from a previous post, with some additions...

I'm Starling, an introvert, bookworm and nature lover from England. I dabble in and I'm a fan of most things and .

My include and . I'm also a lover of and , specifically .

Also fond of stories with happy endings.πŸ™‚

I've got no idea what's going on with the internet today. I give up!

Internet problems this morning, apparently. Some sites are loading, others not. At least Mastodon/Octodon is still working.πŸ™‚β€‹

Aww! Just heard the gate rattling and went to investigate, and found a pair of hedgehogs snuffling around the garden!πŸ™‚β€‹πŸ¦”β€‹πŸ¦”β€‹

Apparently, I'm blind. I didn't see that the character limit here on Octodon had gone up to 2222. I like it!

I mean, the likelihood of me writing an essay-like toot is pretty low, but it could happen!πŸ˜…β€‹

My first ready-to-ship yarn is in my Etsy shop! Hi Summer! is based on an artists’ trading card I made years ago, reminding me of warm summer days spent tie dyeing in the grass. Link in profile! 🧢

The sky is noisy today! Sounds like we've got a big RAF plane doing sky-donuts in the air up there. Given that there's an airbase not too far away from where I am, they're probably training.πŸ™‚β€‹

The original comes to this week! Love the spritework on Marilith, and the Fledgling Warrior looks good, too!πŸ™‚β€‹

Now to build up the collection again. Might be aiming for FFXIV characters this time...πŸ™‚β€‹

So... I may have gone back to Record Keeper. Glad to see it still had my old data in there, too - still got my favourites! Also, it's nice to have an all-SOLDIER party.πŸ™‚β€‹

Oh! With this new update, we can draw things on here, too! This is a lovely feature!πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Wasps! 

Spent a good hour or so this morning trying to help fix a gap in the summerhouse door because wasps were trying to get in. Managed it, but not without lots of glue, bits of draught excluder, and a piece of sponge as a temp fix. Hopefully the wasps got the message!

These are some of the biggest blueberries I've seen in a while! I don't think our blueberry bush will give us anything like these (thank you, Aldi!), but I'm hopeful of a small crop, at least!πŸ™‚

Also, achievement unlocked - survived Monday!πŸ†

I see Twitter is all atwitter (I think that's a word) with the latest set sighting. Should be interesting to see what's confirmed!

Monday is dragging... Need something to pick me up, so I can get through to this evening.

I'll bribe myself with chocolate if I have to!πŸ˜…

Rightio, time to log off for the night. Got to be ready for any shenanigans that Monday might throw at me.πŸ™‚

As someone who loves piano versions of battle themes, this one took me by surprise! 's very own Duel! theme, four-handed version. 🎹 πŸ™‚
