Tattoo inspiration, knitting and fears

Here I am, mildly panicking as the Blood and Thunder roller derby bootcamp looms this weekend...

On Friday evening I'm heading to Dublin with some of the most amazing ladies I have ever met for a weekend of learning and skating and hopefully awesome times! So I suppose I'll be offline until I'm home on Sunday.

Meanwhile, I've been finishing off a sloppy jumper, knitted up especially for camp...but I'm not sure I have room to pack it! Luggage fail!

Seeing my knitting needles has given me ink lust again...I clearly need a tattoo that looks like this ~~>

Mostly I'm all set to go, I have lists which I'm checking and re-checking.

Before I go I'm hoping the weather holds for me to get a couple of outdoor skates...this also hinges on my outdoor wheels finally arriving though.

Keep your fingers crossed ?!

dreadful days with bright moments

What a truly obnoxious day to be in my head.

Not helped by not being at training today, that makes me feel extra rotten.

I got tired of thinking and have made a little Etsy shop to cheer myself up.  Just one wee fascinator in there at the moment, but watch this space, there's lots more to follow

It's just another part of my shoe love I suppose?

*stepping away from the internet..........*

A hurdle passed

Training tonight was just awesome!

Ten minutes of hell to start
Chinese whispers in a pace line plus lots of practice on assists

I managed 25 laps in 5 minutes!

I don't know if it's the new wheels or the gym actually working...but...something works!

^ check out the new wheels, Mmmmm green awesome-ness!



I do love mermaids.
Infact, I'd love a creepy mermaid tattoo...something like this but drawn up by someone with actual talent rather than my idea of sketching lol


Music and madness

Last nights gym playlist boiled down to a pleasing mix of MSI, Calabresse and Die Cheerleader Die.

It got me through an hour and a half in any case.

I officially dislike arm bikes was the final conclusion of the evening.

I also dislike my stupid brain and this morning I managed to gouge a lump out of my arm.
Yes yes, self harm is bad blah blah blah.
Except it's not really. It's delightfully contained and most importantly it WORKS.
So don't frown on me, or feel sorry for me if you notice scratch marks on my arms. I'm dealing and venting...just breath a sigh of relief that I'm not taking it out on you or bothering you with my petty insecurities.

First little catnip mousey is complete...

Annnnd here is a cat battling pirate mousey, ARrrrrrr!


Cat knit

Calling knitters!

Check outBattersea dogs and cats home

Three easy knits you can make for your own furry friends, and make some extra for the puss cats waiting to find their furever homes!



Off to the gym tonight.

I hate the gym.

I am going for one reason and one reason only, to improve my skating. I just wish it didn't seem like such a chore.

All suggestions for motivational music for my playlist will be most gratefully received!

wheel wheel wheels

I'm falling into the trap of wheel love, because I keep listening to the wheel fanatics at practice.

Although I do just really like grippy wheels, so have started a small collection.

I'm currently rolling the Radar Cayman's that came with my R3's mixed on the diagonal with grey Fugitive pushers [89A].

I want to try a grippier set up while I'm STILL trying to feel secure enough with crossovers to not panic, so hello to these pretty green Radar Flat out wheels in 88A

You can never have too many wheels anyway, right?  Spares are always useful?

Nombie zombie nomskull cupcake

Oh yummy
Time to geek out with zombie movies and zombie cupcakes!


Awesome new derby panties

Can't wait to wear these, derby panties and fishnets rock so hard !

I decided it was time for a blog to bring my crafts and baking and derby love all in one place as they seem to be a bit scattered at the moment. So here we are,
