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!
I've named this post not only after a recent picture I had to create during a game of Drawful, but also, the period of time that we are now in.

The effect is meant to be cumulative, but some places are very obviously already paralysed. Mainly, my forehead seems very frozen in place. My eyebrows can still move, but my … Continue reading 2 weeks since I got needled in the head
Although I haven't had my snail Jupiter for very long, I've just put together his big tank for him to grow into, so I'm doing a post about that in case anyone else finds it helpful. Because I went out to a physical shop, I was able to compare tubs and get the one I … Continue reading Setting up a tank for a Giant African Land Snail
via 19 Things Before 2019 "19 Things Before 2019" is one of my most visited posts by people coming from Google or other searches. I see its name so often in my stats and I realised I should really reflect on the things I aimed to do, because it's apparent that I'm really not going … Continue reading Reflecting on my 19 Things Before 2019 | 20 in 2020?
It's been almost 3 weeks now since we brought home our GALS. It's a slightly long story as to how we ended up with him so I'm gonna skip that. I might do a post about caring for Giant African Land Snails when I've had him for longer. It would be silly to do one … Continue reading More about our Giant Land Snail
