Photo Diary 5#

Today has been a LONG day. An early morning shift at work followed by an intensive stint at uni followed by the worst journey home I've ever had. If you'd seen my twitter earlier I had a rather unpleasant encounter with some of Sheffield's finest. Apparently I'm a posh student twat with a rod up my arse who deserves to have my house burnt down and my head kicked in, because I refuse to talk to two drunk guys on a packed train? It always throws me when I experience people behaving so cowardly / obscenely, perhaps because I'm naive enough to think most people have a) more sense and b) are generally nice. Which, on the whole they are. The rest of the packed bus leapt to my rescue anyway, including the loveliest older lady who came and sat next to me when I was on the verge of tears. Either way, thankyou everyone for your kind words on twitter, if only I had my army with me on the bus eh! ♥  

Anyway. Not in much of a state to write anything constructive so tonight, though I promised to reward you lovely lot with a giveaway, it can wait until tomorrow. I have energy enough to type up some captions to the below images of a photo diary I've been compiling for a while.

1. Getting my leather on in Liverpool / a Wondrous Place in the city museum
2. Chillaxing in Bungalows and Bears, Sheffield
3. Pipe dream research courtesy of an Amazon voucher from the Fairy Hobmother
4. Sunrise over Sheffield, what a beautiful morning
5. A view cosmos later, with my gorgeous housemate Jess
6. Sampling the local veggie cuisine in Egg, Liverpool

  2. Such wonderful photos. So sorry to hear about you horrible experience on the bus. Sadly some people enjoy making other people's life a misery, and those people aren't worth a second thought. They're probably just reflecting their own insecurities onto others.

    Hope you're okay anyhoo!!

  3. What a horrible experience, that sort of thing would've left me really shaken too! It's absolutely uncalled for!! Glad people rose to your defence at least. And your photos are lovely, I love the one with the shadows on the wall. xx

  9. Urghh what horrible toads! The combination of drunk dickheads + public transport is never a good one. Bless the old lady who came to comfort you though! Sometimes the best thing to come out of a situation like that is that it shows you how nice some people are.

    Ahh Bungalows & Bears! I love that place ♥

    I find your pipe dream research adorable for some reason! I think it would be awesome if you opened a coffee shop :)

  11. Oh Claire, I can't believe that happened- it sounds awful, but thank goodness people were quick to offer some consolation/protection. Big hugs!
    Loving the look of your coffeeshop dream, I'd be there for sure! x

  12. Hey lovely. I really do hate situations like the one you found yourself in, it’s happened to me before and it really is unpleasant. I just hope you’re okay now.

    p.s I love Bungalows and Bears, the setting is so lovely, always one of my faves xxx

  13. Gorgeous photos! No one should have to go what you went through ): Earlier this year something similar happened to me on my train to college and the police had to be involved as they guys were students too. I didn't even know them and it scares and disgusts me that total strangers think they can take advantage of women ): I hope you're feeling better now ♥ x

  14. Spooky, I was literally sat in that seat in Bungalows and Bears on Tuesday thinking what a good picture that neon sign would make! haha

  15. Oh goodness, I can't believe people sometimes. But just when you think all humans are awful those other people (like the older lady on your bus) restore your fate! Lovely photo's I love your outfit in the top one :)

  16. i think most people can relate to your story, it's horrible. i get the commuter train to work and seem to avoid stuff like that, it's later at night it all kicks off. nice people rule.

    hmm i think i need to dust off my lomo

  17. Claire this is actually horrible! I am shocked!

    I'm always surprised when things like this happen, and I always find it very upsetting, but I guess like you said, it kind of restores your faith in people too, which is a bit backwards.

    Hope you're ok. Xxxxx
