After yesterday's traumatic events (!) Gym Ninja had signed off the blog in a relatively positive mood. 'Things happen for a reason' as they say. So, after a last run-through of photo shoot outfits, GN packed up the stuff and headed off to bed to sleep herself pretty for Wednesday's photoshoot.
Gym Ninja's eyes opened right up wide.....
Well hellooooooooo 'Mr Insomnia'! Nice of you to show up & dance about in Gym Ninja's head. Oh and what's this? You've brought your good friend 'Panicky Pants' too? You ARE spoiling Gym Ninja. Yeh sure, why not let the thought of not having a job nor cash ruin any last chance of sleep before the photo shoot. Hell yeh, why not remind GN that work (or ex-work) are couriering a box of junk from the Blandmobile to her before 9am the next day, which means GN cannot lie in either.
Thus consequently, Gym Ninja had about 5 hours tops of broken sleep, leaving her ready and with ringed eyes looking perfect for a 'Pandas in Peril' style photo shoot theme! Grrrr. To make matters worse, GN was fretting about driving to Birmingham with NO make up on. NONE!
Now GN is a high maintenance gal who was brought up to believe that getting ready to leave the house involves make up as part of the every day grooming regime. It's vital and shows you care about yourself in GN world. Gym Ninja, when having an 'anxiety' dream, often dreams about leaving the house without make up so you can imagine how horrid the thought of a 2 hour face-free journey was to GN? Anxiety dream made real!!!!!
The first 'test' today was when the courier delivered the big box of junk from her old work...was it just GN or did he recoil in horror at her unmade up face? Oh and as you can see, there was a LOT of junk that GN had abandoned in the Blandmobile yesterday....the box was waist high!
So, with her photo outfit bags x 3 packed & a crate of chrome dumbbells too, and a cap pulled down low over GN's 'real' face to hide it , GN set out in the Mini Cooper for the shoot....as you can see, GN doesn't travel light...black, red, white bags of stuff and a crate of weights filled the entire boot!
