Thursday 29 August 2013


Well.... life has certainly got in the way over the last few months! In attempt to catch up with myself, I give you August 2013 in a nutshell!

On the 1st Aug I made my annual trip to Edinburgh Fringe Festival (my 10th year performing in it!) I performed at a few shows throughout the Festival including Ali McGregor's Late Nite Variety Night Nite at the Assembly Checkpoint, Silhouette Burlesque at The Tron Kirk and Vegas! at the HMV Picture House.

I also did a little detour in the middle of the run to perform at the "Best Bar None Awards 2013" in Nottingham and squeezed in a sneaky bit of bargain hunting at the local Antiques Centre!

To round up the month I spent a lovely much needed pamper weekend with my parents and best pal Ruthie in a North Berwick hotel to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary, Ruth's birthday and also 10 years of Ruth and I's friendship! 

We ate and drank our body weight in luxury gourmet, went scouring in charity shops and took a speed boat trip to the Bass Rock to see the largest Gannet colony in the world! It was a sight to behold!

I jetted off home on Tuesday and tomorrow I head to London... deep breath! Another Fringe in the Bag!
Until  next year!

Last week Dave and I enjoyed a well earned and much needed week off! We had a road trip holiday spending three days in Cornwall. We went Whale & Dolphin Watching, visiting Dave's Family, car booting and fish n' chip eating!

We then spent the next few days indulging in five star luxury in Stratford at the Ettington Park Hotel. We saw Shakespeare's birthplace and spent midsummer's night in his home town! We also ate amazing food, swam, walked and rummaged in an antiques barn!

Now we are back to work and that week went way too quickly...

Here is a little photo diary of our trip!
