Z is for Zug!

Zug is german for train.


I'm on the train today. Probably quite a few of them.

train tracks

Posted in advance as today has probably been full of hecticness and stress.

So, it's the end of the a-z. It's been a tough ride.

I struggled somedays. Others it came easy.

But it's been great to meet some of you and visit a lot of blogs. 
I did at least ten a day, and I'm still nowhere near finished! 

Happy blogging!

Y is for Years!

Dressing Up

The years just seem to keep passing. Faster and faster.

Not a Book: 3D Object

Life is just flying by before I seem to be able to get a grip on it.

Freaky Friday Farmer

I'm 25 this year. It's scary how long ago I left to come to Canterbury.

Out in Canterbury

Who would have thought I would end up here for 7 years almost?

Sunlit Mist

About to leave now.

Will I get a job that I like? Any job at all?

Day 178: Love Me!

 Where will the next year take me?

Day 171: Confessional

X is for Xanadu!

What a cop out on my part today, but what can I say? I had absolutely no-clue what to write about.
So listen to a happy song and have a few minutes in disco heaven! :D

W is for Wreck this Journal

Day One: Arrival

Wreck this Journal is an art book of sorts by Keri Smith.

It is a subversive endeavor to get you creating by wrecking a book.
WTJ2 Scrub 2

It will challenge you.
WTJ2: Cut

It will push you.

It will make you do batshit crazy things.

It will make you look like a weirdo.
Wreck this Journal: New Shoes

But you will love it.
WTJ2: Wear the Journal

And you will never forget it.
Day 365: Walking Away

You will even sleep with it.
Day12/13: Sleep with your Journal

It becomes your life. Your art. You style. It takes you over.
WTJ2: Pick Up without your hands

Believe me, I know. I've done two of them.

So, go get one. Available from all good shops and online ones too! Amazon has it.

(She's also done a number of other very good books along similar lines, but I would suggest Wreck this journal as a starting point!)

V is for Vagenda!

Day 16: Blur

If I was more with it tonight and not about to fall into an exhausted stupor, this post would be something amazing about a couple of articles from vagendamag.

Specifically this one on not shaving and this one on making a choice as to what feminine norms to embrace.

If you are interested in the freedom of women not to conform to social norms and cultures, read.

Really read.

U is for Ukulele!


I'm kind of learning to play the ukulele!

I got a purple one for my birthday.

I only know how to play a couple of songs. 

But it is so happy making! Even sad songs.

Upbeat and joyful.

Tinny. Tanny. Out of tune. In tune.


Making music was never so easy!

Music videos there are all by the one and only Amanda Palmer. 
Ukulele, piano playing,  most awesome musician.

T is for Tea!

Bench Monday #34

Being British, tea is a pretty significant part of life!
(Just playing the stereotype! But I do adore tea!)

V-Day Tea

It comes in all shapes and sizes, tastes and textures!


Soothing evening milky tea.


Strong morning cuppa.


All sorts.

Day 165: Meet Mug

Just give me my cup of tea once a day and I am content.


Add a biscuit, and I am happy!

Hope everyone got a cup of tea today!

S is for Sewing

Late night project beginnings...

I'm what you would say 'learning to sew.' Quilting, cross stitching, embroidering. Beginner at all.

Birthday Apron

Pin Cusion Caddy

I adore making things with thread and fabric. I love to choose the colours and patterns and mix them together.


... and it all started with a big bang...

I love to take a whole lot of little crosses and make something whole.



I hope to get better at this whole sewing malarkey. I hope to finally figure out how to finish my quilt.

Happy Saturday!

R is for Rain!

April Showers!

We are officially in drought.
We have had incredibly little rain in the last two winters.
For England, that's weird.


But today it poured.
All week the rain has been on and off.

I know we need it, but could it at least wait until I have got inside?

Q is for Questions

Who am I?

What am I doing?

Can I do something?

Feet Up
Why am I so tired?

Where is my motivation?

Walking the Halls
What will I amount to?

Is anyone else out there?

Are we an imagination?

What's the point?

Are we there yet?

Watching borgen. Danish political love.
How the frack do I cancel my TV license?

Why is there so much anger?

Why can't we help?

I'm a Cartoon!
Why are hardback books so expensive?

I Need This
What else do I need to do prior to moving in a MONTH?

Penny jar
Why is everything about money?

What is life?
