It took much longer than I thought and this stupid cold added days to it. 12 months ago
I was still making mistakes with a practice ball but was getting annoyed so thought I may as well just try knitting with the proper wool.
The scarf is not nearly wide enough but I’ve done about 1/4 of it so far with no mistakes (that I can see.) I have a horrible cold so I’m sat in bed watching crap TV and knitting. 12 months ago
I remember when I was small asking my mum if I could change my name (when I first found out you could do it) and she said “when you are older.” I think it was because my name was really popular for the year I was born so in class I was always Laura number 3 instead of just Laura.
So we are planning to move eventually (We thought it would be sooner than later but the house seems to be falling apart around us) and I thought moving would be the perfect time to change it as here I have to tell people I’m called Emily now. There I will just be Emily. J thought it seemed like a good idea and as we are engaged we thought we would choose a surname together rather than me taking his name.
Have you picked a middle name yet? 12 months ago
1. No, I hate Christmas shopping so I put it off for as long as I can.
2. We didn’t have any to begin with :(
3. Yes but mainly with other people
- I went with an asthma attack on NYE and missed a party as I got admitted.
- Took J when he stood on a cup to get stitches.
- Took my ex when he cut his knuckle open with a knife and needed mini surgery.
4. I sent off a signed contract thing last week. Does that count?
5. I mainly text when meeting people or to arrange meeting. I prefer using email, FB and other sites. more words12 months ago
I changed all my names a while ago. The last name was difficult to choose.
How I did it was I thought about what sort of name I wanted. I wanted something shorter and more common so I didn’t have to spell it out so often.
Then I knew I wanted something at the beginning of the alphabet as my old surname began with a W and I was always waiting in school be it for the register to be called or to be put into groups.
Then because J is also changing his name I asked if he had any preferences, he didn’t. So we looked at a website that lists surnames and looked under the letter A. He picked 5 and I picked 5 to see if we had any in common. I don’t think we did so we just read down them until we found one we agreed we both liked.
I do like the family names idea but I have a lot of Irish catholic family with really long surnames :)
Good luck choosing one. 12 months ago

So I learnt how to cast on. That seemed to work. Then I tried knitting a few rows.
It started out about 3 inches wide and straight. In the end it was like a rectangle attached to a square attached to a triangle.
So I’m adding extra somehow somewhere. Knitting does not relax me.
I will try again tomorrow. 13 months ago

They had a zip on the inside leg so they were quick to get on and off.
The ones like this took 3 minutes to buckle up though which was a pain. 13 months ago

It’s water vapour. It is like steam from a kettle, it doesn’t smell or linger so no passive smoking.
I think they are really good. There haven’t been around long enough for studies to show the long term effects but we do know how bad smoking regular cigarettes are. The e-liquid doesn’t have any where near as many chemicals in.
If smoking was still legal inside I would view it as rude to smoke while eating so I wouldn’t get my e-cig out and smoke at the table anyway.
I think people are used to not smoking indoors in public places now. I know that I don’t smoke my e-cig walking around shops or on public transport. The only exception is in a pub. Alcohol triggers the want to smoke. But again I don’t do it in crowded places and still go outside with others when they smoke. 13 months ago
