Sorry blog, I do neglect you don't I. I think there's little point pretending I can keep this up regularly.
I have had two days off work which has been great but as always they go so quick. Fortunately I have next week off and I will be heading south to visit my parents and much missed cantankerous old hound dog. Today I finally got around to watching An Education. I enjoyed it, but it choked me up a little. In fact, most films make me weep these days, what the hell is wrong with me?! I think it just reminded me of similar situations in the past - not so much the prospect of heading off to Oxford - that was never an option! But being 16 and being completely fooled by someone. Made me angry at myself all over again. I don't think I'd fancy being that age again.
Speaking of age I am still finding being 27 really strange. It's the first age where I've felt a little panic. Panic and questioning whether or not I'm where I should be in life and how am I judging that anyway? A lot of it boils down to money but if I hadn't made these financial errors a lot of things wouldn't have happened which have been good for me, so I suppose it's a catch 22.
Anyway, I think I've probably lost you now.
On Saturday I'm off to London to meet up with one of my best friends, Ryan. I'm really looking forward to it actually. I plan to go to Selfridges to see if any of my jewellery is still in Supermarket Sarah's shop on the ground floor, and I plan to go to Liberty to sus' it out - I want to pitch my work to them in April but I fear I may chicken out so I am going to have a look and see how I feel, and then no doubt worry about it lots. I also wouldn't mind popping into Charbonnel et Walker as we sell their chocolates at work and it'd be really nice to see their proper big pretty boutique in London. We also plan on having a cocktail at TGI Friday's as they have ones that are like desserts - yum! I'm not sure where else to go? I don't have much money to spend but it'll be nice to hang out with a friend and have a wander about. Likewise I don't have too many plans for my few days back home, but I will go to Canterbury to see a friend and might just go on a few walks in the countryside - I need a change of scenery!
Right, I need to be productive now and list a few new items. Head over to my Etsy store if you haven't done so recently, I've been a busy bee.
