I'm sure this idea has been around for a while, but I only just saw it, and as the only pics I could find were crappy quality, I made my own. Kudos to the folk who thought of it though, because it's fecking genius.Read more... )

Yesterday we went to Stonham Barns for a mini history festival with several re-enactment groups. We could only stay half of the day as Paul had to get back to Dad-sit so his brother could have a bit of a break from the appalling miserable git, but we still managed to fit in four displays and walked round the whole encampment.

I meant to do this the other day and allowed myself to be completely sidetracked, then forgot! Doh! Such a bad case of internet-brain... especially as I’m really excited to share this with you!
My story is called Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness, and here’s a line to hopefully tempt y’all to subscribe to the book:

Photo Op tales from JIBcon 2017

NB there are a couple here I already posted but I wanted these all together so just scroll on by any repeats...

I had too many photo ops this year. I’d gone a bit nuts buying them, because I knew it was my only chance to see our boys this year, and I was desperate to make the most of it. So I’d managed to snaffle one single with Brianna, two singles with Jensen, two with Jared, two J2s, the trio (J2 & Misha), a Jared and Misha double and apparently, two Jensen and Misha doubles. I was mystified by that last one for a while, until I remembered that for JIB7 I missed out on the Jensen Misha. So all I can think is that when I got my prophet pass and they offered me the chance to buy sold out photo ops, I had it in my head that I’d failed to get the Jensen Misha, so bought another. Yeah, yeah, I know – clearly I have more money than sense.

Photo ops

Oh boy today was hectic and so much fun, and it's nearly midnight, and I'm trying to back things up, edit photos, upload vids to Youtube and --- argh!

So here's a couple of my photo ops so far - I need to take photos of my others because my fave isn't here, ie. Jared leaning on me... I'll get that photographed tomorrow sometime.

Jensen didn't quite embrace me like I'd hoped but he did give me a pat on the back before I exited the room. He said something too but I was too flustered to catch what it was. But hey, look at those adorable pixie ears!

Such a pretty town! And so quiet inside the walls. There are cars and traffic, but mostly it's the rattle of bicycle baskets and the sound of chattering school parties that fill the air. Up on the massive walls there's a wide road but no cars except for one polizia car and a gardening truck. And lots and lots of walkers, joggers and cyclists!

I took a bunch of photos, and as usual the whole album is here if anyone is really interested. Scroll down for Lucca. But for now, it's mini Pic Spam Time!

I think Bhangra Bear is basically done. The white of the metal strut things looks a bit odd so I thought I'd paint them too but apart from that, it's just about finished. I've got to get approval before varnishing - no idea what their criteria are for signing it off but hopefully it will pass muster!

It's hard to get photos indoors, but I've taken a few to spam you with LOL.

My living room has been rearranged and thankfully the lion fit through the doors so he's now safely ensconced in the bay window. My back is killing me from all the tidying and furniture-moving, so I've just spent the last hour or so sitting on the sofa (now in the fireplace!) contemplating his magnificent whiteness. I may start drawing out the design on him tomorrow.
Here's the room awaiting delivery this morning. The tape measure was there to reassure me that I'd cleared sufficient space for a 1.7m long lion.Read more... )

There seem to have been so many birthdays lately, I can't keep up!
So firstly, Many Happies to anyone whose birthday I've missed and hugs all round - especially to you, fairyniamh!

The Creative Sketchbooking course has been more about drawing stuff this term so far - much more my comfort zone than playing with flour and chalk.

Apart from this picture being the scene Show should have given us...what a great story! These boys...I love them so much!

If anyone recognises the artwork, let me know who to credit because the girl who got it signed didn't know who the artist was, and my image search acame up with zilch.

Just putting this here as a little light relief... I think the little French boy was about the same age as I was, around two years old.

That expression on his face just cracks me up every time I see it.

Snagged from harrigan, whose quotes were pretty awesome.

Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 117. The second sentence will be your life for 2017.

Mine's from The Long Earth by Terry Pratchet and Stephen Baxter.

Some dreams were new, and at the same time very, very old...

Hmm. It's going to be an interesting year then!

In lieu of a review of the year (which I might get round to when I've fulfilled some pressing deadlines) I thought I might join in the Snowflake Challenge.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner
So here we are, Day 1 and already outside of my comfort zone - self reccing!
The challenge is to chose three fanworks, so I've gone for fic - all short ones.

1: Quite often when I track back through my stuff, I don't even remember writing it. This short piece is one I'd totally forgotten. It's probably best classified as a gen cuddle fic. The boys dealing with Bobby's death. A Dreamless Sleep - on AO3/ on LJ

2: Sometimes when I track back, I find fics I have not only forgotten writing but that surprise me. Sometimes I'm not a bad writer at all, and manage to write stories I actually find amusing. LOL. The True Meaning of Turning Turtle - a little cracky fun. On AO3 / on LJ

3: And for my final fic, one that got no comments on AO3 but I thought was an interesting idea. 3k of Sam finding a solution to removing the Mark. The God Delusion - on AO3/ on LJ

We were up early this morning and down on Felixstowe beach before 07:30 so set up for the Christmas Day Dip to raise money for the hospice. I reckon there were over three hundred nutty folk willing to either dress up or dress down and take the plunge, and they certainly drew the crowds.
