No rest for the wicked over bank holiday weekend, so far I've racked up 30 hours with another 10 at least tomorrow. I'm being paid overtime for working at the Home Office over the weekend though, so my pay cheque will be pretty healthy in a couple of weeks. I've been celebrating in advance/rewarding myself a little though - last night called for a handful of drinks with the wonderful Amy Newton in our favourite establishment for a jive; The Great Gastsby. My poor throat has taken a complete bashing from my over-enthusiastic singing which is proving really fun whilst I interview all day at work.
I've also treated myself to a new velvet choker and a Nick Cave bootleg cassette from Ebay. My CD & Cassette player is all set up now so I feel I will quickly become obsessed with collecting music again. The choker is super cute, I'll snap a picture of it when it arrives in the post. I don't think the novelty of receiving gifts in the post will ever wear off, even if I have bought them for myself.
The transformation of the flat slowly continues, adding personal touches here and there. I have these super cute alcove corners in my front room which are great for interior decor accessories - the photo frame and little bird are only a taste of how adorable it all looks/will look. With the prospect of having more visitors soon, I'm sure that I'll hurry up and get it looking perfect. My friend Ruth from Nottingham came up on Thursday and I had the most wonderful time, I really do miss having all of my besties around me. I hope that I'll get more chance to travel around and visit people soon, I don't do a good job of keeping in touch but I do love you all dearly.
Hello. It's been an awful while since I last blogged. I'm aware I may have lost all readership by now but I've made the decision to continue blogging for my sanity as a writer, even if it's just for my close friends who I don't spend enough time catching up with to read. I'm making no false promises about regular posts or what is to come for kindlytreasures, I'll just decide as I go along.
Since I last posted my life has changed significantly. I've stepped into the real grown up world of juggling full time work, relationships, house keeping and trying to hold onto my passions. After a complete disaster of planning to move in with my best friend, I now rent my own flat in Sheffield. I'm slowly piecing things together to make it feel like home and now that I've finally installed the internet and re-joined the twenty-first century I can share my progress with anybody who cares to read. My new job requires a 4.30 AM alarm call which is a bit of a shock to the system but I enjoy it and I'm very grateful to all my wonderful new work friends who've welcomed me into their little family. Tired is certainly a feeling that I'm growing accustomed to. Everything seems a little unfamiliar and new right now, but it all seems to be falling into place and so far I think I've made the best decisions that I could have. There are definitely still huge aspects of my life that need sorting out, I have no concept of what the future holds right now, but I think that will come in time, once I've become completely comfortable with the right now.
I'll leave it there for now, with a short update post and a few photographs of my tired face. And don't worry, I haven't turned to heroin however much it may look like it.
