She is alive ... I promise!

I'm sorry I've been so quiet for the past few days; for the first time in months I actually have lots of work to do and I'm not used to it!

The new show seems to be quite good. It's not going to be that insane and most of the team are based in a city further north in England so I won't be going on any shoots but I am going to be getting some invaluable experience in post production and as boring as that is it is an aspect of Production that I am not well versed in.

One little bit of juicy gossip is that I am actually replacing someone else as she apparently was not doing a good enough job. It was terribly awkward when I started last Thursday as she was actually still there. I came up with all of my belongings - including Steve (yes he goes from desk to desk with me) - and had to wait until she had cleared all of hers and moved to another desk before I could settle in. The tension in the air was palpable and my new Production Manager and I kept fighting the giggles when we looked at each other.

Oh my new Production Manager. I just love him! He makes me laugh and can already tell that he will a fellow conspirator as he just doesn't take anything seriously either. His sense of humour is brilliant too!

Miss M: Why do I keep thinking that your surname is McQueen?

NOT McQueen: Well perhaps because I am a total Queen?

Miss M: Packs up laughing That you are, that you are.

I think that him and I are going to get along like a house on fire.

It's so strange to be busy. I've forgotten how to actually work.

How am I going to live up to these expectations?

"...a house on fire...? Running, screaming, panic and mahem?

Oh fab!

You should have just said to her 'well if you'd done your job properly then you wouldn't be moving desks now, would you?!?'

That would've stopped the awkward atmosphere! On the bright side of things, you're busy & learning new & wonderful things...enjoy it!

By the by, I didn't even know it but I've got a connection in TV production...is quite exciting...no idea who/ what etc but still!
