Cornwall and Fear

grey day at the Eden Project

Last weekend I went to Cornwall with some friends to visit some other friends who have been living there. We arrived late Friday night / Saturday morning had a quick cuppa and a chat then headed to bed for some much needed sleep!

The next day was pasty day at the Eden Project. The Eden Project is awesome and weird and warm inside which is good because as you can see it was a pretty grey weekend. My pasty (below, the traditional variety) was lovely but we had expected a few tasters from the competition that was happening. No such luck. I had a fantastic day, we went ice skating, had ice cream saw a traditional cornish folk band and had some rather nice cider.

can you see my fear

The fear part? Well I'm not comfortable with heights and in the tropical/rain-forest dome you can go to a platform at the top. I made it up with the help of Rich and Matt (who took this photo of me). It's not so much the height that's scary it's the movement. The platform and stairs are suspended so they start to shake as people walk around them. The views are stunning and I'm glad I went up there. That said I'm not sure I will next time!

I'm not sure this post was interesting so here are some robot's dancing:

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!
