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?
You may remember that nearly a year ago now I listed my casting ideas for Tomb Raider. I've been watching lots of Resident Evil (a.k.a. Biohazard, バイオハザード) longplays recently to get my nostalgia fix. These got me thinking about how, as with Tomb Raider, I'd love for a movie loyal to the 1990s games to … Continue reading Fantasy casting: Biohazard/ Resident Evil
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
I know what you're thinking. "Letti, why are you still on this?" or at least "Why are you designing an arrangement for a plot of land when you haven't even bought one?" and you would certainly have a point. But apparently I've gone a bit mad, so I've gone and done it anyway. The house … Continue reading A plot plan
Even though I know I don't prefer the alternatives to our house plan, I keep making them anyway. Here's another bungalow experiment because I've gone mad. Again, I don't prefer it to our 2-storey plan, but if we were sold on single-storey living by then, I guess this layout makes slightly more sense … Continue reading I’ve done it again
We've been sleeping downstairs recently because the heat has been absolutely unbearable. Warm air rises, of course, and so getting upstairs to bed at the end of a long hot day was like stepping into a furnace. After one especially unbearable night (even for Will, who does not have POTS) we brought our mattress downstairs … Continue reading The Bungalow Experiment
Just a quick post to tell you about our new baby! He's a Giant Land Snail although is currently not very giant because he's still a baby. I am alarmingly emotional about him. We named him Jupiter (or Joop-Joop casually) because his shell looks a bit like the surface of the planet, Jupiter! At the … Continue reading Giant Land Snail!
Here I am doing house stuff again. It's the usual plan. But I started redrawing it a while ago, to have thinner internal walls and to try and do proper bay windows. Put lights in this time, some of which actually appeared in the exports, and managed to use our actual exact colours by entering … Continue reading Nonsense for people who like house plans
As the title says, we had our annual barbecue at the weekend, for Freya's 9th birthday, which actually happened on Tuesday. I think my dog is now something like 61 in human terms, bless her. I can't believe time has passed so quickly. I had a really good time at the party. Kadek came … Continue reading Freya’s 9th birthday, and the annual barbecue
It must have been nearly a month since I did this, perhaps because I've spent more time either doing house things or fruitlessly trying to gain energy via napping. This past week I had a triple-whammy of pain in the form of a 10/10 migraine complete with vomiting and diarrhoea, a period, and an alarmingly … Continue reading I’m not very good at blogging
