I finally know whats going on uni wise- looks like I'm back on another placement full time :( very very angry about this but at least I know what I'm doing now; and my tutor has arranged that if i get everything done super quick I can cut my placement short. Now all I have to do is sort out funding and I'm back on a ward as a student nurse (which although is a bit of a pain in the bum- I am looking forward too).
It seems like stress brings out my DIY skills as I finally got round to turning a pair of old jeans into shorts for the summer.
They were incredibly simple to make! So here is what I done (in case you wanted to do the same).
I simply mixed 1 part normal bleach too 3 parts with water (I used quite thick bleach so I watered it down well to make it soak through evenly), hung the jeans in the solution upside down for a few hours (don't worry the bubbles did disappear), than left the jeans to soak in baking powder and water for an hour (to neutralise the bleach- otherwise the bleach will continue activating with the fabric and the best result would be lighter colours, the worse the fabric will start falling apart), then put them through a wash in the washing machine.
The Using fabric pens (as they leave a nice clear mark) I measure where i wanted the shorts too go and cut them. The most difficult part was fraying the edges- it took a while but I gently pulled at the seems with a pin.
My boyfriend suggested to me to encourage the edges to fray I should wash them in a cool wash, so (along with a few other denim pieces) I chucked them into a 30 wash. They look fantastic!
Tights, socks and top: Primark
I don't know how a man with a normal sized head can fit in so much knowledge! He's an absolute genius and knows how to make me happy. Not once did he try to take over the whole time I was making these (or any other DIY) until I needed his help which he gave without me even asking.
I don't know any other man that gives me this MASSIVE box of chocolates then eats all the one I don't like (even if hes not really a fan) so I don't accidentally eat the praline ones with bits of nut in them.
Then eats all the strawberry creams (his favourite) only after I say that I don't want them- such self control, Much more then I have.
What is everyones favourite/ least favourite chocolate? And what does everyone think of the shortss?
