Kodi is such a sweety <3

Reminds me of when I came home from a trip and all my clothes were pulled under the bed but my hoody was on top of it. Red on one side and grey on the other, we have a red girl and a black and white boy, they slept on it for a week until I returned.
They pull our socks and towels and clothes under the bed or couch when we don't look. So cute, but it is annoying when you're trying to find a matching pair of socks and realise half of them are under the couch still and haven't been washed...

Sorry that I haven’t posted in the past week and a bit. I’ve been really busy with my university work and on top of that I was at the London Book Fair last week. Which was awesome! But left me with little internet connection and even littler energy after…

Sweet video.
We always put them on our lap upside down and then cover them until their armpits with their fav blanket. This helps them to not flail too much and since we only need to do the front paws it is doable.
They don't enjoy it, but they get used to it and don't mind after a while, especially when you do it once a week (not always cutting nails, but just checking sometimes) and there are always treats involved.


For us it's just part of the process of having a cat. We love roughhousing with them and sure, they will use their claws to catch us. So cutting their claws is to protect us, our things and to protect them from accidentally hurting each other.

Nope Nope Nope. No more #elderscrollsonline ( #ESO #esobeta   ) for me...

Stupid thing keeps requiring me to re-install the game after having closed it over 2 hours...

Yesterday I thought it might have been because I had an earlier version and they required a clean install for the new beta event.

I just tried to boot the game again... I click "play" and then the button changes to "install".
I check my harddrive and I'm back to having 75gb free space, instead of the 30gb after a ESO install.

Yeah, played for about an hour or so yesterday, maybe a bit more, but this stops me from playing again anywhere this weekend. I refuse to install a game (which takes about 2 to 3 hours) each time I want to play for a short while...

I'm gonna re-make this. I wore it at the London Book Fair and remembered how awesome it is. So, since I can't seem to find the pattern any more, I'm gonna have to make-do with the bracelet and some notes I took photos of years ago...

Not all gay books are about romance and Black Sheep is one of those books. The story is rough and fast paced. Readers have said that they wanted to both throw the book across the room and cuddle it close.

Black Sheep: Letting go of the Past

When Vic comes out of the psychiatric hospital his mother has moved the whole family away from his home town, where his last relationship almost ended in tragedy. Vic, glad at being able to start anew, decides to only focus on school work, no dating, no boyfriends, no drama. His plan is go get through these last two years and move onto university.
That plan is sabotaged when his new best friend, Jack, kisses him on New Year's Eve, something Vic has been longing for and dreading in equal measure. Because he's scared sweet and innocent Jack won't be able to handle him, or his past. It scares him more than anything now that his past has come to haunt him, metaphorically and literally.
Vic tries to hide the depression and panic as long as possible, from Jack, from his family and from himself. But horrors have a way of catching up with people and when Vic's past catches up with him it isn't just him that gets hurt.
Can Vic trust Jack enough to tell him what is going on? Has he finally found someone who isn't scared of him?

  It’s that time of the year again, April’s fools, yes, but also NaNo time!! I like NaNo time, it helps me connect with many awesome people from all over the world. NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, which is an event where you write…

In any case, good luck! :)

Exactly. It's not about selling books to readers; I suppose its about meeting publishers and raising our author brand awareness. Exciting/Scary
