Readers, today is an utterly gloriously fabulous day. It's so sunny outside that even my cat Benji (who normally prefers to sit in the living room scowling through the window at the garden in case it tries to drag him out) is splayed on the decking as if he's just too delighted to do anything but sunbathe. Of course, I am clearly not outside enjoying the unexpected April heat. Why you ask? Because I am getting ready for work. That's why. Plus, I had to call the student loans company to tell them that I'm working. Apparently I have to go and get something called a PAYE number. What the hell is that? To be entirely honest, I'm not convinced I earn enough to start paying the loan off, I don't even earn enough to pay £12 for a haircut after all! Another thing I've been doing today is practising my monologue, documentary extract and sonnet for Friday's recording. I can't remember if I mentioned it or not but on Friday I shall be recording my voice reel for Spotlight, which will hopefully get me lots of lovely radio and audio book work However, after ages of not doing any serious voice work, I am feeling decidedly rusty. Hopefully today's shift at work will awaken my tongue a bit. I'll just over annunciate everything, the people on the other end of the phone will think it's Hyacinth Bouquet trying to get them to set up a monthly direct debit to charity!
Right, I realise this has been an unnaturally short blog but I have to dash and get ready. Glasses? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Copy of Brighton Rock? Check. Notes on phone etiquette? Check. Tupperware container of pineapple. Double check. I'm ready to rumble!
Bye dear Readers, hope you're taking advantage of the sun before it goes into hiding again!
