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 (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 (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 One (of the rest of my life)

So, my cunning plan, before I decide to pick up my ball/blog and stomp off home, is to reintroduce some of the routine and structure I had in my working life (many, many, many moons ago it seems) onto the wondrous creative free time I have recently found myself paddling in. I want to write…

Ponderous Ramblings (what?! again?!)

In real life I have just heaved a big sigh. Sometimes, oftimes in fact, my sighs are just me emptying my lungs in a noisier manner than usual, this big sigh was because I was about to start writing. Big pause and another big sigh. My relationship to writing is a lot like my relationship…

All together now….

I’m currently trying to think which tune works best for the word ‘Procrastination’, I think I’m gonna go with the jaunty Cliff Richard version of ‘Congratulations’. Procrastinations and celebrationsWhen am I sitting doing nowt but idling Procrastinations and jubilationsDon’t want the world to know I’m self-sabotaging However the reason for my lyrical wonderings isn’t because…
