Well, hello hello HELLO!
Welcome to another weekly round of WOYWW. I'm still having trouble with posting comments as on some blogs I only seem to be able to comment at home, so it may take me a while to visit some of you!
If you haven't got a clue what I'm on about go HERE for all the deets, and the fabulous Mrs Dunnit will let you have a snoop about....
So, what goeth on in the world of Morti, eh?
Not much. Too tired for much! We've all been hit by a bout of post-panto sickness - namely colds and chest infections. I think that might be down to a bit too much smoke from the pyros they used, but hey, what do I know? LOL. Nonetheless, we are bright spirited and happy.
On my desk this week we see the beginnings of a card for a colleague at work. Having epically failed to find a large, plain Good Luck card which didn't say Leaving or Goodbye or Retirement or Exam, it befalls me to make one that says "Good Luck in Hong Kong". See, the colleague isn't actually leaving the company, he's going to head up the Hong Kong office as they are sorely in need of someone over there who can make command decisions and take them to the next level. Go, Dean! And that's where I step in, as chief card maker. Having won the card competition (by default as the only entry!) I get the poke in the ribs. No worries. Watch this space. I see a golden chinese dragon coming up.
As for the next few weeks....well.....ever the suckers for punishment, PVADS held auditions the day after Panto finished, for the spring play "The Darling Buds of May". Mr B desperately wanted to do it, auditioned, got THE main part. Muggins here went along to support, knowing darned well it's the only way I'll get to see anything of him when he doesn't have his nose in a book. And wound up landing a role too. Deep joy. So much for quiet Wednesday & Sunday evening.
But then you can't argue when your fella gets presented with THIS after the Panto at the party - for The Defining Performance. Or rather, as they put it, they presented it to his leg, for having gone through hell for his art..... ROFL.....
In all seriousness though, it's a genuine award PVADS gives after each show they do, if they feel that something or someone has warranted it, and Mr B was one such individual who took the panto and the society to a whole new level with his performance as Long John Silver. People were coming up to members and asking where he'd hidden his leg, and was he really one-legged etc....LOL.... Bless - I'm so proud of him. And it wasn't without cost - two shows on the Saturdays and by half-way through the second he'd about had enough, his knee was in a lot of pain. He soldiered through though, and seems to be ok now!
So, watch this space......... catch you all around!
