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 (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 (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…

Auto Prediction

(This one is a bit of a rant…you have been warned) Let’s start off with a statement I believe to be 100% true: NO ‘self driving’ car will EVER be as safe on the road as an aware, alert, fully rested, sober human driver. The problem is that a lot of people, with more money…

Two out of Four

If you had asked me a couple of months ago what I would do with some unexpected free time then book reading would have been top of the list. That is not how it has worked out. What I have been doing instead is hate-watching bad films and telly whilst knitting what I am lovingly…

Music festivals…the dreaming of sleep edition

Part two of my music festival ramblings is about where to sleep. Before I started going to music festivals I had just assumed that everyone brought their own tents and camped in the mud. I’ve seen all those images of people wading through churned up fields of ooze and that was one of the reasons…
