On bliss

I think the all-hours plumber is our modern culture’s greatest salvation. Within an hour of writing my last post, in which I commented that the toilet was blocked (ugh), a plumber was at our house, bless his Blundstones.

On peace and quiet

I like titles that start with “On…” because they always make me think of “On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and Vixen!” Today is the first day in a while that I haven’t had anything I’m supposed to go out and do. It’s been a hectic couple of weeks at Chez Cutlery Drawer, with work […]

FO report – Mama Moth

I don’t think I’ve knit anything so pretty for a while. This pretty, lacey, elegant shawl is for my pretty, lacey, elegant Mumini’s birthday.  Which makes it nearly a month overdue, but I bought her some earrings to distract her on the day. Provided you’ve been paying close attention to the blog and not drinking […]
