Thou shalt switch off thy mobile phone
what a tumultuous week it was. Daily bulletins from the Far East where my husband was trying to get home. In the end he was repatriated under armed guard by the British Embassy. Not half as scary as the golfers who filled the other seven coaches. 13 hours to Phuket then flying to Singapore then back to Blighty and the freezing cold weather. The airport might be open but it'll take a while for normality to resume in Bangkok, I imagine.
So, with no writing deadlines to attend to this week, I am concentrating on production for the Justin Hustlin promo. I am camera operator for my son's school play (I have no idea what I'm doing. I'll just wing it). Napalm got in touch and said there was a chance I might be able to interview Perry Benson, star of Mum And Dad, which will be released simultaneously in cinemas, on DVD and on the web on Boxing Day. You can read all about it on director Steven Sheil's blog here.
I'm away to a preview of Slumdog Millionaire tomorrow. It's had such good reviews but I'll be the judge of that...
