Thats sooo TAFE
SO I am happy to have fashion design behind me now, but I wanted to go to the students end of year show at my old college. The show hasn’t changed for 20 years, Lazers and a big black runway is
dated as fuck, but thats what you get for a old queen as a head teacher.
I took some shots, these are my favourite.

I feel a little whole again after getting our bikes back. I suddenly don’t miss London as much.
uncomfortable amongst comfort
Being home is a little brain fucking, I dont hate this place, I have a cool family, super environs and more comfort then i’ve had for a long time, but I get a very slow moving and all consuming slow fog that comes and changes me, I get all anxious, nervous and embarrassed for being not like the others that are in my life here. I want to go to parties! but not in clothing I had to borrow from my mum to make myself subtable. I just want to wear what I wore when I turned up on my bike and they want me to be a little nicer then I actually am then I get all thrown off. I miss going to a party last minute in the clothes that I wore when I decided to go.
I love them all the same, I love our differences and we know the reasons we love eachother but those situations aren’t them. I suppose it is kinda funny and it doesn’t really matter in the end but I found such comfort in London that all this discomfort is discomforting.
The London Courier Emergency Fund calendar will be coming out pretty soon, these are the photos of me that were chosen for the our month.
If you want to get a calendar all to yourself then you can order one I will post the link when they come out. All proceeds go to the LCEF.
I’ve been in east coast Canada for a month and a half and it’s been awesome.
I’ve also been staying with Dan’s parents for a month and a half and its been…interesting.
I can safely say that we are not getting along. Dan and I rode to a little cabin by the sea to get out of every bodies hair and it was perf.
We pumped up the tires of a tandem bike that we thought was fixed gear, but it actually just turned out to be just rust stuck. We got it moving and without any breaks we really got it moving.
Bloggy blog blog
Fuck it. I’m Back, pleasant blogging is boring sometimes, I need to swear and show my titties without everyone moaning about it.
For those followers who are interested.
I’m moving from London and cycling a butt load of the world. This blog was about daily life in London and I would like to keep it that way. I wasn’t very comprehensive but it can remain as it has always been.
My boyfriend and I have bigger dreams now and you can catch us both on …….
We even paid for the theme, so you know its serious.
We have 3 weeks of London left.
Hope to see you there. xxx
One of my favourite….
Gordie…..Advertising last nights Alley Cat.
My Bambi, looking smashing..
Friday night, at Leather Lane, coming together to shake off the weeks legs… A short Alley Cat, Bambi came first and I forth out of the safety freaks who used breaks..
I had a good week actually, still relishing in the 2 weeks I had off, and the sun continuing to scare the English.
Our controllers father passed away and as a result we had a few days of guest controlling. I have my controllers voice in my ear all day, I have come accustomed to his moods and his jokes, his reactions and how he speaks to other riders, and whether he likes them or not. He is transparent in this way.
I am the only girl on our circuit, so my distinctive voice calling 442 over the radio makes me less forgotten amongst the men. I also do tend to curl the men in the office when I have visits there. Not with my sexuality but with my smile and happiness and hello’s to all the guys sitting on their computers, either working or playing online poker. I never pout, I never grouch, I never complain, which is so common in the courier world that it nearly always gets a comment of pleasure.
This is my trick. I don’t choose to highlight my tits and arse which it would be so easily done. It is done naturally enough I think just being young female in a male office, but to remain a constant, reliable human, who might not be the fastest or the cleverest on the road but i know I am one of the easiest to deal with. Yes to everything, and clean, simple questions and answers.
Too often I hear my temperamental controller blasting a fellow rider for not answering the simple questions directly enough. Such as ‘where exactly are you?’ or ‘how many parcels have they given you?’ then followed by a very agitated ‘IT”S A VERY SIMPLE QUESTION, WHAT DONT YOU UNDERSTAND?’
Each week I hear my two controllers gossiping in code about what the latest drama was with one of the riders and who they have fired this week, but I remain untouched by the frustration and I continue on my own little way without any drama’s.
This doesn’t work in my favour when I am frustrated and annoyed with the days work, or I have urges to tell them to go ‘fuck themselves’, and I have to wait till I walk in the door to lay it all on my boyfriend. It does create a mood to the home.
But it works in my favour when I really do need to have time off or early days or when they feel kind and give me excellent jobs and a early days end.
This weeks new controllers drove me mental. Jobs without cohesion and days without ends, 10-11 hour days that wouldn’t end until I put a stop to it, which I never do, I always am sent home rather then requesting to go home. Jobs that sent me zigzagging over the city in an unbearable mess. Sure I finished with more jobs then usual but as the price of the others finishing with less. I wish for all of us to have the same pay package more of less, but as I went home with an exhausted 38 jobs others when home with barely 20.
We have 5 weeks left here in London. We have plans to give all our things away to the community of Cable Street Studios. Send the Important things back to our families and set the hell off.
