Keeping it real

So life has been looking pretty good on the 'ol blog recently and most of the time it really is, but just for fun, and because I am an advocate of keeping it real, here are a few secrets of the last few weeks which will hopefully bring a smile to your face!

1. I haven't got around to posting my project life from last week. I'm not bothered. It didn't get finished until Wednesday and by that point, I had thoroughly lost interest in the last week.

2. They don't tell you when you start project life that there is a certain level of monotony about it. But the good parts of this project so outweigh this factor.

3. I walked to Tesco last week to pick up a snack I didn't need, got back only to find out that I had run out of teabags and milk- the two things I did need!

4. I am the most creative when I should be doing other things. I think I have created and had more ideas  for craft in my moments of procrastination than I ever have when I am totally free. Why is this?!

5. I spent a happy hour at the weekend making fork pom poms. I have yet to work out what to do with them. Needless to say they look pretty!

6. My poor little phone is falling apart and rather than look after the little thing better I am just becoming more envious of you i-phone users.

7. I was given two bars of chocolate this week and a bag of dried pineapple. I still have half a bar each of the chocolate left but the pineapple is all gone. I don't recognise myself any more.

8. I am about a year too late on the BBC Sherlock series and have just finished series 2. I am spending my revision breaks reading conspiracy theories and am dying for series three to be aired!

9. You know revision is going well when you refer to doing your washing as a "break". (Not as bad as a friend of mine though who was so bored of working he went and ironed all his shirts. He said it was a very happy hour and a half!)

10. I am so excited for Sian's great big swap of small things and have my swap all ready to go but haven't managed to get to the post office yet. I'm sorry Sandra, it will be on its way soon!

What little, funny, not so perfect secrets about your day to day life would you share?

A lovely post, Abi, and you have taken us into your confidence so nicely and made me smile several times in the process. intrigued by the fork and the wool - will we get to see the finished articles? And I so recognise 7. I remember my DD texting from the supermarket saying she'd looked at her basket and it was full of fruit and veg and not a single bar of chocolate and what has happened to her?!

I enjoyed your day-to-day comments. I usually do this about once a week. I don't always have something profound to say---okay, I pretty much never have anything profound to say! I would like to see what those fork pom poms look like.

I'm always going to the shops and coming back without the things I needed.

Oh I loved reading your post, Abi. Would love to know more about those fork pompoms, and I'm another who is at my creative peak when there's other stuff to be done. If you figure out why that is let me know! LOL

I,too, am completely intrigued by the fork pompoms!!

fork pompoms are soooooooo cute and apparently easy to make. I am so behind with project life you would not believe but I have been doing other projects too. I still haven't posted my swap either as I have run out of funds at the mo and have to wait until next Monday.

I love how you can bring me back (over 30 years back) to my university days with posts like this.
I am procrastinating like mad on grading exams and have been neglecting other aspects of my work-work.
But I am helping my little girl get through her last week of school with as many extra credit assignments as possible.

I'm with Rinda! You are taking me back to walking to the Garage shop for snacks..it's funny, when we end up there now for something it feels exactly the same. A lovely post

Sinead said...

Love this post Abi, and I can identify with many of these things too! xxx

Had to laugh at the walking to the store to get something you didn't need and not getting what you did need. That sounds oh so familiar.

I think we all have times like this. I've finding it VERY hard to get back into blogging and creating since we've returned from our trip. I hope inspiration comes soon!
