Friends With You Luckies/Postal Disappointment

12 05 2009

Well, the post has been and gone, one package arrived out of the 4 that were due today, which was a little disappointing to say the least! The Luckies brought to me however, were a small ray of light. The packaging is really nice, bright, colourful and coated in the weird characters FWY do so well. I have to question the price of these, especially when you consider how tiny they are, they’re not really unlike something you would expect to get out of a capsule machine for £1 (and these retail at £2.99 over here in the UK), though I guess I knew how small they were before I bought them, the characters draw me in every time. I love the range of different ones available here, but due to the price I just can’t bring myself to buy more, as much as I appreciate the designs. Here’s hoping tomorrow brings a few more deliveries.

Royal Mail are my friends, also my enemies. The fiends.

11 05 2009

I don’t have a highly eventful life, I tend to spend a lot of time behind a desk, typing, or painting. So when I have post on the way, it’s often the highlight of the week for me. Royal Mail bring me goodies to brighten up my day, sometimes they don’t. It’s a little weird, but generally they provide a staggering service, with post being sent before 5 pm, being delivered across the country by 10 am the next morning. I find it a little weird however that lately items sent recorded delivery have been taking a day longer to arrive. Waiting for a package of delight that never arrives is an utterly devastating experience, okay so I exaggerate slightly. But it does bother me.

I have just got the vinyl bug again and picked up the first few bits for my collection I’ve bought for months! I have to be honest and say of late, there just hasn’t been any releases I liked. Looks like things are picking up! I don’t know if the recession based doom and gloom was creating a barrage of uninspiring releases, or if the thought of financial ruin made toys a little less appealing… Either way, I have the feeling back that I used to have, like a new purchase brings a new ray of sunshine into my life. It’s the perfect way of brightening up an otherwise miserable day. I’ve felt for a while now that many things are missing from my life, here’s hoping that I can pick things up and get back on my feet. I used to enjoy cooking for a partner, but since we have parted ways, it’s a little weird that I don’t have someone to try out my culinary skills on, creating a full on meal just for myself doesn’t feel very rewarding at all. I can’t wait until I feel completely happy again. Coffee just doesn’t cut it anymore!

Really enjoying Ian Brown tonight! Music is my friend..
