Christmas holidays

With not long to go until the big day posting has gone a bit out of the window. Most things have to be honest. I'm currently sat at my laptop watching Kirstie's Homemade Christmas on catch up for inspiration even though I'm not going to have any time to make any more things...

But anyway. Here are some photos from when mum and I went to Bath a couple of weeks ago...

Apparently I have been to Bath before but I don't remember because I was at most 1 (it was before my brother was born). The weather was a bit shoddy but Bath is gorgeous so it didn't matter at all.

There was so much Jane Austen stuff going on it was weird... BATH ISN'T EVEN IN MANY OF THE BOOKS... coming from Hampshire (where she lived and died) it was very odd to me. That said Persuasion is set there and it's my fav.

The markets were amazing but by Friday (we went Wednesday to Friday) it was a bit too busy for me. I recommend going in the week - not just because it's cheaper.

Mum and I ate lots and talked lots and I spent lots. It was a good time.


Anyway expect more random posts up until the New Year when things will get back to a routine.

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!
