Glorious day today, AND I got a book all about hippos for £1!
Life is good, sister bear comes tomorrow for lots of touristy fun.

Good Day.

Choir, wash, blog.

 So as you can see, I've been having an idea involving Giraffes, here's hoping they improve. Giraffes are so cool, they run like they're in space, maybe I should attempt to draw one running... or maybe I should just take it one step at a time.

Photography housemate and scorned (for now) housemate are back and we had a nice family dinner. Fajitas are TASTY. The experience was made that bit more fun by denying it to the hungry boys in the house. Then I made some more Chocolate feast buns (cupcakes, whatever) because photography housemate hasn't had them before. One day I'll have her take a nice picture of them.

First day of uni tomorrow. My 9am lecture is called "mind and madness" I'm very excited about the "madness" part. Here's hoping second year - take 2, works out better than second year - take one. I'm only in one day a week and once the old loan gets through I'm going to do lots of drawing and I'm going to pester you all (and by all, I mean my one follower - thank you Elisa!) with all my attempts! 


P.s If you're disappointed with the photography quality, I took it myself. So don't think less of photography student housemate.

Hark the herald angels sing!

Christmas is looming! I'm sure many people would disagree and tell me it's too early but I need to think of more ideas and pronto. So far all I have is I cow dressed up as Santa and one with a really tacky Christmas tree.
I love tacky Christmas tree's, it's what I grew up with. Every year my mum would beg my dad to get a "normal" sized Christmas tree, luckily he'd always come back with a 12 ft one! We'd have climb up the stairs to put the star on the top. It's all about miss matched multicoloured decorations, most of them tatty and hand made from when my siblings and I made them in primary school a good 10-15 years a go now. Multi coloured lights and mass amounts of tinsel are also a must. Rather upsettingly, Dad got a tiny tree last year but was still decorated accordingly at least. So yes I thought it would be fitting to make a Christmas card that celebrates the brilliance of the tackiest of Christmas tree's.

Again the photography student housemate doesn't get back till tomorrow so have some examples of tacky Christmas tree's...

I’m not sure who I’m talking too, as I have no followers yet but alas I shall type on.
I haven’t been doing much card making, for I lack money and therefore lack supplies. Although I have had some ideas involving Barbra Streisand. They came when “woman in love” started play on my boyfriends lap top, and it was bloody amazing, I’d never heard it before and when I thought about it, I’d barely heard any of her stuff which was a travesty! Luckily now I can’t stop listening to her. “Guilty” is another brilliant song she did with Barry Gibbs. For the love of God, if there IS anyone reading this, please, I beg of thee, go and listen to her.
I’ve been doing a good bit of baking recently, I made some buns (apparently called “cakes” or “cup cakes” here in London) and I’m going to call them Oreo chocolate feasts. They’re chocolate buns with Cadbury’s buttons, an Oreo base and a chocolate fudge topping. I won’t lie it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life.
I’d love to put some photo’s up but i’m going to wait for my photography student house mate to get back and give me some tips on how to make a good picture first. In the mean time, here's a picture of a cow because they're brilliant.

p.s If any one has any tips of where to find some cheap but also nice rugs, do let me know!
