Put Something on the End of It and Get a Damn Job.

In between watching Jeremy Kyle and doing the ironing, I made a body for Olive.

I drew this character last semester and thought I'd make a model of her. I could only go this far though, because for reasons best kept to myself, I have of late been avoiding the International Headquarters of Fluffycloud Studios.

The Intelligence dept has now deemed it safe to return, so watch this space for more Olive action.

In other news I am discovering more and more things I can do now that my MA is over. Today, for example, I had lunch with an old friend and a very enjoyable chat. Is this what it's like to be...normal?

4. Walk the dog

5. Read a book

6. Watch brilliant telly (Being Human)

7. Watch crappy (but in brilliant way) telly (Desperate Housewives)

8. With no particular purpose...doodle!

Two things I want to spend more time with now I have finished my MA.

Well, at least one of them looks enthusiastic.

I got the ukulele from my thoughtful son for Christmas and am very much looking forward to impressing everyone with my until now undiscovered musical talent. I have already learnt one chord, and spent rather a long time playing it, which is why the dog looks so depressed. But I learnt a chord! (OK, so it only involved putting one finger on one fret, but still...)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Well, the degree show comes down tomorrow afternoon, heralding the beginning of the end of all official uni shenanigans. (The show moves to Cambridge on a smaller scale now.)

It has been wonderful to catch up with all my classmates again and to see their fab work. We alternate between punching the air, whooping with joy at our new freedom, and clinging to each other sobbing.

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day to one and all. Here's the card I made for the Mister...
...who made me a lovely 3-course dinner today. (Of course he's listening to the football now, but the romance was good while it lasted!)
