A quick catch up. Time is going too fast and seemed chaotic until I went home to my parents for the weekend and they reminded me that time is flexible, and to reach out more and ask for help instead of trying to do everything myself. When I was a child waiting for the school play or a dance competition, time seemed to amble along but now it has sped up at a frightening speed.
My interpreter/actor sadly got ill over Christmas and spent several weeks in hospital hoping to get better ready for rehearsals to begin in a couple of week’s time but sadly they had to pull out of the project. I’ve been rushing around like a whirling dervish trying to organise their replacement, I’ve found a BSL actress called Naomi, I’ll tell you all about the cast and creatives behind the project soon, but I still require some assistance on the Winsford leg of the tour so that’s why you’ve not heard from me for a couple of weekends.
Mum, Dad and I created an educational booklet for all the children, there are double the number of children than expected so I’ve been rushing around fundraising to get the extra funds to print the extra booklets. Then we started on the set design this last weekend. It’s amazing what we achieved in a short time window!
My friend Gill is busy making pom-pom hedgehogs for the children who don’t have time to make their own, sadly we will need to collect them up at the end of each show and they won’t be able to keep them, but at least it will inspire them to make their own.
My dear friend Hilary is popping over to see my Mum today to see if she can help to sew up the set fabric! She has been an amazing help and suggested ways of securing the side panel scenes with lacing string and volunteered to make all the scenes the same length.
More soon xx a massive thanks to everyone who has helped so far, I couldn’t do this without their help and I truly appreciate it.
