So I have this job for the next three weeks, helping out in rehearsal for this amazing show (vocal coach is my name) of which there is a documentary about how it all came together on BBC 1 tonight!!!

click here for details ‘From rehearsal room to triumphant performance, imagine… follows the extraordinary theatrical production of The Two Worlds of Charlie F. Professional front line soldiers, all of whom have sustained injury ranging from amputation to post traumatic stress, join forces with a professional theatre company to help write, rehearse and perform a play based on their experiences of war in the killing fields of Afghanistan. What happened when they swapped the theatre of war for the London stage?’

It is definitely worth a look and the show is worth seeing too. Cardiff, Birmingham, Edinburgh Festival, THeatre Royal Haymarket…..

What with hanging basket city at Kentish Town tube and Poetry Corner at Tufnell Park tube, our little Northern Line enclave is getting to be a joy for the weary traveller. The poem at Tufnell Park continues to remind us of the ‘early summer cold spell’ we are experiencing. Thumbs up to the Underground!

SONG OF THE DAY – Rain -Madonna

classy video…sound pop song… Madonna -not to be underrated.

Yup, it is grey and wet and miserable yet again. The sun seems to have packed its bags and headed off to Scotland? All of last week was grey and here it is, another wet and soggy Monday. Mr P could not go to work today as it was so nasty out there. Diggin’ in the wet is only fun for so long. It has been a great excuse for me to put my head down and do lots of work, but there is only so much work a girl can do before exploding into song! But hey there are many reasons to be cheerful.

Don’t you just love the flags on Oxford Street? I am becoming quite enamoured with the Union Jack. I may get ‘the t-shirt’…..

SONG OF THE DAY -D’Eon Family perform “if I  knew you were coming I’d have baked a cake” –Sweetbest videos seem to happen in folk’s kitchens.
