Welcome friends, Romans, bumders. This is the spot for all my personal musings and random trash that doesn't fall into the fiction category. (Which the Starscream Collection is now for.)


Now, go steal me fresh jams.

RIP Stiny

RIP 30 March 2016


We found Stiny on the bottom of the cage. We don't know what happened, as she was fine not long before making her usual noises and being herself.

She's been with me for so long, I don't know how I'm going to manage without her.

I miss her so much already. So does her mate Steve.

Brandon Paul Martin

So, my sister has (Finally) given birth to a baby boy. Brandon Paul Martin was born at ten to 3 in the afternoon today and was 7 lbs on the dot.

(The weird thing is, he looks just like me when I was a baby! Haha. Only I had more hair and it was jet black.)

Had Bad News

So, I found out today that my sister (Who is due to give birth to her first child in March) is in hospital with blood clots on the lung.

She's got large ovarian cysts (One is growing) and she's only just getting over a virus that some nice asshat decided to pass on after visiting while having a cold (Despite people being asked not to since her anti-D injection has lowered her immune system) and now this.

Apparently the night in question (3/4 days ago) she was really struggling to breathe and so she ended up at the hospital. And due to stress from not being able to breathe right she almost had the baby.

2016 sure has been a joyful year so far, hm?


So they did some scans and didn't find any clots in her legs, thank the gods. Which means she won't have to have the painful leg jabs. But she's still on oxygen in the HDU because she still can't breathe properly. They want to keep her in the HDU too just in case the baby gets distressed again.

[Update #2]

She was moved from the place she was at to a different ward, but was still in isolation so as not to get another bout of this nasty bug that's going around. Apparently the hospital is struggling to keep it at bay.

She's off oxygen now, but is still having injections (For the clots in her lungs) in her belly and is covered in bruises apparently and very sore.

[Update #3]

So today I logged in to find a post on FB by my bro-in-law who was yay-ing about the fact that they are actually letting her go home. I am surprised, since I have had friends who have had blood clots and they've been in much longer. Surprised, but happy. At least she'll be able to get some proper sleep now she's in her own house in her own bed again.

It sounds like she'll be having a long course of these drugs though, as expected. I know that depending on how severe the clots are it can be 30 weeks or longer. I'm hoping it's not as bad so she doesn't have to go through that for so long.

Just A Small Update

Got back from Cambridge on Saturday after a week visiting extended family. My wrists are stinging inside like crazy which stinks. I was really hoping to get more work done on the queue of trades and commissions I have, but it's looking likely that...
