I got the hankering to make stitch markers today, so I did. They’re jumbo beauties for 20mm needles. They’re a teeny bit fragile ’cause the big loop wire is on the softer side, but they should be fine with normal use. I’ll have to remember to add an addendum about that when I put the listings up. Oooh, and just… Read more »

First things first — finally got those photos done! And edited, and listings up. I think I finally cracked my lighting set-up. Of course, still had to do some post-editing, but I guess that’s always going to be the case to get the levels more better. Raven was helping by being where I wanted to set up, of course. Vivi… Read more »

You know how it is, you plan on doing x or y, and ADHD says ‘oooh, Z!’. So that means I ended up going through my stitch markers to check that the stock quantities were correct. Which has also included making a few here and there. It’s been nice. 🙂 It’s just like… we’re chilling, and Eurovision is tonight. Smalls… Read more »

Two Scoops

The boys were snuffling around down near me, so I figured I’d see if I could scoop them up and take a picture with them. They were very tolerant! I didn’t keep them for more than a handful of seconds, but they were calm until I let them go (and then they wandered off to do their own things again)…. Read more »

It’s another one of those days where it’s nicer outside than inside… yay over-insulated British homes. ¬¬ And yes, actually went outside for a postbox run. Illness has finally caught up with Z, so I was trying to spare him a few steps. I also made dinner for our three children… yeah, three. J is over visiting Smalls, and decided… Read more »

‘And it was thii-iii-is big!’ Vivi seems to be saying. Cutely. As many cats, as many big personalities as I’ve had over the years, this boy is something special. Raven is a doll too, most of the time. He has a tendency to wake up, then come yell at me for 10 minutes. Mooom pay attention to me! No not… Read more »

Sorry to miss y’all yesterday, but I was having like, THE worst day, health-wise. I picked up some degree of whatever bug poor Smalls brought home. Like, I was in so much discomfort and pain that I couldn’t sleep it off… what the ever loving hell is that, I ask you. I started feeling a bit better this morning once… Read more »

I was making a point to take pictures of all the cats when they were napping yesterday. Raven came to enough to give me a glance, which only adds to the saucy dapperness, I reckon. Both of the boys are very handsome, but I feel that Vivi Being Vivacious™® means he gets more camera time. I’ve been feeling better today,… Read more »

Really Now

I don’t know if it’s because I busted hump so hard yesterday, or because I was trying to pop my ears earlier or what, but I got slammed with the most violent wave of vertigo that I’ve suffered in almost 20 years. I ended up curling up on the brown couch ’cause it was the nearest pleasant flat surface, and… Read more »

The Odd Couple

So like, this happened somehow this afternoon. Partially my fault — I’d been holding Vivi and he ended up there. I managed to call Z through to see it, and then sneak a photo or two. Proof, Poison, that you’re slowly developing tolerance/affection for the boys. It’s been a busy one. We had the declutterer in, and we were doing… Read more »
