"This is my natural hair colour" < and that's pretty much it really, though in actual fact I'm not lying because to me it is my natural hair colour. I feel most comfortable with my blue/purple/green hair. And I guess I lie to myself daily that I'm okay with how I look. Which I'm really not. *puts boxing gloves on and goes to hit the bag*  ...

It's not too often I get sad when a famous person dies. They're just people and I don't personally know them so I don't feel like it's a huge deal. The last time I had feels when someone died was when Paul Walker died and they did that farewell for him on the last fast and the furious. Today however Alan Rickman bid us all a due and left his human flesh behind. Am I sad he died? Well maybe not HIM as Alan. But him as Severus Snape....

Since I learned to crochet he's been in two minds about whether or not he actually likes this new hobby of mine. Probably leaning more towards the latter because it means mommy is often busy making stuff for other people and he very much needs reassurance that he's the most important to me. Tonight he handed me a random ball of (rather ugly) pale yellow yarn and said "I want to be the little prince" (we're reading it at bedtime and he loved the movie) so mommy made him...

So we're kid free this weekend which means we mostly just sit and chill drinking rum and coke and watching series or bad stand up comedy (well I think it's bad, The Person will argue that). Somehow the conversation turned to Star Wars and how Hasbro left out Rey in the new monopoly and are now adding her as a piece after a letter from an 8 year old goes viral on social media. Well...

I have SO many projects I want to do this year, 2016 is going to be a big one for us! I'm guessing this is more of an American targeted question though seeing as spring is only in September for us and I'm sure that by then I'll have so many new projects I want to do. This year some of my DIY projects are obviously crochet and making up my own patterns but there is a lot I want to do with Fysh like building a dog kennel...

Mid 2014 I taught myself to crochet a granny square and I ended up making on the size of a double bed for The Person as an xmas gift but I got bored with the whole granny square thing and winter 2015 I decided it was time to pick up the hobby again but take it up a notch. And so I taught myself to read a pattern. It was a whole lot easier than I thought it was going to be, kinda like learning a new language really...

This is a really tough one, I honestly don't know. I feel like I haven't done anything HUGE to make my mark yet and I'm nearing my thirties pretty quickly but I still have many many years (hopefully) to do things that matter. They'd know a lot by reading this blog, if blogs are still a thing by the time they're old enough to read and stuff. Like the fact that I am slightly cooked in the head, I'm a forest faery river mermaid with blue hair and a...

2015 was one hell of a year, am I glad it's over? Maybe, I'm not sure. It's brought me to where I am now so maybe not. But the one thing it taught me is that I can do anything I set my mind to, if I'm determined enough I can succeed and I am a survivor. So I am taking that with me into the new year, the knowledge that I am able to do anything. That I can be anything, accomplish just about every damn thing...

If like me you weren't aware - googol is an actual number (10 to the power of one hundred). Apparently it's how google got it's name but only the creators will actually know if that's true or not and I've never met them to ask so yeah, could just be internet make say.  I have no idea how or where Fysh found out it's a number but he must have heard it somewhere as he apparently knew this before me because a while back he started with "I love you...

So Mama Zombie posted this yesterday and I think it's so bloody brilliant I'm going to join her in it next year. I often struggle to actually sit down and post what's in my head and keep thinking "I'll do it later" then when I eventually sit down to write it it's too damn late already. I like this that at least once a week I don't have to think about a topic. Maybe it will help and get me back in the groove and habit of posting,...
