And so it begins..

I am starting about 18 weeks of chemotherapy today. In anticipation I have a new hair cut here is a photograph. It is a relief to start the treatment and I know I am going to be fine.

I suddenly realise how lucky I am to have spent so much time with so many serious and dedicated clowns – Tweedy, Cal McCrystal, Angela De Castro and many more – they have taught me over the years to tune into the possibilities for fun in any situation.

I am so lucky to have amazing support at home especially from Daniella and Toti.

The team is busy planning next year's show – it's exciting that the show goes on and it's so great to think on and into the future – the spring, arrivals, rehearsals.
