Well... My two day working week is done =D Yay for public holidays and annual leave for epic amounts of highly emotional larp in the sun.

Too much to really process for my little brain both IC and OOC. It was an awesome event, much shit went down that I hadn't expected. I made real progress with the character in terms of finding new game, new friends and new layers to her that I didn't quite realise were there. This is all a bit vague I suppose, I'm quite tired!

Sadly I didn't get done half the stuff I wanted to, but I shall bump stuff up the priorities list in the hopes of getting round to see certain people next event. I am determined to book early for this one so that I can spread the cost a little. That way as well June and July feel less like they're going to wring me of all the few pennies that I have.

Life is still kicking my friends in the balls >.O' And I'm a days pay down this week because my agency cocked up my annual leave. It should be on next weeks payrun though (if it isn't I will start murdering people) so I shall simply use that money to pretty much pay for Strom, I think.

Plans for the long bank holiday are reasonably few. Tomorrow there will be Royal Wedding watching with cake and hopefully funny hats. I have a couple but wish I had something truly awfully royal worthy in the hat department. I did contemplate popping into the charity shops on the way home but decided I wanted to spend what little fun money I have this week on something more interesting.

Crafting has largely been put to one side in the Froth but I intend on getting some crochet done over the weekend but more pressingly I feel the need to draw/paint so I shall dig out my kit and have a bash.

I owe three people letters which I should also get done this weekend.

So the plan is:

Bake tasty cake for Royal Wedding celebrations
Get at least 3 loads of washing done while the weather is still nice
Write all my letters and get them ready to post first thing Tuesday
Begin one doodle/painting materials pending (I'm not sure where my paints are/if I have any)
Spend an hour crocheting
GET OUT OF THE HOUSE with Waz - we shall go and do something nice. Tempted to take him to see Thor but would also like to get out of Leeds. Not sure I can manage both even if we go dutch on both. I would be so happy to get out to see the sea though.
Stay in bed with Waz ^-^
Go for coffee/something with Neko-chan on Monday

4 Day weekend - GO! =D

Loved up

I am all loved up again at the moment. =) It's nice when things babble along in a quiet and happy kind of way.

Life seems to be happening around me at the moment, rather than TO me, which is a nice break for me. Shit for all my poor friends who are having a really rough time of it, but a welcome break for my fragile little mind.

There was mention today of work possibly considering offering me a fixed term 6 month contract which to be honest would be perfect. I don't love my job but my colleagues are wonderful and it's convenient and that'll give me nearly a year in one place with a hint of job security, at least during the moving house period of my life.

Nothing concrete so I'm not going to get my hopes up. The alternative is not sending another SRR and this assignment ends in May and I have to job hunt seriously and house hunt seriously at the same time. I don't much want to think about that!!

Am contemplating evening courses/ CV enrichment. I'd love to do BSL - but courses are few and far between. Local college will have their part time prospectus up next month so if they offer an evening course I will dive on it. Otherwise I'm thinking TESOL... or hell just something crafty like millenry or sugar craft... I don't know SOMETHING. Where the money for this will come from I do not know but if I find something to get my teeth into I will save the pennies. Even if it doesn't happen until next year - it's something to strive towards eh?

Off to Eliza Doolittle tomorrow. Then lunch with Annie on Saturday. Hopefully a quiet and industrious day crocheting on Sunday.

I have designs on going to the aquarium sometime in the next month or two as well but LARP and other fun life things seem to be taking up a fair amount of weekend over the next 6 weeks so we'll see.

The auctions over at [ profile] help_japan have ended now, or the first round has anyway. And one kind soul bid $40.00 usd for the.. pleasure?.. Of a monthly postcard from me for the next 12 months. Plus birthday and Christmas card =D I'm excited for this project actually. I've already marked a day in my diary to remind me to post the card off each month and am going to stock up on stamps =) Yay! $40.00 towards the relief effort in Japan. 

Pretty tune for this update =) Enjoy! I am really digging his breathy voice.

Last but certainly not least!! To all you kind souls who voted for my friends to win their wedding.... WELL DONE!! WE did it! ^o^ They are now frantically preparing to walk down the aisle on the 29th April. Thank you so much for voting!

Today there were many pancakes! They're one of my favourite foods so today was a perfect excuse to have some friends over and nom many many pancakes. My boy did the cooking and I did the hosting and it was an enjoyable, relaxed kind of evening.

Life seems to be dumping on everyone at the moment - what a nightmare! 2011 hates everyone, I think. Well it can shove off - spring is in the air and things need to start looking up.

I forgot to mention that I went to a knitting circle in town on Saturday - Knit and Knatter. It was most enjoyable. I was nervous I must admit - it's pretty out of character me to just join up to things and go and not chicken out. But everyone there was nice, and I hope that I get to meet the other ladies and maybe a few more sign up. But not too many! A little circle is good for me, I feel.

I'm almost done with making the squares for my blanket, so now I just have to do the last few, block and stitch it all together. Depending on how big this thing is when it's one piece instead of it's little squares will decide how big a border edging I do - but I'd like to do something interesting. Temptation is to go frilly...but the pattern of the squares are just that - they're very ...square. We'll see eh?

I'll post pictures when it's all done with.

I've also just started working a wool/mohair loop in the best shade of teal/blue into a bag. By just started I've really only done... like four rounds so I have a coaster at the moment but that will come together quite quickly I reckon, when it gets going. When I get going.

Again, there will be pictures of yarn crafts soon :o) I have a crochet cthuhlu to put eyes on as wel =D

My muse is all over the place at the moment I must admit...I have 501 THINGS that I absolutely positively MUST do RIGHT NOW frying my brain from the inside but not the time to get to grips with any of it so I am trying to prioritise. I think this will be aleviated with the end of this blanket for my mum - it's my first 'big' project and considering that I started it shortly after Christmas, the fact I've stuck at it this long at all is fairly impressive for me.
