Adventures in the Screen Trade

  Been relaxing a bit after Macbeth, missing doing it and still find myself saying lines every now again. It always takes time to come down from working up to a performance like that, slow the adrenalin and deal with the reality of life after! However I am lucky with great friends and this last week as been varied and entertaining. I spent a long weekend in Suffolk with my closest friend Jenni at her house there, what a beautiful county ...

Here I am in beautiful Portsmouth, staying in an extraordinary Maritime Club, begun as a home for homeless sailors while on land, with much history and close to the historic port and the modern shopping centre, with its iconic spinnaker tower.   You may have gathered I am rather partial to the ocean, love to sail, walk/sit on a beach, watch the sea birds and creatures and of course the boats.  I am sleeping like a baby here...wonderful.   ...
