Hiya, Mellie here, it’s been a funny ol’ time here really.
It’s all been going well, we found and moved into our house, we’ve joined a kayak club & been kayaking, we now have a car, the dog is all sorted to come over in July, the bad news is our shipment now isn’t arriving for about another month which is pants and means we’re sort of in limbo for a bit living from suitcases still.
Steve has been working really hard already getting up at 6am and commuting back home from the city in the evening, but I am not working I’ve been rattling around this empty house. I’ve started thinking now we’re here and settled about my new project and what I am going to be working on for the next 4 years at least.
I have been taking photos and I’ve ordered some Dayler & Rowney designer gouache paints in CMYK colours to start off with some sketchbook work. I used these at Uni to mix up colours and loved the velvety feel of them and the opaque & bright colour quality so I’m looking forward to having a play with those.
I sooo enjoyed cruising here on the hybrid we hired, it got me thinking that a bike specifically for cruising to the beach and the shops would be perfect. I always thought it daft to have one in Pembrokeshire with all the hills but here with the miles of coastline, hundreds of bike paths, the laid back nature of Perth a nice flat ol’ jaunt into Fremantle will be great. I’m still figuring out things like back brakes and flat foot technology but I have narrowed it down and sometime between saving up for one of these and taking a few for a test ride I will look forward to owning something like this Electra.
- One of the first things I was going to do here was go to a Pilates class, well I haven’t quite got round to that, I have found a couple who I have contacted but I may have to do some saving first and in the meantime I have two whole rooms at least in our house right now and with a camping mat and some iPod music I’ve had some great Pilates sessions on my own so that will suffice for now.
This morning my Steve went off the the airport for a work trip so getting stuck into a new project is going to really help me over the next month until the shipment arrives and whilst Steve is working. Ok I’m off to make myself some pasta now and then off to bed early so I can get up with the birds and go for a jog around the block in the morning.
See you soon xx
