Ramblings of a sleep deprived *22 year old….
Another 5am start.No,I have not turned into a pristine athlete,or political leader which can survive on just 3 hours sleep.I have given the gift of life to the twin monsters.
Yes,my absence was down to the arrival of two bullyish boys!
My days now revolve around CBeebies and shows such as Rasta Mouse (comedy gold)-which might I add,I am beginning to love! I always thought these channels were jam packed full of bright young presenters, with snowy white teeth and enthusiasm spilling out of every orifice!
But,alas no-there are people my age *(22)on there! It has given me the buzz to once again start actively looking for presenting work..perhaps on kids TV!
I still do my lovely fashion segment on QVC-but something additional,where I can act slightly crazed,might just be the ticket?
Anyhow,back to my extended absence.I was also away for three months in Oz We had a summer of Cyclones,floods,Vegemite,Oprah and of course the obligatory sun,sea and surf-sans the suntan (Aussies now frown upon such futile endeavours).
It has become such a nanny state that you get breathalysed by the police every 2nd day,can’t go above 60 clicks on your speedo, and have to have a mechanic install your car seats. Also,let me just say that living with your parents at my age *(22)is like regressing to childhood.
Nights spent ‘setting the table’,drying dishes and asking permission to use the car(only to drive slowly to the beach).Oh and beach visits…don’t get me started on beach visits! Gone are the days of wild abandonment,where all you needed was a towel and a slap of sunscreen-oh noooo,when you go to the sea side with your parents,and newborn twin monsters- you are required to take everything barr the kitchen sink.Tents (to stay out of the sun…wtf??) an esky full of drinks (not a bad addition i must say),blankets,not one but 4 fold out seats,an umbrella (see tent explanation) a canoe type thingy and a boogie board.
Then,you aren’t allowed to sit on the sand-are you mad man?Nooooo,you must sit up on the grassy knoll-so as not to get sand everywhere?I think that re classifies the event as a ‘picnic’ rather than a beach jaunt!
Wowsers-I was quite impassioned about that eh?
Anyhooo..back to Blighty and things have changed greatly here too! I walked down to our local shopping mall this week, and discovered people with their feet in fish tanks,having their feet nibbled by Piranha type fish.MMMM..has the world gone mental?It transpires a few short days later, that this pedicure is spreading vile diseases to it’s customers!Nice!
Another thing I have discovered since my return is that FRIENDS is still being aired on E4 -every hour.Where do they find all of these episodes?And do you think it’s possible there is someone out there who turns their telly on,and thinks ‘what’s this new show?
Anyhow,my final rant belongs to m y beloved twin sons.Not only ahve I had to take time off to hatch them and feed,bathe and generally hang with them!They are now taking my model gigs.Gone are the days where I was requested for a casting.Oh no,now I must bring the show stoppers.getting ready when you are a *22 year old has been is one matter-but adding two wriggly 7 month olds to the equation,simply isn’t cricket!
Ok,rant officially over.Keep an eye out for my new reel and subsequent rant.
*depends who you ask/if lights are on
