Not a Goblin

Batman is… not really a lapcat. Sometimes he’ll want to cuddle for a few minutes before running off, and we had one of those rare spells earlier. So I took pictures, to which he made this gloriously offended face. He was actually enjoying himself, but yanno… face. *pats face in mind* There’s not much going on for the mo. I… Read more »

Yup, it’s the box and stitch markers again. But this time, the little bit of yellow that was still showing yesterday has been tended to. Now I just have to make sure to not get mucky fingers all over my paperwork, ha ha. I’m happy with it as a useful prop though. What else… what else. Work was aight. Post-work… Read more »

I find myself doing more bead-drilling science this evening. Chatting with Nufrond on Thursday, the subject of hand drilling things came up, and she reminded me that heeey, sometimes you have to start with a smaller drill and then move up to a bigger one to keep a thing from shattering.

The ones on the upper tray are for 10mm… Read more »

I had a parcel to run down to the Post Office earlier, so I crossed the street to take pictures of the flag when I noticed it had become ensnared with the neighbouring tree. It’s not just caught — the end that is attached to the tree is holey, and that is probably making it snarl worse. I’ve commented to… Read more »

Z took today off because he was helping at school this morning. So we thought about it, and decided we’d do a spot of child-free shopping, nab a bit of lunch, that sort of thing. He had a voucher for PC World, and I wanted to nab some bits from Hobbycraft, so that works out, as they’re in the same… Read more »
