If you’re hurting. If you’re struggling. I don’t know you personally, but I do care. If I was there with you, I’d build you a deep, soft, warm, safe nest from blankets and pillows and pleasant sensory things, and position it in a quiet room without sources of stress. I’d bundle you up in it and hold you and soothe you, and bring you tissues and a drink and snacks...
Current Projects. A List
This is nothing fancy or special. I just decided it was about time I made myself a list of my current WIPs, since I have a terrible tendency to tidy them away when guests are visiting, only to completely forget about them for weeks afterwards. There… View Post

Girl-cat prancing playfully and adorably about the house Almost trips up my other half in the kitchen Other half tells girl-cat off Girl cat immediately stops prancing, sits still right where she was told off, staring at him across the room with big, wet eyes. Refuses to come to me when called. Stares at the floor. Ten minutes pass. She’s still there. Other half sighs, sits down and...
Dude: So, I’m really annoyed. This blazer I bought turned out to have fake pockets. Now I have nowhere to put my stuff or my hands when I wear it. Me: Those aren’t fake pockets, they’ve just been sewn shut so the blazer hangs well on the rack. Dude: Wait, what? Me: Just take a seam ripper like this and cut the stitching, see? Now you’ve got normal pockets you...

poodlepants: I’ve been harping on this subject a lot lately, but I feel like somebody has to. The fact that Khan has been changed to a white man is quietly being accepted, and the performance lauded. I’ve seen people trying to say JJ did a good thing by taking color out of the equation, and that they are tired of POC being cast as the villains. Do people not realize the history that was made...
So my recent anxiety dream. I get accidentally pregnant, and my mum decides (despite living all the way over in a completely different country) that she wants a grandchild SO BADLY that she sends me to this institution where they won’t let me have any communication with my other half or not be pregnant or get an abortion, and it moves under my skin and I freak out, and I keep trying to kill...

arn1e2040: paulmasonnews: If they try to own my data, or integrate it with any other Yahoo service, I will leave. Also if there is any attempt to censor others, or if the cat pictures stop yup… that’s about my feels… They may do a total of THREE things to change Tumblr that I will accept. 1- Make asks rebloggable by default 2- Increase the character limit on answers to posted questions ...

So, a little while ago I posted my recipe for earl grey and lavender shortbread. I’d been looking for ways to incorporate tea flavour into my baking for a while – infusing tea into milk worked fine for cakes, but resulted in either too little tea flavour… View Post

So. Just found out my FIL and his wife, who recently adopted a pair of Ouessant sheep, have also now just sheared their sheep for the first time, And have also made friends with other Ouessant hobbyists. The upside is that I may find myself, over the coming months, in receipt of anything up to, like, 15 whole, raw sheep fleeces for spinning. If I sound calm, it’s only because the...

Have been having some more thoughts.
Oh! Another thing re: the price difference of plus size clothes compared to straight sizes. I sew. I know how much fabric costs when you’re buying it per-metre like I am. I also know that I can buy a whole roll of fabric for far less per-metre than just buying individual amounts. And I know that a company buying say, 100 rolls of the same fabric, can get it even cheaper still. What I...
coincidentallylost asked: Hi! I was chatting with a friend about the FA movement and we were checking the tag when we saw your post on bras. I agree with the stance you take on the issue while my friend said it's "right" that the bras be more expensive as they encompass more material and therefore will cost the company more to make, it's "right" there are less of them as less people need them...
I Hate Bra Shopping
Can I just stop for a moment to talk about bras? Because I am sick and tired of the fact that, accounting for supermarkets, fashion shops for young people, fashion shops for older people, dedicated lingerie shops and market stalls, there is a total of ONE place in my town that even stocks bras in my cup size. I’m sick of wasting half an hour reaching into the back of every shelf of bras in...

My email inbox: Dear Miss McDorf Thank you for your application for factory work. Unfortunately, having reviewed your CV, I don’t think this would be an appropriate position for you. However, we do have a PA vacancy available. If you are interested, please let me know when it would be convenient for me to schedule an interview. Dear McDorf. We do not want to offer you this...

valtheconqueror: Subtle Misogyny: A Tale of Two Dudes Read More THIS. I felt increasingly angry and anti-touchy the more I read of this. Know this feeling SO MUCH. I couldn’t put up with it, though, I don’t have the tolerance for it - so I’d probably end up blowing up at the work dude and scaring the shit out of half the office (and getting labelled a crazy bitch. ...
Sitting in my knickers. Eating a scone with strawberries and cream. For breakfast. Watching the cats eat the flowers I picked earlier. What? It’s May Day, bitch!
