That was a good run of monthly paintings. Glad I got through that w/out any major disturbances this time!
It's December, and as such I have been to 'Edwardian Evening' at the shop, in which I got to dress up in old-style clothes and let customers in our shop at night-time to ramble and have free snacks. It was okay, something different to the norm. So crowded outside though...never seen Okehampton so packed...I reckon there musta been a tip-off from Exeter and hordes must have descended.
I know I don't really have many friends outside the internet but I have had some nice customers talking to me recently, which is good. One of them actually seemed to care about an ailment I briefly mentioned (in Winter when it gets cold I have a circulatory condition with my hands - I guess it's the trade-off I get for not having a cold of any sort in 4 years!) and well, she actually asked about it and talked to me about it and compared it to things her hands did in the cold and- that was nice.
It feels incredibly weird when someone seems to actually sound like they care about me, such is my lack of faith in humans, because people I meet aren't usually ever prone to being kind or caring. I meet too many jerks on a regular basis that my 'shields are up full' when talking to people. Must remain cold & distant to most people because they seem unable to be friendly.
I've put decorations up for x-mas...I'd like to keep the atmosphere going but I'm not sure how much I'm feeling it this year? Probably because I had my first filling and I've gotta stop having sugary foods as often, also I've just missed an opportunity to get a new flat which I swear was the most pleasant one I've seen in Okey so far....got snapped up by someone else just as I was deciding to put a deposit down, argh!
Maybe something better will go on the market in the 1st half of 2015. I am working but still need a 2nd job or an extra day in my current job to be ok in a new flat for a bit.
About to watch Gotham, night all.
