Adult Christmas.

wpid-c360_2014-12-14-19-04-54-753.jpg The older I get the less time/ cares I have for christmas. Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoy Christmas time with all the decorations, and celebration (not the music. I. Hate. Christmas music with a passion) but, it seems to have lost a lot of the magic it had as a child.

I've been having "Adult Christmas" feelings for 4 or 5 years now, but I suppose the revelation has been more evident this year due to me having my first "Adult Birthday" (ie, having a celebration was fun, but a little bit of a chore, rather than very exciting, like it  has been pretty much all my life(I still enjoyed it, but it was just another ordinary day))

I think the other reason it feels less exciting this year is because putting up the tree was a little bit of a chore. My family and I kind of grumped the tree together, rather than exciting the tree into existence.

I love how it turned out though!

We've never put a tree up this late. Even last year, when we were insanely busy, the tree still went up in the first week of December.  It feels a lot more like Christmas and the end of the year now its up. I just kind of wish it was still magic.

I'm going to leave you with photos of me snuggling my dogs (much to their annoyance (They're too cute not to snuggle!))

Icecream casuals

I had a very laid back day today as far as my clothing was concerned. It was one of those days where you stay in your pyjamas till 3pm. I had a very valid excuse though! I was working.

image

I'm going to attempt to sell some jewellery at a market in Davidstown! Anyway the pendants you see above took pretty much the whole day to sculpt and paint, hence why I stayed in my pyjamas for so long.

image

I did get dressed eventually!! Rohan and I went out for a walk after I had finished the sculpting work. I was feeling a bit lazy, so I went for a more chill outfit compared to what I normally wear.

image

The walk we had was lovely. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and we got to go to spotlight!!

Elmo and icecream

image

This is what I wore Wednesday!

image

Despite the fact I'm on uni break I'm spending quite a bit of time at uni. I'm currently catching up on my practice backlog, which involves lots of rehearsals / setting up in the practice rooms.

image

The last time I wore this Cardigan I was told that I looked as if I had skinned Elmo ( I would like to assure everyone that no elmo's were harmed in the creation of this blog post.)

I also got a new camera! It's a Sony qx10 which is basically just a lense. It has an adhoc WiFi signal which allows it to connect to your phone, which you use as the viewfinder.

To celebrate I took the following pictures of my dogs. At night. In my lounge room. (if I had been using my phone, they would have been a noisy mess)
