Hello everyone! :kiss:

It has been a long time since I was active here. I missed you. I would like to start from saying thank you to everyone who used my stock and created so many fantastic artworks :hug: It made me really happy when I checked my notifications today :) Almost 30 artworks! What a surprise!

I have some good news for you all. I am getting rid of the biggest burden that was stopping me - next month I am moving to new place in much better area of the town! Finally I will leave all my nightmarish neighbours and be able to live my life without their loud parties, waking me up before down on weekends, I will no longer hear their fights, their children screaming (Nazguls from Lord of the Rings are quieter and not that disturbing) and hopefully I will be finally able to rest, restore my energy and get back to photomodelling. I am so much looking forward to it!

For these of you who do not know much about my situation: Last year in January I moved in to the flat on the first floor (second if you are from USA). On the ground floor under my flat there is a family with young girl, about 7 years old. She is quite OK most of the time, however her parents every other day yell at each other, at her, to the phone or they are having friends over to late night and they love to loudly chat under our windows. Did I mention we have single glazing and we hear every word? But that on it's own could be bearable. But now let me present neighbour number 2! He lives upstairs and has small boy about 3 years old. Boy is spoiled so much that he is literally begging his child to follow him and boy is really a pest. When he doesn't get what he wants, he screams. Like a bloody Nazgul. It's more like a shriek in actual fact... Moreover fantastic daddy let's his child bang on the floor with his toys. In the bedroom. At 6 AM on Saturday and Sunday. It makes as bad noise as if you were hammering something. Right above my head. So one neighbour keeps me awake till late, then the other wakes me up early. What can be worse? Having new neighbour next door. We share bedroom wall. Of course she also has a small child that likes to play stereo during the day. So even if I have a chance to sleep in the afternoon, they don't let me. I could wrote more. Much, much more. Let me just top it up by saying that guy upstairs is the new neighbour - he moved in in November last year. Previous one had to be evicted as they were so antisocial and intimidating, that Council finally had to do something about them. Because you see, they all are council tenants: they have flats given to them by local authority and they pay tiny rent and little to no taxes. So when I am working and paying my taxes I am actually sponsoring these pests...

You can realize that because of all these problems I was drained of energy. Few times I was trying to pose for some photos, but I was simply not feeling it. My face was showing only tiredness and will to murder my neighbours... As an introvert I also dropped my activity here to 0, because I didn't have any energy left to be spent on social activity. Long story short my page was for last couple of weeks completely dead. And I hope now you know and understand why.

There were only 2 things that I could have done about my problem and I actually did them to overcome it. First was to look for a house to rent instead of a flat to avoid having so many neighbors. Secondly I upgraded my shop to earn more money to pay bigger rent. So first 2 weeks of March I was having my shop refurbished. New flooring, painted walls, removed old shelving and ordered new one. Then for 5 days straight I was working together with my husband for about 10 to 12 hours a day to have shop ready for customers. Assembling shelving, removing garbage, preparing stock... All time and energy consuming stuff that made our shop look like a boutique. And then throughout last week I was staying 2 to 3 hours after closing to process countless deliveries. Now shop is packed with most beautiful stationery products, from fancy pens to beautiful notebooks. I am so proud of it :)

Sidenote: if you ever were looking for a proper feminist, here I am. I was working as hard as my husband (sometimes even harder), I was carrying heavy boxes full of stock, metal elements of shelving, built it up, etc. Moreover despite the fact I had really nightmarish problem with my neighborhood, instead of whining I was looking for a solution until I finally I found it. That's what feminism is all about - women can be as strong and as hard working as men. And I can say I am. Actually I am becoming stronger than some men - I am starting to beat my husband in arm wrestling ;P Plus I lost 2 kilos and my bicep seems to be a bit bigger ;P 

Anyway having all that hard work going on and ongoing problem with neighbours plus looking for new place to stay I had almost no free time. However I found few moments. I managed to see Sonata Arctica in Glasgow. And I managed to make short session for you to enjoy. It will be uploaded shortly. Simple outdoor session done on one of Edinburgh's cemeteries. I think it turned out quite well :)

April is going to be tough because of whole moving home stuff, but I do hope to have everything sorted for May and I plan a couple of session for then. Be patient my little ones :) Your Goddess is going to return in her full glory! Victorious and restored :D  Expect me back fully active in the second week of May :)

Once again thank you everyone for support and kind words I received :hug: I will read and reply to all 43 notes I got from you hopefully next month :) Also on this occasion I would like to thank all my patrons. Don't worry, you will get your rewards :) Especially one very kind worshipper who bought little something for me ;) I will pose in this garment in the first indoor session I am going to make ;)

So that's all that was going on in my life. I hope you had better time than I did ^^

And now humbly kiss my shoes like good little worshippers you are :D :catwoman:  :D

Kisses form above! :kiss::kiss::kiss:

Goddess Amarie

You grew up to a legendary goddess.
There are so many pictures of you and so many stock material.
Much more than of every other goddess.
