is Dee going to return to Neighbours?!??! (OK, I am still watching the aussies eps)... they used her voice for a reading of a letter and there's a big storyline about her... how weird... hmmm


I've not really sat down since this all happened so now I can tell you the story of my camera...

On Friday, before John and I left for Durham to see his parents I bought a new camera!

I spent ages on Ebay trying to get a good deal so I didn't spend more than I'd spent originally and therefore also spending more money than I shoudl on something I shouldn't need to be spending it on... if that makes sense..

I moved money... i emailed the guy to say THANKS SO MUCH for me new camera to replace the one I'd been pining for and missing for a week... I was about to leave for Durham, so i thought I'd check my email one last time.

Lucky I did.

Aparantly my camera had been FOUND!!!

Yes, when I went in to ask (and bare in mind my students had done the same for me a few days earlier) there was aparantly no camera.
A week later to the day it turns up!
Aparantly the woman on the desk didnt' know what she was tlking about... it had been there all the time.
I was very annoyed.
And still am a bit.

Above was the last picture that was taken on it.... but then this one to the right turned up on it... my reckoning was that someone considered nicking it, but it was too big and scary so took one picture and decided against it ;)

anyone want to buy a camera?

the last couple of days have been shit.
I've cried loads, and even punched myself for being so stupid as to lose my camera... here's the story:

I got up on Friday ready for a remote I've been worrying about for weeks...
Got a phone call from Direct Line, aparantly I have no legal cover with them, so I have to chase down my OWN excess repayment from the insurance company that owe it me... I dont' have the reciept any more, I was sure I'd sent it to Direct Line - aparantly not. SO I called the break down place, they can't issue me with a new one... so I may never see that money.
THEN I realise I don't have my camera while packing up for the show... I run around the house desperately searching, go down to the car in my pyjamas, it's not there... manage to get my bare foot stuck in some goo near the door, bang my toe badly as I lift my leg up to the sink and just start crying... and don't stop for a good while, til I realise it's only 20 minutes before everyone arrives to go to Reading... so I have a shower and pull myself together.
On the way there my students inform me that the camera has not turned up.

The show, was ok, not great, but ok.

Get home at 2.30am, John in Leciester. Wake up at 9am feeling like I'd not slept, remembered about the camera... got sad again.
Got everything ready to go to Leciester.
Arrived at venue, Chris didn't bring some of the stuff I needed for the show...
Laptop breaks.
Dog pisses on my coat.

the end

today I am very sad.
I lost my camera.
i dont' know how, I think it may have been stolen out of my bag.
but even so, I am very very sad
I know it's just a camera but it's a huge part of ME, as weird as that sounds... I've always had a camera. I always will. Right now I feel lost, angry and upset.
Granted I do have the money to buy a new one, but I was saving up to get a decent camcorder :( mine is on it's last legs.
I am gutted.
I cried most of yesterday morning.
I've only got to use my nice new lens a couple of times too

here are some of the last pictures I took on it... I am going now as we have a show in Leicester... but I can't take pictures of it :(

CSz at the Store mark 3!

About the same amount of people in again - yay.. including two complete tosspots sat in the front row. I wasn't reffing this match, Chris was, and he did a pretty good job in sorting them out... but the start of the second section though when the audience were chanting 'out out out' after they'd lobbed a shoe at Darryl, we probably should have heeded that.

another 12hour day... but some great footage!

Started shooting the silent films with my students - loads of fun - and it looked great!

Got back at 9pm and got really freaked out cos I thought it was about 3pm! Then edited for a couple of ours and realised it was nearly 11pm which really freaked me out! My day was just halved!
Same again tomorrow then I've got to edit that stuff over the weekend.
The shot to the right here was from an outtake that wont be used in the edit, but was just a good laugh- we really needed another gal for the shoot, so Ed volunteered - he passed himself off scarily well as a girl!!
Anyhoo - going to bed to get ready for more of the same tomorrow
