sad girls and wet afternoons

'Travelling Man' in Leeds have sold all my 'zines, had the chance to pop in today and walked out with £6.50 for the trouble. Think I may try the York branch with some new work but main distribution these days is in the US of A, with little paper planes and also another shop, in the Midwest, interested in my work.

I'm not sure whether or not this blog should be photographs only or my written ramblings as well. I had half thought of changing things around early in the New Year, but now it just feels like I'm jumping on the bandwagon of change and false hope this time of year brings.
I'm feeling lonely this evening. We've just spent two days with my family having a good Christmas and today, we drove back to York, Katherine went to work and I'm left alone. I never thought I would ever have this problem. Loner is a strong word but through my teenage years I always enjoyed my own company. I had friends, I left the house, I had hobbies but I was never bothered about being by myself. Now, everything has changed.
Sometimes I feel as if I'm just passing time when I'm alone and nothing constructive happens.
This year I got what I asked for at Christmas, which basically consisted of time off work and time with family and friends. Also the presents I was bought were great and showed me that the people around me know me and care for me.

I don't think much will change. I'm not sure what 2008 will bring but I know whatever happens, I'll have to work to get it, nothing comes easy.
I wish everyone who reads this all the luck in the world for the New Year.

This week I have worked five straight days, from 5:30am for at least eight hours. I realise that this blog wasn't exactly created for me to write about work but that is the thing that is putting my creative actions on hold, so that is what gets written about.
As you can probably imagine Christmas is a very, very busy time of year to be a postman. It's not that really but it doesn't leave much time for anything else, therefore shopping has been very difficult but I think I'm just about all done. Yesterday we found out that Katherine has to work on Christmas Day, which isn't an ideal scenario. We'll make the best of it as usual.

The days of printing my own work again could be one step closer after today,

Fingers crossed.
