Ah, sorry guys, I am having a superbusy time at the moment so updating is once again minimal :(
Anyway, the quick update is this:
The surprise party my siblings and I organised for my mum's birthday went like clockwork! Planning started in August and the party actually happened the 10th of October. It was fab! Mum didn't suspect a thing and was very much surprised. I catered the whole thing (with help from my sister's boyfriend who made the most amazing humus) and worried about the amount of food constantly but it turned out that we had more than enough.
Recently I recorded a song for an animated movie (of which I do not yet know the name but I do know they want to get it nominated for an Academy Award...what... WHAT?!). Still haven't had time to properly sit down and listen to the final mix though O_o
On Tuesday my sister and parents went to visit Florian's mother to talk and have lunch and walk to Florian's grave. We talked endlessly about him and about his final days. It was pretty heartbreaking but also very therapeutic to speak about him. And there is a lot more I should write down about this but I won't. Not right now. Just this: still miss him, every day...
Theatrical news: last Saturday I did the second audition for Aida. It went very well but I have since then heard that, out of the five contestants, I wasn't the one they chose to play Aida. I am more pissed off by that than I thought I would be... Well, I gave it my best shot! Now I have to decide whether or not I want to take a place in the ensemble. At the moment, I am unsure about it. Yes, it is a fantastic show by my favourite composer but there is also a very limited amount of ensemble work so it might turn out to be a big waiting game *shrugs* I have a week to think about it. Any advice is welcome!! :)
And now, time to make dinner!
