The other day I took a break. I took a break from all I said this blog was about. I took a break from the housework, I took a break from being a wife, I took a break from baby crabb and I took a break from sewing for crabbkins. But usually when I take a break from these things that my world revolves around, I usually find myself slipping on my L K Bennett kitten heels, dusting off my Cambridge Satchel Company satchel and skipping off to a day of supply teaching with a shiny apple in my bag; but not the other day. No no. The other day I even took a break from that!! What on earth did you do I hear you cry; go shopping? Well I suppose I could have done, but no, the other day I went to the set; the set of Emmerdale to be precise. I took a break from all my usual activities. dusted off my ma acting degree and skipped onto the set of Emmerdale. (well, I didnt actually skip, I wanted to try and hide my excitement!)
Now, not to sound like an old hand, I have actually been here before, well not actually to the Emnerdale set, but to an Emmerdale location. Back in the day, before I had a ring on my finger, before I had a mini me, back when I was a slightly more fresh-faced, wide-eyed recent drama school graduate, I ventured onto the set as a receptionist!
But before you get mildly excited, the other day I wasn’t making an appearance that was going to win me an Oscar; unless there is an award for a best ‘blink and we might miss you’ part; however, I did speak and I did have my hair done!
