Well aren’t I having a fantastic month!
Nonono, that wasn’t sarcasm!
Monday 19th April was my birthday! I didn’t like being 23 due to it being a ‘weak number’ but 24 is a strong number so I’m happy even though I’m getting older. I had a really lovely day. I spent a lot of time relaxing in the sunshine. I also got to spend a lot of time with loved ones and then ate my birthday dinner (not forgetting an amazing chocolate cake).
Also this week I managed to get a lot of work done at the foundry! I finished one of my sculptures and can now get on with casting it!
Things with my benefits have FINALLY worked out. The hold up was thanks to Brighton not transferring my claim LIKE THEY SAID THEY WOULD but after filling in ANOTHER form and making even more phonecalls the £840 they owed me have come through. Now I am very close to being clear of all my debts! And clear of all debts with interest. Hurrah!
Next step: Self-employment.
This month, after an invite over to Wales, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the most amazing bipeds ever. We seemed to hit it off immediately and we’ve fit in visits as much as possible over the past few weeks (in Wales and here in Kent). I’ve been having an absolutely wonderful time at Cardiff Castle, eating sushi, lazing around in parks, making pigeon friends in London, having times of joint nerdiness and meeting up with friends. He makes me incredibly happy (and, yeah, I make myself vomit due to the cheesiness too)!
What started off as a bad year has now completely turned around and my life is back on track into something more fantastic than I could have ever dreamt of. I’m a very happy (and smug) mermaid.
