So today I stayed in, skyped my Mam for ages and tried to get back into the swing of things.

I think I am feeling better, it is helped that I was surrounded by people all day and of course my Mam brightens every day! I told M that I was feeling bad… she said that she is sure that everything will be fine. The way that she said it made me think that she has never had the depression thing before.

I have decided to go along with my plans to go to Vancouver tomorrow (even though Mam didn’t want me to) and to see how things go. It is only for one night; two days so I figure things can’t get too bad. I am hoping that there is a DVD player in the room so I can watch Father Ted. This always makes me laugh! Continue reading

So tonight

I am GOING OUT! So excited! I have a bed booked in a hostel in the centre of town and I am going with some girls in a similar situation to me that I met on the internet. M can’t go because she has to work (which sucks) but hell I am excited.

It is going to be my first time staying in a non-private roomed hostel but I am sure it will be fine… girls only! So today I Skyped my Mam and now I am going to take it easy. I may go for a bit of a walk around the neighbourhood (purely so my stomach looks flat in my dress tonight) and then I have to start all my night out prep.

Yesterday I managed to find Irish butter and my Father Ted DVD arrived so I was delighted with myself. So after a bit of a shit day it ended well.


Today is a lazy day… a bit like Monday was too. But it gives me the chance to Skype Mam; otherwise the time difference is off.

Yesterday I had a really enjoyable day though. I went to SAM and saw the exhibits they had on. There was a really interesting one by a Nick Cave.

Now. Upon arrival I was convinced that the Nick Cave in question was that of Bad Seeds origin and I could barely contain my excitement. But alas, it wasn’t to be. Instead it was another, equally talented Nick Cave. The exhibit was exquisite, the amount of work that goes into his textiles creations was epic.

I then ended up in Pike Place Market(how I got there I do not know)  where I went into a lovely French Bakery – the name of it evades me – and had a brie baguette and chocolate macaroons. AMAZING. Last week while I was in the market I had a pastry-type thing from a Russian shop called Piroshky-Piroshky the queue for the place is a mile long but well worth it. I had the potato, onion and cheese one. Continue reading
