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 (18/10/21)

In an effort to regain some equilibrium and energy I have started listening to self-help podcasts but, because I am who I am, they are science based self-help rather than woo/New Age ones. The favourite at the moment, because it is short and basically the name says it all, is Just One Thing on the…

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 Whatever That Was (04/10/21)

As much as I have been enjoying my new(er) blogging format (which is ironic considering one of my first posts was about how I didn’t think ‘journalling’ was a real word) I’m changing it this week. I have limited energy, physical and mental, so I am rationing it to make sure I have enough for…

The Week That Was (27/09/21)

This post may turn out to be quite short, because it’s either that or me ranting on for pages and pages and pages and pages…and none of us want that. Monday: My journal notes ‘Britain has gone mad again because 5 lorry drivers called in sick’. Queues at the pumps and homes full of dangerous…

The Week That Was (20/09/21)

With my car stuck in the garage all week this was indeed the Walking Week, but none of it hurt, my legs didn’t fall off and the sky didn’t fall in because I somehow survived without one of modern life’s status symbols…a success then I think. Monday: Walked to the post office (legs didn’t fall…

The Week That Was (13/09/21)

This week someone sent me an email via Etsy, enquiring about discounts for bulking buying knitted breasts. To get a true picture of this ‘Week That Was’ you should imagine me and my home surrounded by millions of knitted boobs…as if they were tribbles. Monday: Summed up best by an image I feel… Tis the…

Dear Diary…does this work…? Hmmm…(16/08/21)

Monday: Today I got my first Etsy ‘Custom Order’ So after a bit of searching for suitable supplies and back and forth with photos of swirling coloured wool samples, yarn was chosen and ordered. The big spoiler for today is that I spent the rest of the week anxiously awaiting it’s arrival…which was REALLY annoying…

Week Two (26/07/21)

Here we go again… Monday: Is it HEATWAVE weather again, or just normal July…who can tell anymore? It has been a weird day, or rather, it has been what would have been a totally normal day 18 months ago, but now is weird. I ventured out to a shop and got pissed off at the…
