I have a playlist blasting it’s little heart out at me 😀 (The Waterboys, whole of the moon)
Rory is fast asleep at the side of me, twitching occasionally as she dreams of fun stuff, no doubt. Mitch is curled into his usual coil at the foot of my bed and Zoe is noisily grooming herself on top of the wardrobe, where they have a special cushiony, fleece covered bed 😀
I have a bottle of vanilla coke – one of my favourite bad-for-me things (Eminem – without me) and there is a bit of ‘stationary bopping’ going on. (But don’t tell anyone – it’s embarrassing :p). I would call it ‘chair dancing’ but I am sitting on my bed 😛 and I have a delish strawberry in my sucky stick (vaping device).
Gosh, that’s a lot of bracketing!! Obviously the italicised brackets are the songs I am listening to as they occur (stiltskin – inside)
The sky is blue here, with fluffy white clouds, and all the trees I can see from my room are finally green and looking lush again 🙂 I can even hear a lawnmower buzzing away somewhere. (the mission – love me to death)
I added a couple of new bits to my blog recently – a flag map and the community widget 🙂 And I am considering adding the banner I use on my poetry blog to the bottom of this page, and closing the poetry blog. I can hear the murmurs “What? You have a poetry blog?”
Indeed I do, but I never remember to post there, and I do have a poetry category on here. So if you start seeing random poems cropping up in the next few weeks, it’s because I always intended to blog them and will have finally gotten round to it. (evanescence – going under)
Also – I have discovered something that seems to be calling itself ‘Advanced Stamping’ which looks like lots of fun, and has resulted in me ordering more nail stamps. BUT – as the UK (as usual) seems to be wayyy behind the rest of the developed world in these things, and I seem unable to buy a pack of the replacement stamping heads, I have gone for buying cheaply from china at a quid an item, instead of the usual £6-£8 cost of the stamping websites. (flock of seagulls – I ran)
But there is method to my madness here. Sorta. My delicious Creative stamper that I got from an authorised UK re-seller – http://rainbow-connection.co.uk/ who do the most amazing indie polishes from around the world – does not come into this category, but my MoYou one does. At least it seems to. You see, the pictures on ebay, from china, look identical to the most commonly used stampers on you tube, which are all ‘branded’. But, I thought to myself, WHERE are they actually manufactured?? My guess is China. So, we shall see when they finish arriving. (Lisa stansfield – Alibis)
I also spotted some plates identical to MoYou ones but at less than half the price. I have ordered one, because, well, you know, although it might be a fake, it might also be simply from the same manufacturer as the ones MoYou sell, but without all their branding applied.
We will see when they arrive.
My Eldest went to the seaside with her boyfriend recently and had a look round the huge market there. She came back with a fistful of new polishes for me, all at a quid each, and they are perfect for the ‘advanced stamping’. This is timely, actually, as I have been re-swatching and sorting my nail polish hoard as I was getting a bit fed up of not being able to find the ones I wanted. (Tom o’Dell – Another love)
And I had a parcel last week – of something I didn’t even realise I needed until I saw it. But the creative ideas that have been floating round my head for the last couple of years, and that I have been building up a supply of things for, will finally be able to happen 😀 😀 😀 as this last thing provides the perfect ‘framework’ for the ideas to actually come to life. There will be pics 😀
Cor blimey, this is a long post. Hope you’ve made it to the end 🙂
