Musical Theatre, A Dodgy Knee and Souvlaki
This week has been a busy one! I started my annual Summer School this Monday.
We have 10 days to put on a full show with kids from 5-14yrs.
We’ve got a fab bunch of children who are working so hard and It’s been so lovely to have some of my ex students back to help out and Join in the fun!
Lyrics to many songs from Musicals such as Cabaret, 13, Billy Elliott, Joseph and The Little Mermaid.
Running Orders, Registers and To Do lists.
The second series of New Girl seriously I’m addicted I can’t wait to watch it each night! Nearly into Series 3 now!
I’ve watched Finding Nemo with Little B who now keeps saying ‘mummy he touched the butt’
Also The Rescuers Down Under!
I used to watch the original (we had it on video as kids)
and my mother in law has been reading the book to him and he loves it!
Everyday he asks to watch Cody now!
Children singing-this has been a mixture between beautiful harmonies and fingers in the ears type vocals!
We still have a week before the show, we’ll get there!
My dance clothes are back on for summer school and I must admit
I’ve been getting into my pjs a little earlier to chill watching New Girl.
The weather has been pretty shocking really so we haven’t been able to sit outside eating dinner
so I’ve been cosying up under a blanket-seriously where is the sun!
But I also have my knee strapped up this week!
After being in pain with my knee and shoulder for over 8 weeks (always good to be listening to your body-oops)
I went to see my chiropractor today!
Small fracture in my knee joint and a bakers cyst as well as a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder!
No wonder I was in pain – now supposed to be resting and icing it!
Souvlaki with homemade Tsatziki!
This has always been a favourite of Bs and as he has been working so hard I thought I’d surprise him!
I’ve been doing most of the cooking for the last few weeks as for once I’m actually home before him!
I’ve been feeling a bit negative and fragile the last few weeks wondering why i put myself out there
when every time I think things are starting to go well I get more set backs.
This quote keeps things in perspective for me.
I’ve just realised that this published on Friday with a shocking layout and half of what I had written missing
-no idea whats going on except the fact that my wifi keeps cutting out on my laptop.
Its fine on every other device but not the laptop and as I published something obviously went wrong.
Annoying so apologies for anyone who read my spelling mistakes and thought what is she on this week!

Wow sounds like you’re really busy with the show! Your poor knee and shoulder, bet they’re proper dancers injuries too! That souvlaki looks amazing! You’ve got me craving it now x
Keeping busy so unfortunately not getting as much rest as I should be! Show is coming together though which is fab. It’s pretty damn tasty I must admit x
I’d forgotten all about The Rescuers. Good luck with the show, sounds like A LOT of hard work to pull it all together xx
So had I until I heard my mother in law reading the book! It brought so many good memories. Thank You we may need it! Costumes mainly sorted today but still tons of things to finish off in time! Nothing like pressure x
Oh my goodness the Rescuers- I used to LOVE that film! Right I am off to download it. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! x

It’s fabulous and I love that little B loves it too! Think I need to get the original as well x
Aww, I loved digging out all my old favourites for my older boy and am looking forward to watching them all over again with my youngest.
That Soulvaki looks awesome, I’m seriously drooling here.
It’s always so lovely to go back to your childhood with your own kids!
Thanks it was pretty tasty. Have a lovely weekend x
Aw I loved The Rescuers! Sounds like you have your hands full with all those musicals, that’s exactly the kind of thing my nieces have always been into – they are Stagecoach graduates! The Souvlaki has really made my mouth water – I absolutely love that kind of Greek spiced lamb – delicious! Hope your knee & shoulder aren’t causing you too much pain and you have a lovely weekend Xx #littleloves
It’s amazing when old favourites get bought out again for the kids-I love it! Oh yes definitely got my hands full but I love it! I’m doing ok currently sat resting while little B watches a Nemo (again) x
Sorry to hear about your knee boo. New girl is a great show to curl up to watch. I have been trying to get my workout clothes on more this summer too. Lovely #littleloves
I know it sucks hey but excuse to put it up and ice it ready to watch season 3 of new girl! Doesn’t look like I’ll get many workouts done now though 😢x

I can remember the rescuers down under from when I was little! I must get a copy for the kids. Your poor knew, try and enjoy the rest! x
Really! I’ve never seen this one but the first one I remember well. This one will be ingrained into my brain now! I’ll try and sit down and rest it though I’m not great at that 😁 x
Ouchie! That knee injury sounds painful! I am just as bad as you for listening to my body, so i totally get it! If you ever fancy popping round to cook me dinner, i wont say no?!?! Looks yum! xx
Yes Clare not nice I really should listen to my body more!! Ha thanks glad to see people like the look of the food! Xx
Oh no your poor knee!!! That souvlaki looks gorgeous – massive yum.
Laughing at Nemo and the butt touching, brilliant! Have a wonderful weekend xx
I know I’m not good at resting! Yes it did make me chuckle unfortunately the hubby didn’t quite understand why I was laughing so much when telling him!! X
