I have completed my first ever dress and it even survived its first meeting with a washing machine! I used McCall’s Lined Flared Dress pattern design A. The fabric is Kanvas Studio – Galaxy Sky. As it was my first project, I’m not entirely happy with it, but I have learned a lot and it’s […]

A large amount of time has passed since my last update, but I have an update to my interactive Warhammer 40K Map. I worked on the project for several months after my last blog entry, but I began to become disheartened with the sheer amount of data entry I had been doing. I hadn’t really […]

I feel I needed something written down to act as the bare bones to help me remember. It’s only been a few days since I got back and already I’m forgetting aspects. Day 1 – October 18th We started at 09:40, with a bus to the train station where we caught the 11:00 to London […]

After a long period with little change, over this past week I’ve made much more progress on the design and functionality of my map. As always, when I compare my work to a previous version it never looks like I’ve done much, but I really feel like the map is starting to come together as […]

It’s been a while since I posted any progress with my interactive map. I’ve been adjusting it every now and again since my last post in February last year but those changes were mostly to planet locations, adding in new areas etc. I haven’t made any particular progress in the appearance of the map other […]

Last week I took my CBT. I am now mobile. I’d always said I didn’t want to learn to drive – I was in a car accident when I was younger and I think this has put me off. Circumstances have meant that I’ve never really needed to learn though, I’ve always lived near good […]

It’s been a while since I posted, and I feel bad about that as I’d been doing really well to blog once a month. Unfortunately my new job meant I was so exhausted all the time! I’d get up at 6am every day then catch two buses to work (one of which was usually late […]

This past month has been quite exciting. I’ve had so many awesome opportunities and taken part in some fun events. I’ll start off with the good news. Volunteer Work On a whim I put my name forward to be a newshound at TrueSteamAchievements (TSA) and I was successful. Now I get to patrol steam press […]

Last night I did something that is quite out of my comfort zone: I attended an event where I knew no one. Social events bring out my panicky side at the best of times so to attend one where I didn’t have a safety blanket of a friendly face was a little scary. To increase […]
