I have been a little slack on the old Blog front of late as I am still up to my neck on getting the new house in shape! It's getting there, but it a hard slog! I am also working on the launch of a 2nd business (more details coming soon) so all my spare time is getting eaten up!

So on the 25th of January I headed to Bath (Dave joined me too for a nice change!) and we spent the day wandering around the charity shops, book shops and sweetie shops of  Bath!

Sweetie Shop - Bath

That evening I was performing at the Ministry of Burlesque's "High Tease" at the Komedia. It is always a very busy, lively event with fab line ups, this one was no different! I was performing alongside Dusty Limits, Josephine Shaker, Elsie Diamond, Marvela MaeFayre and The Bastard Son Of Tommy Cooper!

I then enjoyed getting home after the gig to my own bed and heading to the carboot sale early the next morning! Here are some of my top finds from that bootsale!

After another busy week doing promotion, admin and tidying....I travelled to Birmingham last Saturday 2nd February to be the "Surprise" for a lovely lady on her hen do! She defiantly got a shock when I burst in wearing only 20 balloons!!

My Costume!
Again I was delighted to be able to get home to my own bed after the event and headed off to the carboot sale bright and early yesterday morning! It is my hobby and favourite past time, rummaging through boxes of old stuff!  Here is my picks of the day from yesterday!

I am also delighted to feature as "Cover Girl" on The Playhouse Cheltenham's Jan-June 2013 Brochure! The show will be there on 20th April, with Fandance workshops on 28th and 29th March too!
