What’s Hot + What’s Not

December 2, 2009

I love reading all the Hot + Not lists, there’s something so appealing about them, so I’m joining in with Loobylu – head over there for more lists and to sign up!


I’m getting more painting done – the bathroom ceiling is done now, and the room looks so much brighter for it. I like the paint splotches on my fingers.

The new front door is being installed as I type. I’m going to paint it tomorrow.

I know I already mentioned The Gone Away World, and how brilliant it was, but I’m still thinking about it, so I’m saying it again.

There are 3 big boxes of stuff ready to go to Vinnies this afternoon.

I haven’t had a coffee for one month! The aim is to go 6 weeks without it so as to get it entirely out of my system, then only have it once in a while. Last time I tried to quit, about 5 years ago, 2 days into it I had headaches so bad I couldn’t stand up. I also cried. I don’t know what I’ve done right this time, but I’ve barely missed it and my energy levels have balanced out a lot. Hurrah!

I’ve decided to make plum jam for Christmas presents (don’t tell), with little linoprinted tags.

I have Andrew Bird tickets! I Love Andrew Bird. I would marry him today, should he ask. He whistles and sings with a voice like golden sunshine. Also, he is incredibly Hot. Plus his name is Andrew Bird. That has to be one of the best names ever. I am swooning in anticipation.


I saw New Moon last night. It was terrible. So bad it was funny. Thanks heavens I’d had a Margarita beforehand, otherwise I might not have lasted the distance.

My cat’s been losing lots of weight, apparently due to an overactive thyroid. Not uncommon among elderly cats. Now we need to give him a pill a day forever and ever amen. He’s really bad with pills.

My feet are cold.


I’ve just put some socks on.

Here’s another picture of Andrew Bird.

    I am guessing by those dirty gumboots and the windswept hair that Andrew Bird is a man of the land, am I right ? It would totally explain why he has a voice like golden sunshine (I love that description).

    Thanks guys, yep, he is in fact a man of the land (he has a farm) and a man of the city (he lives part of the time in Chicago, where he grew up), so I think he has the best of both worlds.
    There was nothing exciting in those Vinnies boxes, Redness, so you didn’t miss out!

    Clearing out some stuff and giving to Vinnies is good to do. De-cluttering always is HOT! Chele x

    I LOVE ANDREW BIRD TOO!! (sorry for the shouting, it just seemed an appropriate response!) …

    I think if I wasn’t already spoken for with a lovely husband of my own, that I would also marry Andrew Bird in a heartbeat… he is wonderful and his voice is like goosebumps down the spine – delicious and quite magical… ๐Ÿ˜€

    I hope your cat goes OK with the pill-taking… it sounds like your cheese idea is a WINNER!!
