Buns. And biscuits. Bagels. And cookies.
In multiple ovens.
I’ve been so MIAB!
This here cat has been Missing In A Bakery! Yes, I got a job and it’s at a busy, big kosher bakery and shop. Ain’t that fun?
Well, it is. But it’s also quite intense – I’ve been working 10hours a day every day except Shabbat and setting my alarm for 4am. Whoever said that counts as morning shifts was bat-shift crazy. When you leave home when it’s utterly dark, the cows are still asleep on either side of the road and not even the milkman is working, that ain’t morning.
But I’ve so missed blogging, I can’t even believe it – which I’m actually glad of, I’ve come to appreciate the blogosphere and posting, even more so than when I was stuck in bed with my broken metatarsal! Speaking of, for the first two weeks of work the left, unbroken side of my body hurt and ached and just wanted sleep, but the right side and my right leg was a whole other story. Jeez, what a few months of confinement can do to muscles.
The first day, when I got home, I sat down for 15 minutes and I just couldn’t get up, you know? When I was working and learning and doing my best, it was alright, but when I stayed still for a moment my body just said ‘no more. I’m out.
On the plus side, I’ve been on a diet solely comprised of bagels and salmon.
Anyway, I’m so looking forward to my blog reading binge, which I neatly planned and tucked away for a day off :) I missed my favourite blogs so damn much. Can’t wait. And I missed COLOURS and crazy patterns, I haven’t even seen all the awesome Valentine’s Day manis, looking forward to these, like, a lot.
I miss posting too, and I’ve attempted to compose posts many times, as I’ve been quite inspired actually, but I literally fall asleep while writing I’m so knackered. It’s unbelievable. Glasses on, INTERESTING book in hand and I just pass out I’m so tired.
I have a few interesting clawy things in my vault, too – I got me a yellow and white gold foil top coat which I’ve been seriously loving; a lovely package from faketattoos.se and I’ve already tried them out in one mani, but I’m holding out before posting, so I have a few manicures to show you.
Been stamping, been painting, been working and been trying to catch enough sleep so as not to collapse over trays of poppy hamentaschen.
My birthday giveaway has not been forgotten either, and the 2nd bundle, international is going to Sonya, yay! – I sent you an email, darling.
This blue mani (my second favourite colour, and the light blue, Inglot 309, is also my 2nd favourite nail colour ever :), just FYI) is awesome to wear, and a great pick you up.
I was only just passing by a mirror and something caught my eye – it was the accent nail – that dark blue and silver geometric pattern just jumps at ya (an untried: Sinful Colors Ciao Bella – very nice indeed, and a pleasure to apply, 2 coats, 1 would do too).
So, how are you all? Are you baking things, are you making things or are you working? I hope y’all are at least painting your nails ; ))
PS Happy Purim! Chag Purim Sameach!
Did anyone dress up for Purim? Let me know!
