I can see up Julian Barratt's nose XD

Wellllll... that's Christmas/New Year over for another year XD I so hope you all had a good one *hugs* :D

Things here have been mercifully quiet: Christmas Day was nice and for once, unspoiled by bickering/insults/airing of grievances etc :D Alex and I think we may make a home-Christmas a permanent feature from now on XD It was adorable how excited Astrid was when she came downstairs on Christmas morning and saw all her presents in the living roo: she did a massive gasp and went, "OHHHHHHHHH WOOOOOOOOOOOW!" *LMAO* Too cute ♥

I got some pretty nice stuff, including a pair of Meta furry black legwarmers, which I laughed at until I started to actually wear them - and now I'm addicted to the little bastards XD They keep my legs so warm under skirts it's unreal! They're all sold out of the pink ones otherwise I'd be after a pair of those too XD My Takuya Angel gauntlets haven't arrived yet though ;__;

Alex's birthday was nice but quiet, and Astrid's birthday was good fun, despite the awfulness of the panto we took her to see in Bournemouth - 2 1/2 hours (!!!!!!!!!!!!) of bum-numbing bad-gag torture for the adults, but she loved it, so it was all worth it in the end XD It's hard to believe that my little baby is FOUR years old! She's growing up so fast *sniffle* :D

As for the shop, we sold 7 items over Christmas, including one literally five minutes ago! I'm quite shocked really, not to mention chuffed - when I sat down and worked out our incomings/outgoings from last year, I found out that we ended up making a small loss XDDDD Wow, I totally rock as a businesswoman XD (However, that did include a big fabric order I haven't yet received from eQuilter, so in reality we probably ended up about ten quid in profit XD)

Um... and that's about it, really! We still haven't updated the site, which is a bit embarrassing - I just have not had the time to sit down and do anything, everything has been work-work-work or people's birthdays or being away at inlaws, the 2 weeks has flown by! It doesn't help that Alex is an apathetic stubborn git, as well :/

I hope you are all doing well, and I'm sending special hugs to vampy because she needs them right now ♥

Happy 2008!

Happy New Year to all of my adorable flist *sweeps you all up into a big giant hug and gives you all tons of kisses* Hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating tonight and that 2008 brings you all everything your hearts desire (unless your hearts should perchance desire nuclear war or something equally drastic XD) ♥

I'm going to be away down to the inlaws for the next three days (boo hiss) as it's Astrid's birthday on Thursday and we're all going to the panto in Bournemouth together *sporfle* but I'll try to pop in as and when I can :D vampy, do let me know how much cash to send you for the Suppurate System fukubukuro via my LJ when you know how much it is, since I won't be able to check my emailzorz for a couple of days ♥



Happy Christmas everyone!!! Much much love to all of you *biiiiiiig hugs* ♥


You know, I absolutely cannot talk about fashion with Alex XD Alex thinks that Craghoppers is haute couture and everything should be lined with Goretex X_________X

So I'm begging you, my loverly ladies (and gents), pls 2 b helpin me decide on what should I be blowin all my Christmas loots XD

Cut for a megaton of picsCollapse )

And here's the poll!

Poll #1104490 Please help me spend some loot!

What should I spent my Christmas cash on?

Angelic Pretty roadkill scarf, pink
Angelic Pretty roadkill scarf, white
Baby roadkill scarf, pink
Takuya Angel Mononoke Muffler, blue/red
Hime wig, white
Hime wig, milk white (pale blonde)
Hime wig, pale brown
Suppurate System feather cage choker
Might as well just set fire to it in the backyard, after having read these ridiculous choices XD

I suspect highly that the Angelic Pretty roadkill scarves are probably already sold out, which would be a terrible shame as I'm really taken with them - I was one of the 2 people in the world who actually loved the Baby white wolf roadkill scarf and I regret Alex talking me out of buying it pretty much every day ;___; (another good reason to be mad with him XD)

Honestly, if I didn't have you lot to natter fashion with, I'd go even more insane XDDDDDDD


It's bloody freezing here *shivers* and Alex is struck down with flu/cold nasties, he's spent literally 48 hours now sneezing, coughing and shivering and looking like a zombie with a snotty nose X__X

Thankfully, he was actually semi-well enough to take me out to Stanton House Hotel for a Japanese feast last night - I stuffed myself silly, and when we arrived, the food shop was still open, so we stocked up on a ton of stuff even before we went upstairs to eat XDDD

Spent the afternoon photographing and listing some new stuff for the shop - my mom produced this amazing jersey nightdress seemingly out of nowhere (well, I gave her a bunch of appliques and some fabrics and went "Uhhhh... here you go!" XD) which would SO not be going into the shop if it was in my size, because I would have pinched it straight off the bat - I LOVE the damn thing! I want her to make me one in my size - however, when I ask her to make me stuff, she now starts laughing and says very sardonically, "Yeah, Mandi, I'll do it in my free time" XDDDDD I think she may slightly resent me taking up all her time, a bit XDDDDD)

Anyyyyyyyyway, I'm just avoiding finishing off a sashiko cuff, so it's back to work I go *blows raspberry* XD

More meme...

