A little update and an apology for my absence!
Some people may have noticed, though a few might not have noticed at all, that I have been a little absent over the last couple of weeks. Things have been a somewhat hectic over here and I have been doing my best impression of a headless chicken for a sometime so I hope you’ll forgive me for neglecting my little blog in the wake of such circumstances.
I haven’t really posted a personal ‘Here’s what’s going on with me’ post on this site before now but I fancied doing one today just to let you all know what I’ve been up to, let you know that I haven’t forgotten you and promise that the neglect will stop soon.
February was exceedingly busy. I made a few decisions about my future including a potential change of career and some additional study which I am thoroughly looking forward to, I overcame a HR nightmare at work to recruit a new lady who is absolutely lovely is reacting very well to being trained by someone younger and will hopefully stick it out for the longhaul and I had a much deserved week off which I spent curled up a corner of my home with a cat on one side, a bunny on the other and all thoughts of responsibility erased from my mind, now I’m back at work, fighting fit (sort of) and feeling as tired as I would have been had I never had any time off. Such is life on the treadmill.
Last weekend Another Earth Collectables hosted a stall at Geek Central’s Spring Thingy at Brighton’s Komedia, peddling our wares for all to see. Our stock of Funko POP’s is ever growing and now our display is taller than I am! I had a wonderful time in Brighton, spoke to some really interesting people and got to spend a whole day surrounded by the things I love. Next convention is at the end of March in Southampton and I can barely contain my excitement, maybe I’ll see some of you there 🙂
In other news, the lovely ‘thelimitlessimagination’ has just gotten me addicted to an incredibly interesting and entertaining young adult, reverse harem fiction series which has given me sleepless nights because I have been glued to my kindle every spare moment of the day, I’m not sure I can confidently tell you what is reality or what is fiction anymore, all I know is that I have fallen in love with 9 fictional characters and am not expecting to come up for air for a while. 😀 I really can’t thank her enough for the recommendation!
I have also recently rediscovered my love of felt and have been making a few bits (pics to follow) and have started to write letters to people again which is so much fun! (Incidentally, if anyone fancies a penpal let me know, I’d love to write to you :D)
So what is coming over the next few weeks:
I have been on a bit of a review rampage so expect:
- Kimi ni Todoke Review
- Clannad and Clannad After Story review
- Angel Beats – First impression
- 4 new voltage reviews and
- 3 new toy reviews including a particularly awful set of TMNT bootlegs which actually showed up with their legs detached and half-finished paint jobs!
I’ll try to be much more active over the coming weeks and hope you’ll all stick around and let me know what you think 😀
