talk about a total failure. I haven't updated in ages! i'm sorry lovers, life has been busy here in scotland and i just haven't found the time to sit and post an update.
still no response from anon. sadly...but i'm glad all you lovely readers out there enjoyed my response. i know i did. haha
Laura's visit went smashingly, and I will miss her dearly until I see her again. We kept the whole visit pretty chilled...and on friday we went to Pitlochry for some hiking etc, and it was lovely. i'm looking forward to going back when the weather is better. it was rainy for the vast majority of our time in pitlochry..of course i didn't realize that i had an umbrellla in my purse until after the hike was over and laura and i looked like drowned rats. ... she didn't appreciate that.... ooops.
saturday we did a sub pub crawl in her honor, the crowd was smaller than last time, but we had good fun. it was a rangers game and so the cream of the crop of glaswegian society was out a-drinking that saturday and we just so happened to be in the southside of the city when the game was over..aka..it was damn crowded.
then i had a week or so after laura left and then brooke came to visit me from Egypt!! we also had a marvelous visit and we did a lot of sewing. so i have some projects going on of an 1830s cotton dress and a 1780s to 90s jacket. The jacket will be mine, and the 1830s dress for Pollok house, but i will also be using the jacket in the fashion show...which will be marvelous..
i also will have to make a new petticoat, kerchief, neck tucker, elbow ruffles, etc for it. joy joy joy
brooke and i also got our hair cut (finally) mine is the standard, but its so nice to have bangs (ahem fringe) back. ahha
i have an essay due about 16th century costume due in 2 weeks, which will stress me out...but it'll be over soon and so i will be quiet happy about that. then itäs the fashion show and the studen exhibition and wam bam thank you ma'am i'm fini.
then...it's thesis time! eek!!
My personal life is going wonderfully..i've had great friends come for a visit, and also i have been reminded that I have the best boyfriend ever...but i'm not going to get mushy...i promise, nor do i think he would really appreciate me gushing about him on my blog. But i have very exciting news, Fredrik and I are going to go to an 18th century masqurade ball at Kalmar Castle in sweden where he's from! I'm sooooooo excited!! I'll be making our clothing and it should be marvelous. i'm nervous about fitting fredriks clothes, but it should be alright.
we're also planning to go to paris with mom and vicky in may, and then i'll visit sweden for an extended week in june, and then we'll be returning to the usa in july! it should be really great. He's never been, and i'm looking forward to having a big human pillow to sleep on on the flight over and a travel companion.
so that's really it for now... not much else is going on...
oh...i met the "inlaws" this weekend..hehe Fredrik's mom and sister came to visit and they were lovely. The language barrier is frustrating, but after a while and once we were all at a comfort with eachother, it was really enjoyable...plus his mom decided she wanted a red purse...clearly we are going to get along!!! haha :D
