I killed it!

My photo album, that is.  Ooops.  And yes, this time I think it really is gone – I was attempting to set up the new version of it using the NextGEN Gallery plugin within WordPress, and I guess that clashed … finish reading “I killed it!”

Crimble Shopping

Yesterday, I went Christmas shopping with the family in Canterbury.  I had some kind of idea in my head that I’d blitz through and buy presents for everyone.  Uh, no.  I managed to buy cards, wrapping paper… and a new … finish reading “Crimble Shopping”

Let There Be Glove

My “Damson Gloves” [Ravlink] are my current main knitting work in progress.  I have no gloves, you see!  I lost mine a couple of years ago, and it seemed silly to buy new ones when I could make some, so … finish reading “Let There Be Glove”

Oh well

Well, I had intended to keep on posting as much as possible for NaBloPoMo, but it turns out that wasn’t to be!  My landline was dead as a Dodo for a few days, and my internet connection with it.  BT … finish reading “Oh well”

Spinning again

As well as not having blogged since July, I haven’t done any spinning since then either.  During the blogathon, I posted that I was spinning some gorgeous merino fibre.  I got maybe 10g of the 100g braid actually done, and … finish reading “Spinning again”

It all went wrong!  I completely forgot to post on Sunday and Monday because I was pretty busy both days and not in much – over at Mum’s Sunday evening, and out doing various things on Monday, including an appointment … finish reading “D’oh!”

Battle Bonfire

Hopefully I’ll be off to Battle Bonfire tonight with the family – I have to ring my Mum and brother to confirm if they’re all going, but at least according to the Beeb Weather, it’s going to be a clear … finish reading “Battle Bonfire”

Insufficient Yarn Error

The main project that I’ve been knitting on recently has been the Ishbel scarf, and I was using some really lovely soft, squishy yarn for it: some BFL sockweight by Nimu. [thumb:1150:c:t=] Isn’t it preeeeeeeeeetty?  I know you can’t see … finish reading “Insufficient Yarn Error”

Gunpowder, Treason and Plot

Happy Guy Fawkes Night, everyone!  There are fireworks exploding all over tonight, and the Xandermog has the hump with me because I won’t let him out.  Silly beast. I’m still a bit under the weather, but getting better, so yay!  … finish reading “Gunpowder, Treason and Plot”

Od habbing uh coab

I was trying not to talk about it any more in the hope that it’d just go away… but it hasn’t.  It’s no good.  I have officially Got A Cold, which I’m really hoping isn’t going to be pig flu … finish reading “Od habbing uh coab”

Where did the photo album go?

Honestly, I have no idea what’s happened: my photo album section has seemed to vanish off the face of the web.  Only, all the files are still there, the database seems to still be up and running… I’ve tried repairing … finish reading “Where did the photo album go?”

Is Oratoria the plural of Oratorio?

Actually, I’m fairly sure it’s just “Oratorios”.  Which is what I’ve mostly been singing lately, now that I’m a member of Battle Choral Society.  For any non-local people: no, we don’t wear chain mail, we don’t carry weaponry other than … finish reading “Is Oratoria the plural of Oratorio?”

NaBloPoMo ’09

Since I’ve been a little absent from blogging since the ‘thon (did I blog myself out?), and today is 1st November, I thought I’d try something to kick me back into the habit.  I don’t know if I’ll manage it, … finish reading “NaBloPoMo ’09”
