Air raid sirens are one of my interests, probably started by the original Silent Hill game when I was a kid. I think I also just like things that cover a lot under brief symbolism. I like flags and they represent an entire landmass, people, language, and way of doing things in just one icon. … Continue reading Musings on Civil Defence sirens
Maybe life would be easier if I was of those people who didn't have feelings about anything.
This month has been very busy and exhausting. We've also all been a bit ill in a different way. I had a fever and some mad confusion, Will got a sore throat, my sister-in-law was sick and it looks like my mother-in-law might have got C. diff from work! So really not a smooth time … Continue reading Christmas catch-up
We were prepared for the possibility of getting a flight to Israel at 5 in the morning. Thankfully that didn't happen. Will went to bed after a weird date night, I stayed up cleaning because the landlords were due to inspect us in the morning, and I had the election broadcast on the TV … Continue reading I guess we’re staying for now
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 … Continue reading The one where Letti turns 30
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 like to have ambitions for the future, sometimes very intricate ones. I realised that we're three decades old and we need to have a solid plan for how we're actually going to get to our future, instead of just having ideas about it. I came up with this lil' infographic. Unless we … Continue reading Current life plans
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
On Halloween we went down to the restaurant where we had our wedding reception exactly a year prior, and had a very nice dinner. There's always something tangible in the air on the 31st itself. We had to avoid the motorway due to issues with the car, so we drove through so many beautiful … Continue reading Married 1 year!
