Two very slender young women drove up from London yesterday to interview us for the film about Alice's pregnancy. If ever I go on Mastermind I won't be having "My Daughter and Son-in-Law" as my chosen subject. It was a little tricky. Sometimes I was censoring myself, sometimes I was confidently pretending to knowledge I don't really have. As I said right at the beginning, as I was feeling my way, "Who knows about the inner workings of a relationship apart from the two people involved?"- to which I might have added, "And often they're all at sea". Amy and Emily shot about an hour's worth of material- a few seconds of which will end up in the finished product. I tried to talk in soundbites. After they'd run out of questions they had us doing a witchy thing with a candle.
Because of the filming and because Ailz was feeling ragged we missed out on hospital visiting yesterday afternoon. The slender young women didn't arrive until nearly six o'clock so I got to sit in the yard and read a silly thriller.
A film about Alice's pregnancy? Have I missed something? I mean, I gathered she was pregnant, but why the film?
Did I not mention it? Perhaps not. I tend to hold my cards close to my chest when it comes to family. This is an episode about pregnancy in our day and age that Sky will be putting out sometime around the turn of the year. Alice has written articles about her pregnancy for the Huffington Post and I think the film company picked her up from there.
