Hello everyone! I am officially, undeniably an adult, my 20’s are behind me. It feels a bit weird but probably not a lot will change day-to-day.
I got some super cool presents!
Now that I have a sewing machine I definitely have no excuse not to sew up the holes and splits in various clothes. I hate doing hand repairs and even trying “hacks” with thick embroidery thread didn’t really make it any more enjoyable. Now I can just properly sew things! Have to figure out how to set it up first though.
While we’re on the subject of presents, people, please Messenger me your Amazon (or wherever) wishlist links! I know I ask this every year, and some people I did manage to hit the “Remember” button for so I have them in a tab on my Amazon account, but a lot of them I still don’t! I hate guessing what people might like and even if I know them really well I worry about getting duplicates, so please tell me what to buy you!
I’m currently trying to brainstorm Christmas and a December birthday. We don’t have a big budget but I want to try and get something for everyone.
So I’m not being a hypocrite, here is mine, it is in the sidebar of this site but someone tells me they have trouble spotting it every year.
The main stuff for my birthday happened on Saturday, and apparently I will also be going horse riding with Will at some point!!
We went out to town for a lovely pizza dinner! I felt a bit sick from the taxi for a while but overall I had a very good time! On our way home though it was going to be an hour and a quarter wait for a taxi! So we had to walk it (obviously I was in my electric wheelchair in case some dumbass from the DWP is reading) and it was absolutely fucking freezing!
I thought I’d just be going from vehicles to inside buildings so only went in a sweater. It was an error. It suddenly occurred to me that it was December the next day!
I definitely had fun to mark turning 30. Not everyone I loved could be there but I still had a great time.
On the subject of the cold I need to figure out how to find a proper winter glove. The full-finger gloves I do have are pretty much useless for doing anything with my hands, even steering my chair joystick or holding a dog lead. The fingerless hand warmers I do have are lovely and they let me have grip because my fingers are out. But, if you’re outside from any longer than a short trip, fuck me, do you get cold fingers.
I’ve got weird small and short hands though, any full-finger glove usually leaves me with an excess of material that fucks up my grip. Gonna get cold.
Here is a massive dump of pictures from the last month or so.
