Good times

I have been rather absent from my blog lately. Sorry! Here are some highlights from the last two weeks:
Rugby matchMeeting new peopleWinning the pub quizArt trip to LondonCupcakes and craft nightCinema: Sherlock HolmesSteak for lunchShopping trip - bought Passion Pit: Manners and Arcade Fire: Neon Bible (I never by cd's over £6 so always have to wait...) both are awesomeCoffee shop chatsWatching awesome local bandsTalking to a cute bearded manFake fighting in a barBeing taught a little bass guitarKnitting It's been busy!


I've loved Travis Bones work for a while now and today while looking at I saw this! It one of my favourite animals and one of my favourite bands. What better reason to buy such a great piece of work :)

I think it's beautiful and will make my flat even prettier :)


Lots of dream and not much quality sleep lately. The constant grey sky isn't helping me feel more awake in the day either! I did get some happy mail yesterday though.. pretty navy blue wool.

I'm off to work now, hopefully I'll stay awake...

Cupcakes with friends:
Knitting: Generally accompanied by tv/film watching, listening to music or chatting to the girls! (currently knitting by Kim Hargreaves)
Picnics: I guess I've finally had enough of all the ice that's everywhere! I do love picnics anyway - my family have an annual one in the woods near my parents house: and then there's the common near where I live - perfect for lazy summer days...

Sewing & Snowing

The snow continued though the night and most of today which meant working from home. It's not too bad where I live but my Dad only got home from work at 6 this morning!
Anywhoo I have also been able to finish my sewing:


It's snowing and I am very excited and happy to be able to see it from my window but be in the warmth of my flat.
Here are my plans for this wintry evening: Wrap up in my duvet on my rocking chair (pressie from mum and dad), eating cookies, sewing and reading film magazines.
