Day 209 – Geoguesser

Is anyone else starting to get the travel itch? I'm seeing people going away, sitting by the beach or eating new foods, and I have a curious case of FOMO. I desperately want to stretch my travelling legs, but I also know we're still in a global pandemic, and travel comes with many risks. So,… Continue reading Day 209 – Geoguesser

Day 159 – Painted a picture with my feet

Let me start by saying there will be no pictures of feet on this post, just in case you landed here through some strange combination of search terms, or are just a bit squeamish about feet like me. This challenge was given to me by my sister on 1st January 2020, a time that seems… Continue reading Day 159 – Painted a picture with my feet

Day 143 – Voguing dance class

You may not be familiar with the name, but I'm sure you've come across this dance style. From Magic Mike XXL to Ru Paul's Drag Race, vogue or voguing has became a mainstay in popular dance culture. It was first highlighted in the classic 1990 documentary about the drag ballroom scene, Paris is Burning and… Continue reading Day 143 – Voguing dance class

Day 126 – Camping at home

My husband is on holiday this week as we were meant to be visiting family back in England. Although it became clear a while ago that wasn't going to happen, he kept his holiday from work all the same. As we can't go anywhere, we decided to have a break regardless and go camping...in our… Continue reading Day 126 – Camping at home

Day 125 – Book folding

A great source of new things for me has been my parent's next-door neighbour and family friend, Hazel. I've had numerous weird and wacky suggestions from her, but also some gems that I've been looking forward to trying – today's new thing is one example of that. My mum and Hazel went for afternoon tea… Continue reading Day 125 – Book folding

Day 124 – Origami flower

I've tried origami a few times over the years - I've managed to make a crane and even a dinosaur, but there's been a common theme each time. Whereas others find it a mindful and meditative activity, I get incredibly stressed out and abusive towards the instructor. For some reason, I thought making an origami… Continue reading Day 124 – Origami flower

Day 123 – Nunchucks

So after two days of baking, I needed a break. I mentioned a while back that I bought a stash of new things to keep me going whilst stuck inside, and today I decided to break one of them out: some glow-in-the-dark, foam nunchucks. Entirely made for children, but it was the nearest I was… Continue reading Day 123 – Nunchucks

Day 122 – Rhubarb and ginger cookies

So after yesterday's ginger bread it seems I'm on a bit of a ginger kick! I love the stuff, and always use it for tea or curries, but very rarely use it for baking. I found this recipe from Anna Jones, for rhubarb, ginger, and white chocolate cookies a few weeks ago, and it's been… Continue reading Day 122 – Rhubarb and ginger cookies

Day 120 – Learnt to Beatbox

Let me just start by saying I did not think I could do this, at all. I thought I would end up sounding like a lame, middle-aged Uncle, trying to trick the kids he's cool. I was always very envious of anybody who could bust out a beat, and even I tried to follow along,… Continue reading Day 120 – Learnt to Beatbox

Day 119 – Calligraphy

Before the shops started shutting and we had to stay home, I discovered a great shop in Frankfurt called Søstrene Grene. They sell all sorts of lovely stuff for the home, as well as a large amount of crafting stuff: the products have an eco-friendly focus, and everything is at a great "cheaper than I… Continue reading Day 119 – Calligraphy
