London Audition

So on Sunday, G had an audition with London talent and modelling agency Daisy and Dukes. Unfortunately she was unsuccessful but being her first big audition we were totally expecting that and went more for the experience. She was very nervous before she went in and came out totally relaxed which was exactly what I was hoping, now she knows what to expect next time the nerves will hopefully be less!

Having recently done panto and this audition being last minute, G read her lines from that and sang Anything from Oliver as that’s something she’s been working on at theatre school. She had good fun and really took a lot from the experience and that’s all I could want for her and as we were in north London we also managed to squeeze in a visit to one of my favourite places, Camden Market, with my Dad who took who took us along so a good day was had by all.

Homemade Chunky Guacamole. 

Everyone I make this for seems to love it so I thought I’d share my recipe here. I try to have avocados a few times a week as they’re so good for the skin but they can get a bit boring so this is a great way of spicing them up a bit.

I use –

3 very ripe avocados

1 small red onion, chopped.

1 tomato, chopped.

Handful of chopped coriander.

Juice of half a lime.

Pinch of salt and cayenne pepper. 

Then literally just mash it all up with a fork! Absolutely delicious and kids like it too, I’ll either have it on some rice cakes or toast but of course would be great as a dip or on nachos.


Hiya, welcome to my blog.

So first post usually starts with a bit of an about me and what to expect so here goes…!

About Me.

I’m a 32 year old, single, working Mummy of one.

I’m a part-time administrator and qualified beauty therapist.

My daughter is 9 and is truly wonderful. She makes me ridiculously proud on a daily basis with her kindness and intelligence, but she’s also a mega show off so, swings and roundabouts and all that hey? 2 years ago she decided she wanted to be an actress (I’ve been waiting for her to tell me that since she could talk, we all knew…) since then she has been in feature film The Four Warriors, pantomimes and shows and short films for local film makers. She takes musical theatre lessons at the wonderful Groundlings Theatre School in Portsmouth. We have a lot of fun but it’s also sometimes quite a struggle, being a single mum with a job and no car, so I wanted a place to share the ups and downs of our crazy little life.

I have a very dry, verging on inappropriate, sense of humour. If it’s one of those ‘I shouldn’t laugh’ moments, you can guarantee I’m already laughing.

We live on the South Coast, in a rented house with our little superdog Yorkie ‘Lola’.

I like to cook. I try to make things as healthy as possible (not because I’m a SuperMum but because I’m a fat bastard and I’m constantly on a diet) so will post a few recipes of the fat free(-ish) dishes I like to make.

I love vintage fashions and interiors so will also be posting idea’s and showing the crap I pick up in charity shops and car boot sales.

Hope you enjoy reading!
