I’m meant to be writing a 2000 word essay on the song Always on My Mind. However, I have just got to the point of listening to it so many times that I know every word and entry by electrically synthesised violins and as I was belting along at the top of my voice I suddenly realised… Read More Relating to Film Characters
Tuesday was a very exciting day as I had my driving test and I passed! No idea how I did it, the examiner was in a very lenient mood I think. At least I didn’t forget to put the hand break on and roll backwards into the examiners car like my grandmother or forget the… Read More What I did this week, Y1W47: I passed my driving test!
I did all day babysits on Monday and Tuesday this week which mainly involved cake. Monday’s cake was a Nigella Halloween number. The actual cake came out like a sort of thick pancake and I made the icing wrong so it hadn’t even set by the next day but the seven-year-old boy I was looking… Read More What I did this week: Y1W42: A lot of cake
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

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
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
I have just got back from tennis which was the wettest and coldest I have been in a long time. I got straight in the shower but my hands are still slightly numb. This is not helped by the fact that a) I can’t really hit backhands at the moment due to the bandaging around my… Read More What I did on 10 December 2015
I’m writing this a bit earlier than normal as I’m going out this evening. This morning we got our first Christmas card, from our friends in Barcelona. This is taking me quite a while to write as I’m only using one hand… I was making fudge for the tennis coaches (I think there would be an… Read More What I did on 8 December 2015
We don’t have a TV and we never have but that doesn’t mean we don’t watch a lot of moving pictures with sound. We bought our currant computer (our first one mit DVD drive) in house no. 8 and the first day we had it we sat down to watch our first film on it. We… Read More Watching moving pictures with sound
