Last night was a balls up. Less said the better. Had ‘nuff of let downs this week. Jade and I went to book our tattoos today. So we’re booked in for a tag-team-tattoo sesh at The Studio this Wednesday morning at 11. I’m going first then I’m gonna pass the baton onto Jade and she goes from around 1pm. Just gonna get my outline this sesh because I’m a pauper and I can...

Surprisingly Productive Day
Plans didn’t follow through so I found myself on my Jack Jones in town so I decided to make the most of wasting £3.50 on a bus ticket and go for a wander around the Northern Quarter. Being alone’s not so bad when you’re armed with an iPod. Came across some gallery that Phil and I went to over a year ago so I went in to see what was new. Totally forgotten what it’s called....
lostsecrets asked: are you coming 42s then on friday? :) X
No, shut up Morrissey, every day is not like Sunday - today is Tuesday, you don’t need to remind me about the grey weather I live in Manchester and have access to a window. It’s hard enough to drag myself out of bed to go to work without your dreary voice crying down the radio to me. Definitely woke up on the wrong side of bed this morning. No particular reason, just having one of...
Hate that nobody takes me seriously when I say I bruise easily. I look like I’ve been fucking beat up. el oh el.
I emerged around 2pm wearing a tea cosy hat, band tee and leggings, ate some noodles, doodled a phoenix head and watched hours of catchup tv. I could be a student.
Went for a power nap
woke up with a sore throat and aching arms, legs and spine. I can’t do anything right. xo
Helen's Happy Birthday
To cling onto her youth and try to ignore the fact that she wasn’t a teenager any more we started the night bowling. Lauren bought her a hideous black and yellow bowling shirt with ‘Helen’s Hell Raisers’ embellished on the front pocket. Ha ha ew. So after winning at bowling (oh yes ;) ) we went onto Fallowfield to Ram & Shackle. Asked for a small white wine and the...
I have the inability
to draw small scale >:(
Going to start drawing my carousel horse so that I can get it tattooed when I get paid. Really craving ink at the moment. I want him to be elaborately decorated but slightly badass too. Maybe armoured. Having the old English proverb “If wishes were horses then beggars would ride” in a ribbon draping around the pole. Exciting. He’s going on my side though. Ouch? I’m...
just, wow. →

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Words cannot explain how stoked I am :) I’ve had such a sweet night. Started off at The Garrett; my fave bar for predrinks then onto my beloved Fac251. It’s quality having one of your best mates working in the box so we all got in for free ;) Really strong turn-out and it was fabulous to see everyone together although I felt like I didn’t get to socialise with everyone equally...
Gonna be centre of attention tonight xo
Really looking forward to this weekend :)
Having a chilled sesh in my old favourite Ram & Shackle in an hour or so with Trudy et al. I miss not seeing her and her rad paintings every day in Art :’( and she goes back to London tomorrow. Sad face. Should be a sweet night though :) used to go every Friday night when I was naughty and under-age ‘cause we used to get in ha. The Hit&Run DJs used to play there every week...
that bit at the end of Four Tet’s Plastic People when there’s that baby talking gibberish and playing with a xylophone and it blends into She Just Likes To Fight which is my favourite off the album. Makes me so happy :) xo
Tomorrow after work
I need to get a sketchbook or two and dye my hair AGAIN.
served Boycie from Only Fools and Horses at work today.
sub-woofer when you’ve been awake 2 mins is not acceptable.
WHY YOU SO HARD TO DRAW?!
Went out for Jade’s birthday last night to a ‘Pop’ club night at AXM. If you know me you’ll know that although my musical taste is incredibly eclectic, I can’t be arsed with the majority of popular mainstream music. But when it’s your mate’s special day you put aside your preferences and you stop moaning and smile. Not gonna lie though that DJ was awful....
