The house in Hammersmith is very comfortable, leafy streets and well maintained gardens. It's a very different feel to Battersea but all good. That's a beauty of London, a short walk and everything feels different, a wealth of experiences and sensations on your doorstep. An Indian curry house is just three doors away and of course I had to sample their wares last night once the crew and cast had left. 5 Stars! Very tasty and very friendly. I slept very well and eagerly awaited my 8:30 lie in.
I awoke early, ready for my day. I researched breakfast and choose a greasy spoon. Walking north I discovered a fountain I hadn't seen yesterday, on further investigation it was revealed as a burst water main. A cooling jet of water 5m high at least but not welcome on a freezing cold April morning. A passerby remarked that this was Hammersmith's "Old Faithful" back again :)
A few moments later and the director called, there was an emergency and we had to pack up and leave the house! Now armed with bread and cakes, I headed back to the house and commenced operation "pack away". An hour later the situation was resolved and I was unpacking everything instead. A late start but fuelled with cake we achieved loads and ended up with just 2 scenes left to film… Watch this space :) And no, I never made it to the greasy spoon :)
A packed 7pm train home, so busy there was no room to move. It's been a while since I have experienced this. It's been a week of memories, reflections and reminiscing. More! Bring it on!
