So rather appropriately, I am dressed in a very librarian-ish style in these photos, especially with my big bun. I have absolutely no idea how I managed to do that bun, and I WISH I did, because I think it looked pretty good with all that volume. I've not managed to recreate it since! You can't quite see the bun itself in these photos, but trust me, it was a satisfying bun.
This is my absolute favourite mug. Actually, that's a lie; I have two favourite mugs. Dan likes huge, huge mugs that hold a pint of coffee, whereas I prefer a nice medium size. It'll hold a satisfying amount of tea, but it still looks fairly dainty, and I won't sprain my wrist trying to lift it! This one is from a Japanese pottery/crockery shop called Doki. We also have a set of bowls, but I want
EVERYTHING from this shop. Everything is so beautiful and unique, and it's all so well made.

In addition to my new job as a library assistant, I suppose I could tentatively call myself a poet, as I've now taken part in my first ever poetry reading! This was an event to raise awareness of the incarcerated members of the Russian Punk band, Pussy Riot, and it was curated by a new friend of mine whom I met on the Golden Hour tour, a poet called S. J. Fowler. My poem was probably the least political of all those read at the event, so I was extremely nervous beforehand. As each poet got up to read their piece, it dawned on me again and again that I am just NOT a political poet. Nevertheless, my poem was well received, and I would very much like to do something like that again. I have a lot to work on, but ultimately, I want to be a writer, and this is a step towards my goal!
Have a quick peek at my reading here, if you'd like. Also, have a look at the other poets if you have a moment.
See you soon!
