I am living with my dad in his new house (mmmm, brand new carpet smell!) and have started working in a toy shop in the airport. On the one hand, it's ace, a.) to even have a job and b.) to work in a toy shop! :D On the other, airports demand rather unsociable working hours and my sleeping pattern is ALL over the place. Getting up at 3am destroys me, and I'm coping a bit better with being alternately well rested and utterly sleep deprived, but I don't think I'll get used to it as my shifts are so irregular. So, I am keeping busy and earning money, but not finding as much time for my hobbies as I would like! Hopefully I'll get the balance right soon. :)
Here's what I've been up to the past few weeks, inbetween passing out at every opportune moment and selling toys! ;)
I got an iPhone. It is my baby. ♥ I got my feets eaten by hungry fishes!
Gav visited me in Newcastle, and we went to the beach. :)
I acquired the new 3D Ocarina (!!!!) and - le gasp - I started knitting again!
(Don't worry knitters - I went out the next day and bought the right size needles for that yarn and started again, heheh.)
I learned to knit when I was very little and made a few very terrible scarves and never really anything beyond that - with the only thing I made recently being a knitted haggis for Gavin. Me and knitting never really got on, and I have found out why - I was knitting 'English' instead of 'continental'. Oh it is beautiful. I can use my perfected crochet yarn hold (around pinkie and fed over pointer finger) and it is MUCH easier going. I mean, I'm still painfully slow compared to crocheting and my tension is, um, well, very tense, but I hope to improve! :)
Not that crocheting isn't still my favourite, but who can help being drawn to those beautiful little 'v's of stockinette? ♥
Hope to update a little sooner next time! :)
