Well, it’s been some time since I made any entries and I decided it was time for a long overdue catch up and to make a commitment to start writing my blog again. So, what have I been up to in my absence? The answer is a lot!
I lost my job back in April which was terrifying as finding another proved a little on the tricky side. In a fit of boredom I somehow got to looking into the possibility of going back to university and it turned out it was an option. So nervously and excitedly I made my application and crossed my fingers. To my delight I was asked to an interview and got offered a place on the spot! So in a few days I shall be enrolling and embarking upon freshers week at Central School of Speech and Drama where I shall be studying for my BA (Hons) Theatre Practice: Costume Construction. I am beyond thrilled, the prospect that in 3 years I could finally be working in theatre after a few stumbling blocks over the last few years is incredibly exciting. So exciting I’m not even bothered that I’m the only one over 21 on my course!
I have also been up to a few other exciting things, doing my best to keep myself occupied whilst being an unemployed bum.
I broke my rock ‘n’ roll weekender cherry by going to Hemsby in May and had an absolute blast, it was amazing to spend the whole weekend surrounded by people all into the same thing, do some dancing, see some bands and do an awful lot of drinking! It will not be my last weekender that’s for sure.
I also went to see Garbage on their come back tour. It was like stepping back to my teens, Shirley Manson is as hot and brilliant as I always remembered her.
I dyed my hair, getting rid of the bleached blonde entirely, it’s now a deep purple/pink colour which gets me a lot of compliments and we can never be too short on those. I popped my tattoo cherry at last, I hope it doesn’t take me another 30 years to get more, I have at least 2 or 3 in the planning. Apparently I was very good for a first time sitter!
I attended another It’s A Wonderful event, this time a Jubilee celebration which ran all day in two events, both were a hit with fun had by all who attended.
Hmm, what else? Oh yes! I went to a Very bloggers event with Diana Vickers, who is lovely but quite fashion referencing illiterate. Lovely singer live too actually.
My most recent escapade has been to see Lady Gaga in concert and all I have to say is wow, she sure knows how to put on a show!
Finally, I have added a new member to my little furry family. I have adopted a 16 week old semi-feral kitten who I have named Betty Raspberry. She has been with us for a week and is doing brilliantly. She’s still not happy being touched but otherwise is bouncing about like any other kitten would and is hopelessly besotted with my boy cat, Dave. I in turn am totally besotted with her. We have our first trip to the vet on Monday for first round of vaccinations and to see when we can get her in for neutering.
Phew! I think that’s about all for now. If you’re interested in an extended piece on any of the above shenanigans, do let me know, otherwise I shall be back properly with a bit of a beauty review of some products I’ve bought recently and going forward it will be business as usual with some university woes thrown in for good measure no doubt. Now excuse me while I do a light bleach to my roots and touch up the pink!
