Its official - I am sad!

Yesterday I spent the day filming at my kids school for the BBC program 'Being Human'. The school was chosen as a location and children and parents were asked as 'Extras' Of course being me I couldnt resist my chance plus I rather hoped that the Vampire guy May be there!

Anyhows we say around in the playground or about an hour whilst they got started! Itwas a bit cold but thought I dont care this is gonna be fun! Myself and 6 other parents turned up (I was surprised it wasnt more!) Luckily I knew all but 2 of them well so we had a right laugh!
We were called up to the crew and actors which was weird, and were told what we needed to do and where to stand. and it went on allllllll day!
We were given an hour for lunch so I went round to my mate Trish's house (who too had been there all morning) we warmed up with a coffee and watch the rain start and thought ohhh no! but when we started to go back it eased off to a light drizzle.

When we got back everyone was kinda hanging around so I thought I would take my chance to get a pic with one of the actors! now I started asking then Trish tanslated my garbled speak to him! he said yes and asked my name, I said Cleo and he introduced himself as Russell I went to shake his hand and my umbrella almost flew towards him! That was it I was all embarassed and bumbling away tring to get my camera out of my bag - and it didnt want to come out! by this point my friends are laughing at me ! but I got my photo! He was so nice he even picked up my umbrella for me ! I am sooo embarassed!!!!! one of the parents said I looked really star struck which wasnt it -I just got embarassed! ohhh well I did my bit now I have got to hope I make it into the scene!! hehe

I watched the first series and loved it and it was great to see how things are filmed. Everyone was so friendly bringing out umbrellas to us when the rain started and just being so nice! I cant wait til next feb to see it now - whether i am in the shot or not!! I had a really good day! even if I didnt get to meet the vampire charector! (actually that was probably a good thing - I would probably fallen in the mud or something!!)

A change - Oh yeah you might notice that in that photo that my hair is dark! - A couple of weeks back I decided to dye it purple - a nice dark purple and well it went bright purple with lilac streaks - hmmm nice I hear you say .... no no no! I dyed it dark fairly quickly and LOOOOVEE it!. My hair has never been this dark but I really do like it! Its great as you wont see the roots so soon!

Anyway I really need to blog more often - but that the problem with 2 blogs it seems too much and so I dont at all!! lol
