Prototype Testing

My very lovely and talented friend Sarah makes the most awesome knitting project bags, needle cases, needle rolls, and manty other delightful handmade things which she sells here. She’s a well talented seamstress and definitely put lots of thought into designing them just right. I have many of her project bags and my collection keeps […]

Weekend highlights

A quick recap of the weekend in photos

4 years

Today the 17th of March is my arrival day. Four years ago today, I came to the UK to live. Well, technically it was the 15th of March that I arrived on the plane to Heathrow but I usually use the 17th as I liked that my first day of work was St. Patrick’s Day, […]

Beer for Punks

Normally my Wednesday evening plans consist of going to knit night at the pub, but when my friend Jenny invited me to be her +1 guest to a beer tasting evening that she had won a free place for two at, I couldn’t pass it up. The event was a beer tasting at the BrewDog […]

One tough yogi

Or not. But I’m a bit out of practice so I’m giving myself some leway as all good yogis should. This weekend I started working on my goal for the year to get myself up to 50 sun salutations. A bit of a self-challenge in there but it will also be good for helping me […]

Craft Swishing

So I should be in heading to bed but instead I’m blogging while I wait for my iphone update to finish downloading, which probably still won’t finish in time but hey gives me an excuse. Plus I really wanted to blog about this before I forgot. Yesterday, my knittery group of friends & I had […]

A few small knits

I’d been working on a few more complicated and fiddly knitting patterns and kept hitting snags with them. So I opted instead to do a few more small simple things to give myself a break before I started lighting the yarn on fire. I was packing together a box to send to my folks, so […]

Unravel 2012

Despite still battling the chest infection of doom, which funnily enough has me sounding a lot like Kathleen Turner apparently, I ventured down to Farnham for the day to go to Unravel. I went last year on the Sunday and it was quite a nice pleasent relaxed day out. Obviously as they were pretty much […]

Performance Center and me

So part of my new role at work is to manage all the testing for my new team. As the team is so small, I am there only tester so that includes things like taking care of the performance testing. Now this isn’t a scope of testing I’ve generally had much to do with before […]

Diving into Narnia

One of the things on my 30 for 30 list was to finally read through the entire Chronicles of Narnia series. I’m pretty sure I’ve at least read The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe at some point but that was likely so long ago I don’t actually remember. But ever since the film versions […]
