The summer weather is continuing for longer than anticipated and it has been a week of barbeques and garden parties here at Chez Anne.Girls have had a couple of house parties this week and my garden is looking worse for wear as a result.Also all the sleeping bags etc have been left in my poor studio as if it wasn't suffering enough already with me reorganising. it!
Signed up to resume my Humanities degree course starting October, the Art History course. Got butterflies as a result as not studied formally for about two to three years. Really excited about it! At least this section will be in English as the European humanities module last time was through the medium of French. I have to say that did stretch me a bit as my French was "schoolgirl" and a little rusty however achieved a couple of straight "A"s on the course which was huge surprise.
Steampunk Fair in Cardiff will be a blast in August as not something that I have done before so really looking forward to that. There are going to fundraising activites for Help For Heroes on both days and some very interesting entertainment as well. Look at the page on Facebook for some ideas and information. The fair has been set for the fourth and fifth f August at the Owain Glyndwr pub just off the Hayes. There are some excellent restaurants and bars nearby so will be great. I am hoping to take a couple of "glamorous" assistants along so I can go and have a bit of fun and do some networking at the same time! Trying to improve my range of contacts etc at the moment as I think woefully inadequate.
I will be posting regularly from now on and am very pleased to say my followers are on the up, more than twenty on here and about one hundred and forty on Etsy. I am still surprised that anyone would be interested in my random ramblings but here we are. Love and light to you all,Anne.
