Got my crojo back

Among us dudes.. no, I don’t know what they are either, but the kids keep asking for them

King Lizard, or Mr Gecko, inspired by a colleague’s message on a particularly shit day at work

The Child/Grugo/baby Yoda.. whatever the fuck it is (more husband requested than child)

‘Picklechu’ I’m not even gonna try and explain this one… they ask, I provide

Pickletta/Rose / Made on request from girl/child

I’m now making a blanket, followed by another blanket, followed by.. a blanket. And whatever random creatures get requested in between. I may have ordered Black Friday wool, I’m literally tripping over it.

Octopus

I get bored sometimes…

Sometimes people will compliments me on something I’ve made. I don’t respond to compliments very well. I used to respond with ‘I get bored sometimes’… I’ve managed to stretch that to the slightly more socially acceptable ‘thanks, I get bored sometimes’. But my social ineptitude is sometimes impossible to hide.

Anyhow, I made Mr Octopus over a couple of nights after work whilst watching TV. He’s a pattern from a book, I got a bargain on some sock wool (the best stuff for monster making) and had to test it.

In other news, my fridge-freezer gave up and the end of last week, which wasn’t good as I couldn’t afford a new one. Santa is helping though (he gets earlier every year) and a new one arrives tomorrow. A different santa helped when our washing machine stopped washing just before Christmas. I like Santa.

Someone on Facebook posted something which describes my financial status… He said ‘I dropped a pound coin under the car seat and couldn’t find it, so I guess I have savings now’

It made me chuckle, anyway.

Well, enough rambling for tonight! G’night folks!
