Buona sera. I had about 3 days last week where I didn't physically speak to anyone apart from transactions in shops. It was wonderful.
Sometimes I think I enjoy my own company a little too much. But give me a solid couple of days of baking, sewing and reading, nothing to do but fill time and I am content. However, saying that, it's definitely nice to have everyone back in town - I've been on lovely trips to St Andrews, seen the Muppets movie [ehhh. At one point I turned to my friend and hissed loudly "FUCK OFF, WALTER", which sounds a little extreme, unless you too have watched it and then you know exactly what I'm talking about], and gazing at pictures of diseased lady-gardens.
What?? Diseased va-jayjays?? I hear you ask, in shocked harmony. Yes. Diseased hoohas. I'm starting on obstetrics & gynaecology next week, which should be...interesting. There are certain things that you do not want to know about otherwise you will NEVER have sex/children ever. Don't google 'blue waffle'. Just don't.
Also not fun - hearing a seventy year old man talk about 'sophisticated foreplay'. I can't unhear that.
On the fateful Valentine's day of my last post, somewhere during my wine and electric blanket binge, I managed to impulse buy a Kindle. Do I already have an eReader? Well, yes, but it's really old and slow and Kindles are so pretty. So then I became obsessed with sewing little cases for things, which progressed into this absolute beauty of a laptop sleeve.
Yes, that is my actual address on the back. Decorative and functional. Incidentally, I made up this design during a sleepless night after watching The Woman In Black. I then fell asleep and had nightmares that my sewing machine was haunted.
