So far this week my washing machine has been "condemned", my journey to bristol for a long weekend away is looking decidedly dodgy due to strike action by RMT staff (solidarity), and I've received a planning notice because some opportunistic rentier wants to stick a 3-bed house in (figuratively) my back yard.

Anyone tried this? Did it work? Did it lead to masses of junk mail?

In a few weeks I will no longer be here, but will be there instead. There is two blocks away in the right direction, at the other end (also the right direction), and one floor up. I hope it's as nice as I (very vaguely now) remember. I'm glad I will soon be rid of the uncertainty and the embarrassingly unprofessional estate agents that comes of somebody else putting your home up for sale. I hope it doesn't happen again for a long time. But I'm not enjoying the thought of the next few weeks.


Anybody who can, watch this. Made me proud to be a woman from essex.

Well this year is turning out to be my most exciting yet - two lifetime firsts all but sewn up already - see a doctor, see a solicitor - and I didn't even make any new years resolutions!

having to show people around the flat you live in and want to stay in and in their heads and their words they already own it is a sh!tty experience.

Aw shucks. Four years wasn't nearly enough, and I just know I'm not gonna find another place like this any time soon.

Yeah, ain't the market f!cking great.
Went to see Drawn by Light a couple of weeks ago. There's a photo, taken by someone I can't remember, of some steps, and the blurb describes how he went back to the same steps many times over many years, trying to get the right shot. And I thought, I don't have that dedication.

A few weeks before that, I'd got all excited with my camera over Tate Britain's new staircase and the connecting passageways and stairwells. The results are rather different to all of these - unintentional, but inevitable. I'm used to taking photos outside in daylight. I don't think I changed settings when I stepped through Tate's doors. Hence, they're dark. However I'm immensely proud of the quality of the framing etc; I now need to work on taking photos indoors without affecting the light quality, and then I need to go back.
