For the next three weeks I won’t be posting as much if at all. I’m taking a little time off for myself.
Reason being, I was recently asked back to the theatre to do some dressing work for a touring show that’s coming. It’s two week’s work eight shows a week. Over the last few months, I’ve been working like crazy on my books, my website etc. etc. and just feel I need to properly take some time out for myself and take it easy, so I don’t go in to this work tired or stressed.
As many of you know, I worked in the theatre over the Christmas period doing a two month run, on my first dressing job, jumping straight head first in to the deep end. On top of that was everything with my grandfather passing and anxiety, so there have been a few anxious feelings and “what if’s?” floating around in my head that I’ve been dealing with.
While I’m super happy to get this work and be invited back, I’m among people I know, it pays well and it’s a theatre environment, I need to clear my head. I need to adjust and de-stress, do my yoga, do exactly what I want to do etc.
I have the comfort knowing it’s two weeks rather than eight, the woman who’s going to be head dresser (who worked in a different dept. on the previous show I worked on) is a lovely lady and was my rock through that really crappy time a few months back, and brilliantly, my wonderful sister (who also works in theatre) will be joining me on this run! So that’s another comfort as well 😊
I’ll still be posting occasionally, reading posts, tweeting and commenting when I can, but not like I usually do, which will be at the beginning of July.
Until then, I’ll be zen-ing out for the next week and a bit before work starts…or trying to at least! 😂
All my love,
