Most European calendars start the week on Monday and it is why I love starting off my Mondays with Weekly Wishes. As an update on Weekly Wishes #1, I went on my first audition in nine years yesterday. I know my accent was not perfect, but I still had a lot of fun. In place of being nervous I realised I have a lot of work to do in getting used to cold readings again. There is nothing worse than holding a script in your hand and getting that moment of disconnect when trying to locate the next line. It has fueled the fire of my passion for theatre and I am not searching out for more auditions to attend. I already have one next month circled on my calendar. For Weekly Wishes#2 I have started to make a dent on the weeding out of clothes. Actually I have a great start on my kids’ clothing too! My kids mostly wear school uniforms, dressy casual (jeans and button up dress shirts), and pyjamas. Through outside family they have acquired all these clothes they never wear. I have stacks of brand new clothes that I am going to sell on ebay since the boys will not wear them. So we are getting closer to the finish line with the ‘Spring Cleaning’.
Weekly Wishes # 3

My wedding gown. If you have missed out on the story about my custom made gown I had talked about how the zipper had broken in my ‘Crushed’ Self Portrait post. While I know we could get the zipper fixed I am not going to be able to get a corset in time for our Vow Renewal in a couple of weeks. Since I wore a corset with this dress 10 years ago I have decided to go another route. Today I will be taking out the zipper and attempting to make it a lace back instead. So my weekly wish is that I can accomplish this successfully as we leave on Saturday of next week for Wales. My American expat friend is going to be helping me this week with her sewing machine and we seem pretty confident that we can pull this off. I am going to be wearing flats since we plan to be out in the countryside of Snowdonia and I want to be able to walk without falling down on uneven surfaces. This means I can take up the hem and use that extra fabric to accomplish the goal. Fingers crossed!
