We're on to Q and I admit it, I had to search around for a word today and I came up with Quixotic :). I'm afraid there is no vampiric creature for today's entry because I simply couldn't find one, however I do talk about the film Queen of the Damned and there is another instalment of Ianthe's adventures.


AtoZ Day 17: Q is for Quixotic, Queen of the Damned


Soph is the one entertaining you over at FB3X today:

  • Wed, 20:32: I was furious with M&S today - was going to go there for breakfast, but they've changed their cafe. 1/2
  • Wed, 20:33: M&S cafe appear to have removed all from the menu that requires actual cooking and removed waitress service. The 2 reasons I went there.
  • Wed, 20:35: When I'm in town I use a crutch so trays are a nightmare, so M&S cafe with waitress service used to be a god send. Not any more!
  • Wed, 20:38: In other news it was Amber's first trip to the vet today (we've waited until she was settled)- she pooped on the vet -shouldn't laugh...
  • Wed, 20:38: However, have found a wonderful vet, he could see how distressed it made her and offered to call in to do the second jab. Lovely man.

  • Thu, 07:30: Yesterday's vet trip must have really tired Amber out, she's still fast asleep on the bed. #cats #Savannah
  • Thu, 08:05: Rob took a better piccie of Amber on my chair :) #cats #Savannah http://t.co/mvEHVfb50u

If you are looking for today's AtoZChallenge post, scroll down one :) (and thanks for visiting).

My dear Mama loves lamps. It is safe to say she has a bit of a lamp problem, but we've found a solution. Custom lampshades mean she's not filling the house with lamps any more, just changing boring old lampshades to new ones :).

We found this lovely lady on Etsy who makes lovely lampshades, her store is called ArthouseAttic. She does other custom furniture as well.

Now Mummy currently has three of her lamps and wanted another one to match one she already has. So I emailed ArthouseAttic to see if a commission was possible. Unfortunately it wasn't. Hence it was decided that I should try my hand at custom lampshades :).

An old lamp was found in the local hospice charity shop along with various items of silver jewellery and then I raided the local fabric shop for net, ribbon and trims. Yesterday afternoon I then set to work and this lunch time (I had to stop yesterday because I ran out of ribbon and trim) I finished it.

I can post it here with impunity knowing Mummy will not see it because she is something of a technophobe :)

I have come to the conclusion that I love my hot melt glue gun and sewing net onto a lampshade frame is a pain in the proverbial :)

Good morning, it's far too early to be awake on a Saturday, but here is day 11 and letter K for the AtoZChallenge. I went with a TV show rather than a movie for that section today and my topic of choice is killing. Yes, morbid, I know :).

  • Thu, 16:00: Oh god, watching part of a vamp movie I've had on my watchlist, while taking a quick break - dialogue is sooooo bad!
  • Thu, 16:00: Glad to go back to writing!
  • Thu, 16:05: Oh my, the gathering of vampires looks like a meeting of vamp soc at uni :) Really am going back to work now.
  • Thu, 18:18: Oh dear, I'm in trouble now. I sneezed, twice and Amber just got off the chair in a huff. #cats
  • Thu, 18:18: RT @Joliedupre: Folks, you're never going to get comments to your blog if you make people register in order to comment. Screw that! #atozc
  • Fri, 07:22: Saw @Welcome2Punch again last night. Still an awesome movie. Wish there was more.
