And with June, came my departure from Orlando back to London. I Landed in the Early hours of a Wednesday in June, to temperatures in the mid 20’s (for you Americans, somewhere in the 70’s!) Which I can tell you is unlike the grey skies that I am used to.
After 9 months apart, I was greeted by my mum awaiting for me with tears of happiness at the arrivals gate.
I cannot express just how much my mother means to me. Obviously every child will unconditionally love their parents, but I can confidently say my mother is my inspiration, motivation and my rock! Getting to give her the biggest squeeze was such a overwhelming moment. Technology has been fantastic, but unfortunately FaceTime doesn’t have a ‘Give Hug’ feature… yet.
After worrying the past couple of weeks about where I would be residing during my time back in the UK, I got the chance to spend two weeks with two of my favorites! David and Evan, I cannot thank you enough for welcoming me into your beautiful home, and making me feel so comfortable and relaxed! Transitioning back to GMT and London Life was a bit of a shock, and having you both there was wonderful.
Oh … and I got to see a show I had been dying to see too, and made all of my American friends very jealous!
Yes, it lived up to every ounce of hype, and really is one of the best musicals I have seen on the West End in years! The Broadway energy and magic, that sadly the West End usually lacks was there with full pizazz! And Amber Riley … well, I can see why she was awarded the Olivier! What a great way to spend my first 24 hours back in the country.
By the end of the Month, I was right back into rehearsals with my girl group, The Buttercups (Instagram Facebook Twitter) and performing in some of our favourite places across town. I had missed getting dolled up in our gorgeous matching outfits, and seeing all the pin curls back.
June will filled with catch ups with my nearest and dearest at home. And wow It felt so good to have my crazies back on the same time zone, and only a TFL fail away!
