As some of you know, right now I’m in LA – Marina del Ray to be precise! It’s lovely and sunny here but I have so many things to get done that I can’t go out and play until my work is complete : ) Thankfully it's still early here, whearas back at home in the UK it's approaching bed time... very surreal!
One of the things on my to do list is to blog! Long overdue being an understatement ...So here we are... and today I want to share with you my “yesterday” – my first full day in LA.
Thursday 29th January 2009: I woke at 5.15am, still adjusting to time zone changes a bit. It’s always weird when I come to the US as I’m usually speaking or skyping Katie in her final hour at work because of the 8 hour difference! It’s quite odd for me but I’m sure always a bit of a last minute dash for her as I suddenly launch on her 10 different things that need to be done or checked before she leaves for the day! God bless her that she’s the most wonderful PA a girl could wish for. Thankfully she knows just how much I mean that!
So, back to yesterday. I woke in a bit of a panic. I’d been dreaming that it was 8:40am and I hadn’t booked the taxi I needed to get me to my meeting for 9am – yikes! Thankfully realising it was still early and it was a dream after all alleviated the stress, but nonetheless moved me to book that cab immediately!
And it was.
He has his first two wobbly teeth!
I could have cried with motherly love and pride as he described to me where they were and how one of his friends in Kingfisher class had received a NOTE from the tooth fairy as well as some money.
“Goodness!” I said. “Do you think the tooth fairy will write you a note?”
“I don’t know,” said Luke hoping that she would, of course. Well you can bet that his fairy will and she’ll put lots of kisses on it too ; )
So with my most important priorities of the day taken care of it was time to get showered and dressed ready for the meeting.
At 8am my friendly Russian cabbie arrived, and though he was a few minutes early was happy to wait and then once on board did his best to communicate to me that he’d just picked up a film star and taken him to Malibu beach for filming. He just didn’t know who he was : )
