5th August 2010
I knew I'd been dragging my feet on updating here, but when I saw it had almost been a year I decided it was time. I've not felt much interest in DA for a long time really, nor in art so much aside from a few pieces here and there. The burning desire to create has become buried under other life things.
I made it to Holland, complete with indignant cats and a truckload of life collected debris back in November. I've adjusted well for the most part, it's lovely to finally live with my boyfriend, having a lovely house, a job that doesn't push me over the edge on a daily basis and to be away from the smell and noise of London. I'd be a liar though if I said that I didn't miss London at times, I knew that coming to a little village after living in Soho would be a big jump and it is. No Starshmucks coffee across the road, no China Town, no pizza delivery, no wonderful shops and worst of all.... no pubs! Wandering over to the Coach & Horses on a hot Friday after work for a large glass of chilled Chardonnay is seriously missed. We intend to go back to visit in October, so I shall do my best to catch up! (Note to self: pack trousers with elasticated waist...)
I'm learning dutch via Rosetta Stone ( expensive but fab!)and have found that I am understanding more and more of what people say, I'm still a chicken when it comes to stringing responses together, but I am improving. I work at the shop part-time and have a good grasp of the admin side of things, I've not been let loose on the customers though and I think that's best for all concerned!
So that's all about me... well, not all, but all I can think of now. I really hope my muse comes back and nudges me back into making pretties more and being more active here.
Hope you're all fine and dandy.
Toodle-pip for now.
