Weird one this (most likely less weird than my long term obsession with Sir Ranulph Fiennes) but yeah, slight new crush on John Green. I read Paper Towns not long ago and really enjoyed it. Then saw this quote which I love. Lastly I discovered the Nerdfighters and vlogbrothers... I'm rather late to the party on this I think but if you are too check some of the videos out. Basically it started because John and brother Hank decided to not commutate textually for a year and instead started sending each other videos on youtube which then became really popular. The videos are still going years later and the Green's enthusiasm is infectious!
The whole process was a pain, the person who was going to take my room pulled out so I ended up re-advertising which took a while ... It was nice to have more time with the short commute but for a few weeks there I felt like I was stuck waiting for things to happen, then luckily we found someone nice and then there was the whole moving whirlwind.
I've still got some unpacking to do but I'm pretty much done and all my stuff is here now. It's weird living beck home but much easier than staying over Christmas etc. because all my things are here (I do like my things).
At some point I'll set my Etsy shop back up but probably not until after I've gotten used to my commute!
This weekend I've mainly been working on the big purple blanket; it's a monster and I think it'll take me most of the year but it's going to be beautiful...
Besides that my parents came up Saturday with my brother for us to go see Richard II with David Tennant in! It's a great production ... if you can get tickets. My brother said they had cut bits of it out but it still works and Tennant is great as the vain mislead king and the set is amazing!
Today I went to Local Hero in Kingston with Roisin for a natter and a rather lovely sausage sandwich. Kingston was pretty much sponsored by Cath Kidstone over Christmas - lot's of pretty polka dots!
