Not really much going on today. My head hurts and my eyes are telling me I should rest them… but let’s face it, I’m shite at that. I should probably like, make a slight effort… and maybe take some pain meds, ’cause the headache level of things is pretty high. But hey, it also distracts from those stupid things known… Read more »

I got it in my head earlier that I wanted to make a set of stitch markers. Set made… but can’t confirm if they’re going to work for the needle size I was hoping. Turns out I don’t have any 19mm needles, somehow. And ordering a pair costs a few pennies… but ordering a random-ass dowel is definitely cheap. So… Read more »

I recently moved one of our ‘house lasers’ to my desk, ’cause the cats love chasing ’em. Poison can’t really make out the one I’m using, whether it’s the colour or just me needing to change the batteries… well, I guess I’ll know when I change the batteries. In the interim, Batman is having a blast. He’s taken to jumping… Read more »

I decided to paint my nails earlier. I just sort of reached in and grabbed a random colour… then grabbed a different one. To my amusement, I realised this evening that the colour is a really good match for what I’m doing on my cross-stitch. It’s a great colour anyways (New Romantic from a-england, which doesn’t appear to be available… Read more »

I’ve not picked up my cross-stitch in a few days, so the progress on the ‘exoskeleton’ really stands out after a few days with eyes away. Obviously, still so so so much to do, but having the framework pinning itself down is *mwah* Past that, my biggest achievement of the day was finally photographing and relisting some necklaces… that I… Read more »

Well, it’s a bit chipped and smudged, but that’s okay! The point is that I painted my nails a different colour two days in a row, which means that I’ve found a satisfactory workaround to the current lockdown situation. If you don’t know, my husband has some really weird allergy that has morphed beyond recognition, but let’s just say I… Read more »

Sometimes, one manages to get the best possible picture of their cat ever. This was one such picture. Don’t worry, she’s happy up there in her daddy’s arms. I couldn’t really get away with holding her the same way, but they have a special bond. It’s sweet. Today has been pleasant. I slept in, the air coming in the window… Read more »

Cut!

We really like our neighbours, next door in the other half of our terrace (or duplex, for y’all American sorts). I extra love that we can help each other out, and that when Smalls needs a haircut, that a haircut can be provided asap. S was thrilled ’cause she hasn’t been able to cut hair due to furlough, and this… Read more »

I know that I still have so much work to do on this, but there’s something about starting in the facial region that makes me feel like I’m getting somewhere. It also stops my brain from gnawing on the fact there’s a few stitches of green on the left missing, or wrong, and just like… fix it later. Maybe when/if… Read more »

Z had to take Smalls into town to see the optometrist; we were a couple of months overdue at this point. Now Smalls, they love some McDonalds, and we’d not had any in a year (yanno, ’cause Coronavirus). Z had gotten his head around using the app and not having to deal with the drive-through, so that went smoothly. And,… Read more »
