Happy, Happy! Joy, joy!

Sorry it's been a while since I've blogged. Hopefully, I can get into some kind of routine, now. I had mega problems at the shared house I was living in, so I had to move out right away. I've been in a new place now for about a week and a half. It's a full house, which is awesome! Also, I started a work trial for a new job a couple of weeks ago. Only another week and a bit before I find out if they will be keeping me or not.

It's been hard to get a normal amount of sleep, so I haven't been around much. Falling asleep a lot, much to the annoyance of my crafting pal, Becca ;)

I haven't gotten all of the furniture I need in order to stop living out of bags/boxes, but I do now have a craft room. I'd like to have enough energy to use it on a daily basis soon too! Luckily, it is Easter next week, so I will have a long weekend :D

It's not fully done yet, but here is my rudimentary crafting room:

Also, these are the newest fabrics I bought. They are all decor weight 100% cotton, with large prints. I'm hoping to make a few bags from them this weekend :)

I'm so glad that things finally seem to be turning around for me, and hoping that I get a normal amount of energy back very soon, so that I can make many more things :)

Hey everyone! Sorry for my absence lately, I went away for 2 nights last weekend, to get together some of my stuff and enjoy a weekend of free food :)

When I came back on Monday night, I found that I had been robbed. My room was ransacked, and all of my stuff was just thrown all over the floor. All they managed to take (as far as I can tell) is a USB modem, which I had got from the O2 shop the week before. It cost me £10, and I had topped it up with £15 for the internet, so I was upset because, to me, that was over a week's worth of food :( All they will have got for it is a couple of quid. Nobbers!

Anyway, I got back, tidied the room, washed the things that had been thrown all over the floor, and after that I didn't have the heart to try and make my room nice anymore. So, I hid from the blogosphere. I didn't have much money for food, so I bought a loaf of milk roll bread, and a pint of milk, woo! Except someone has stolen both things out of the fridge/freezer.

Now, I just want to get out of here as soon as possible. My Dad has offered to help me get enough money to move into a new place, but I will have to wait until next weekend. Until then, I've got eyes up my arse *humph*

I've lost so much weight over the last month, but I wouldn't recommend the stress/starvation diet to any of you!

Anyway, I've dusted myself off again, and have moved a couple more of my things in (nothing valuable, just so you know!). I've tidied and cleaned the room again.

My bedding is too big for the bed, which is why it looks all deshevelled LOL. When I move, I hope there is a double bed, or no bed at all, so that I can bring my own from my Mum's.

I am now the proud owner of a folding chair and folding table, so I have somewhere to sit to eat my dinner. My stepdad brought me over a bottle of strawberry cider, so I put the table to the test :)

I should be getting a camera cable this week, which will mean that I can list my goodies again, and start taking proper pictures for ze blog!

Oh, and so that you can see my weight loss, this is what I looked like before! (please note that I am hiding all of my chins behind that nifty cowl LOL)

Anyway, onwards and upwards, as they say!
