Lots and lots of uni work done today as well, I managed to finish the 1st draft of my 2nd dissertation chapter.

Quick Update and Pretty Sewing Photos!

Evening all!
I have a spare few minutes this evening, so I thought I'd give you a bit of an update.
Life is, as ever, busy. Lots of dissertation work, lots of lecture reading and (oddly for me) lots of social contact. Bizarre...

Spent reading week at home, which was fun. For those who don't know, reading week is, supposedly, a week for reading. Science students tend to scowl at arts students because it's essentially a week of freeeedom that they don't get. They never believe us when we say we actually do -work- during our week off. Seriously! I do. Lots of work.

Sewing is work, yes?

I is making a dress. A pretty dress, from a vintage 1950s fabric pattern and some gorgeous curtain fabric. Pretty!
There will hopefully be more photos after next weekend, I only have access to a sewing machine when I'm at my parent's house so progress is somewhat sporadic. I'm planning on wearing it at my boyfriend's work-christmas-party-thing.

This week has so far been spent (apart from working) making 21st birthday presents for the twins! Somehow, they're going to be 21 in Thursday. Very strange. Photos of the presents will be appearing early next week...if I post them now the little minxes are likely to find them.

Brother bought a tarantula. Not sure how I feel about this. If I find a shed tarantula exoskeleton on my pillow, I will be less than impressed.

Oh, there will most likely be photos of the night out on Thursday. I'm off out to York to see Erin (female half of the twins), which will involve afternoon tea (we are British, after all), then cocktails in the evening followed by dancing. Excitement, I haven't been dancing since Spain :D I've planned my outfit and everything! Gorgeous purple/blue silk dress plus by black boots. I love them, they've got a 4" heel. Stunning :D

Anyhoo, must go now. Have to be up early to get to town before my lecture starts! Have a lovely evening :)
