When good decisions feel bad

When I moved I thought every little about other people. I'd been single for a while, I was moving only an hour ish away from my family and friends and my flat was the main thing I was worried about. With my flat let there didn't seem to be much more to worry about.

As you'll know if you know me in real life, the last month and a half have been some of the hardest for my family. Two people very important to me left us and while I've been able to come back to say goodbye, it doesn't make it any easier to hear people you care about suffer and not be directly able to help or give a hug. It's the first time I've been unsure about my choice to move.

It's also been strange relaying stories about loved ones to people I've only known a few months. Yes my close old friends have all been amazing - understanding my tendancy to withdraw for a while and being there when I'm ready to talk - I've just also been suprised by how quickly you can create ties with people. It's hard to make new friends when you get older, you don't have the same shared history for starters, but it's still worth doing. 

Right now I'm looking forward to a long bank holiday at my parents catching up with friends and family.

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!
