After a long while, I have found my knitted accessories to be of some use. On top of that, I am knitting again! I have yarn that I want to use up! YAY. For the first time in years, we had a wave of heavy snow. Now, just in case you live in Canada or… Continue reading Handmade Winter Knits
The Birthday Lot 2016
In the two months or so that I have been sporadically Missing in Blog Action, I turned 18. That's February, guys. So it's about time I posted about what I got since this post has been ready to go for a few weeks now. Has it been that long already? My siblings still laugh at me when… Continue reading The Birthday Lot 2016
Reflection: Mock My Week.
(Featuring sheet masks and insta-crafting.) Mock exams are a roller-coaster of emotions. Psychology was fine other than that I didn't write enough, and didn't know my arguments well enough to write more. I know full well I am capable of at least two sides of writing for topics I definitely get, but for now I'm… Continue reading Reflection: Mock My Week.
Life and TV Knitting Update
Recently I have been reflecting on the blog and the writing style I use for it. It does sound like me, yes... a formal, too many thoughts me. I'm wondering whether I should attempt to adapt it or not. Big question. Another thing. I still need to finish the blog logo. Just assume it will… Continue reading Life and TV Knitting Update
I seem to have gathered an abundance of green things so I thought I would put them all in one post. It must be the side effect of living in a grey/brick red city area. Months ago, I finished an amazing, green lacy purse-stitch scarf. It was a Wednesday afternoon and I remember wearing it… Continue reading Green Things.
Must Knit to Quell the Urge to Eat during GBBO…
Okay, so when I started writing 'weekly thoughts' it was because the things that happened in my life were far too momentous to put into their own posts. Then all of my personal writing became the weekly thoughts so now I'm trying to switch it back a bit. I guess I am still finding my feet with… Continue reading Must Knit to Quell the Urge to Eat during GBBO…
SUMMER HAS ARRIVED.
As of 12:30 yesterday, the summer has started and so has the perpetual boredom, and the bubbling hype leading up to AS results day... I'm not one to laze around doing nothing (!) so I have my own goals set for this summer. This includes a reading list, picking up that new language again, as well… Continue reading SUMMER HAS ARRIVED.
Things that Happened (#6)
(posted a few days ago but reined in again for editing...) This would normally be your Weekly Thoughts segment but I think this has become a more accurate title! We've harvested our first batch of strawberries: a ripe little handful of deliciousness... I finished some books recently that I didn't post about. 'The Winner's Curse'… Continue reading Things that Happened (#6)
Every now and again, it actually feels like summer in England, especially on days like last Sunday. By complete coincidence I ended up in the garden holding Mom's phone, which has a great, 20-point-something megapixel camera. The only other thing I know about it is that it's from Sony's flagship Xperia Z series. Aren't I great… Continue reading Sunday Snaps!
New Nails and Charity Shop Buys!
So over the last week I've been helping out at the Nail Salon again. I removed the polish from last time, and my nails began to hurt. This is normal, apparently, especially when I have had polish on my nails all year without a break. The pain only lasts a day or two so as… Continue reading New Nails and Charity Shop Buys!
