Tegan & Sara LIVE

If you've read this blog before you'll know I like Tegan and Sara well I went to see them play when they were in London last month (yeah I know that was ages ago now...)

I first got into them through my friend Ben G. and some bloggers plus Greys Anatomy (it's an amazing show OK!). Blogs told me that they chat a lot on stage (you know I love some audience interaction) telling stories from their childhood and such so I really didn't want to miss out. They played at Troxy which is pretty massive. I booked late so I had a seat (I am old so that wasn't a problem)

side note: the seats are pretty weird though, I had one in a booth and had a bit of a crick in my neck by the end, table though WHOOP! 

They played most of the new album and plenty of their older hits - they even did a medley! Something they'd read in NME or some such rag that cool bands should never do. They brought their mum with them on tour as she hadn't been to Europe but had always wanted to she also took over their blog for the trip. So cute. I love them that much more now.

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!
