A cold little sunday

Today is grey and cold.

Today is trying to make me curl up in a blanket and be cosy and do nothing useful.

Today I am not falling for it.

I am wearing yellow on yellow on peach.
Harnessing the power of summery fruits so this day does not collapse into a ball.

I have bought paint to re-do the chipped window sills.
I have started clearing out my craft room for its new lick of paint.
I have bought ingredients for my flatmate's birthday cake I'm making tomorrow.
And bought him his very own cake tin.

And then I made some lemon curd - sunshine gold in a jar.
I used this recipe from tinyhappy and it worked out just perfectly.

Now that I have been productive I shall sit down and eat lemon curd with a spoon.

kittens take to the stage

Last weekend I stayed up for 24 hours making 9 new kittens.

I watched 3 movies, some terrible television and ate cooking chocolate.
It was well worth it though, looking at their adorable faces makes me squeal with happiness.

They have now flown to Wellington to participate in my friends glittery play "Space Bitches"

If you are in Wellington go and see it!

old socks

If you can't have a kitten .. make a kitten.

Do you know, one day we were driving down Edgeware Road and we saw a sign that said "FREE KITTENS".
It is the best sign you ever could see.

day to day

After our Japan adventures we haven't been doing much at all.
Gareth is learning carpentry and I am growing flowers/knitting dinosaurs.

It's quite nice really.
