January 6th saw me finally decide on the final packaging for my products and I took many pictures of my new, pretty packaging before sending off my parcels to their new owners!
Jan 7th I spent the whole day organising my deadlines for things I want to make, blogs I want write and other boring admin things.
Jan 8th I watched Sir David Attenborough’s ‘Zoo Quest’ from back when TVs were in black and white and David was handsomely wandering madagascar in a pair of converse. Of course i got a lot of sewing done as well.
Jan 9th I went to Alexandra Palace to try and shoot my own nature documentary of sorts, unfortunately the creatures I wanted were not to be found and so I got Ash to take a few photographs of a new product I was wearing instead. Whilst we were there we saw this man ecstatic to be feeding pigeons. His enjoyment was contagious and I couldn’t resist a few snaps of him.
On the 10th I had a horrible headache (probably from not sleeping enough) and just climbed into bed as soon as I was home from work.
On the 11th a friend who has moved to Denmark was back for the weekend and had a gathering. Unfortunately I had to leave early for work (the story of my life!) but at least my shift wasn’t too bad.
Today, Jan 12th, I have again been mainly organising and watching nature documentarys. But I did make a delicious stew type thing in my slow cooker! It’s a shame it came out extremely watery, but tasted nice enough.
Next week is horrendous shift wise at work, but hopefully I can still keep up with some daily photo’s, even if they’re just from my phone.
Ok so I didn’t finish the apron I said I was going to finish, but I did do most of it by the time I said. I didn’t want to sew too late as my sewing machine is really loud, although I might have solved this by putting it atop a nice wad of fabric now.
But anyways it’s all done now, finished a couple of hours ago! Just got to wait for the Boyfriend to get home so I can give it to him. Now i’m making another ‘cupcake’ apron for a very young child with a matching chefs hat. Should be very cute.
I could have finished it yesterday, however i went to be an extra a filming instead. I was paid £5 towards travel and given as much tea and biscuits as I liked. We were also fed some delicious stew and rice. Seriously the best stew i’ve ever tasted!
There was an extra surprise in store as James Phelps of Harry Potter fame (Fred Weasley) was also being filmed.
Cue me showing my distinct lack of smoothness whilst trying to get a picture. The accidental flash definitely gave me away and he was looking right at me. My surprised noise and quick movement of the phone also did nothing to help matters and at the end I only got a blurry picture of a table.
The thing is he seemed totally nice and like he wouldn’t have minded at all if i’d just asked, but I was having a Socially Awkward Penguin moment and couldn’t pluck up the courage to just say hi.
Even better is that I’ve agreed to go on Saturday as well. I wonder if he’ll be there again.
I’ve also been busy trying to solve a rubix cube as my boyfriend is trying to teach me. For ages I couldn’t even do the first stage but now I’m doing better, although need a lot more practice.
Hopefully I will have solved my first rubix cube in the next couple of days.
Till then I better get practicing and sewing and trying to be smooth.
