May I introduce to you - Humbug. He/it/she is a Giant Black and White Tarantula. As the tweezers give the piccie scale, you can see that at the mo Bumhug (as I like to call him) is only a spiderling and would fit on a 20p piece - weenie! He/it/she (lets choose he) arrived yesterday from the the wonderful shop in Cowplain called South Coast Inverbrates - the boys had a jolly jaunt down there and enjoyed choosing our next baby. I think J really fancied a Goliath Birdeater - maybe next time hmmm. Anyhoo Bumhug eats micro-crickets - now I've heard of everything. He dispatched two of them with great efficiency yesterday and also managed to maim a paint brush - he's one fierce hombre!
Well Sp 6 starts this week - I have a new pal to spoil - but as yet am unclaimed by my secret pal *sigh* its only been a day but patience is not one of my strong points.
I feel a bit better - still snotty and tired but over the hump of it. Now it's just taking the time to recover fully.
I knitted a lovely scarf whilst ill - piccies will follow - it's a beautiful mauvey pink in moss and double wrap knit stitch. Also cast one to knit 2nd little shell sock - but no knitting this weekend as I had my nose in a rather good book or two. I ate lots of bad things likes chocolate and nuts, read and lazed about - yummalicious.
Managed to finished week 1 of my course. Heard from my tutor - seems nice. Will be attempting start of week 2 later today.
Have J's home-ed group today (hurrah - did that sound sincere - nope) I just don't like groups (forgive me Allie & Dani) but that's the way I am. They do my nut, but J is still in a quandary about remaining in the group (some fav friends have left) he still has some very close friends there but I think they are the only reason he wants to go. Oh well - such is life.
Having a hair, tattoo and piercing debate with myself - I'm 39 very soon and want a change to my look. I fancy going lighter again (have been dark for 14 months) plus I need to get my Madonna redone as I had to let it heal. But shall I go the whole hog and have another one as well or shall I finally get the tat I've been talking about getting for the last two years? Watch this space..... can you stand the tension?......Isn't this post exciting?.....Not!!!
Ta ta peeps xxxxx
