Post eight: moving house, finding memories, inspiration 

Life

ok so it’s nearly moving day and I’m excited, nervous and tired.

I have been packing up my room and found my old memory box under my bed. There wasn’t much in there except a few birthday cards and my old dancing medals (which I took about an hour sorting out and looking at and being nostalgic over).

I have lived at my old house for my entire life, except for a few years when I was at university but still I’d go back for the holidays and stuff. It’s crazy.

The house we are moving to is my grandparents house and it’s beautiful. It’s big, it’s bright and there is a huge garden so I’m pretty excited. It’s only about 10 minutes walk from my studio and like 30 minutes walk to my boyfriends so it’s a much better location but I still don’t know if I’m going to be able to shake this feeling of nostalgia.

Anyway, I really need to finish off packing the rest of my room! See you! x

Post Seven: When I am not sewing…

Life, Sewing

…I am reading or watching netflix… (which is my new obsession! Have you seen Orange is the new Black? ohBooks em gee absolute genius).

Where I am in Nottingham, there are like a billion charity shops and there is one that I particularly that like to go to. Why is it so good? Because they have the best selection books.

Back in Febuary I had a little mini breakdown as I hadn’t read anything in about 3 months due to quitting my job, being busy with the event I was organising and feeling guilty whenever I did something for myself which didn’t involve emails or fabric. So I went down there, thinking that it is time I took myself out of reality and I spent ¬£10 on books.

Normally I am pretty good at devouring books but I have only managed to get through one so far; Red House by Mark Haddon. I love the way this guy writes, he keeps you on edge and envelopes you in the characters train of thought which sometimes makes you a feel little uneasy. Imagine if you had the ability to read peoples thoughts… Anyway, I only have a few more pages left so I think I am going to go and find a comfy corner and a cup of tea!

Bye for now!
