I'm not even going to bother mentioning how crap I am at blogging again - you all know it by now. I am seriously considering combining both my Craft Blog, and this blog, because at least there would be updates here then. But I'm not sure how many people who come to look at my crafty stuff would be interested in my real life stuff, and vice versa.


Since I last blogged not a lot has really happened. I have a pretty dull life. Work, sleep, eating, more work, etc etc. However. I did buy some soap shaped like a D20, from the fabulous Geek Soap who can also be found on twitter here. I also bought the boyfriend a soap which has a Mario 1up mushroom in it. We are a geeky household.

I'm also off to see Amanda Palmer and (hopefully, volcano dust allowing!) Evelyn Evelyn next thursday, which I'm looking forward to. It's been ages since I've been to a gig. We went to see Springsteen last summer, which technically was the last gig I went to, but in my mind, huge open air gigs are really not as much fun as the dark, sweaty, indoors, crushed up against other people who love the same music as you, gigs!

Other than that, I've mostly been carrying on as normal. Making crafty things (which are listed here and here), being my normal geeky self, and generally living.

New Listings

I have finally got around to listing some sock creatures over at both my Etsy Shop and my Folksy Shop. There are some new creatures, as well as some you may have seen before, along with some pairs of socks.

As a sneek peek, here's some pictures of my newest creations:

I've also made this funky little creature:

But she's not for sale - she's going to be a birthday present for the boyfriend's niece. She watched me making her and fell in love with her, and as her birthday's next week it just felt really mean not to give it to her!

Today I'm planning on sewing up another monkey, and if there's time, I might sew some new socks, so keep an eye out for more listings soon!

Happy Easter!

How on Earth is it Easter Sunday already? It doesn't seem like 5 minutes ago that it was Christmas! Anyways, I'm currently sat on the sofa in my mums kitchen, rewatching last night's Doctor Who and finishing off a sock. All in all it's pretty blissful. We came down to visit Bristol on Friday and it's been a pretty nice weekend on the whole. It took us an age to get down here on Friday, after which point we pretty much collapsed at my mums house and didn't do anything - although my dad came to see us, which was nice. And then yesterday my mum took me and my sisters shopping, which was an experience. We went to Cabot Circus, which is the big, new shopping place in Bristol, which I haven't really explored before. And all in all I spent far too money. I have got a new cardigan and a new dress to show for it, as well as a really cool Toy Story shopping bag (it has one of the aliens on it!) and the boyfriend has a new tshirt and a cuddly Stitch. And I bought my mum and my sister their birthday presents! But I'll be living on beans on toast for the rest of the month I think!

It's been a very big telly weekend too - as mentioned above I'm rewatching Doctor Who, which I think was pretty damn cool. So far Matt Smith hasn't beaten Ecclestone in my book, but already I'm enjoying his performance more than Tennants. Time will tell if he'll become my favourite new-who era Doctor!

There was also Ashes to Ashes, which I totally enjoyed, although was thoroughly confused by, and me and my sister have already been coming up with theories about what's going to happen and how Gene's involved in it all. And finally, there's a new Jonathan Creek on tonight, which me and my sister are very excited about. We've always been massive fans of the Creek!

I think that's all I have to say at the moment. I'll probably blog again when I'm back at home!
