the last post was a complete jinx

so here i go. i've spent the last week watching reality tv with my boyfriend, whilst the swine flu gallops away from us. today we managed to walk for an hour. thankfully, no more reality tv - watched three hours of the wire in a day so far. walking one hour, tv three hours, sleeping rest of hours.

well, i'm awake and pottering about on the internet, as the music (something shimmering with ciccada sounds) has hypnotised my boyfriend by a resisted but unconquerable wave of sleep.

i'm keen to become more successful with my etsy shop - to live off it - not just to cover bills, but to earn enough to save - is my dream. i want to save for jam jars, decorative wreaths with tiny sugaredalmondcoloured birds, floral wallpaper, art prints, sheet music, dresses, future houses, christmas presents, and mad men (after the wire, it's my turn to buy a tv series for us to watch)

this past week i have been looked after so well by my housemate - we fell into comfortable silences to america's best dancecrew, and she helped us get better without ever being claustrophobic (that's the worry, with the week's incubation period). i miss sarah though, and feel like i've hardly seen her since july! can't wait to see her screenprinted picture soon.

this weekend i wish to achieve: chocolate cake
this week i wish to achieve: sort out my money, list lots on etsy, sell lots on etsy, watch season 4 of the wire



  1. aw sophie this entry is lovely, you do have a way with words. bek is an absolute star and i'm so glad you're on the mend. when i read this entry i imagined a future sophie house, and it is a beautiful imagining! i miss you too, when you're better and back we must make a lovely house meal and have wine and generally catch up on everything.
    hope all is well.

  2. You have an etsy shop? Very cool, I'll check it out!

  3. I have madmen, if you would like to save your pennies for other worthwhile purchases I can burn it onto dvd for you. :) x

  4. ah, i love the image of people sitting together silently watching ABDC. there's always so much loud kvetching about lil mama at our house.

  5. aww wow, saz!! that would be so perfect!!!! thank you! i'll give you some blank dvds in return, along with the obligatory chocolate/cake shaped payment!! thank you so much!!

    thank you k and sarah too :-)

    huzzah - we had to turn abdc over in the end - even though we were glued to our seats with swine flu, we couldn't handle any more reality tv!! hehe
