carlos and my quick transformation into a pensioner.

okay so as a late christmas present, i got a new car! score! i've felt like my wings have been clipped since i lost young betsy to bodywork erosion and she therefore failed her MOT in the words of the man in the garage "i'm surprised this car is still actually running, everything that CAN be wrong with a car IS wrong with the car." can't bring myself to take her to the scrapper though.
anyway onwards and upwards, i got my new car (carlos) and he's a nissan micra, which is known for being a car mainly driven by those enjoying the later years of their life, let's face it though even though i'm 21 i tend to dress in clothing more suited to someone at 61.
along with this purchase i have also began to crochet, yep that's right. i'm currently on may way to creating a granny blanket, it's so much fun! i'm using it as a wind down after full days of university work which is stressing me out greatly, or as some of you may think and me too, a great way to procrastinate and do something pointless instead of productive.

anyway these factors coupled with the realisation that i haven't been on a night out in a month and really have no desire to do so has made me feel like a retiree, enjoying crafts and baking much more than drinking and socialising. maybe i can even get away with saying "respect your elders" to my mum and sister when they're nagging me about doing work. probably not though.


AND HERE IS MY GRANNY BLANKET (not really, i haven't finished my first square yet but i will show you my progression)
