An apology and a giveaway

Ok as I have managed to terrify my Mum with that last post, and on re-reading it I sounded very ungrateful to my friends.

My friends are wonderful, over the past few days I've needed distracting from my big messy home life and they have done the job beautifully. Some have fed me more than a bottle of wine, and kept me up till 3am talking, others have cooked for me, and others have just let me know they still know who I am. It's all very appreciated, and has provided much fun over the past couple of days. However this not disguise the fact that my once beautiful flat is no longer a place I wish to spend much time in, I am always on my own here and it just allows my brain to wander and ponder at the mess I am in.

Anyhow, I have found a new house for next year with two of my friends, it is lovely and 5 minutes from one of my favourite pubs! I've started looking for jobs, but none are being advertised in our local area.

Also my gift from Niobe has finally made it here. She's printed off 3 of her lovely photos, and they are waiting to be put in to frames. So in the spirit of gift giving I thought I'd offer to do the same. I don't quite know what I'm going to make yet, but I will craft something for you. First 5 people to leave me a comment, and send me an email (hilltopkatie at gmail dot com) will be sent something. the only condition being you make the same offer on your own blog.

Misery guts

I've just sat for 5 minutes staring at this screen trying to think what to say. I think I've come to the conclusion that no words can express what I feel right now. Is it wrong to want someone to put me first now and again, I seem to spend so much time doing stuff for everyone else, but right now I don't think I even know how to put me first, I can't seem to take help or open up to people about the soggy mess in my head right now.

Fear not though, your normal cheery service will resume shortly, in the meantime I will return to my knitting, I can see today being a productive evening.

I can see clearly now ...

(best sung un-tunefully into a hairbrush)
Crikey I hadn't realised how poor my eyesight had become, anyway here, for your approval are my new glasses

You can tell I like them, as I'm actually wearing them, for years anybody who hasn't seen me just before I go to sleep would have no idea that I had poor eyesight, I lived in contacts.

I've just had my first day back at university, and blimey the place is dead, you even struggle to get some lunch as most of the food places in the union are closed.
