Life is spinning out of control with days whizzing by so apologies for the lack of post yesterday. Although the first rule of blogging is never apologise for not blogging because it’s annoying and who cares? Well I DO. So, I’m sorry. I know people get annoyed when my posts are later in the day rather than the morning, so I know some of you would have been annoyed. See? It’s JUST GOOD MANNERS. Maybe there should be something about an opening paragraph apologising..?
So. It’s been a busy 36 hours. I drove up to Sydney late Tuesday afternoon to stay at Mrs Woog’s house because I had to be at Channel 9 early the next morning and I was not keen on leaving home at 4am. Also! I got to meet her Mum who is so groovy and fabulous and she cooked us the most delicious pork dinner with champagne. It made me miss my Mum so much who has been overseas for the past 4 weeks. Miss you Mum! You can read a little about that here. I kicked Jack out of his bed for the night, but made up for it in the morning with plenty of snuggles on the couch before heading out the door to Channel 9 which is about 5 minutes drive away.
I got lost.
I know! I used to be a good driver. But I kind of got lost and keep pulling over looking at my phone for directions then looking at the horizon for the big tower like it was the Emerald City that I just had to get to. 40 MINUTES LATER I arrived. Ridiculous. I was whisked into hair and make up and then sent up to the Green Room to wait nervously.
I watched the chopper land. And refuel. Fact: Helicopters are cool at ANY age.
And then I watched curiously as the young, pretty blind girl from The Voice was in there with me. Teeny, tiny little thing, but strangely enough? Not blind. I thought she was blind? She was texting? And seemed OK? I chatted with her (didn’t bring up my confusion re: her blindness or Delta’s long hair or if she had watched Ice Castles and did she love it too?) and watched her do warming up exercises. Lots of raspberry blowing incidentally.
