It’s only when I am somewhere alone that I can really explore it. I can wander the streets, looking up to the top floor of the town houses, wondering who lives there. I can imagine the lives of the man and his son looking at travel books together in Daunt chatting together in French. When I’m alone I can spend… Read More London Alone
The beginning of the week was spent rehearsing and performing with my local youth orchestra. It’s always a mixture of enjoyable and frustrating. The whole orchestra could be so good if everyone turned up to all the rehearsals. I can see the conductor getting frustrated having to repeat himself constantly and the people who do… Read More What I did this week, Y1W51: Christmas!!
The first thing that happened to me this week was that I had Still Falling For You by Ellie Goulding going around my head for days after going to see Bridget Jones’s Baby on Sunday night. The film was so good though and Ed Sheeran was a lot better than I thought he would be.… Read More What I did this week, Y1W38: So many apples
I didn’t blog last week because it was possibly one of the most boring weeks to blog in history, consisting of clarinet practice and more clarinet practice leading up to a festival on Saturday where my clarinet broke in the first bar of Brahms’s 1st Clarinet Sonata. This week was much more interesting as I… Read More What I did this week, Y1W25: Voting!
I think that everyone has their ideal holiday. My sister wants to go shopping in New York. The mothership will go to any island that doesn’t involve an airplane. My father likes hot weather, preferably in South Africa and my brother loves skiing and walking holidays. There are a lot of places I would like to go on… Read More Top 10 Holidays
Ok, so the current house we live in (number 13) is probably one of the warmest ever. House number 12 should have been the warmest because we had underfloor heating in every room but the thermostats kept breaking so the bedrooms were mostly freezing cold. The kitchen in this house is warm around the Aga… Read More The Realities of Living in This House During the Winter
I discovered today why it takes so long to shoot a film. I got my family to help me film my script, which is due in tomorrow, with Playmobil and my phone. It took forever. Some things are probably easier with real people, like showing expressions other than smiling, but real people have opinions of… Read More New Years Resolutions and Filming
So this will be my last Christmas themed blog this season (hopefully, otherwise that would make me a very Christmas obsessed person) and I know that lots of people do blogs and vlogs about what they got for Christmas but I think that it’s far more interesting what I didn’t get for Christmas. I wrote my Christmas… Read More What I didn’t get for Christmas
Lots of people claim to get very depressed in the days after Christmas but I actually really enjoy it. Christmas itself tends to be nice but a bit stressful and exhausting with people staying and having to be on top form the whole time, smiling for every present and trying not to biff anyone up…… Read More The Aftermath of Christmas
Last day of advent! I got up early (for Christmas Eve) this morning and went last minute Christmas shopping with my sister and grandparents. Well, actually I went shopping by myself and my grandfather went shopping by himself and my grandmother and sister went shopping together fro my sister’s christmas present. I used my debit… Read More What I did on 24 December 2015
