Stuff and nonsense

Posted on: Tuesday, 24 May 2011

I have purchased these for the princely sum of £1.26:

From this guy. He's basically selling bits of scrap paper on etsy. Good on him.

They WILL have a purpose. I'm just not sure what it is yet.

That goosey head is the sweetest.

Sticky Stuff

I swear to God, I'm getting obsessed with this stuff.

Click on the link at your peril. You will be conned into thinking you're the CRAFT MEISTER and you NEED this stuff to fulfill your mission to CRAFT.

I love it. I bought the coloured spotty one to seal the invitations and now I've just gone and spent $40 on a random assortment with the vague notion that I'm going to use it to make place settings.

No definite ideas for now. But if you buy the washi tape, the ideas will come. I reckon.

Bedders is on his stag do.

I have spent the day doing the following:

- Picked up my car from Headingley before the traffic wardens come on duty at 8:30. Got there at 8:33. Realised the sign read 'No Parking from 8:00am'. Not 8:30. Didn't get a ticket though. Woop.

- Spoke to my sister about potential bridemaid dresses at length (for her wedding, not mine). Looked online at a Laura Ashley number. Recalled a Laura Ashely denim pinafore of my youth with much fondness.

- Walked into town. Bought a lovely top in Joules. Browsed in Oxfam Books.

- Spoke to a hungover Bedders. Spoke to my mum. Spoke to Bedders' mum. Spoke to dear Alex.

- Charged my phone.

-Bought sushi. Ate sushi. Realised M&S's new long packaging is a con. Exactly the same amount of sushi as before but it LOOKS LIKE MORE.

-Thought about doing work. Discarded thought.

- Kate came over. Discussed her (very exciting) love life at length. Drank tea.

- Ran five miles. Grr. Machine.

- Realised the oven is broked. Hmm. Made scrambled egg and salmon on toast. Realised my day has been quite fishy, what the sushi and whatnot. Ho hum.

-Bought paper. Read paper. Laughed out loud at Caitlin Moran's Royal Wedding Run-Down.

"Later in the show, presenter Andrew Neil asked if he, (Richard) Madeley, would "get rid of Charles and make William king. Madeley replied, "Well, if he was gaga, obviously," with the kind of breezy certainty that suggested that, should our heir apparent actually "go gaga", Madeley would step up to the plate and finish Charles off with a spade, as if he were an old badger knocked down by a car."

Never had so much post in my life.

I heart RSVPs.

Especially good 'uns like these.

All these holidays, man. I'll endeavour to write summat longer soon.
