As readers most likely know, my beloved laptop Anat has sadly become unusable. I also discovered from going through very old posts that I was wrong about when I got her; I've actually had her since 2013, not 2014! Six years is a hell of a long time for a laptop to keep going, she … Continue reading My new laptop
Every now and then my brain becomes good for nothing but making hideous composite images. I decided to make one about dogs that I absolutely must experience owning in my lifetime. The choices were very hard! About 60 dogs made the list of those I'd have if life was long enough. We'd likely be able … Continue reading Life in dogs
I've been meaning to write this post since October, but as usual, life got in the way. To cut to the chase, I want to tell you about something alarmingly simple called Plum. Now, it's not a secret that my financial situation is not amazing. I live on Disability Living Allowance, and while my … Continue reading How an app helped to pay for my wedding
I finally got Snapchat recently. Way behind everyone else of course. I decided it might be a good place to put lots of spontaneous travel photos without clogging up the internet. I mainly end up putting whimsical stuff like this on it. Here are some pictures of recent food. Perhaps the biggest news of … Continue reading Recent roundup
So it turns out I can't actually go very long without getting bitten by the bug of floorplanning again. I was recently shown a really nice house for rent on Rightmove, and I thought it was so nice that I was inspired to, once again, do my own adaptation of it. This is definitely … Continue reading Houses are therapy
Here are various images from my time so far in Jurassic World: Evolution. It's pretty much a modern version of Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, one of my favourite games. Chunky was a Chungkingosaurus who got very upset when his companion died of old age. He broke out of the main herbivore enclosure on Isla Muerta and murdered … Continue reading The ballad of Chunky
I recently went Christmas shopping with Jodi, mainly with the purpose of getting Freya a bed and activating my new contactless card, as I buy pretty much everything I need in life from Amazon. But it's difficult to gauge a good dog bed online, Freya needed a new living room one because her previous one … Continue reading Christmas shopping
Yo guys I had a birthday again, and I'm 29! It's also been a year since I went on a surprise trip to the zoo and Will proposed to me! Of course we got married recently so that's kind of a bigger deal. On my birthday itself, we had nachos (best food) while Jodi came … Continue reading Birthday roundup ’18
Almost three weeks by the time I'm actually writing this. It's fun being married. I know not a lot actually changes day to day, but there's a weird undercurrent of contentment. As I said before, we love all our presents, but the biggest news is probably that we have a dishwasher! It's not a cure-all … Continue reading Two weeks married!
Eight years ago, it was 2010 and I met Will. We started dating after 2 days, moved in together after 2 weeks, and into a flat of our own after 2 months. I was hoping we'd continue the pattern and get married in 2 years, but life got in the way. It turned out we … Continue reading We got married!
