We've just been for a walk around the block in the crisp evening air, which, for the first time this winter, feels a little, well, nippy. I can't wait for it to get cold. Especially in Highgate, which looks so amazing in the snow.

We have worked all day at the kitchen table, give or take a few moments when we had conference calls, and, at one point, an audition in our bedroom! It's always a little embarrassing when you have to traipse a young actress you've never met through your flat and into your bedroom where the piano is! I wondered what on earth was going through her mind as she came in and suddenly felt the need to go all camp so that she knew Nathan and I weren't a pair of dodgy blokes! "Just slip your top off, love..."

We worked on the show's script today. Very hard. Most of our time was spent on lyrics. At 8pm we read the entire thing out loud, searching for typos and formatting problems. We finally finished at gone 11.

Tomorrow we go back to the scores. There's no rest for the wicked. When will Nathan ever finish knitting his lovely pair of brown socks?
