Every reader must already know how obsessed with onomastics I am. I've had some more thoughts about it recently and I realised I don't think I've actually talked about our plans for children's names and whatnot. Originally I belonged to the school of thought that you should never reveal your intended baby names, for various … Continue reading Still obsessed with names
I decided to try my hand at another sandbox zoo, after the one I was originally working on started crashing. In my last zoo I was going to have all the animals of the world in different sections. However, I was still working on the Africa section when it stopped working. So, I decided to … Continue reading More from Planet Zoo
Believe it or not, my floorplanning obsession did not actually start with houses. While I have always wanted to build my own house, and I was stupidly small when I started scribbling designs, my first floorplan was actually a zoo! I did it on the back of a spare roll of lino and it was … Continue reading I’d love to run a zoo
In the morning we watched a film called 3-Headed Shark Attack because it was on telly and it was, uh, bad. Here are some more photos from recent times. https://www.instagram.com/p/B4Cmvfzhmkm/ Well it's nice that the party is out the way and I can decompress a bit. I drank enough … Continue reading Celebrating our first year of marriage!
Based on the recent houseplan and scrapbooking project, a bungalow variant. It's all on one floor, has one bedroom and a small guest/child room. Only 2 reception rooms instead of the 3rd gaming room, and no integrated garage or shed. So obviously, this house comes with the idea of having no children or only … Continue reading A bungalow concept
There's been a thing on the social medias recently where people put images of four favourite things in a category (usually games/ films). I decided to put mine together in Photoshop Elements purely because I don't have much else to do as I'm a bit ill at the moment. That's it really.
I went and did a thing that I didn't initially expect to do. I bought woodlice for Joop's tank. I can already hear people wondering how mad I've gone, but there is a reason for it. They work as so-called "vivarium custodians" and wander around eating old food, poo, and generally keeping the soil in … Continue reading I got woodlice
So the other day I had the idea for noting down what I want in a house, in my bullet journal. And then I was like, I'm not going to draw a plan this time, I'll just give my notes to a professional architect one day if we don't buy the house we're currently in. … Continue reading I’m mad about houses
I hope I'll be able to come up with some more interesting post titles soon, but here are some recent things. There's still a fair bit of unpacking to do, and the pressure is really on because it's almost time for Will's birthday party. I thought having a deadline would make me work faster in … Continue reading General house shenanigans
The garden was a huge mess the next day! I think everyone got a bit more casual about it when Will had to go to bed early. This also happened at the BBQ before last; the link seems to be cocktails made from Blue Curaçao; I love it but unfortunately it seems to make Will … Continue reading BBQ 2019, Freya is 10!
