not so good at writing on here of late. did ya notice? [humour me, come on... just say yes]
life is being, well, life-ish. it tends to get in the way of the important stuff (blogging of course. right?).
ok, i'll give you a bit more than that.
reasons i'm not posting much: time. i don't seem to have any of it these days. not that i'm complaining, at least i'm not complaining a lot. yet. spending a good deal of my "free" time with someone who i care very much for... who i'm not entirely comfortable writing about on here. so there's another reason. the stuff that's important in my life of late is stuff that i don't really want to divulge here. and the other stuff is BLOODY WORK DRAMAS which i'm sure are better kept inside my head... no need for you poor readers to be subjected to that.
still not doing any art (though feeling closer to action than i have in a while)
stressing about $$. need to be doing more hours at work, but am hating the damn place... and the subsequent miserable paychecks make me grumpier.
papa dearest is back from his latest adventure... bright eyed and bushy tailed... and requesting my company a little too often. i was kinda hoping that his reinstatement into the family castle would give me a bit of breathing space from ma. no doubt they're feeling neglected, but right now i just don't care. i'm getting very choosy about who i spend my precious time with, and being related to me doesn't give automatic rights. :-)
got a new flattie... and another moving in in a week or so. sad that bex is going (off to a sun and booze filled aussie summer with a bunch of her nursing mates... do you too find that hilariously cliched? a porn film just waiting to be made. o wait... they already made that one).
getting a whole lot better at eating again *wahoooo*. food doesn't make me scrunch up my pretty wee nose in quite the same way that it did for the last 6 or so months. a very much needed improvement. how here's a tale for you: one day last week i managed to eat two whole bunches of asparagus. yes, 2 in a day. haven't been quite so keen to devour it since.
ok, now i'm gonna think of 3 good things to add to this post... not going to think too hard, whatever pops into my head in the next minute or two.
...give me another few seconds...
ukiyo-e, images of the floating world. love it. here's a good one for you... yes, right here. click on it!
crisp new drawing pad and pencils i bought today as a present for myself (yum)
rapunzel's bittersweet chocolate. mmm.
