I have no excuses – I am lazy and have been working on expanding my butt whilst sitting on the couch!

I’m still feeling pretty lazy, so…..I am going to do a picta-post.

So, in no particluar order I spun my first hand spun, plied and set the twist now it is ready for knitting with (I’m thinking of making a cowl), Christine had a birthday so we had an office party, we took Poppy and Nephew to Llangollen (view over river) where I brought him chocolate ice cream, which he managed to wear more of than eat, when blowing up the balloons Poppy had a freak out – also see video below, Pics of alf and millie just prove they are still here, pretty little cat clips that I found (not sure what to do with them yet, but they were too cute to leave behind), Poppy had a bath after Nephew also coated her in chocolate ice cream (she was not pleased), pics of sis and great tanning incident (she went into spray booth and asked for the tan to be ‘noticable’ she was worried about the final colour in the morning), Poppy attacks DH with particulary vicious kisses, Nephew turns into monster, some pendants that I am quite proud of (can be found on artfire site, search for Welshmillie), re-took photos of all of arfire products, some bags that I am thinking of selling (their sizes aren’t perfect, so maybe discounted), Knitting Cluedo is going well there is still time to sign up, I finished this nanner sock but going to have to undo the bind off cos it is too tight (any suggestions?!?)…..and…..phew!

That is it, in a nutshell.

I have started another lot of spinning and started washing a fleece, but that will be another post, maybe on Sunday.

Before I go, I will let you witness the Poppy and the balloon incident – it’s across a couple of vids…

If anyone wants me I’ll be making a butt shaped dent in the sofa…..


So, most people within listening distance know of my desire to become a housewife.  I would love the cooking, crafting, cleaning ok maybe not that, growing plants and flowers and veg.  Add a couple of rugrats into the mix and I would be in my element.  But someone went and invented cash, and then all of a sudden there is a need for it, and people have to work to get the cash.  What happened to bartering with chickens for cripes sake.   My housewife dream floats further and further away……..

But then Miss V introduces the plurkette hencircle and I am busy reeling my dream back in again. 

I have always been a more traditional girl at heart.  Yes I went through my goth stage, and punk too, but while my friends were busy contemplating death and it’s benefits I was in the kitchen making them pie to go with those contemplations, and knitting them a ‘something’ to keep them warm too!  All these things were decidedly not cool. 

Why did women burn their bra’s in the 70’s, if I was there preparing potatoes to roast in the fire?  My friends who were already weird, though I was the weirdest one there.

So there we have it, I have a dream, a job that I am happy in as far as jobs go, a husgeek who humours me and two cats. 

So why do I want to nourish my dream – beacause it’s a dream and a dream that can’t be a reality is a very sad thing.

I am going to be doing some experimental baking soon.  New docs diet says no wheat, no dairy and I don’t eat meat.  So I am going to attempt to make some cakes that include none of the above.
