Productive week


This week I have spoken to:

1) A gallery about possibly showing work,
2) Two speciality stores in Dundee about socking pieces.

This is resulting in me being productive once more after a month of bumming around. It really was getting boring but you know it's tough once you get in a rut.

So expect posting to return to normal some time in the next week as I come up with new things...finally. Which in turn should result in a makeover for my online store with new work. Hoorah.

On an entirely unrelated topic, for some reason my flat smells of roast chicken dinner. I'm sure you all agree it's one of the best smells known to man but I'm not aware of one ever being cooked here... maybe it's the neighbours?


I have been invited to take part in another Exhibition, this time in Crieff. Also, the flat no longer smells of chicken.

Deliveries result in tales of my general existance.

I am waiting for a delivery today, one of those "it'll be there between 8am and 6pm" affairs. So I have been up since the crack of dawn just incase. No doubt it won't arrive until about 5.45 at best. This means you can expect regular updates and wittering today on my part as the boredom really begins to set in.

I have to admit though that I have been very productive already, for I did battle with a mighty foe.

When I went to bed last night there was a monstrously huge daddy long legs kicking about in the living room, I went to bed and hoped against hope it would find its way to and out of the window overnight. No luck! So for the first 10 minutes I tried ignoring it but all the while having one eye firmly on it incase it sprang into action and attacked. Just because it has never happened before doesn't mean it can't happen now. After I had wound myself up to being near convinced I could see the beasts blood dripping fangs I decided action must be taken. It was cunning and had chosen a spot up at the ceiling, which is very high up in these old flats so out came the no great effect. Note to self : soft bristle brooms do nothing but upset them. This resulted in much flapping about on my and my visitors part so the broom went away and out came the hoover.

Don't get me wrong, I don't freak out over any old bug. Mostly I am completely indifferent to them. These things on the other hand put the fear of god in me.

So out was the hoover and to be honest I wasn't hoping for the best because it really was struggling to reach and the suction is not amazing. So I did try, and as predicted it only upset the poor thing. I'm guessing by this point it no more appreciated me than I appreciated it. So it was wise and off out the window it finally went. A non exciting finish to this gripping tale but I must say and satisfactory end non the less.

Until later, once I have exhausted the Sunday supplements I expect, enjoy your day and wish me luck.

Update 1 : Is anyone else scared to do anything beyond sitting and breathing just incase you miss the door bell going while you are waiting on something arriving? Plus the longer you wait the less likely you are to move because said delivery is ever more imminent and you down right refuse to have to miss it.

In working order once more

For some reason, unknown to me, the Internet in my new flat suddenly decided to work today. Probably just to make me look bad. One of my good friends came up to see if he could get it working and as soon as he turned the computer on all was working fine, I promise it has never once worked since I moved here and I have witnesses to prove it if I need to. Anyway, hopefully it will decide to stay this way, it really was like losing a limb.

I see in my absence my blog counter has passed the 1000 views mark, so HOORAH! in a rather belated manner.

I don't think I really have much to tell, I've just had a little break from jewellery since I got back from London and taken the time to settle into my new part time job which I'm enjoying a lot. Aside from that I've just been considering my options and what I want to do. However, I was also becoming pretty lethargic and was in danger of not doing anything any time soon but a well timed letter from a gallery has once more spurred me into action... but more on that later.

Hope you've all been well this last month and can anyone believe it's August already??

Speak to you all soon x
