The adventures of Charles the unimpressed robot

Just a quick one today. A couple of my doodles recently.

Charles made a friend.

Lot’s of friends!
 
Drawing is very therapeutic for me at the moment, especially with work being hectic. I missed drawing, I used to always be doodling while I was at school (usually during lessons!).
 
What is your therapy?

My week 10

A much better week I’m glad to say.

myweek10

*Went to Sheffield on Saturday to see my mum and do some shopping at Meadowhall. May have bought a couple of things including a certain blouse I blogged about the other day. 
 
*We went to Rice for lunch which was really fun. I’ve never been before and my mums always up for trying new food so we went. 
 
*I had the mongolian lamb with ginger, rice and veggies. Was very tasty!
 
*Axl stretching out across my bed. He’s a grumpy man but can be very cuddly at times.
 
*My mum got to meet my baby (my Alexa).
 
*My outfit I wore (new shirt bought yesterday) to the cinema today to see Safe House. I rather liked it. Was a man film with shooting but also actually had a plot. 
 
*Rose giving me the “Who you taking photos, just pet me woman!” look.
 
I also booked my plans for next weekend for Claire’s birthday. Looking forward to it – a mini road trip, a travelodge and paying to get scared in the woods (yes seriously!).

Sports Relief 2012!

So, Sports Relief is coming up and I’m definitely going to run one of the miles. I did the 1 mile run in Manchester 2 years ago and had a blast. Of course me loving fancy dress, I decided to wear something outrageous since it was for charity. I went as Scooby Doo which was a big thing for me as I don’t really like drawing too much attention to myself! My friend Claire ran with me and she was a banana.

It was really fun and for a great cause so I’m really looking forward to doing it again this year. I really hate running but I did the 1 mile with no problem so I think I’m going to push it this year and do 3 miles. The bf said he’ll do it with me. And of course I really need to top my Scooby Doo costume with something more outrageous. Found a few ideas:

Maybe I can get the bf to be Tweety? ha ha

I love penguins though it may be difficult to run in.

Not what I was after but pretty cute!
 
Think I’ll have to have a browse in the costume shops in Manchester. 
 
Any ideas? Are you going to take part in Sports Relief?

My Week 9

Oh my this was a horrible week. As are the photos – my apologies. I really didn’t do much this week apart from have a miserable time at work, then go home to my pit at night. Ok, enough of the negative. Here are the happy pics from this week.

*Ah Rose, how you cheer me up – even when your claws are digging into my stomach. She seemed to take a liking to my belt. I have another photo of her nomming on it 🙂
 
*First time I tried crackle nails (I know, completely behind)
 
*I know you won’t be able to read but this is the most amazing name ever: Bertrum Van Munster. This is on the credits of every The Amazing Race episode ever (this is the best series ever – will have to tell you about it another time)
 
*Happy face earrings are happy
 
*Pretty shoe on my shoe calendar.

My Week 8

A week of pancakes, sketching and a bit of dancing at the end.

*Watched Tea for Two for my upcoming old film style post. Not my favourite Doris Day film, but the style and the title song stuck in my head all week!
*Pancake day was great – I discovered have not lost my superior flipping skills
*Saw a car with the licence plate BFG, had to get a pic.
*Pretty display in a garden centre near my work. Easter is on the way 🙂
*Bit of crappy sketch work but I’m trying to get back into it. I really missed drawing.
*Discovered at work that I should not be allowed near a spreadsheet (lots of crossing out) – shame that is the main focus of my job…damn.
*Little outfit sneak peek. Wearing the necklace I showed here
*This is Charles, my new cartoon. More adventures with him to come up. 
*Discovered a new card game called Flux. This is the Pirate version. Lots of rules, but once you’ve got the hang of them it’s very fun.
*Went out last night and had an awesome time dancing away. Just a pic of us admiring the green light we were stood under.
 
Also in other news, I just found out that the lovely Sparkly Flamingo has awarded me with the Versatile Blogger award. Thank you so much – I’m very proud! 🙂
So apparently I’m supposed to tell you 7 facts about myself? Here it goes then:
 
 
1. I have lived in over 20 houses in my almost 24 years. I think to say that I moved around a lot is an understatement. 
 
2. My idea of a good night is hanging out with friends playing board games. Yes, I’m that girl. 
 
3. I’m a huge (and I mean huge) Harry Potter fan and have been since I was 11. Yes, I’m also that girl. 
 
4. I’m very close to my parents and Skype them pretty much every day I’m home since they live abroad. 
 
5. Any excuse to wear fancy dress, I will take it.
 
6. I don’t like airplane food, but rather enjoy opening up all the little boxes and packets.
 
7. Due to my moving around, I picked up an American accent for a few years. Didn’t even live in America and I’m originally from Yorkshire. *Shakes head*. 
 
 
Thank you again Sparkly Flamingo!
 
So, not sure how many people I’m supposed to award but here are the blogs I think deserve the title:
 
Sorry for such a long post!
