So I got ready and went off to rehearsal tonight. Got there, and the building was all locked up and there was clearly nobody there. I had thought it was a bit strange that there was a rehearsal on a Bank Holiday, so I called my dad and asked him to check the rehearsal schedule on my computer to be sure I had got the day right (I clearly need an iphone). It was the right day. I asked him to find me a contact number that I could ring to find out what was going on. I rung and they didn't answer. Left a message. I wandered around outside not sure what to do. Tried calling again. Still no answer. Hmmm. I spoke to my mum who had gone to Sainsbury's after dropping me off. Sainsbury's was shut since it was a bank holiday, so she came back. We waited until 8, just in case it was starting late for some unknown reason. In the end we came home. I found another number to ring, and spoke to the Production Secretary, who I always find somewhat officious if I am completely honest, and explained that the schedule said I was called tonight but there was nobody there, to which she told me there had been updated schedules since that and it had been cancelled when it was realised it was a bank holiday. I said I definitely hadn't received a more recent schedule, and she told me that I was next called tomorrow, and then Thursday. So that was a fun 40 mile round trip.
I have had really horrible tummy pain this afternoon/evening. I have felt really bloated, and just really really uncomfortable and hurting. Much more than discomfort actually. I have had it before, but not as badly as today. I did wonder if perhaps I am intolerant to something like wheat, but considering I eat shit loads of wheat, and only get this occasionally I think it is fairly unlikely. I am thinking perhaps it could be an effect of the laxatives, but I don't know if they could be doing this 2 days later. I don't know enough about how they work, but they have given me bad tummy ache on other occasions. I suppose in retrospect it wasn't the cleverest thing taking them when I was recovering from a stomach bug really....
Christmas love to you all
