Falling in Love Again…With My DSLR

I clearly remember the day that I went to go and buy my very first DSLR.

After months and months of saving, opening the box and pulling out it's shiny, perfect, black Canon body, I must have resembled a little girl on Christmas morning. I couldn't have imagined that morning, that less than two years later it would be sitting in its bag at the top of my cupboard; lonely, abandoned and unused for over six months.

A few weeks ago that was the case. Getting overly involved in the hustle and bustle of everyday life meant that I had totally forgotten about my old friend.

But recently all of that has changed, and I'm so looking forward to the fast approaching December holidays to get snapping away!

In the mean time here are a few recent snaps of my furry little monster…

The Designers Bad Hair Day

You know how so often you find that your hairdresser has more 'bad hair days' than any one else you know. Well thats what I feel it's like being a designer, give me a design project for anyone but myself and it's no trouble at all. But the moment I have to design something for myself I seem to get trapped in a web of indecisive, non-directive total confusion. 

The last few weeks have been pretty eventful. I wrote my first set of honours exams, all of Charlie Brown's Masters lectures are slowly coming to an end  (I can't believe he starts working from the beginning of next year). And today we sold our beloved 'Frogger', Charlie Brown's bright green Kia Picanto that's been with us for almost 10 years now. 

The year is coming to a very speedy ending all of a sudden! Having to focus on work (and up until recently my studies) meant that there was little time to think about doing anything other than the task that lay directly ahead. Now, after having finished writing exams, I feel like I have so much spare time on the one hand, and an impossible amount of things to do on the other.

It is for this very reason that I am overly excited to tell you, that after a lot of back and fourth I have finally managed to redesign my CV, and I am currently working on updating and spring cleaning my website.
