Heh, today's post is brought to you from the number 99. Which is just the number of posts I am at. The next post will be number 100. Yikes! Anyone still with me or joined me along this blogging adventure? I was going to look at the purpose of this blog, and whether it has met it, or where I have come since starting it. However truthfully, I am not much further forward in life, just a few months of employment at work and huge leaps forward in my creative life outside of work. Work is drying up now and I will go back to part time employment, but who knows where this will lead me? I can spend some more time learning the ins and outs of sewing and making, and spend some quality time with my CV, getting it ready and finding more gainful employment than I currently possess. I guess it really has been many steps sideways through life. But that is OK, I have learnt and I have been happy and that I feel, is what counts.
So, that said, this weekend I am home for my ma's birthday. Happy Birthday for Monday Mum! (She reads this blog, one of the few :p) I travelled home late after work, see above, reading The Story of Mr. Y. So far so good and oddly enough set in Canterbury which I had not realised until getting into some location descriptions and the poorly renamed places on campus that are so recongnisable from my undergraduate course! The writer was/is a lecturer there!
Last night I was shattered but still stayed up till 1.30am after getting trapped into another book called Room. I read it all in one sitting, resulting in very little sleep, but so worth it. I will be haunted for a long time by Jack.
Today I made Mum her birthday apron but will post photos of that tomorrow once the light comes back. It is a little crooked but still, looks funky. I also brought a 35mm camera that doesn't work for a £1. Obviously I didn't know it didn't work, and some expired film for 20p, one of which is now ruined owing to said broken camera and me being too happy about rewinding. Alas. I also got an embroidery hoop which I have certain plans for, although I need a few more to do what I really want to do! :s Here is some thread I brought too, on an old wooden wheel.
I'll stop rambling now. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
