what’s on my desk? ava, a lot of the time. the day i got it and put it together she plonked straight down on top and it’s been a firm favourite since.

i’ve lived in this flat for almost 7 years now and in that time i’ve never had a desk. when i’m making collages, doing blog stuff or just browsing the internet, i’ve¬†used my lap, the floor and sometimes a tiny foldable table. i can’t tell you how good it feels to have an actual desk to work on after all this time!

currently i’ve¬†mostly just been using my laptop on it so i can type at a more comfortable height, and edit photos without a huge amount of glare behind me. i have a few new collages to share soon too…

firstly: new tattoo! it’s healed and ready to share. i¬†love it so much and it was worth every penny. it may look a little ‘squashed’ in the photo due to the¬†angle i¬†was at to take it, but i¬†can assure you it’s a lovely, round¬†moon.

it really feels like summer now, doesn’t it? well, for the last week anyway. for many years i would¬†never have my¬†legs out (or my arms) and i can’t believe¬†i¬†ever¬†managed that.

my body temperature is always out of flux so i get hot as quickly as i get cold, but how did i go so many summers always wearing leggings or tights? glad i got over that body hangup. always going to have milk bottle legs though!

snapshots of my week – 11th june

snapshots, photography by

shall i be predictable and say how rubbish and stressful this week was? oh, how redundant. this year has been a real test of my patience, sanity ..just ..everything. it’s important to me, now more than ever to focus on the small things. though overall things have been rubbish – in a couple of cases, awful – this week, good things have happened. for example, FINALLY getting a job interview! i thought it would never happen again. i can’t make any guarantees i’ll get the job, but for someone to finally give me an interview has given me back a smidgen of hope.
