Got booked for a new job for over the coming weeks! Hoorah! And it’s an actual making props job too. Maybe this malarkey might work out after all. *does mental arithmetic of likelihood of failure compared with accolades and prop stardom...then decides the maths are too much to think about as super pooped... 1st proper day down and all going well so far. Suffice to say, of course can’t talk about Fight Club so here is a random fuzzy closeup image that I can’t tell you anything about. Or at least I’m assuming so, they haven’t said not to...but it’s not the done thing you know. Anyway, muchos cheers to @l.a.edwards11 for facilating me towards this opp.😁😁

My work really does take me to all the glamorous places. Slightly regretting the hot soup I brought for lunch. It’s a belter of a sunny day! . #lunchinthesunshine☀️☀️ #isthisscotland? #itsabelter #soupinthesun

Back in the workshop this week and have decided to do some major organisation sorting as I’ve not been utilising the space efficiently and can never find anything. Going to put more shelves up and have finally got round to re-doing the top of the bench I made for my wee table saw. All reclaimed wood from Freecycle and foraging so a little wonky but looks ok so far. More surface space and smoooove melamine salvaged from someone’s old kitchen cupboards. Mostly level!😂 Next step, creating a fence to gets them straight angles.🤪

It’s so lovely and reassuring to be appreciated. I’ve just finished a 3 week stint of art dept runner on a tv production. The team were so brilliant and I learned so much more about how all these things work. Mad and hectic but actually really enjoyed it. Great to be part of something. I must have done a good job as they gave me an absolutely delicious bottle of wine (cracked open already of course) and a wee box of fancy chocs. So lovely and unexpected. And even Stu in Standby props gave me a 10/10 - an accolade not given lightly apparently so I must have done all right! It makes such a difference when you work with good people, I know it’s not always the way but it’s good to cherish the times that it is. Here’s to good teams, good times and good wine!
