The secret to younger looking skin…funny the big beauty brands never tried this one

First, drink some chocolate milk, but make sure that as much as possible get’s all over your face, your upper lip and chin especially. Then you rub some snot from your nose all over your face and let it dry in – it should leave a kind of slug-like trail across your cheek, and mayContinue reading “The secret to younger looking skin…funny the big beauty brands never tried this one”

Weaving magic and cooking up a storm…and Hallowe’en too

So we’re at the end of my 4 day weekend and although I didn’t get as much weaving done as  I would have liked, I did get some done. I also spent 2 hours a day in the park, about an hour and a half a day walking around the city (listening to all kindsContinue reading “Weaving magic and cooking up a storm…and Hallowe’en too”

Fairy Princess or Pixie queen…either way I never win

I have a 4 day weekend coming up and I have great plans to get some weaving done. I’ve just finished making a warp, it’s on the loom and I’ve started threading (pics to follow), but I suspect that the company I’ll be keeping on this long Hallowe’en weekend, will ensure that little or noContinue reading “Fairy Princess or Pixie queen…either way I never win”

I’m pregnant, I have a cold and Hannah has started school….I have LOTS of excuses!

But I don’t really care if anyone wants a reason for my silence, shit happens – and blogs aren’t top priority when you are throwing up every day, your 3-year-old has hit “toddler-dom”, school, wakeful nights and tantrums all at once…and recently I have a sinus head cold to make me feel like crap. ThereContinue reading “I’m pregnant, I have a cold and Hannah has started school….I have LOTS of excuses!”

Friday Weaving

My cold and chest infection are abating and I’ve actually had time to do some weaving. Not much, but a few hours is better than nothing, so I won’t complain. I’m hoping to get 2 scarves (skinny, bright autumn / winter scarves) out of this warp. And to make sure the colour and texture variation ofContinue reading “Friday Weaving”

Potty Training, head colds and warping

It’s been one of those weekends and it’s not over yet: We started potty training yesterday – after 4 pairs of knickers in less than an hour I was dispairing of the whole thing, and started thinking that Carrefour nappies weren’t so expensive, and we could pay for them until she was about 8 withoutContinue reading “Potty Training, head colds and warping”

at last I uploaded – Spring & Summer fruits!

at least that’s what the colours read like! Raspberry, cherry blossom, honeysuckle, hot pink, fuscia, fuzzy peach… either that or a list of cocktail names! They’re now on Etsy and the next warp (in slightly darker shades of pink) is on the loom.  As we’re potty training this weekend, I have my doubts about howContinue reading “at last I uploaded – Spring & Summer fruits!”

What have I been doing ? – no idea

Life seems to pass in  a whirl these days – without any Walnut on top (for those of you who know UK chocolates, you know what I mean). It’s just been busy, family visiting (still here), work, finding schools, taking Hannah to the park – and then when there is that precious hour after dinnerContinue reading “What have I been doing ? – no idea”

The slacker returns

yea – no need to say it…6 months?! They passed in the blink of an eye. It’s no consolation but I had some great and passionate ideas for blog entries over the past 6 months…here’s a summary of my mental rants that never made it to a keyboard in their full glory: Complaints and bitchesContinue reading “The slacker returns”
