*puts down the sewing*

If you ever take it into your head to sew a stripe down the sleeves of a hoodie, don't. I've been doing it since not long after Doctor Who finished and I'm only about two-thirds of the way up the first sleeve. I keep having to unpick it because the odd stitch catches through the sleeve or it goes wonky or it just isn't quite working. It's infuriating. Even if we had a sewing machine (we did once, lent to a friend of my mother's about ten years ago and not seen since), I'm no good with the things and I find it much easier to sew by hand. I'm too tired by now and I've been staring at teeny-weeny stitches for about three hours and I'll pick it up again tomorrow and try to have it finished by next weekend.

Up to episode ten of Boardwalk Empire. Oh, and I watched Doctor Who and I feel I should react to it but I'm too cross-eyed right now.
phantym_56: (life on mars strange dreams)
1) I'm not entirely sure how I'm getting Life on Mars or Doctor Who into this epic of mine, but so far, I'm getting on okay with the Top Gear, Primeval, Torchwood and Robin Hood parts. We'll see if I finish it and if it's any good before I decide to post it. But I was checking up on some stuff the other day when I got distracted by:

2) Life on Mars transcripts. I did them last year and I'm doing them again this year. I meant to start weeks ago and keep up with it as I went along, but my supply of DVDs from home was somewhat sporadic and I had essays. I have exams after the holidays so I guess I'll have to have them done by then. Series One and eps 1 and 2 of Series Two are finished though, and I'm halfway through ep 3 and they can be found at When they're all done and all linked, I'll announce it in [community profile] lifein1973 . But they take a full day each to do and I'm not spending all day every day on it. But they'll all be done before the end of April, I promise.

16/04 - S2E3, S2E4 and S2E5 finished.

24/04 - S2E6 uploaded

24/04 - The site doesn't seem to be working. I have no idea why but I really hope it's only temporary. Sometimes it's accessible at so try that.
