13 for 2013: An actual date

So last night I went on an actual date with an actual man from the internet and in spite of requests I did not 'live tweet it'. I'm not going to say much about him other than that I liked him more than I thought I would (I had low expectations about internet dating not of him I should add) and I'm hoping we meet up again - but then you never know with dating.


Now I'm going to spew some random thoughts at you about the process.

  • Let your friends know when and where you're meeting - not only for safety reasons but because you'll get funny messages when you next check you're phone. I good friend will not show up at this venue. 
  • I think dating might aid my weight loss because I get nervous before hand and don't feel like eating (weirdo)
  • You're going to be nervous so do something to calm yourself down first - I went for a spot of window shopping and checked out the bags in Topshop
  • Sitting down is good - it makes you feel more relaxed and makes chatting easier especially if there's a height difference
  • Do you talk about the whole internet dating thing? we did briefly - I'm not sure about it
  • Rounds are good - it give you a chance to check those phone messages plus bill splitting etc
  • I have no idea how to tell if someone likes me / if it was good date
  • Hello's and goodbyes are, as I'd been told, the most awkward parts of the date
  • I'm not into games so I text the next day to say thank you you?
Anyway tomorrow I hope to post some actual craft stuff on here I just need to write up a pattern.

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!
