Busy Bee

All systems are go with my Primark placement. I've had my timetable and its just boosted my excitement! I've been allocated time with every head of department within the buying team and it's beeing treated as a teaching experience than actual work. I'll be given tests and classes on how they use certain systems. Thankfully I have experience working with some of the software they have described so I hopefully won't be too useless.

On a side note, this weekend brings us December 1st! For some this means the start of Christmas shopping, putting the decs up and opening that first door of your advent calendar. For me, it means super cute and silly graphic prints!

I love this little guy and his socks!
An advent calendar for those post christmas shopping nights!

Appologies yet again

I really should try harder to keep my blog up to date. I'm useless, I know! So, whats the news. Well I have a work placement organised and I am very, very, VERY excited about it! It is now confirmed that I shall be working along side the women's accessories buying team for Primark. It's only a short term thing and then I shall be moving onto another placement short after to work with the merchandising team. I can't wait!

Not only that but my graduation is organised, tickets bought and gown hire confirmed, I have a feeling that I'm looking forward to it more than I am about Christmas! All I keep thinking is "new shoes, new dress...oh in fact two new dresses! A big reunion with all of my friends that I haven't been able to see in a long time". I'm like a child all over again :D

Not only that, but the knitting will be kick started again! I promise it will be a little more than mug huggers, and I'm feeling something slightly glitzy and glam as its coming up for the party season, so any suggestions, please feel free to drop a comment. I don't bite,  I promise :)

I'm sorry it has been a while an this is unrelated to knitting but I'm taking part in Movember this year and need to help in spreading the word and getting donations.

It's all about raising awareness for men's health. There are plenty of events for breast cancer awareness and I feel that not enough is done for guys, so I joined up.

Movember is a month many men dedicate themselves to but growing (in some cases attempting to grow) a gentlemanly moustache, and ggetting sponsored to do so. I know I cannot grow any magnificent facial hair, but I'm there in spirit as a Mo Sista.

If you could take a look at my page and spread the word, I would be very greatful. And a donation here and there would be just fantastic. I'll be joining in by updating my page with moustache related fashion and trends that I come across to keep you entertained.
