The weekend came and went in what felt like a whirlwind for me. I finished work at 3pm on saturday and accompanied my lovely friend Erin over to Irezumi tattoo studio in Glasgow for her 3 hour sitting. She's a brave girl! Turns out her tattoo artist was Stephen Kelly - the very man that did my swallows two years ago at a completely different studio :) So now I know where he is working I am going to keep him in mind for the new year as some new ink may be on the horizon.
Erin will need to go come back for another sitting to finish it all off, I cant believe though I forgot to take a picture before we left the studio on sat! Was looking amazing so far - beautiful butterflies in colour from her foot going up her leg. In the next sitting she is getting some background put in and the butterlies continuing onto the next foot. Do you have any ink? And did you go yourself to get it? Erin had originally planned on going herself, but I'm glad I was there to chat away and distract her! Cause even though she didnt flinch, theres no denying it hurts a tad.
Working later hours and always JUST missing my train home means the occasional dabbling in the above - to keep me warm while I wait on the next train. Fruits of the forest cupcake and Toffee Nut Latte ♥ M&S also do some amazing snacks that are only available at christmas time. Their lunch range for Shelter, with limited edition sandwiches and desserts, is so yummy. I'm a total sucker for stinky crisps, and wish the Shelter Gammon and Chutney crisps were an all year round flavour. Plus, its for a very good cause. Can't imagine not having a roof over my head... especially not in winter.
On saturday night we settled down for the X Factor and Sweeney Todd afterwards. Was a bit gruesome but by golly I love that film. Mr Depp has a lovely singing voice ;) I fell asleep, curled up on the couch with Millie and the above was david trying to snap me on my SLR quickly. He does know how to use my camera but I don't think it was on auto for him this time :p Hence me looking like something out of a drunken haze!
And I'm sure you've seen enough of this to last you a life time... but this was our sunday.
We had planned to go shopping for our very first christmas tree and some decorations, and perhaps get our monthly food shop a few days early. But the (pretty much horizontal) snow blizzard during the night left no cars able to get in and out of our street. My dad said at this point the main roads werent much better. So we settled for a new groceries from the co-op down the road, and some snowman building instead! I did more watching than building mind you... cause I cant find my mittens and there was only so much socks over hands I could take. Our poor snowman was kicked down a few hours later, we should have done him in the back garden rather than out the front. Maybe it was his demonic apple eyes that drove them to it? We were both pretty tired out after playing in the snow and I went for another nap before the Xfactor on sunday night. Weekend naps... I can see a pattern emerging here!
The snow is still pretty heavy out our way, I managed to get the train ok to work today but davids car was snowed in, so the lucky boy had a wee day off. Wish I had brought my snowboard over from my mums house, I didnt think I'd be using it any time soon so when we moved into the flat I didnt bring it with me. There are so many hills around our area that I could take it for a ride on - so as you can imagine I am not HUGELY regretting that decision! :( Maybe I can persuade my mum to drive and meet me halfway with it once the roads clear a bit more - in hope that we get another snow spell over the christmas holidays. How has the snow effected your area recently? Are there ANY parts of the country that don't have any yet? My family in norway have to deal with this weather all year round... and yet year after year in britain we come to an absolute standstill. When will we ever learn!? :)
