Ah, it's been so good to have a bit of telly to look forward to and now episode one is a mere matter of minutes away. Since I used a picture of Donald Draper (swoon!) to get excited about series two, I will use a picture of Joan for series three. What a snappy dresser this lady is and absolutely drop dead blimmin' gorgeous. I have got to start holding my shoulders back... :) If you're watching it tonight, then enjoy! Right, I'm off to get comfy. Woo hoo!
Edit: Ten minutes later... Well, apparently I'm six days early! I'm nothing if not keen... Sorry if I made anyone panic - I know I did when Charlie Brooker came on. Hee hee! For a few awful minutes, I thought it must have started last night but according to the wonder of the internet, it starts on Wednesday 27th. We've had it written on the calender for today since hogmanay! By next week, I will be even more ready.

"...there were disco moments of ensnogglement and bra-fumbling which came to very little."
As read in Moab Is My Washpot by Stephen Fry on the way home from work tonight.

Hello. Why not hop on over to one good apple to enter Emily's giveaway? You could win one of these super cute knitted hairbands along with other mystery goods, maybe a speedboat. That is all as I'm off to watch a film before bed (if I can stay awake) just to maximise that weird weekend-that's-not-a-weekend feeling.

How totally cool (man) is this Mexican wrestler tea cosy?! Apparently it was available on etsy but it looks like they're all sold out now. Make more, please, Ibsen Lab! While we're on the subject of wrestlers, don't you think that the people of Britain (or people of a certain age in Britain i.e. nearly 30 or older) should be showing some love to our own national wrestlers instead of giving it ALL to Mexican and American wrestlers? Much as I love a bit of lucha-related crafting, I also have much love for Big Daddy (and Giant Haystacks - divided loyalty's no issue for me!). However, looking at the sales of 2009, it seems that next to no one out there shares that love and I just know that cannot be true! If you want to demonstrate your love for our native wrestlers ***shameless plug*** then go and buy yourself a very reasonably priced Big Daddy lino print or lavender hanger from my shop, if only to prove to me that I shouldn't give up on poor old Shirley Crabtree, rest his soul :(

I am aiming (in no particularly practical way) to do more printing this year and this clever lady's work is getting me all excited at the prospect. Her etsy shop is just beautiful. I want most of the things she has made - prints and notebooks alike.
