Life is really rather mundane at the moment! Bit of a lame time of year really. Ah well. I have this little guy.

Today has been a busy but not much to show for it kind of day. We went food shopping, made a gammon joint for dinner and visited both families.

Song Of The Day: Lana Del Rey - Blue Jeans
Reason: Loved her performance on The Voice. I think she's really different live and don't really see why she gets any crap!

Today I went for a meeting about working on a short comedy horror film, the script sounds really good and I can't wait to start shooting! Whilst in Manchester, I also went to the Slipknot photo exhibit by Paul Harris at the Manchester Photographic Gallery. It has really enforced how much I adore Slipknot and they are still my ultimate favourite band! I picked up a signed photo book too! We also went into Liverpool to Jamie's Italian. It was actually bad this time, super poor and slow service, uncooked seafood in my dinner and it just generally had an unpleasant after taste. I've really been put off and won't be going again.


Song Of The Day: Slipknot - Surfacing
Reason: One of my ultimate favourite songs!

Today I spent an hour enouraging the ratties to venture into the outside (of the cage) world. They were eating peas off my hand but having to reach outside the door to get them, Quigley was the bravest and managed to climb nearly all the way onto my hand but chickened out coming any further!

Song Of The Day: Azealia Banks - 212

My little rat babies are getting so big already! They've already grown and seem to be quite settled into their new cage now. The love digging about and rearanging everything and also love throwing all of their bedding out of their house! Jacques and Quigley have also started to go a bit lighter grey on top, and all three of them are bigger. They're getting used to us fairly quickly, we've been feeding them frozen peas in the palm of our hands and today I managed to get Quigley to climb on to me and eat some peas! He also climbed up my arm and had a good think about whether he fancied coming of out his cage, which he decided against in the end, maybe in a couple of days! I really love having them and they're great pets!

Spring Outfit

This is what I'm looking to wear this spring. The weather is getting better but it still isn't summer, so I've teamed a nice floaty skirt with tough boots and a bleached jacket. I think the chain jewellery gives it a tough, biker style edge.

Super late one today as I've been doing the stocktake at work, fun times! We were allowed to wear our own clothes which makes it seem less like work but it was strange coming out and it being so quiet! I've started wearing my padlock necklace again, although I've put it on a normal silver chain rather than the thick chain it was on so that I can wear it in a more subtle way.


Song Of The Day: Green Day - 86
Reason: Not heard this in ages, reminds me of being younger

Today isn't strictly a photo I've taken but I wanted to showcase my friend's artwork, which stars little old moi! The theme was vulnerable women and I dressed as a hooker so that she'd have a basis for her ideas. The things you do for friends eh?!

Today my mum got me a gift from the shop formerly known as Octopus, I think it's called Psyclone now. It's a noodle/rice bowl in the shape of a face with a chinese style hat! So cute!! Apparently they don't make them any more, but this one was in a store cupboard!

Today myself and Stu made some stop motion animation clips. We actually spent most of our time making our 'Morphs' out of plasticine but did make a couple of short clips. We're aiming to practice some more and then make a 'proper' short piece. You can see the video below or on our Little Lost Pegasus Films YouTube Channel, where you can also see the 'Vanished' trailer which has been getting quite a few views!

Song Of The Day: Korn - Here To Stay

The rat babies are settling in well today, they seem to have a bit of a mad hour or two of running about and feeding at around 8pm and they've settled into their little wooden cottage. I've been trying to get them used to me by feeding them bits of lettuce which they seem to love. They weren't too mad on the cucumber we bought especially just for them though! Quigley also went into the hammock for a quick run around, I'm not sure he was too convinced by it yet though!!

Song Of The Day: Sheryl Crow - If It Makes You Happy

Today we cooked the venison burgers we got from Chester Food & Drink Festival. To be honest, I wasn't a huge fan as I found it to be really dense and wasn't mad about the taste really. Ah well, at least I tried it!

Song Of The Day: Pink - Sober
Reason: Really live Pink's angsty stuff

Today has been a crappy day overall. But it is Friday 13th so I'll just let it go. However, me and Stu, my co-filmmaker at Little Lost Pegasus Films, decided to make a stop motion together using the crappy kinder egg toys. It was just a super quick go before we get together next week and have a go at making some proper ones (better than Hippo Love!). I have decided that Final Cut Pro X is a piece of shite and would like to declare my undying love for Avid. If someone would like to buy me Avid please get in touch...

Today Facebook has bought Instagram (one of my favourite iPhone apps, ever!) for $1billion. That's a pretty hefty sum of money for a little company with just a phone app, so huge congrats to them. I've ready several articles commenting that apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic (another of my personal faves) are killing 'proper' photography. I have to say I disagree. I love film and photography and am interested in anything visual. Although I think of photography as just a fun hobby of mine, I do want to get better at it and am interested in retro cameras, toy cameras, lomography etc. As you may know, I've recently been given a Praktica BCX and this is really the first proper film camera I've ever had so I'm just adoring it at the moment and having fun experimenting. I can honestly say that if it wasn't for my initial interest in photography followed by the fact that I was able to use apps such as Instagram that I may not be the proud owner of that Praktica at this moment. Instagram allows me, and its millions of other users to, experiment super cheaply and is fun to use to make my photos a little different from the norm. So, good luck to Instagram, here's hoping you only change for the better!

After making up with one of my best friends and a nice meal at good old Nandos, it's been a decent, if not slow, day. It's also been an eye opener to how two faced silly, immature little girls can be. Hasn't anyone heard of being professional in the workplace?? On a lighter note, aren't the toys you get in Kinder Eggs rubbish now! What happened to the cute collectables et al?

Kinder Surprise:

Song Of The Day: Trivium - Dying In Your Arms
Reason: My fave Trivium song, haven't heard it for probably a year or so, but still a great song.

Woo! Today is my 100th Photo Every Day post! I wish I'd have remembered this earlier in the day as I would have tried to take more photos for a special post. Boo! I have however been taking a few photos with my Lomography Fisheye and my Praktica so stay tuned! Today we went to the Chester Food and Drink Festival which was really good. There was loads of stalls and plenty of things to try. We watched a cooking demonstration too and the boy was selected to taste test the final dishes. We ended up buying some homemade fudge, some wood pigeon breast, venison burgers, some honey and 'the world's best knife sharpener' (which in fairness is pretty damn good). We also got more easter eggs from the boy's family, so we'll be super fat for the forseable future.

Song Of The Day: Refused - New Noise

So, today was Easter and here is mine and the boy's easter stash! My mum also bought me a nice heart shaped picnic basket, it's very cute! I spent the evening sorting out my vintage cameras, a Praktica BCX and an Olympus Trip 35, and reading manuals so that I can try and get the best out of them. I've also managed to find two rolls of expired film so I'll be using those in the Praktica and my Lomography Fisheye tomorrow when we go to the Chester Food and Drink Festival.

Today I recieved some exciting news! I got a runner/driver's job in London for this Sunday. Just waiting to hear final details then I will reveal all! Also, bought two big tubs (like 1kg each!) of sweets for a mere £3 odd from work today. Going to use the containers for storing my baking stuff.

Today has been a bit of a day of realisation. The realisation that people can be silly, daft and can also become delusional because of others two faced behaviour. My geckos never let me down however.

Reason: Cos some people are shit!
