It has been an exhausting few weeks, exhausting but in a good way! I had a great week in Scotland! We did lots of walking, sight seeing, boat trips, eating, drinking and generally over indulging! We stayed in a wonderful apartment in the centre of Callander, a beautiful little town not far from where my Grandparents used to live in the Trossachs.
We used to go there as children and I can remember the most tremendous views overlooking the lochs and seeing Ben Venue from their house! There are many wonderful fun filled family holiday memories there, sadly they are no longer with us but I still like to go on a little pilgrimage once a year and long may it continue for generations ahead. A couple of snaps below from our week ...;)
I have been busy going up for castings, one in particular stands out. I auditioned for a Fantasy adventure series via video a couple of months back and I got the call to say I had been short listed for the part and please would I attend a fight audition!!!
Now I do have stage combat qualifications, but I have not really had to use them yet so you can imagine what I was thinking! I was soon practising my moves around the living room equipped with a roll of wrapping paper (that was the sword) and when the audition day finally came I thought I did okay. I could remember the moves, it was just a case of fine tuning certain aspects of it. I had a super time and it would be great to get the part, I quite fancy being a Xena type for a while! Below is me before the audition preparing for the fight scenes! ;)
This week I did a photoshoot for a lovely new brand called Tropic Skincare, it was for a lady called Susan Ma, many of you would probably recognise her from The Apprentice. She was such a lovely lady whose joint business partner is Lord Sugar so I felt very honoured to be picked for the photoshoot for their upcoming catalogues and billboards. I had a great day, a fab bunch of ladies, great food, wonderful location and lots of free products :) :) :) It's alright for some!
Here are a few pics below from the day. :)
On the social side of things I am very lucky as I get to spend every day (apart from castings/work) with my little boy. He is 15 months old and a very cheeky, content little boy. We often go to the park, play centres, lunches with friends, read books and watch Thomas the Tank Engine on loop....;) As a family we all went to Dover Castle on Bank Holiday Monday, the weather was sunny and it was a really good but tiring day.
Anyway I'm going to sign off for now, I have a wardrobe fitting on Monday for a new Commercial so watch this space, thanks for reading and if you fancy following me on twitter you can do so @cmounter. I'm quite boring really but I do have a few gem tweets at times! ;)
Love to all,
P.S. For those of you that have done one...here is my Ice Bucket Challenge!
