What a week! Things have been pretty busy on the Finest Imaginary side, I’ve never made as many badger necklaces before. I also lost my valiant helper, Adam, as he flew out to Chile on Monday for a work conference. Being home alone has its upsides I guess, I’ve been trying to clear my boards of a few projects before he gets back on the 20th, it means I can take a relatively proper Christmas break!
The fog outside yesterday was super wintery, shame it turned the world to ice this morning!
+ Oprah Magazine for the iPad, I bought a subscription to this a while ago and haven’t really read much of it (mainly because it wasn’t retina-fied, but now it is!). I’ve been catching 30 minutes here and there to read some, though, and there’re some interesting articles in there. Not sure I’ll renew my subscription though.
+ Christmas decorations, YEAH!
+ The Christmas edition of the Radio Times. We don’t watch much proper TV, mainly just netflix/box-sets, but I certainly look forward to specials and short series’ over the festive period.
+ My new office chair! Had a bit of a bad back lately which I’m not completely attributing to my ex-dining-chair-made-office-chair, but I think it could be a contributing factor. I’ve upgraded to a swish office chair just today! Granted, it’s not an Aeron (we can but dream) but it should do the trick for now :)
+ The Huddersfield festival of lights last weekend was pretty awesome, Adam and I spent an afternoon being entertained by street artists, fire & a food festival. Unfortunately due to the windy weather the tightrope walk didn’t go ahead on the night we were there, we still had a great time though!
- Being on my own for 10 days is pretty boring, tbh.
- The whole 12/12/12 thing this week (“This is the last time we’ll see this in our lifetimes”…). I *just can’t wait* until the 21st either! Facebook’s going to be a laugh riot.
- The grumpy bastards at the post office, that’s mainly the other customers… I get so many scowls when I go in with my parcels, even though they’ve already got their stamps on and I’m just dropping them off!
