i was really hoping to do some fic writing, but other stuff happened instead. Can't be too mad, quite a chunk of them were tapping on my creative side, but i really was hoping i had enough get-it-togetherness to knock out a sentence or two.
still jaundiced though getting much better, and with it more tetchy with the medical regiment. she's not appreciative, let's just put it that way.
Valentine present to myself was the arrival of the baby alpaca, angora and 18mc merino fibres from World of Wool. The standout of that isn't actually the wooly goodness, it's the fact that I've been going to the post office often enough to pick up my deliveries that the PO staff recognised me enough to comment that I'm looking rounder (and I am!). I didn't even mind the topic more than the YIKES SHE HAS RECOGNISED ME. anyway she cracked up because she commented because she's been trying to gain weight apparently and i'm like we can go to a doctor and work out a transfer plan.

random workshop update
this weekend i went for a charcoal still life workshop, and i'm quite pleased with my efforts, since it's my first time doing anything with charcoal. i've always avoided the medium, but maybe i should give it a try. in this line of art, i'm even more noob, but i do like colouring in gouache/acrylic, so i wonder how that goes with charcoal.
turns out if you're a makeup wearer it gives you an advantage thanks to all those hours of blending and contouring.
Also, went to a CNY open house so got to lou sang with friends after all.
