Happy new 2009... on New Year's Eve I went to bed early, being exhausted from pulling an all-nighter the previous day, in completing materials for my Mini Musical "The Other Woman" .. which had to be submitted on 31 Dec.

It has been a very busy few weeks. The musical "A Christmas Wish" was on before Christmas and though I was not involved in organisation, I was there in support for a week or so; and shared the anxieties and planning before the event.. Then there was our Christmas Party, organised mostly by Audrey and me -- and we were anxious too about how it would turn out, but it was quite successful.

The next thing – deadline of 5 January to submit an Application for NAC Major Grant. Only possible with the help of David Roberts to crunch the numbers, but I have to do the rest of the collaterals, like MTL Vision statement etc. That was what I did for most of New Year’s day ..

On 2nd Jan regular life resumed with a visit to Jobina at the Esplanade. Then dinner with Des at “Bee Cafe” in Beach Road – a place famed for magnificent dessert cakes. Nicest thing that’s happened this year.
