Well Done to everyone at today’s recalls. It was a rather long day…wine is in order…
This worries me…are we becoming THAT lazy?!
Excuse the language but…well the sign has a point….
How better than to spend a sunny day in London than with this lovely lady, sangria and tapas!!
So today has been spent with me in pretty much a permanent state of pain. To remove the sunglasses is to kill my brain!!
Today I watched my Dad say “I Do” and my brother make a speech. It was a very cool day
The Groom and Best Man having a bit of relax time before the big day tomorrow! Don’t they look cute?!
Time with Dad
Brother and Sister getting a little sauced at the airport!
So many lovely comments and people supporting my Myra project. Thank you all so much for taking the time to watching it, tell others about it and give me your feedback! Don’t let this stop you….!!!
A short film based on Britain’s first female serial killer, Myra Hindley. Written and performed by Kate Hollowood. The script was created entirely from Myra’s own words using interviews, her three autobiographies and transcripts.
Special thanks to Steve Montgomery and Abbie Lucas for all their hard work. Thanks also owed to those who have supported this project since I started it over two years ago, in particular my Mum and Sam who have been there at every step.
I apologise to anyone offended by the content, particularly the victims families.

Red sky at night…!
It’s the first day of spring, I’m back down South so naturally a walk along the beach was on the cards!!
A beautiful day in London
Happy Mummy’s Day!!
As it is the day we all celebrate our Mum’s and take the time to thank them for all they have done and continue to do for us, I have put together a list of the top ten things I’ve learned from mine. Today, I want to share that with her, and all of you of course! (list in no particular order…)
1. Make Mistakes: It is the best, fastest and often the hardest way to learn. However, the mistakes you make teach you about yourself, make you human and help in your future.
2. Fall in Love: No matter how many people hurt you, how scared you are of having your heartbroken, or how many men take you for granted. Don’t build a wall around yourself, don’t push people away and don’t shut yourself down.
3. Be Forgiving: No one is perfect, we all make mistakes and being unforgiving only makes you bitter. You cannot judge anyone for their choices without stepping into their shoes. So if someone seeks forgiveness, forgive. If someone doesn’t seek forgiveness, forgive them anyway, in your heart. That last one is harder to do than to write in a sentence!
4. Don’t be Afraid to be Alone: Don’t settle, bounce around from relationship to relationship or stay with someone who makes you unhappy. Being alone can be liberating, fun and goo for your soul!
5. Be Kind: To those you love, to those who have been unkind to you, to those who least deserve it and to those who deserve it the most. Be kind to yourself and to your family (even when you really want someone to take all the bad stuff out on!)
6. Never Give Up: On yourself, on your dreams or on others. Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t/won’t achieve something. If you believe you can and you work hard, you’ll get anywhere you want to go. If you are passionate about anything or anyone, do all you can to make that feature heavily in your life and don’t give up until you succeed!
7. Life is not Fair: I don’t mean by telling me that nothing will get handed to you, opportunities don’t come knocking and money doesn’t grow on trees (although she did say that a lot!)! I mean by preparing me for being kicked back, rejected and missing out, despite all my best efforts. Sometimes, life isn’t fair. You just have to take the rough with the smooth and hope that everything happens for a reason.
8. Travel: There is no better way to broaden your horizons (literally)! It makes you independent, opens you up to different cultures and ways of life, helps you grow as a person and it is amazing fun! Besides, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
9: It’s Good to Talk and it is good to Cry: A problem shared really is a problem halved and you’ll never feel better until you’ve let it all out and had a good cry! You don’t have to feel silly, weak or childish. You don’t need to ask anyone’s permission to cry. Asking for help is welcomed and just needing an ear to chew (not literally) is OK too.
10. Respect Yourself: I mean this in every way! Don’t smoke, eat your 5-a-day, don’t sell yourself short (or cheap!), drugs are pointless and protection exists for more than one reason! If you respect yourself, others will respect you too.
It’s Paddy’s Day so it’s the one time of year I attempt to drink a Guinness…horrible stuff!! Have a great one all!
Some beautiful roses, just because!
Ahh!! I lost my shoe…A true cinderella story without the castle and the ball and the fairy godmother… Oh and I was running UP the stairs…
A quiet stroll along the beach before I head back to London
Been all sentimental and reminiscent today…gone through the old family albums. Here is a particular favourite of my brother and I…
I’d like to introduce you all to my new favourite accessories boutique, Luna on the Moon! They create and sell quirky, eccentric and fun accessories smothered in glitter fit for anyone who wants to add a little something special to their outfit. Designer Kirsty Pate has a brilliant creative mind and comes up with increasingly kooky pieces. However, she also likes to be set a challenge and will custom make pieces for anyone who wants a one off!
Luna on the Moon sell everything from headbands, brooches, hair-slides and novelty bags in a range of styles, sizes and designs. They are perfect for a special occasions like Birthdays, Christmas, Hen-parties and Fancy-dress but if you have a more unique everyday style, you’ll be sure to find something you like here!
Last Christmas, my brothers girlfriend asked Kirsty to make 9 individual Christmas hats as a gift for my Mum, who is Christmas-crazy. They became a real talking-point and a welcome change from the usual Santa hats and paper cracker-crowns! I also got Kirsty to make me a special Valentines themed headband to add a little fun to my outfit. These pieces come with a sense of humour and make people smile…especially her hen-party range of penis shaped bags and headbands!
If you, like me, like to wear something a little different and a little quirky, please check out Kirsty’s store HERE! Most pieces are around £15 which I find incredibly reasonable for such individual, well-made and high quality products. I can’t help but grin every time I see her collection and I’ve featured a LOT of pictures in this post because there is far too much good stuff to share…I hope you enjoy! Check out www.lunaonthemoon.co.uk for more information, links to her store and for Kirsty’s contact details.
First day casting for Perilous Pursuit. Saw some brilliant actors -well done everyone who came along.
