Aha! Our first ever performances in London! Let us run you through the longest day of our freelancing-zero-hour-contract-lives.
5AM we. awake.
5.30AM Mrs.Harriet picks up Jess and Rosa and they drive to London. The roads are busy. BUSY. Actually busy. Who are these people, where are they going and why are they not in bed.
7.00AM gridlock in Croydon. Honestly who invented commuting.
7.15AM on second thoughts -who invented 7am rehearsals? Oh, yeah. We did.
8.30AM breakfast time!! At the wonderful Brown and Green cafe! (Our brilliant brilliant London venue) Eggs and halloumi and bacon and avocado and tea tea tea.
10AM we’ve gone to see a woman about a baby. To be precise – we’re visiting Harriet’s new baby niece! And she’s just 13 days old and all of our hearts are melting and she has a beautiful chubby little face which is all wiggly and wobbly.
11.30AM Oh hey Nat!! Our fancy pants new tour manager is joining us in rehearsals @ OH today. Which by the way is a beautiful brand spanking new studio for artists in Bermondsey. (In case you read that wrong it’s not a new spanking studio – visit the website here and don’t be thinking those filthy thoughts) And no, she’s not dancing – she’s in the corner on the emails. Just you wait Nat, just you wait… #cameo-a-coming
3.30PM Back to Crystal Palace to eat and prepare for the shows!
7.00PM SHOW ONE – hurrah! Such a lovely audience who made all the right noises at the end. We thank you for making us feel so appreciated and so loved.
8.00PM what do you mean there’s another show?
8.30PM SHOW TWO – a sell out gorgeous audience, we feel so lucky! (To the people who brought pizza – you know how to watch a show set in a cafe!)
10.00PM Props and costumes packed up, cafe looks as if we were never here… and we are getting back on the road!!
10.30PM but not without chips.
10.45PM “is he growing potatoes or what?”
11.00PM on the road again!
11.30PM home so soon! Must keep singing louder! Must stay awake!
11.45PM WHY ARE WE IN PYECOOMBE
11.48PM WHY HAS EVERYONE ELSE FOLLOWED US OFF THE A23 AND INTO PYECOOMBE
