The Week That Was (13/12/21)

NOTE: For reasons that will quickly become clear I want to reassure people that there will be NO photos or descriptions of injuries in this post. Monday: I sold some Etsy stuff to a repeat customer today. I think that is probably a milestone of some sort. At 9:30pm this evening I found myself walking…

The Week That Was (06/12/21)

Monday: I sold knitted boobs to someone in America, gloves to someone in Somerset and walked in the rain to dog-sit for a few episodes of bad hospital drama telly. Then I came home and knitted half of the Sun for a solar system pillow that may end up taking over my life (which is…

The Week That Was (22/11/21)

Monday and Boob Update combined: Today I created and posted off some custom green and pink boobs for a doula. I am getting to the stage of really not wanting to knit many more of these (I used to only be able to knit a pattern once as my boredom threshold is so low…not any…

The Week That Was (08/11/21)

Monday: I can’t remember when I previously mentioned the ex-window model I blagged from an old work colleague (with which to pose pretty Etsy photos) but when I did blag it, it arrived without it’s ‘head’ Today I was presented with a hand made one, which I think is much nicer looking (and is definitely…

The Week That Was (01/11/21)

No Boob Update this week as I put my Etsy shop ‘On Holiday’. Frustratingly this seems to have slipped me back down to the bottom of whatever algorithm they use to rank searches, but it was worth it for the lack of Post Office stress this week. Monday: Although I distinctly remember vowing to never…

The Week That Was (25/10/21)

Boob Update: I’m not sure if it’s just the fact that it’s half term or whether boob season really is coming to a close but sales have dropped off this week. Not ended completely, just slowed enough that I can spend my days doing more than knitting breasts to replenish my stocks…phew. Monday: Had my…

The Week That Was (11/10/21)

Boob Update: if you simply imagine that every day this week there was either some knitting of boobs or posting of boobs to far off lands (California!!!) then you won’t be too far off and I won’t have to keep typing ‘knitted boobs’. Monday: Still feeding the squirrels, tiny birds, larger pigeons and magpies, so…

The week that was (30/08/21)

(I know this title is not original, but I enjoy the alliteration so this may be a keeper) Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday: These three days have sort of blurred into a swirling mix of paint and water. Ceilings were patched and painted and deliveries of big items went off shockingly smoothly. We are now in…

Week Three (02/08/21)

Monday: I finished another book! Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended for those who do not mind their stories narrated by foul-mouthed tame crows. There was one annoyingly simplistic character ending and the last two pages were needlessly tacked on solely to sooth humanity’s ego, but neither of those things…

Bored? Who’s bored? I’m not bored.

I don’t save toilet roll inners for a weird reason, I save them for a perfectly valid reason. With the ends folded over they become treat holders for an energetic puppy, but as I haven’t seen that gorgeous puppy (or her equally gorgeous owner) for a couple of weeks, they have now become my new…
