|Hope you had a lovely Valentines Day!|
Plans, plans, plans! This has been an exciting couple of weeks re: booking stuff. My favourite band ever ever ever (ever) have announced a tour in April, which I shall be attending every date of. Hurrah! Wildly excited for that. I’ll be going to Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London (twice). I’ve also booked to go see Jay-Z and Kanye West on the ‘Watch The Throne’ tour in June, and the Slam Dunk Festival in May! Phew, expensive. This has obviously made the ‘saving for New York’ strategy of this month fail a bit, so my credit card has unfortunately taken a bit of a battering.
|A week of rock & roll in April!|
I’m trying to make some awesome plans for New York, if you know anywhere cool let me know!

Today I’ve really felt like this year is a new start, by being very productive!The weather has been gorgeous so I cleaned the garden out, did some washing, took loads of stuff to the charity shops (and accidentally bought a lovely Art Deco teaset, oops!) took some stuff to the skip, had a massive clean of the house, watered all my plants…. phew!

I’m going to London for the weekend tomorrow to see some friends, spend some time with my aunt, going to see the ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ exhibition and the show ‘Million Dollar Quartet’, which is a Johnny Cash/Elvis Presley/Carl Perkins/Jerry Lee-Lewis tribute show. Should be a lovely weekend, so I’m sure I’ll have some lovely photos when I get back!
happy new year! this year has been good so far, i’ve been enjoying work, taken a few photos, kind of sticking to my resolutions (which are):
+ get tattooed again
+ travel more / visit more friends around & about
+ save some money
+ start showing / selling my work again
+ have a massive clearout
+ do something positive toward achieving my cafe goal
+ be more positive in general!
the clearout is going well, i got some new furniture so my room has been thrown into a slight madness, but i have a large charity shop bag, i’ve listed a bunch of stuff on eBay and i’m feeling good about it!
i’m going to london next weekend for the ‘million dollar quartet’ show, which is a johnny cash. elvis presley, carl perkins and jerry lee lewis tribute, and also the ‘wildlife photographer of the year’ exhibition. and liverpool later in the month for the alice in wonderland exhibition! then manchester for my sisters birthday party at the end of the month. so i’m enjoying my last free weekend til february by sitting around in my jammies and watching ‘new girl’ 🙂
so christmas is just around the corner, i’ve wrapped (nearly) all my presents, made a couple (one more tote bag to make) and i’ve put up the christmas decorations. i love christmas so i’m really enjoying all the festive spirit that’s about at the moment 🙂
