Well as I said on Monday, I caught Oscar's cold very badly. Which stuffed up filming for me. I went down on Tuesday, feeling a bit ill - by Wednesday I was so ill I had to lie down in between takes - shivering and aching. Thursday was a very long day - was on set by 7am and didn't finish till 6. I was so disappointed. It's such fun usually filming on the Basil Brush - the crew are so lovely, the cast are always joking and laughing - I tried really hard to enjoy it but I felt too ill! I was a trouper though - gave a good performance - the director was very happy with me and everyone looked after me when I felt so lousy. The 1st assistant director spent a long time fanning me with a script! Bless him.
And I also made the stupid mistake of taking Lemsip cold and flu remedy constantly through the day - which I found out yesterday has caffeine in it - which explains why even though I was in the lovely hotel with the big double bed, why I couldn't sleep - only got about 4 hours each night - was awake coughing and blowing my nose...and my throat was so sore I couldn't eat either.
I am just complaining now.....I'll stop cos I feel better today. But the timing was shit. My first acting job in ages and I couldn't enjoy it.
It'll be on TV in October so I'll let you all know.
As I said, got back on Thursday just before Oscar went to sleep and cuddled him a lot. Had a quiet day on Friday and Saturday and today was just lovely. Sunny weather again, so DH, Oscar and I went to Crystal Palace Park. We had great fun - we used to live just near the park so it was nice to revist old haunts. Had lunch in a lovely cafe then walked walked walked. Saw the dinosaurs and Oscar had his very first taste of ice cream - pictures above.....he LOVED it. I'm sure someone will tell me you're not supposed to give babies ice cream but I don't care - it made him very happy!
Hopefully by tomorrow my cold will have gone completely. I've been really bad with Weightwatchers - haven't really been following points since Easter so I'm determined to start again tomorrow. It didn't help that when I went shopping on Friday they were selling easter eggs for 10p....marshmallow filled ones....Big ones...and I bought 3 - for DH I told myself. I ate 1 and a half.....bad bad bad but yum yum yum.
Oh and one other thing - I am probably going to the USA in October which is very exciting - to see my sister and my ya yas. Flying with Oscar....hmmmmmmmmm. He'll be 14 months old then!
