I have for the past week or so been holding fort here at the London office and so it has been my misfortune to miss not only the last 6 ladies but also the company of my much loved colleagues, although they have probably enjoyed me being absent. I am of course the realist and working with those two boys means I have to burst a lot of bubbles and drag them out of technology stores before they come out with not only the much needed hard drives but alot of useless paraphenalia like roll-up keyboards etc.
The team will be reunited tomorrow, and I for one am very much looking forward to it. Here begins the second and hardest phase of the project. The editing is going to be nothing short of a nightmare but one that we are ready to tackle with pleasure. It will take days to watch and days to decide what we want to do. So for all those who are holding their breath for a sight of our marvellous documentary, start breathing again and begin holding your breath in about three months time otherwise you might suffocate while you wait!
I would like to say a massive thank-you to everyone who made this first phase of Mothers of Modern Ireland possible. Without you we wouldn't have been able to capture the wonderful material we have done. It has been an eye-opener and an absolute pleasure to travel so widely in such a beautiful country, and to have met so many wonderful women along the way. I promise you ladies we will do you all justice in the editing room! Once again, my thanks and three cheers for the completion of phase one!
