, to be precise, panto rehearsals. I’m currently residing in Stafford (or not too far from) whilst we have our week of rehearsing. We’re staying in a very large ex farm house which has a converted rehearsal room on site which is very handy when we start rehearsingContinue reading “Panto progress and World Diabetes Day!”

Yes, today I began packing various essentials for the panto season as I will be heading away for 5 and a half weeks as of Sunday.
