about colour correcting

I had such a busy day at work… It’s amazing how suddenly things can pile up, especially when everyone wants your help. Today it was month’s end, so Finance were frantic to get all the phasing correctly. I had to work closely with one girl in order to get all the figures right for someone else’s work, not mine. You can imagine how long it took us to make sense of what was going on, especially as none of us had seen those figures before! After being at it for one hour on my own, and about another hour with my laptop at her desk, we managed to make sense of it. When I returned to my desk, I checked all those emails I kept seeing popping up while working on the numbers, and the list was endless! For some reason, people from other teams are asking me to be in their out of office whenever they are away, even if we don’t really have much to work in common, they’re copying me in their …

night photography

Hello there! I’m just writing to let you know about my plans for tonight. Why? You must be wondering… Well, tonight I’m going on a photo walk with a group of photography lovers! We’re practising night photography and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Right now I’m not sure how many we’re going to be, four for sure, but maybe six. We’re going to photograph a couple of areas of London, playing with the camera settings and hoping to learn a lot! I’ve never done night photography, so you can imagine how exciting this is. We’re not going to the usual (yet amazing at night) places like Piccadilly, but will portray some equally beautiful areas around the Thames.

It’s the end of the month and I can’t spend money on materials. I’m still crocheting, but I’m growing bored …

projects update

Hello there! I haven’t updated much lately, I know. I could give a million reasons (give or take) but they would all sound as excuses… The main reason is that I haven’t had much time… but also I haven’t been much in the mood. Since I started in my new role (yay!) I’ve been so busy at work, than the last thing I want to do at home is think. Think about what to write, or think about doing stuff. Basically, I’ve been watching series these past days (I know, I know, I should have been writing instead). However, I have taken up on a couple of hobbies… Last Thursday I had my first sewing class, and we did a cushion cover! I think it’s quite pretty! I was very pleased with the result, as I was expecting something horrible and crooked to turn up, but it looks nice. We also did some fabric buttons for the cushion. I was so slow sewing them though that I decided to finish it at home. When I …
