More about the Now

Thanks to my dear friend Avgousta (check out her blog) I have got myself a job in Bristol. I am now the 'Design, Effects and Schedule Coordinator' for kids TV animation Chuggington. Just in case you were wondering my favourite train is Hodge.
I've been going back to London at the weekends, so I have become extremely familiar with the National Express, oh what a smorgasboard of cacophonic noise and diseases, it does amuse me though, so many different characters, my favourite being a coach driver called Gadget, a black belt and with a life story as long as your arm. For a while he was an Inspector and was known as Inspector Gadget, chortle-Genius!

I don't move into my flat till the 1st feb so I have been crashing at my pal Av's house which is conviently near work.
Av is fighting the good fight for the Polar bears!

Thank You Av, for letting me stay! :)

Between Then and Now

Between then (graduation) and now (job), I have kept myself busy. This blog gives u a rough idea.
Me and my DOP decided we would become a far it's just conceptual we haven't had band practise or anything but Andy says all you need is three chords and the truth and I definately know three chords on my ukulele. So far the only truth I have written a song about is my infamous song that I'm not allowed to sing round the house anymore which is 'Bookshops of Brixton' which fundamently establishes that there is only one. But I am confident in our combined talent, just got to wait till he graduates then world watch out!
This is a nice coffee shop near stockwell called Cafe Nile...I say nice because they do a good cappucino and I'm alll about the cappucino..I say nice but it can get a tad rough outside being tucked in the armpit of an estate, but inside, a veritable oasis.
This is a picture I drew of an old man and his routine.

My Sis and Me

This is me and my sis, I am the grumpy dinosaur and she is the fashion concious babbling pigeon.
 I love my sis, like the rest of my family she's creative and eccentric and very clever, a veritable encyclopedia of information.
Needless to say she has set up an organisiation to protect and preserve murals, her latest obsession:
London Mural Preservation Society

Post Post Graduate Hols

So after I graduated from my MA, my mum as a lovely gift, paid for me and boyfriend to go and stay in the Isle of Wight as a well earned rest.
My mum grew up there and my granny, aunties, uncles and cousins live there and every year since I was little we'd go to visit.
I still passionately love the sea and insist at least once a year we go visit the seaside.
I absoloutley love the Isle of Wight. From the catamaran to the little villages and the tiny tube that only goes 6 stops across the island.

My granny now lives in Sandown but used to live in Wroxhall which I used to always confuse with Vauxhall.Wroxhall is a tiny village nearer the heart of the island, I have fond memories of my grandma's house and my grandpa who was a silly gramps and would always call me Hannah wing tong and sing "my eyes are dim I cannot see I have not got my specs with meeeeee" Lovely gramps :)

Hmmm, I think it's about time I went to the seaside....
