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 (29/11/21)

Monday: There was no dog-sitting today as The Kid decided that Zoom is actually an acceptable alternative to -3° weather and I made the monumental decision to not buy any more wool, yarn or even attractive string until I have worked through at least…some…of my stash. Tuesday: The snow and ice have melted enough for…

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 (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…

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…
