Then, the dressmaking sales assistant informs me, I'll have to sew it onto the costume WITH ALANA IN IT because the braid and diamontes have no stretch, and if I sew it on without Alana in it, the decorations will all fly off as soon as she tries to put the costume on! Fun for all the family.
You'll be pleased to know that I got my uni assignment back yesterday. I was really happy with the mark of 37.5 out of 50 (you must remember that I am doing a Masters degree so they have very high expectations!), but even more so with the comment. Of course there was plenty of constructive criticism, but the bits I liked were:
Your use of the literature is well considered and you provide evidence of deep thought and analysis.
Good luck with your research- you have huge potential to complete this and publish it.
Yay for me!
So, what have you all been up to?
