I am sat at a makeup desk in Twickehnam, 6 weeks into 8 weeks filming a kids show dressed as a pointy eared elf. We are moving near here at the weekend because our flat in crouch end has dry rot and its a chance to move closer to work. It is 30 degrees outside and inside there has been a power cut.  In South Africa England are playing Slovenia and the crew are watching on Iphones or listening on radios. The set looks creepy and unusual lit by just the emergency lights and the whole experience makes it feel like we are all back at school in some way. Who knows when it will all go back to normal but for now, exhasted as i am, it is a particularly pleasing feeling.
