This week has been a bit of an odd one and I found myself feeling pretty glum on my way home tonight. I feel a little better now I am home and cosy for the evening. Tuesdays seem to feel like Mondays for me lately and I wonder if Monday night I am just full of euphoria at making it through the ‘worst’ day.
Anyway, here’s this weeks list
1. I’ve been getting a new bus to work for the last few days and it means I can leave the house slightly later and no longer have to change in town. The only issue is that the times it arrives seem to vary a bit so I need to get it for the whole week to see if it (generally) gets me to work on time. I already get the same bus home in the evenings and it made a huge difference to my day when I discovered it. It means my journey time was cut in half and I’m in favor of anything that gets me home quicker!
2. This was actually supposed to be a photo of the totoro drinking flask that I got as a Christmas gift but has actually turned into more like a picture of a personal corner of my desk. I have 2 calendars up – the one you can barely see is the ‘my sad cat’ calendar. If you aren’t familiar with the twitter account @MYSADCAT, then I suggest you check it out. If you want to know a little more about the melancholy cat behind the pictures, he goes by the name of the Bear and there is a wonderful piece about him by his owner Tom here. Also pictured is my solar powered owl, who swivels his head around all day long, a postcard from Stay Home Club and my other calendar – a sheep one that came in a previous kawaii box. The drinking flask has been great because a) it has a handy strap to carry it with so I don’t have to juggle that, a hot cup of coffee and trying to scan my ID card to get back into my office b) it’s not too big (400ml) so it doesn’t feel like a struggle to finish and I keep keep track of how much I am drinking by tracking on my fitbit and c) IT HAS A TOTORO ON IT!
3. Speaking of cats…I was actually trying to take a picture of this blanket but my cat (Cabaret) wanted to get in the photo. He then proceeded to climb all over me and dribble. Back to the blanket though – this is actually a bit of a personal ‘hurrah’ moment because this week I finally started edging this blanket which I have been working on, on and off for probably close to 10 years. I promised myself that I would finish it this year and I’ve accepted that I can’t find anymore of the pink yarn so cannot add on more hexagons so edging time it is! Once it’s fully completed, I’ll post a proper photo of it.
4. Lastly, this is an awful photo as my bus started moving just as I took it – but it lifted me up a little to realise that it’s almost not dark when I leave work now. I wont go so far as to say that it’s light but I do seem to be catching some pretty looking sunsets which must mean it’s not fully dark.
And now I am going to go and watch more Parks and Rec, because I can’t get enough of it.
Till next time…
