Life as a commuter

'Commuting' is not an art i'm used to, nor have perfected. I guess living no more than 15  minutes from work walking means I never truly have commuted, unless you count my periodic trips into London for Theatre School and rehearsals a 'commute' (well, I did hit rush hour and have to get up at… Continue reading Life as a commuter

Blogmas: Day 11. Favourite festive film!

Favourite Christmas film... Hmm. This has reminded me that I have watched nativity way too few times this year! It's actually quite funny, right now i'm sitting listening to the Sweeny Todd soundtrack and thinking about whether it's acceptable to recommend that during this post... But no. I don't think it comes close to being… Continue reading Blogmas: Day 11. Favourite festive film!
