I had a fantastic couple of days in Norfolk helping out with a filming project run by Media Projects East and my lovely friend and super historian Neil Storey. I used my wonderful and adaptable Mary Kay makeup products to makeup a couple of farmers, a landlord, a couple of knights and a Saracen…and not forgetting the blood splattered arm on the beach!! I also got to muck in as a sound person and photographer which was fun – I should think they have regretted given me the camera though as I love taking pictures and probably took far too many ;)
On the second day of filming I got my first ever trip on the broads as we sailed around in a Norfolk Wherry boat that was about 95 years old and stunning.
It was really good fun and rewarding and I can’t wait to see the finished product which will be screened on Dec 1st in Norwich.
Little puppy Willow isn’t so little anymore, she’s now 6 months old! We are lucky to have the recreation ground just across the road and the strip of land everyone round here calls ‘the back field’ right by the house and they’re great for short walks. When we take Willow for longer walks we tend to go to Cherry Hinton Hall or the Gog Magog Downs which are both only about 10mins from the house and we can let Willow off of here lead there so she can have a good run around. She’s such a pretty little dog and has lovely colouring, I haven’t regretted getting her at all, dogs can be such a big responsibility to take on but Willow has just made us all happier and isn’t really any trouble at all. She hasn’t really chewed anything really badly while she’s been teething but she has just learnt to help herself to things out of the bathroom bin and how to stand up on her back legs and turn the toilet roll round and round so a line comes down which she can then run off with – just like the Andrex puppy! I can’t wait to take her up to Hunstanton to the sea and beach and she what she makes of all that J
