Cute Signature

Someone in work sent me an email and at the bottom - they signed off with this:

Reading: 'The Big Sea' by Langston Hughes

Slightly confused as to why she wrote the title of the book she was currently reading at the end of each email, I had to ask her why and she said that she's been doing some work with the local libraries and they're all doing it.
Does anyone else do it? I think it's such a great idea.

Kind Regards,

Reading: 'Honey Trap' by Julie Cohen

Salford Arts Theatre

As well as working on the Christmas market this Christmas!? I've also been asked to perform in the Christmas show at the fab Salford Arts Theatre.

Christmas Cat and The Pudding Pirates is a fantastic family show and I'm really looking forward to start rehearsals.
We had a brilliant readthrough the other night and I think it's going to be a fab show.

So, those of you in the North West, looking for some Christmas magic - get booking your tickets now, as they're going fast. for more info!

Manchester's Christmas Market

I've been asked to work here over the Christmas period.

It will probably be freezing, but I bet it will be loads of fun!

The cutest idea EVER!

The Manchester Literature festival is almost upon us.
Click this link below, for the cutest idea, involving a map of Manchester and lots of writers.
Oooh, I may even pen a story for it myself!

Oh No...

Last full week of my lovely day job. I don't know if they can keep me on full time, but they may be able to keep me on part time - which I can live with.

Just realised my website hasn't been updated in ages, so that's the first thing to do once I get online at home!

Oooh, I'm really enjoying planning my musical. Lots of people thought 'Battered Egos' should have been a musical and have since begged me to turn it in to one, but I want to start a fresh new project.

My new musical now has a title, characters and juicy plot and I'll reveal all soon!

Watching Time Bars

I am on a very slow computer at the library. OK, I know I've been saying this for ages - but hopefully Gav and I will be connected to the Internet by next week. Our phone is up and running, so hopefully the Broadband will be next week - and I can't wait.

With one thing and another I've not had the Internet at home for about 4 months! I don't know how I managed without it when I was doing my play in July, it's so frustrating. One of those things you don't realise you rely on until you don't have it.

The writing of my musical is coming along. I'm at the planning stages and I love it so far! Keep you all posted!

Having a Go!

Just on a quick break at work to say that I've just thought of my next project!

You see my day job is uploading theatre/museum info to an arts based website and all morning I've been reading up on the latest shows to tour the North West - so here goes...

I'm going to write a musical!

Yes, I'm going to give it a bloomin' good go anyway!

Obviously these were the photos they used to promote it. We now have a Sally and Gavin stamp on the place.
What you can't see from these photos is that the lounge/kitchen is huge and we have 2 sofas and we have a Juliet balcony and...
God, I'm boring myself now, basically - we love the place and just wanted to share it with you all!

Almost- But Not Quite!

OK, it's coming! I've almost got Broadband sorted at home... Oooh, I've missed you all. There are times where I think 'I must blog about that...' and then obviously can't get online and then when I do, something else has happened - blah, blah, blah!

All is good. Gav and I are feeling settled at the flat. It's such a lovely flat - it's so calm as well and very stylish in black and white. We love it. And Gav kindly let me have the BIG bedroom with the en suite - Oooh, I've never had a room so big. I have 2 huge wardrobes and so much space that I could have the whole cast of Starlight Express performing a roller skate finale and there would still be room to walk through - OK, slightly dramatic, but it is HUGE! And we have a HUGE hallway - where both my bookcases - full of books give it that homely feel as soon as we walk in!

Writing is going swimmingly - I've just finished writing my latest play CAMP 360 - for Blueberry Youth theatre. It's set in a Brat Camp for teenagers, and I'm chuffed to bits with it and hope the theatre and the kids love it.

My job is BRILLIANT. I work for a theatre marketing company and I'm busy updating 3 websites - promoting theatre shows etc. I've been asked to cover for a month and don't want to leave, I love it so much. I'm hoping they'll keep me - either that or I'm prepared to chain myself to the desk.

Other news - I finished reading JUST SAY YES - by Phillipa Ashley and it was FAB - so FAB that I actually stayed up half the night to finish it!

Err, that's all for now.

But there will be more, more, more soon!
