lazy days and chipped nail varnish

I write this blog wrapped in a big marsmallow coloured fluffy dressing gown, in bed due to the sudden decline in temperature and summer deciding a few weeks of heat was enough for a year. Now the cold is setting in, no longer can you lounge around the house in nought but a t-shirt and jeans, oh nooooo you must now wear three cardigans and a ski hat, turning all the radiators up to full and lighting wood burners a plenty. Until your kitchen reaches the temperature of most tropical countries, then and only then do you relinqish your insanity.

I don't like the cold can you tell?

This is my memory of last winter and as beautiful as the pictures are it was really and I mean REALLY frigging cold, even venturing down the shops had to be prepared for like a trip to the arctic region. any way the sudden change in temp has got me a little antsy O_O

Moving on ... I've been looking at this blog thinking why don't I update enough, to which my brain replied "because we feel we haven't done anything worth posting about", "oh" I said. So in remedy to this I am getting my butt back in the driving seat animation wise. Get this I was so focused about making a website and keeping a blog that I forgot to keep animating!

I mean its all very well and good trying to get your name out there and staring at other peoples achievements, wishing and praying you could be more like them that you forget to focus on your own. So from now on I will focus more on the sweet and tasty product instead of the fancy packaging, because in the end your work should speak for itself.

: )

p.s saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the world and it rocked my tiny white socks off!!!!!!!

Go see it *click me!*

laddered tights and slippery days

Today has been so slippery it has slipped away from me entirely. I got my haircut by the hairdresser I used to go to before I moved to stoke, the trouble is before my parents moved it was only 20 minutes away. Now its an hour at best and to be honest the money I save on the hair cut is being eaten up by the petrol I use to get there and due to my sat nav crashing and a lengthy jam on the M6 I can sincerly  not be frigged anymore. This is a lost day that could have been used to do a number of amazing and creative things, instead I sat in traffic and drove around the busier parts of Birmingham.

Bodie aswell today, thats this Bodie below ------
Decided to attack my new tights, laddering them beyond repair so they now will be used to create tiny tight toys of some sort, like this one I bought from birmingham market a few weeks ago.

10p well spent.

However on a lighter note Cex fest was pretty cool, good people and an open bar which you had to buy with cex top trumps, you could get more cards by playing the managers for them.

this is me, Rafe and Hanson on the way to the field with passion fruit rum and energy drink vodka to bring on that party feeling :P

8 hour sleeps and lengthy books

Good morning star shine the world says hello ... ok I know its not morning but I got in at 2 a.m last night after a night of sobriety for a friends birthday and ferrying friends and boyfriend to and from said party. Not that I'm resentful of being the taxi, I mean I offered and I wasn't going to partake in a drink any way, due to a recent illness and trying to save all my drinking stamina for tonight at Cex fest.
Which is the annual mini drinking festival for the workers of Computer Exchange and their better halves a.k.a moi.

I've been going for the last four years and over those years I have discovered a few key facts to get you through a night in a field with an open bar and questionable portaloo's

1 - Wear old shoes and trousers, it is a field and weather permitting is never the place to wear your new heels

2 - Don't get paralytic through the enticement of an open bar, you will say what you don't want to say to the people you don't want to hear it and arguements are a guarantee

3 - Bring tissues/ water/ a torch and a sense of humour

4 - enjoy yourself

I will endevour to take pictures tonight as well as the last three years I forgot :-S . I've also realised without 8 hours of solid sleep I am a walking wreck and energy drinks can cause more havoc on a dodgy stomach than alcohol can.

Any way I'm psyching myself up for tonight as this is the first year we will be having our own mini bus to get there instead of being cramped together in one long coach ride picking up every store before commencing on the lengthy trip to the venue.

My recent immersive addiction is this series of books
