More is more

This week I fell in love with my panto all over again. We have had a rocky couple of weeks, mainly due to external pressures, but this week I have turned a corner.

The songs sound great, the fight sequence has been blocked and looks fantastic. The dancing is progressing well, considering we started so late. My choreographer and I were in the village hall until 11.30pm on Monday recreating the final scene from Dirty Dancing (minus the lift!). Crazy, but such fun. I have started work on the programme. Everyone is working so hard to make this a success.

Today I have been making costumes for my dame, Flora Mopp. I have learned some new techniques (god bless YouTube) and the frilly bits are wired with plastic strimmer wire which gives the 'lettuce' edging. As you can see, my mantra is more is more.

The advertising banners designed by my clever, talented, daughter (thanks Hannah) are up around the local area. Here I am on the roundabout with the banner. I drive past here most days, sometimes I go round twice to have another look. It makes me grin every, single, time.
