The Owl Has It


Well as previously blogged I had to have a go at crocheting the Owl and he turned out so cute!!

ImageMy OH Mr Hunky loves owls, so it was a bit of an impromptu present for him, and he loves it and said he is going to hang it in the car. Its a bit fiddly but only because you have to tie off and put the different colours in. I didnt have beads so I improvised and sewed in the eyes using black wool.

I definitely think a beginner could do this, as I have only been crocheting since January and although I have picked up the method very quickly, there are no complicated stitches in it at all! 🙂


Well last night I set up my daughters new Laptop, that we bought her to do her GCSE’s, her old one was a bit decrepit so decided it was time to give herself something that didn’t take 1/2 an hour to boot up lol.

Its got Window 8 on it. I found it a bit fiddly at first, but I realised its similar to my smart phone in a lot of ways, with all its app’s etc, and once I found out where all the important stuff was like the control panel etc, I was away! If your working from the desktop, it actually hasn’t changed that much. The start page takes some getting used to, but my Mac is all scrolly and whizzy anyway, so I got that straight away. Being 14 Moo Moo will love it.

I had exhausting, but very nice dreams last night *wiggles eyebrows* slightly red light district, but shows me that my brain is going in the right direction Re Mr Hunkys transition. Something I have been stressed about, but my subconscious is obviously a lot less worried than I am. I had a jolly nice time 😉 Still a take one day at a time, but that was very positive *nods*.

Not up to much today with lots of rain, get to get locusts for the Trinity beardy and feed the boys and go shopping, boy I lead an exciting life! I might make another owl lol. Go me! 🙂


About silvermaneuk

Known as Nicky Turner-Sterling at school, and married and became Field. Got divorced, now Turner-Sterling again. Married to Kristopher and kept my maiden name. Nicknames are Betty, Knickers or Nicky. I am a mom to 3 great kids. I have been diagnosed with CFS/ME & Fbromyalgia and I also have neurological problems. I am registered disabled. So I have good days and bad days. Sometimes really bad days, where I cant get out of bed. But I try not to let it hold me back, I have to work with my limitations, but after a long period of being bedridden I finally got back to working albeit part time. I seem to be constantly on a diet lol. I love photography, I love my computers, and often create digital art on it. I love to read, and I love to listen to music, passionate about photography. I love to travel and look at beautiful places.I love to mooch around shops (especially the £1 shop lol) and stuff. I love to bake and cook. Love my animals, have 4 small dogs,4 cats and 1, 8 year old pony. Spirit is my best friend, I trained him, so I could ride him for physio therapy, and trained him so I could ride with as low impact as possible. Riding helps my pelvis and hips. When I dont ride it affects my gait, and I can hardly walk, so it is an excellent form of physio therapy for me. It can also make me flare badly, so I have to get the balance right. He's bitless, barefoot and treeless, he really looks after me, and makes it possible for me to have my dream, and he gave me hope again. If my physio hadn't encouraged to to try horse riding for therapy, I probably would still be bedridden. A disabled rider can do it, with the right tools! and pace pace pace! I can talk the hind leg of a donkey and snore for England. I get bored very quickly, which means I tend to flit from one thing to another, or do more than one thing at once lol.
