I've recently come to realise that I need some sort of counselling because things just haven't been so good for me lately. Dan broke up with me earlier this week and it's been pretty hard coming to terms with it all. I've finally realised that there are some heavy things I need to sort through regarding relationships and I think it's going to be a long road ahead to finally get some help with it all.

This is just a close up of the same crochet tunic which I laid out on my dining table.
My very retro looking shawl hanging over my bedroom door - this only cost me about $3 to make!
And now some projects in the making...
This one's going to be a sleeveless top - I still need to get some constrasting wool to work around the outer edges so it looks a little more polished and complete the front side of it.
My cat likes to curl up next to my crochet - this one that I started a couple of days ago is going to be in a similar style to the sleeveless top but I'm going to add some afgan squares at the bottom and turn it into a sleeveless waistcoat.
More updates on these as I finish them.
Lately, this week has been a rather peaceful week because the usual supervisor who supervises day in, day out had gone on a holiday. For me, it has meant that my till reinbursements are on time and I don't end up constantly running out of change or having to 'remind' the supervisor about it. It's pretty slack and I have to always stand there waiting, waiting, waiting for my change sometimes for over 45 minutes. I get told by colleagues at work that he forgets but I don't seem to think so. He constantly 'forgets' to give me my change all the time and it seems like he just has a problem with me being at work. That's why I don't get many shifts - I'm only there for less than two full days a week. I'd really like a job as an assistant librarian since that is what I've recently graduated in - I'm qualified to be a librarian and yet, no one wants me because I haven't had any experience. Lol, you try getting experience when you're at uni nearly everyday and only have about 1 day or so to do paid work. As if you'd spend that sole day doing unpaid work experience. It's pretty stupid.
Anyhow... on a nicer note: I went out for dinner last night with my boyfriend. We decided to try a restaurant out at Holdfast Bay area called Lido. It's a fairly upmarket Italian-esque restaurant that specialises in serving Italian food with the inclusion of wild game such as kangaroo and quail. I had an extremely exquisite and decadent meal of roasted quail with pepperonata and potato fritter doused in a balsamic jus. My boyfriend ordered a chicken and mushroom risotto and we both shared an antipasto entree. It was pretty lush and the food was absolutely to die for... you can check out their menu here: http://www.lidoglenelg.com.au/Lido%20Main%20Menu.pdf and the rest of the website at http://www.lidoglenelg.com.au/
