MMM ’14

Taking up the challenge again this year and upping the ante by aiming higher than last time. Here I pledge to MMM14:

‘I Sophie of milky&rosie blog, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’14. I endeavour to wear at least one handmade and one secondhand garment each day for the duration of May 2014′.

What the heck am I talking about you may ask?

Looking back.

Thursday just past marked the end of my first year in London. 

No longer ‘new’ but not yet a local.

Currently commuting 3 hrs a day to/from work took me back to Western Australia where it could take me the better part of a day to get from home to work.

Things I miss working in WA:

longs drives in the bush with good music

the space. the landscape. the vastness. 

better pay

Things I don’t miss

the heat


the heat

the isolation

did I mention the heat?
