It has been an auspicious week after the found wallet was returned to it’s rightful owner (see previous post).
Saturday – got an e mail saying that we have been shortlisted for another development scheme run by UK Film Council/Tribeca Film Festival. They only take two prod/dir teams a year. We do the conference call today. Let’s hope we get through but to be shortlisted alone is pretty good news. If we get it – we go to LA in April to pitch the film to more than 20 ‘execs’. Cool.
Monday – can’t pay any any bills – various production companies owe us and are not paying and very overdue – we worry all day
Tuesday – get a call from a company did work for last year – they were calling to apologise that they have sent last 4 payments to wrong sort code – they owe us £2500.00 !!! We are now no longer panic-stricken and can pay bills.
Weds – my lovely friend Anna gives me a brand new (and much needed) mattress to say thank you for me helping her move house and doing DIY. I didn’t expect a present – I did it because she is a single mum and my friend!
Today – come back from dropping the feisty small ginger squidget off at school and notice that there is a wine box on the doorstep. Two incredibly sumptious bottles of wine and a card saying: Dear Rockmother, thank you for being such a good samaritan. It genuinely made my bottom lip tremble and I got a little teary as I really didn’t expect a present or to be called a good samaritan. Sniff sniff. Just off to blow my nose and wonder over the joy of good deeds.
