    That’s beautiful, and I love that green too! I’m totally going to sign up for this Sketchbook dealie just for you 😛 Do the workshops stay up for long? I fear I’m going to be ridiculously busy this month.

    Haha! Well, to be honest even peach ice cream sounds like it might be nice, or at least acceptable. 😉

    Oh, they are! There was once a fox in the garden – I know because they were shouting so loud and I went and scared it off. Their run door had been forced open and they were all sitting there… completely unharmed and unfazed. It was a miracle,…[Read more]

    O-M-G Charlie, this looks so tasty! Oh, when you get that dream house you should absolutely get some chickens. We got our first rescue hens in 2009 – they are such characters, and of course the eggs are delicious! But as a group they aren’t to be messed with, as our cats soon found out, being chased down the garden path. 😛

    Well, how nice that you really can have your cake and eat it too! The angle really makes it look bigger and that’s certainly not a bad thing. Cake is the best thing about birthdays nowadays – well, it’s what I get most excited about anyway!

  • They’re awesome, yay for citrus season! I’ve probably said it a million times before but I too am a master of procrastination, and pretty much always have been – Sunday nights at 9 were always my homework time, and well, I’m putting proper work off right now typing this! It’s got to the point where I’m having to disconnect the internet for hours…[Read more]

  • Yes it should! Maybe all the toy manufacturers have been given them as an example of what NOT to do!

  • Well, who couldn’t be cheered up by such a beauty, and those colours! The museum sounds like so much fun! I hope they have an Oozinator in their collection – a toy as memorable as that really needs to be preserved.

  • It’s so catchy! Thanks to this post I played it yesterday while working, for the first time in years, and can’t help but feel it was both a massive mistake and a stroke of genius at the same time 😛

  • Haha, that’s awesome. Who couldn’t smile at such a chirpy creature? He’s so happy! And Karma Chameleon is a definite earworm! I haven’t heard it for a while now but, back when I was delving into 80s music, I became totally hooked on that song.

    I laughed when you wrote about settling into high school as a senior, partly because I know the…[Read more]

    Thanks, Charlie – here’s hoping! And yes, really it’s no wonder Paris is so trendy. They literally are ahead of us!

    Happy New Year from here in the future <3 Goodness knows what you will pull out of your hat this year but I'm sure it'll be fun to watch!

    Yay for reindeer! I remember listening out for jingle bells, and sitting up, looking out of the window in hope of spotting something. While I don’t really do that anymore – I mean, he knows when I’m awake and he won’t come if I rumble him! – I do still enjoy the sprinkling of wonder in the air on Christmas Eve night. In fact, that might be my…[Read more]

  • Aww, that looks so perfectly cosy! As for Philippe’s hobbling, I know the feeling (or lack of)! My cat Oscar would sit on my lap all evening pretty much, and the same thing would happen. But it was totally worth it.

  • We tend to get the bulk of our snow in January-February, sometimes even early March. That excitement in dreary January was always very very welcome! I remember we even had my birthday off one year, which was doubly awesome!

  • Yes to that! Home Alone is being shown on Christmas Eve here, on the old-fashioned television. I can’t seem to say no to that film, especially at Christmas. Several inches of snow!? I think 2010 was the last time it snowed in December here, it was quite heavy by our standards (and I had to commute in it!). I remember those school days though; the…[Read more]

  • Yeah, that sounds like Christmas – even the lesser traditions need to be there! And when it comes to candy on those lazy days after Christmas, really, it’s all good! 😛

  • “Our trio is now fully reunited and it feels like the sweetest moment of all.” Aww, yay! And it’s nice to know Phineas lets the mask slip on such an occasion 😉 As for the candies, well, it depends what’s inside – but that’s part of the fun!

  • Jacob commented on the post, Three French Hens 4 months ago

    Haha wow, what a crew! They have attitude, which hens most definitely do! My mother used to knit hen jumpers for a rescue centre so I can quite believe the garb, too. Oh, and dishelleveled vacation look all the way – rock a Christmas beard 😉

  • Jacob commented on the post, Candy Cane Dreams 4 months ago

    Well, now I rather think we need more Christmas Koalas around the place! And indeed, a candy cane taller than yourself would be terrifying, but I still kinda want one 😉 Have fun!

  • Jacob commented on the post, Mesmerized By Lights 4 months ago

    Hilarious, adorable, and indeed relatable as our cats used to love exploring the tree – sitting behind it, getting their claws caught in it, causing trouble. It’s not quite as exciting/tense now with only one old cat who has little interest in felling the tree.
