So a while back now (all the way back in last year), we went to see Yuck at the Wedgewoodrooms.

First up were Gross Magic they were actually pretty good although the bad hair and grungy hipster/homeless person clothes kinda annoyed me a bit. Oh and the singer seems to be trying to sound as pathetic as he can. That said I couple of their songs were really good, I just think it might have been improved with a female singer maybe (I'm most likely going to be attached by some angry teenagers if they ever read this).

Pretty sure these guys were lucky not to pass out drunk on stage but they were still good. Less banter than a lot of the other bands I'd seen this year which was disappointing but hey, they had batter hair than Gross Magic!  The singer kept his coat on for a large amount of the set, maybe to try and sweat out some of the alcohol? The band has some great songs though and played well, Georgia being a highlight for me (but then it is for me on the album too) as well as the hair. Just in general this band has some awesome haircuts.

Cross stitch necklace

Today was my first day back at work in 2014 (I took the rest off - it was lovely). I thought I'd make a bit of an effort and put on boots, tights and a skirt as well as the above.

The necklace was a christmas present from Ve, she made it! Isn't it amazing! You can get the necklace hoops online or from some craft shops she said.

Why a bike you ask? Well partly because of the time I fell into a parked car attempting to cycle and also because she maintains all I need to be 100% hipster is a fixed wheel bike! The cheek of it...

The first Monday of the year is apparently the most depressing of the year which is a sad way to start isn't it! My day was pretty good although I managed to rip my skirt (nooooo!).

P.S. I died my hair last week, it's a bit darker than usual - thoughts?

Moving playlist

Moving is all done!

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!

Richard II, blankets & Kingston

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!
