Day in the life of Fat Frocks

6.15am - Alarm goes off and I sigh, press snooze a few times and finally drag myself into the shower and get ready to head to work. I catch the train to Cardiff and head to work in one of the libraries at Cardiff University.


8.45am - Arrive at the hideous 70s building I work in and eat my breakfast before going to my desk.


9am-1pm - Provide IT support in the morning, help people access the wi-fi, scan documents, change passwords and anything else that comes up. Tweet from our library account and reply to any questions on there. Work on any marketing campaign we might have or create displays like the new book stand below.

1pm-2pm - Head to the park for lunch, read the paper, tweet and walk a little.

2pm-5pm - Work on the issue counter, returning and issuing books and dealing with queries. Send books to other libraries as part of the inter library loans service. Attend meetings of the working groups I'm part of. 


5pm-6pm - Get the train back home, make some food and head to a yoga class for an hour.

8pm-10pm - Hang out with the dork below, watch some Netflix and faff around in my room to avoid doing chores which Martyn inevitably ends up doing. 


10pm-11pm - Read books, blogs and the days news before going to sleep.

  6. Those rolling stacks are lovely! Students would always be so daunted by the rolling stacks in the library I used to work in. The colours make them so inviting.

  11. The salmon looks so good! And I love the little white rabbits you have on your table!!! I love rabbits. Your job at the library must be fun though. Don't you feel a little bit like "Bel" from beauty and the beast when she saw all those books?!! lol

  12. Your day sounds perfect pal. Quite similar to mine actually! I might do a post like this, I think it's a really lovely idea to share what really happens in our lives day to day, rather than just the bits we choose to show... Though mine would be MUCH more boring :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad
