My friend Beth loves pandas. I mean everyone loves them, but not as much as Beth. If Panda's loved other panda's as much as Beth loves them (but in a sexy way), then they wouldn't be endangered. Ok maybe not that much but she does call everyone Panda like other people do "sweetie".

Anyway, Beth got me this book for Christmas a couple of years ago so this year I made her the panda from it. It's my first try at amigurumi and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. While I was making it up I decided to sew the eyes and nose rather than use pieces the suggest. I think it's cuter this way but that's a personal thing. I used french knots for the eyes.


So I'm turning 27 in a couple of weeks, meaning I'm (arguably) entering my late 20's. It's also my last day at Wiley, a company I've worked for since I graduated over 5 and a half years ago. The last couple of weeks have been full of the realities of getting an awesome new job:

I've handed in my noticeStarted working on handover documents for my replacement (not great terminology)Putting things into storage at my parentsSorted renting my flat (little bro is moving in)Arranged leaving do'sand lastly... found somewhere to live! I'm moving to Wimbledon. Why Wimbledon? Basically my friend Roisin suggested it because it's close to the city and close to where she lives. But looking into it after it's pretty perfect. It's got stuff going on, but not too much. There don't seem to be that many students, the transport links are great, it's not horrendously expensive and I don't feel any more likely to get stabbed than I do where I live now…
