I appear to still have a blog. Hello, blog.
So, the past eight months, then!
I HAVE A CAT
This is Bella and she is my favourite person. We have great conversations. She bites me sometimes, but we're working on that.
I have been knitting. Made a cardigan, a shawl and a couple of smaller items. Tomorrow I plan to buy yarn for my next big project - a proper traditional Fair Isle vest for Dad.
I have been working - started a 6 month contract in 2012, just completed my three years' service, so that could be said to have gone quite well. Mostly doing schedule stuff at the moment, so I spend most of my day looking at pastel-coloured excel spreadsheets of my own design, and hopefully getting better at managing projects in the process.
Have LARPed and am properly back in the swing. My new faction felt a little closed and not overwhelmingly friendly at first, but once tendrilised properly, they are good folk and have made us feel very much at home. Kelka (my troll character) being both easy to play and a happy mix of ridiculous and tragic is helping. I won a Fayre competition (best ritual performed by non-ritualists). Did try another system (Serenity), which has potential - although I managed to get written up in the 'incident book' before time in - for getting run over by a runaway gazebo. This really happened. The gazebo was more damaged than I. Might be back but am staying well away from the tents.
Went on a 90 mile pub crawl over North Yorkshire and could get into this hiking thing, maybe.
I am still in a happy relationship with a lovely creature. We are provisionally planning to set up home together next year, probably over the other side of Huddersfield, as commute-compromise. This plan depends on all sorts of things. But looking promising.
How are you alls?
