Celebrate The Small Things: 10 July
I spent most of this week thinking about the game I’m working on. I had some A.I. bugs to sort out, but managed to find the solution eventually. I also found some time to do some baking and made my first ever batch of muffins, coconut and cherry. I’d bought some from a cafe that turned out to have very little flavour and was disappointing, so I took up the challenge to make some myself.
As I’m attending a wedding this weekend I attempted to create my own art work for the card as I wanted to do something special for them. I’ve been making final preparations for going such as getting my eyebrows threaded – ouch -, dying my hair and working out how to do it up – I love having an excuse to dress up. I’d ordered a fascinator a few weeks back to compliment my outfit, but due to postal strikes in Germany it didn’t seem like it was going to arrive on time. Luckily it arrived yesterday and it looks amazing.
There’s also a shop closing down near where I live. It’s a bit of a shame because it’s a really cool shop, but it did mean they were taking 75% off everything on top of other deals. I had a fun time looking around and managed to pick up 10 DVDs for a fiver – most of which are horror films. Speaking of horror, we spontaneously went to a late night showing of Insidious 3. That’s a bit of a treat for me because my partner and friends don’t like horror and so I can’t always convince somebody to come see these films at the cinema. I usually miss out and have to wait until they get released. It was very jumpy and a lot scarier than the 2nd film, but made me laugh at times too.
My partner had to go away for work this week and I’ve been missing him very much – as silly as that sounds, I mean it’s only a few days really. He came back last night and so I’m really looking forward to spending some time together and of course attending the wedding to come.
