We had originally planned to begin work on the scenes that take place at the top of the stairs tonight, but Becky had to make a last minute cancellation. As her character Helen plays an important part in the top of the stairs scenes we decided to put them off for a couple of weeks and instead start on the only other remaining interior location - the lounge.
To do this, however, was not quite as straightforward as moving into another room and beginning filming. The lounge did not currently look much like a student lounge - it was the location previously used as the "bare room" for the dream sequences! Solution: we all became furniture movers for the evening and swapped the contents of three rooms - in the process returning Mike and Sue's bedroom to a state vaguely similar to how it was before we started on the bedroom scenes.
Once the lounge was set up, lacking only a collection of Jimmy's empty beer cans and bottles which would be obtained at the weekend, we moved into the kitchen to shoot some of the opening credits using fridge magnets.
