13 for 2013 update

I set myself some goals at the beginning of the year, we're over half way through so I thought I'd give you an update.

Sad face = not yet complete
Happy face = complete 
Weird face = somewhere in between...


1. Get to a UK size 10/12 :(
This isn't go too well I haven't really lost anything this year! That said I've been running more and going to the gym more it's just holidays and stress eating getting in my way. I still have time though!

2. Dress better  :)
I think I do better at this on some days than on others but in general I'm much better at dressing for my shape than I used to be. I should really put more pictures of me on here (I like that on other peoples blogs but can never quite do it myself)

3. Date more  :(
I've not really done this! I've been a bit busy to get past first date with anyone. Ah well.

4. Blog more  :)
I'm still not great at this but I have gotten better, now I just need to get a bit more consistent!

5. Look into selling some things I've made  :I
I'm building up a stock pile of things and hope to actually do this when I've overcome my irrational fear of it all...

6. Get better with my money :)
I've managed to pay off my overdraft, loan etc so I'm only left with 'good debt' (mortgage and student loan) now I'm building up savings and trying to stick to a budget. Grown up.

7. Go on holiday :)
Yes :)

8. Learn French again  :I
I've downloaded an earworms thing and while it's super cheesy it's good for holiday French and as a way back into the language

9. Eat my 5 a day  :I
I've got much better but I still struggle at the weekend and in times of stress

10. Go to outdoor cinema :)
I've been to the rooftop cinema at Hoxton Queen - great fun :)

11. Go to the theatre more :)
Yes! I've gotten much better at this, vouchers help lots with keeping the cost down

12. Take more photos :)
My new camera has given me a bit of a boost in this

13: Drink more water :)
Yes although I'm still drinking too much cola!

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!
