You might have fertility problems if you keep sitting that way.

Rebecca told me off the other day for not updating this enough. And she is right, I should be more prolific. But sometimes there is just nothing to say that is of any interest.

However, there has been some stuff happening. House buying trundles on, work stuff trundles on and on Thursday, that is, the day after tomorrow, we shall be off to gay Pariiiiiiiiiiiiiis!

Quite looking forwards to Paris, never been to France apart from to pass through it on the way to somewhere else European on a train at a very young age. All those years of French class at school might pay off, even if only to say parly voo en glay to a snooty Parisian person. As long as we remember deux bieres sil vous plait, we should be just dandy.

Just checking the weather forecast and it is forecast to snow in Paris at the end of the week – now snow here, I love, snow in Paris, I may die of excitement. How romantique! Although, it should be said, we are not going for Valentines, just because it’s there and the
flights were dirty cheap.

Liverpool have just won, so that’s my queue to finish.

A bientot, mes amis!



I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
