The day has finally come!!! Yesterday Chris came home from University because he's FINISHED! YAY!!!!

9 months ago back in September when we parted at Bournemouth train station for me to go home, alone, and embark on months of train rides and missing him, it felt like an eternity until May 2007. The idea that the time would 'go so fast' seemed like such a stupid one and as long as it felt during, it HAS 'gone so fast'! Not that i'm complaining!

And so now, the 'soon i'll be home all the time' time has arrived and i am deliriously happy. So if just a little more time could move along at a speedy pace that'd be grand, so that meeting up in town to lounge in the park and eat portugese chicken time could be now!

Thank you!!

Here, at the house i'm currently living in, dog-sitting, my best friend's Mum has taken over the formal dining room (which is rarely used) for her City and Guilds Embroidery projects. For those who don't know, City and Guilds is a qualification. It makes me dream of having my own studio, there are folders of made-papers, leaflets from shows, practice pieces, fabric with paint on, sewn over, dyed, stitched into, its like a little daydream for me..

Aaaaah.... one day i'll have my own studio. ~drifts off~

In retrospect.

I never thought i'd miss my house, but i do. No matter what the perks of living 10 minutes from work for 2 weeks, i still miss my home.

Currently a little bit in love with...

This lady's music is stunning, if you like Sufjan Stevens you should listen to the new album that is released on Monday. It was recorded in bedrooms, basements and kitchens, and features the vocal and musical talents of Sufjan Stevens and Denison Witmer and has the most wonderful stories about how each song came about. It is so beautifully charming in every way, i LOVE it! I can't wait to buy it on Monday.

My achievement of the day. It's a sunglasses case. It is by no means perfect, some bits are a little wonky and could definitely be better, but im quite pleased as it's my first try, and as always i've learnt a lot in its creation.

it really helped my mood today too, a bit of an emotional one. I can't wait for my future to map out and for a time when I can make choices which mean I am always happy. I can't wait for more time, exciting changes and new experiences, with Chris.
