Spring has sprung (for now at least)

The past few days/weeks have been a strange mix of up’s, down’s and seemingly twisting on the spots’s. They included being 100% on the side of the fuel protesters who were blockading depots to highlight climate change, then getting frustrated with those same protesters whose actions meant one of us was stuck 160 miles away…

Well THAT took longer than expected…

Hi again, long time no see… Sometime around mid-January I decided to take an internet break. Just a couple of days to unplug and destress from emails, newsletters, shopping, doomscrolling and accidentally seeing crappy happenings from people who should know better as they forwarded misinformation and bile. That somehow became a week. A week I…

Well That Was A Nice Break

Hello. (If you can please imagine The Terminator walking through the door, with a bag of shopping in his hands, saying “I’m back” at this point, I’d appreciate it). I am not the biggest fan of the holiday season. Socialising with people you haven’t seen for a year (or two in this case), culturally mandated…

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 (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 (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…
