For the first time in months, I'm not feeling ill and first blog in a month! That's an achievement in and of itself. I've been suffering from a lot of stress and 2 separate viruses that have, as I mentioned recently, given me a loss of sleep. But it's been a little while and I'm feeling better and stronger. I still have some stress which I think might have contributed to a lot of my problems, but I am getting better at something else too - recognising when there are moments I can be proud of and pause over, and that not every problem is mine to solve, or even mine to procrastinate and run away from. I've got a longer blog in mind about changes in the way I think. And exciting blogs about Lego to come. :)
It's the first outfit post in a while, and I want to properly rave about how much I love this jumpsuit. It is literally the best thing ever (as they say on Rookie). It makes me feel so sexy and cool, whilst also being delightfully comfy. Also, I wore this to go clubbing in the City of London and I wore it to go wandering past the dear in Richmond park, and it felt totally right in both places. It makes me feel the sassy punk girl that I like to think I am inside. I am stopping short of writing an ode to it.
(It was from Asos, but I literally got the last one in stock, sorry)
I went to Richmond park a year ago, and walked these same paths, with these same friends and it felt like a brilliant capture of the passage of time. It's years since university, and still these same people matter so much to me. I've changed a lot, learnt a lot, and am ready for change again, but despite all that the things that make me at peace with the world are exactly the same.

|Also note: This was November the First and I was wearing sandals.|
|Sword earrings are the best. Got them from Hey Chickadee! here and are designed by the brilliant Noelle Stevenson, writer of Nimona and Lumberjane illustrater.|
|We found this.|
This last picture isn't taken by Andy or I, it's by my brilliant friend Nay (pictured above) and shows both the outfit photo taking in action and a bonus if your eyes are sharp. :)
Thanks for the patience with me in this time, and my lack of communication. There's been a lot going on, but I hope to ease myself back into blogging and getting involved with the amazing places I've been neglecting again.
