The Comic Mummy Week in Summary

Thanks so much for the lovely comments of late, particularly those saying that I look just like my Mum. Seriously – I don’t think there’s a compliment that can surpass that.

I’ve been a busy little bee this week, flitting around on a range of the following:

– getting together a plan of attack for 2011, nothing complicated, just, you know…taking over several portions of the world;

– sourcing most excellent grant advice for the upcoming round of Creative Sparks grants from BCC;

– organising the peeps who are signing up for my upcoming improv workshop (I am SO FREAKING EXCITED! It’s almost full and the potential I’ve already seen from the crew onboard thus far is so huge and gorgeous and fuzzy, I really feel like something special is in the wind.);

– performing at Livewired Sunday night to a most rocking crowd indeed, then afterwards fighting the urge to force-feed wet meat pies to my poor dear hubby, who, despite his best intentions, wobbled and wibbled and basically turned the footage he shot of it into a stand-up comedy version of the Blair Witch Project;

– investigating the possibility of renting out a cute little office space somewhere in the West End facility. AGH! A real office! To deck out! To make me finally feel all professhhhionul.

– displaying stunning commitment to the art of neglecting housework.

What about you?

What’s cooking in your kitchen?!

    Hi Jenny,

    This is a great post, thank you for sharing a bit more about your life and your beautiful mum (who I thought was you when I first saw the pic). I listened to a great talk on this subject by the author of Eat, Pray, Love, you may find it interesting: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius.html

    I too struggle with this issue, after years of near total career self-obsession, since turning 30 (what is it about that age?) I have been trying to separate myself from my work and career a bit. The sense of desperation to “make it” to show what a worthy person I am has subsided with this, I realize that there are many factors that go into “making it” and as long as I try my best, and do what I can, whatever happens is OK with me.

    Also, specifically with my career, I have also realized that maybe my previous idea of “making it” (owning my own Production Company) is not what I want after all. This realization has really freed me up to pay more attention to what I really want to get out of a career. It has been quite freeing.
