So, I promised a few people I would start posting again properly. I've been itching to write about movies and acting and music. I've turned into a bit of a band fangirl lately, with several crushes on several lead singers, and lots of lyrics floating through my head. I've lost track a bit of the film-industry-world but I can always talk about the movies I've been watching. I've always got opinions, oh yes I do!

And, you know what I've decided? I don't care whether or not people are impressed with my writing. Sure, I'd love more readers, but I've tried sounding like an impressive wordsmith before. I probably just sounded like a goose, and it didn't get me any more readers!

To be honest, I've been having a bit of a flail at myself. Remember way back when I started this blog? The plan was to document my foray into an acting career. Auditions, classes, small parts, small films, bigger things.... and, ta-da! A career! Almost three years later, what have I achieved? A few small student things. One casting call for paid work. Zero actual paid work.

I'm not forgetting that I have three beautiful children, for whom I would give up the world, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed at the lack of entries on my acting CV. I guess it is a little more impossible than I thought to get into this industry while mothering little ones.

Anyway, life goes on. It really does! :-)

Careers do not always go according to plan do they? Things often turn out to be a bit harder than we think,... (lots of things! Like resisting chocolate for instance! Yes, I ate timtams today, diet out the window!), but life is full of lessons and surprises and you keep persevering. Well, I enjoy reading your blog always, whatever you happen to write about! :)

PS, I have about 2 or 3 regular readers, more would be nice, but I suppose I would feel more pressured to post, and I don't have the time nor the inclination! So I don't mind too much.

Love you too, Lus. Thank you. I really needed to hear that today!

Hayley, you know what? Hardly ANYTHING ever goes to plan. Meh. But then who ever said they were supposed to anyway? :-)
