Frame Friday 002.
0001. Err, so, where has the summer gone? The closest I get to it now is looking at this photograph I took during a brief 10 minute sunny interval a few days a go. Roll on winter, I miss those freezing cold days where snugly coats and mittens are a must have.
0002. All my confirmation letters and logins and all those other bits of paperwork people like to send me have come through from The Open University. From the start of October I will officially be a student, yes, again! I’ll be starting with AA100 The Arts Past & Present and thanks to the wonder of facebook I’ve ‘met’ lots people in the same boat. Good news is we’re all equally as nervous, bad news is they’re all considerably more prepared than I am. I need to get cracking!
0003. It’s been a slightly more stressful week than I would have liked but I think things are on their way to being sorted. My concession at work is under new management and I’ve decided to leave because I don’t agree with some of the new ways of doing things. I’m not the brightest crayon in the box I will freely admit, but I’m also not an idiot and don’t want to dread everyday that I have to work. Usually I can’t make quick decisions but handing in my notice & applying for the concession next door wasn’t something I had to think twice about.
0004. In happier news I got a job at the concession next door, I start next month and my new manager is wonderful! She’s looked out for me ever since I started my current job, which of course she didn’t have to do since I wasn’t working for her, but she did & I’ll be forever grateful for that. I won’t say which concession it is, because I’ve mentioned the town I live in before & someone could come and stalk me which wouldn’t be good. But I will say that the clothes are so much more the kind of thing I love, I can really get excited about them & hopefully be good at helping other people find an outfit they love. I have a feeling I know where my wages will be going, but shhhh, I need to save my pennies!
0005. I ventured into the world of Boohoo.com this week & I must say I’m very impressed. Their new website is much easier to navigate & a couple of their £8 dresses and cardigans caught my eye. They’re obviously not amazing quality, there were a few stray threads here and there but that’s nothing I can’t fix since I don’t have the money to splash on expensive clothes. I’ll have a little fashion post up sometime soon - maybe I’ll rope the boy into taking some pictures for me!
0006. Next week I’m finally going to visit my boyfriend for the first time in what seems like forever. We don’t really have any exciting plans apart from making a trip to Yo! Sushi for some yummy kaiso salad and vegetable yaki soba. I’m so excited! 3 days to go!!