This time, nicked off duality_duel:

Your Score: Freak- INFJ

20% Extraversion, 60% Intuition, 26% Thinking, 66% Judging

Well, well, well. How did someone like you end up with the least common personality type of them all? In a group of 100 Americans, only 0.5 others would be just like you. You really are one of a kind... In fact, I do believe that that's one of the definitions for the word "FREAK."

Freak's not such a bad word to describe you actually.

You are deep, complex, secretive and extremely difficult to understand. If that doesn't scream "Freak!" I don't know what does. No-one actually knows the REAL you, do they?

You probably have deep interests in creative expression as well as issues of spirituality and human development.

You've probably even been called a "psychic" before, because of your uncanny knack to understand and "read" people without quite knowing how you do it. Don't fret. You're not actually psychic. That would make you special and you'll never accomplish that.

You're also quite possible the most emotional of them all, so don't take this all too hard. Nevertheless you most definitely have the strangest personality type and that's not necessarily a good thing.


If you want to learn more about your personality type in a slightly less negative way, check out this.


The other personality types are as follows...

Loner - Introverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving

Pushover - Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging

Criminal - Introverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving

Borefest - Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging

Almost Perfect - Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving

Loser - Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving

Crackpot - Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging

Clown - Extraverted Sensing Feeling Perceiving

Sap - Extraverted Sensing Feeling Judging

Commander - Extraverted Sensing Thinking Perceiving

Do Gooder - Extraverted Sensing Thinking Judging

Scumbag - Extraverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving

Busybody - Extraverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging

Prick - Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving

Toy train ftw

Nicked off pour_me_coffee:

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In August I gave colbyucb a kidney (1000 points). In November I helped tarotjunkie hide a body (-173 points). Last Friday I helped ugly_kitties across the street (6 points). In January on a flight to Bangladesh, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). In October I ruled Asscrackistan as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points).

Overall, I've been nice (93 points). For Christmas I deserve a toy train!

Also, I have a new crush: Noel Fielding. Me = super lame fangirl much, I join almost the entire rest of the UK female species in this one XD

Astrid / Christmas giftage

Turns out Astrid has another UTI, so she's back on antibiotics :( Why does she keep getting them? It's so weird - I mean, we took her for that ultrasound earlier in the year and her kidneys and bladder are all wired up correctly, so... I dunno :( Maybe it's because she has an iron bladder and grimly hangs on for many, many hours before having a pee :(

Anyway, she seems to be on the mend and has finally gone back to pre-school this afternoon, so I'm having a quiet afternoon sitting on my bum stitching a new piece of sashiko <--- talk about a glutton for punishment XD And Alex is taking me to the Japanese restaurant at Stanton House Hotel on Sunday - yay! I am going to stuff my face silly with gyoza and tempura and yukimi anmitsu :D

In Christmas-related news, I've now sent out all my Christmas gifts and almost all of my cards to the following folkses:



I sent my mom down to the post office with like 3 giant carrier bags full of stuff and my debit card *blush, cringe* #^___^# XD

Phew, I think I'm almost completely finished with Christmas - the problem for me is that I have Alex's birthday on 28th December to deal with separately, and then Astrid's on 2nd January! So I have the two most major birthdays of the year right on top of dealing with Christmas *faints* XD
This bloody sashiko panel has taken me over seven months of sewing 2-3 hours every single day to finish, and I finally put the last stitch in about 10.20pm last night X________X I AM SO GLAD THIS FUCKER IS FINISHED!!!!!!! (well, I still have to wash off the pattern round the edges and trim and neaten the edges, but all the sewing is finished anyway :D)

I can promise you faithfully I will never, ever, ever stitch another one this big - I've included a pic of my foot next to it to give you some idea of exactly how big it is, I must have been insane taking this mad bastard project on XD

Cut for two moreCollapse )

All I can say is, I nearly cried when I finished it last night XDDDD I will be so glad to see the back of it, I can tell you XD
