It’s been a bit quiet here over the past week, because I’ve had some job troubles. My current contract came to an end and I wasn’t sure what was happening with the new company I was supposed to be transferring to. But it has worked out ok and I’m on paid leave for a month, so I now have lots of free time on my hands! I’m going to try and get some more acrylic designs drawn up, and work my way through a massive backlog of DVDs and Blurays. I have a terrible habit of buying films and tv series, and then just leaving them on my shelf without watching them. So every few months I have to self-impose a ban on buying new things until I have watched most of the older ones. This week’s task is finishing my Buffy the Vampire Slayer boxset. I bought it two years ago in a sale, watched up to the middle of Season 6 and then left it. I can think of worse things than lying in bed and watching Buffy all day.
Last weekend I had a friend come to visit, so we spent our days wandering London and shopping. I was actually very good and resisted buying anything in Tatty Devine, and then I undid all my good work in Forbidden Planet and Kid Robot. I got myself Amy Pond and the Eleventh Doctor with a fez and a mop from the newest Doctor Who figures, plus some more Qees, Bearbricks and Dunnys. Unfortunately I ended up with quite a few duplicates so I will have to ebay those. I also got the most adorable blind boxed mini Lunartik Teacup, which I loved in the full size but it was far too big for my shelf. I’ll have to take some photos soon as my collection seems to be growing exponentially!
