Pregnant in the 70s

For up to date blog posts, check out my new tumblr, it's much nicer over there! 

I found out about the location of the TV shoot the day before i had to go, so on friday morning i set off just after 5am, and followed my SatNav. I was happily traveling along the pretty, winding roads, apparently i had no idea how far north i was getting as i suddenly saw a sign saying "Welcome to Scotland!" Didn't expect it at all!

I was going to a place called Duns, and i still didn't really know what was happening, but i made it in one piece at 8am being fueled by Rockstar energy, and i found out i would be someone called Pandora for a program called This September. I would be in a photograph that the main character finds from the 70s, and i had to wear a pregnant suit!
While pregnant, i got such strange looks from the crew and cast as i wandered around, (i look quite young!) and questions like "is that real?"

My hair was fabulous. It sat in heated rollers for a long time, and was backcombed into Cheryl Cole heights, although it dropped after that, but still looked awesome thanks to the spray glue.

Once in my floral dress, we headed back to England to take photographs of me and two others. The location was so pretty, a place called Etal, with lovely little thatched cottages. They took lots of 70s style portraits, and some family shots, and got a few strange looks from the tourists, but it was fun!
I've never been to this part of the country, an area that has towns called things like Upsettington, and Rapunzal towers in the middle of fields.

After a lovely lunch, i set off home, but got caught up in all the traffic from people trying to see Kings of Leon at the stadium of light, and apparently the only way there was through the tyne tunnel! But i made it home eventually.
