I’m kind of a sucker for the cute little personalised items, as you might have noticed! I was kindly offered a piece from MyNameNecklace.co.uk, who have a whole load of different name necklaces (obviously) amongst other personalised bits and pieces. Some are more subtle than others, and whilst the chunkier statement ones do look pretty cool, I prefer the more discreet ones than feeling like I might as well be wearing a white sticky label with my name on, a la induction week. Tiny-necklace-that’s-impossible-to-photograph it is! I could never find my name on any of those personalised pens, mugs, keyrings etc as a child (‘Lilly’ was the best I could find and that wrong spelling is my pet hate!) but it seems to be far more common now. Kinda prefer the dainty necklaces to gift shop keyrings though 🙂
How’s everybody’s week been so far? I’m now realising that it’s about the time to actually get my act together and properly stop timewasting/procrastinating. The number of times I feel like I’ve typed that is unreal but hopefully I’ll drum it into myself! She says, drifting off to browse one of 10 tabs currently open… Anyway, I know that this time last year I was well underway with GCSE revision so I really should be cracking on with it for AS levels about now if I want to maintain some form of life during exam time. Thinking slow and steady rather than manic at the end, hopefully! My 5 hour textiles exam was today and I *think* it went pretty well, but I could’ve completely misjudged my work so who knows. As exams go it was actually pretty chilled – I was expecting to feel the stress like the last 5 minutes in the Great British Sewing Bee (who’s been watching?) but I guesstimated a reasonable task to give myself so it wasn’t too bad. I’d known one of the invigilators for years too and I know she reads this blog, hiya Liz!
