August 6th, 2017
I always say to Felix that time goes by way too fast. I’ve never noticed it as much as this year.
I’ve been meaning to write here on my blog multiple times in the past week, but always ended up finishing my daily amount of work late in the evening, feeling too tired to put some thoughts together.
Here is a collection of failed attempts.
First of all: we got a hedgehog!
His name is Dogy, and as of today, he is 9 weeks old.
He looks like a tiny pig. He loves that blue fish toy.
Felix had been showing me hedgehog videos for a while, suggesting that we would get one. I never really considered it, I never knew if he was serious, knowing that he has little time to spare, but eventually we were both looking up info about them, and getting one seemed doable.
We contacted multiple people looking to re-home their hedgehogs, but pretty soon we learnt that they all go quite quickly, in a matter of hours.
Last Saturday we saw that there were just a couple left for sale in Birmingham, and so we went for a 7 hour drive to pick Dogy up.
The following days went by fast, as I was driving to different pet shops to get Dogy a new cage, better food, a big wheel, a playpen, toys…
And then Thursday came. I had been invited to the Gudetama Launch in London, and so Felix and I hopped on the train to spend an egg-cellent evening meeting some really cool people.
I was introduced to the Sanrio team, and I was also given a tour of their office.
I ended up speaking to lots of people and had little time to film around, so my original idea of blogging and vlogging had to be scrapped.
At this point, on Friday, I felt like I needed to get back here as too much time was passing by, but on the same day I had to come up with a video idea, film and edit it.
I ended up trying to make a smoothie recipe for the blog, but realised it was far too simple to post. So that’s another idea that didn’t cut it.
Oh, and my camera completely broke. Not sure what happened, but this is how the screen froze. I removed the battery, fully charged it, hoping it was a glitch… but it wasn’t. It’s gone. So that’s something I will need to take care of tomorrow.
Also this laptop I’m currently typing on is dying on me as well, so I will have to fix this too.
Everything happens at once, it seems.
Yesterday it was supposed to be a sunny day, and since Felix and I spend Saturdays together, we decided to drive to Camber Sands, which is less than 2 hours away.
The weather was very windy, and kept switching from rainy to sunny to rainy, but the beach was stunning, as usual.
Edgar and Maya love it there, and I do as well. The beach is so open and peaceful.
Look at all these cute houses!
I actually recorded some clips, so I may edit a video, but if I don’t have enough, I may not upload it. Will see. I never know these days, haha.
Anyway, that’s about it for this week. The vast majority of my time went into developing the different projects I’m working on, and the best progress we have made is regarding the winter clothing line: all the fabrics have been selected, and we managed to bring down the price (originally it was going to be very expensive); I’ve also changed the theme of the line, so it won’t be bees anymore, and all the designs are finished, so we are currently going onto the sampling phase!
Sorry that I haven’t been able to reply to your comments, just know that I always appreciate seeing you here.
How is August going for you, so far?
