When I was a teenager, even in my early/mid twenties - I was not comfortable with fashion. Only now am I starting to feel comfortable with style. I've always liked clothes I just didn't think that I had the body to wear what I wanted to. I felt that how you dressed meant conforming to a certain group and that people judged you for it. Because I didn't know who I was or who I wanted to be, I ended up dressing badly. Not even in an outragous interesting way but in a middle aged lady way. I wish I had the confidence of these girls. They are still trying to figure it out but they are having fun while they do it.
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!
