It feels really strange to be writing again. Not sure quite when I became so selfconscious about the whole business, to be honest, although I suspect it happened right around the time I started to grow disillusioned with internet culture in general. These days, I can't help feeling that the less of myself I share the smaller the target I'll represent.
...Wow, that sounded paranoid.
Anyway, presumably I'll start writing about
something sooner or later. For now, though, here's a quick run-down of the main things that matter to me at the moment.
Firstly, the little fuzzy guy in the icon. His full name is Sweeney No, and recently I was slightly worried to read that apparently he won't be done growing until he hits two years old.
Secondly, the work situation: nonexistent. I'm enjoying this, but I recognise it probably isn't terribly good for me. It's kind of like chocolate, really; I shouldn't be so self-indulgent and at some point I probably won't be, but for now I'm not prepared to get too worked up about the whole business.
Thirdly, the jewellery. You can find this here
. Note: it is vitally important that you don't purchase anything from this site because I'm incredibly lazy and most of the items listed have already sold at local craft events. I wish that photographing and describing this stuff was half as much fun as making it.
Fourthly, cookery. More on this at a later date, as I'm pretty sure not everybody's going to want to read my experimental recipes. I'm not quite Heston Blumenthal
yet, but dammit, if I had his sort of financial resources I'd dearly love to be his second-rate knock-off.
But enough about me - how are you all doing?
