lately

i've unintentionally taken a break from the internet over the last few weeks, it feels like ages since i sat down with my laptop and opened up blogger. i haven't even been keeping up with any other posts- my bloglovin' feed now looks far too daunting to even work through- oops!
i've been so busy with work that the work related dreams are becoming the norm, but i'm not complaining as i love it (the job i mean, not the crazy dreams!) and any other spare time is spent having driving lessons or revising for the theory test.

anyway, here are a few snaps of the things that have been filling up the rest of my time lately...


i've been trying to bring spring to the flat with a constant supply of daffodils- these are a particularly happy bunch :) 


this bag is my very first design using all of our products from work. it was my boss' 30th birthday last week, so we all clubbed together for the materials, and then i set to making this up! there are a few things that i would change if i wanted to make it again, but i'm pretty happy with how it turned out, and my boss loved it too- yay.


i've also been trying to take better care of my nails in the evenings; old time readers might remember that i suffered from a bad stint of calcium deficiency last year, and ever since then my nails have been looking very poorly. i'm starting to miss nail art too, so bought myself some new nail varnishes to keep me motivated in looking after them (also, these colours are just perfect).






i stormed through a few books at the start of the year, but things have definitely slowed down lately. i'm just about to start wuthering heights, i really hope i like it as my sister has been going on about it for years. let's hope i get some time to read it soon!

  1. Wuthering Heights is my favourite book. It can be a bit of a challenge at first (especially to get through all the dialect, but I can translate if you want!) I was unable to read it until I moved down south and was homesick. I grew up not far from where the Brontes lived and it made me feel like I was home. I love it.

  4. I love Wuthering Heights, it's one of the few 'classics' that I actually enjoyed, although it took me a while to actually understand what the heck was going on as it can be quite confusing at first (: xx

  10. So.... I read your bio and flipped through the blog a bit and have decided that we could be soul twins... I wonder which of us has the greater knitting addiction! I am now following you with GFC and would love if you’d visit me at : the daily savant : I have a giveaway on now!
