I've been using up a big wad of printer paper with felt tip drawings and trying out a set of colourful biros. It's all happening over here! I also used my very last mini post it note (what an event!) and drew a sad green moon (try listening to this song whilst looking at sad moons). I've been enjoying pigtails a lot recently too, so I had to include a picture of me enjoying wearing pigtails in this post. Please enjoy the picture of me enjoying wearing pigtails. And the other things.
This week has been pretty nice and full of crumpets. I am finally actually re-watching Twin Peaks and I am currently 5 episodes in. I'm having an assessment show this week (opening on Thursday), then it's my birthday on Sunday, and Elliot is interviewing for a slightly less part time version of his job next Tuesday, so it's quite an eventful one! I've already received some pretty snazzy birthday presents, including a cat lunch bag and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bath fizzer.
I'm posting these diary pages as double page spreads because I don't think they look quite right as single pages. This does mean the text is too small though, so please do zoom in to read them! I made a little vlog on Thursday as well, so please enjoy that below.
Ok so here's a fun update with some recent drawings and pictures from my phone. I made the collage above with biscuit wrappers because I thought the foil was cute. Brown paper is cuter though! The moon looks pretty good in foil.
I'm drawing more pigtails lately. Pigtail club 2015. Also a lot of stripy socks and little birds.
I don't know how I manage to look so different in photos depending on whether I am taking them or not. How does this happen? Why does this happen?
This is a true margin doodle, and extremely Animal Crossing influenced. I just love those mayor designs!
A little person inside a big heart.
This picture is just me trying to remind myself what smiling with teeth looks like in photos. I find that if I don't take photos of myself I kinda forget what I look like. It's always odd to think about, but it's really easy to forget what you look like, even if you look in a mirror a lot!
I woke up one day to find these rings had been left on my arms by three mischievous hair bands I'd worn overnight.
This was me trying gauge whether the Buffy the Vampire Slayer wispy tendrils of hair look is something I can work with. So much of the styling in that show has a really perfect effortless/cute-in-a-practical way teen vibe which I like a lot.
Also the sun was doing some excellent shining at this moment (see below).
Recent events in Boy: a haircut, some redecorating, and twinned towns.
First of all, I've rearranged my living room into a nice and neat ice cave. I'm putting as much green furniture in here as possible too, with a nice alternative deep green colour. Here I am above, watching Mac as he checks up on my interior.
This is the plot of my tenth and final villager for the moment, a lazy penguin named Puck. He has already donned a 1D t-shirt, so he's adjusting well to life in Boy.
Some mayors are just rude.
Some mayors wave fish in my face all the time.
Some mayors get to have their towns twinned with Boy. I built this cool sign that says so. I'm thinking of adding a dream address when Sausage gets one. I love Sausage.
Berry has also been decorating. All One Direction albums are up on the walls, and there are some skillful paintings displayed too.
A few snowmen have caught a glimpse of '?' wandering about all in white. Mysterious.
Not sure this is appropriate barista attire, but I do what I want. It helps me to concentrate on my coffee making. All my thoughts are contained in the knitted peak.
I'm Charlie Dimmock.
Me and Agnes chilling out. She's a pretty cool pig. Stumps are where I get all my great ideas. We're thinking of starting a ska duo.
I decided to change my hair a little bit because sometimes you just get tired of a middle parting. Also I just kinda wanna try lots of haircuts.
And here I am having a laugh. It's all the pollen, it's getting to me.

I have a small collection of film prints which I keep in a packet together, and they're like a little world of pictures. They're pretty normal - just some moments. Nice things to remember and just... things. Pictures of how my room looked last year, pictures of me in the bathroom. Stuff like that.
Pictures shape your memories of the moments they represent, but what if you only had distorted pictures? What if all your physical memories of something were stretched and strange, waving and looping? What would you remember then? I have my little world of pictures, and the world of memories in my head, but it's pretty fun to play with them. It's fun to melt your memories into something new.
Also: Here's a bonus non-stretched picture of Elliot just because I like it:
I've been thinking about Twin Peaks a lot lately. I've only watched the whole thing once and I keep getting the itch to rewatch it, but I haven't yet. Instead I've just been letting sweet cherry pie memories roam around in my head. There's so much I've forgotten, and there's probably a lot of things I never picked up on in my first viewing either. I'm surprised how many things in life remind me of log lady. It's not like I come across many logs on an average day. I love log lady though. She's one of my favourite characters and she kinda reminds me of myself, a little bit. Like just about every other Twin Peaks character, I think her outfits are pretty great. I also love knitwear and long skirts, but I haven't found myself a nice log yet.
Here's some pictures of me looking a bit like a young log lady:
Maybe log lady, like me, loves to paint cute dogs?
