|I was put on the photography table on
Sunday morning but then one of the bosses came and moved me, claiming me
to be a "spare" and not enough work for me. She led me to Robbie McNeill's
tent and I was told to do ticketing for the day for him. Well my heart
just lurched because it meant I would be working with Kate as well. Happy?
I was Julie-Andrews-on-top-of-that-bloody-Austrain-mountain happy.
I spoke to Kate a couple of times and although
she was very lovely and gracious with the fans, I think there was no denying
the rotten British weather we were experiencing had gotten to her and she
was very cold. We had to send crew out to the nearest supermarkets to get
the guests fleece blankets, and I got to give Kate hers.
there weren't fans around to have their pictures and things signed, she
was very quiet and read a big book of poetry a fan had given her; I think
she was really enjoying the book. But I felt so bad for her because I knew
she was cold and I didn't like the idea of any of the guests being cold.
Kate still looked absolutely beautiful
and amazing though; she shined her way through the day as only she can.
Robbie was amazing to work with, I chatted with him most of the day and
helped him plan his Underground route in London to see a performance of
Macbeth at the Globe Theatre he wanted to see that night.
All in all although it was very cold, I
can't express enough how it felt to even see and meet Kate, let alone work
next to her for six hours. I am a huge fan of hers and so to work next
to her for the day was a dream come true, putting it mildly. I just
can't wait to see her again, although I would not blame her in the slightest
if she chose to favour the warmth of the Las Vegas convention to our one
in Milton Keynes - I certainly would!
