Welcome To My Blog!!
Thank you so much for making it!
After traumatising TSR with countless threads of mantids eating honey, I feel I should start making a blog for me and the little guys
Of course, this is going to be the usual jazz~
I will be posting photos, writing poems (I do love writing poems ), sharing positive tips and tricks I learn and talking about day to day life and giving ,not just me, but the team a rating for the week!
Short term goals:
Seeing as life is slightly upside down at the moment, I want to set some simple things I would like to get done:
1. Make a news diary of geographical events for the year! It sounds a good plan!
2. Make a few cakes! I can get quite lazy over baking but I am going to conquer my clumsiness and take on the kitchen! Note to self: If you are on a zoom meeting while cooking you make a disaster, not brownies :K:
3. Finish crocheting my orchid mantis for my mum's birthday and write up the pattern neatly!!
4. Try and do a version of Inktober but now because I can't wait that long! (I will post my attempts here ).
5. Wear. Your. Glasses!!!
5. Keep my animal crossing island in check! This will mainly be in the New Horizons thread though, so if you want to see I highly suggest you click right here:

Long term goals:
1. Get good A Level grades and do a degree in zoology, so I can get my dream job researching and studying wildlife and bugs at The Natural History Museum!
2. Get over my phobia of injections and the dark. Seriously, they are quite impractical!
3. Possibly get back into acting again. I used to be an extra in Disney films and did a lot of adverts but I gave it up because I didn't want to miss my first day of year seven. Oof :pinch:
4. Create a mantid empire! I'm going to need some more honey for this one :")
5. Help as many people on the way as I can! This one is going to be great
6. Try and be more optimistic, see the world in a less stressful light.
7. Get back older hobbies like fencing and horse riding...

But enough of me rambling! Let's give it a whirl!!!

Spoiler:
Show
I just want to say a HUGE thankyou to all those who have already joined me! It means a lot and I cannot wait to see you all around!!

Yay! I'll be posting updates on them quite a lot Smaug gets a bit confused why there is a huge camera in his face, so if he looks grumpy or jumps away frantically you know what happened

Day 1:
First day! Whoohoo
has been quite a quite day, but there have been lots of bugs around! I woke up at 7am to see my mum off to work and began doing some geography work...but procrastinating a lot Lapis is the only mantid awake still so I'll have to share an update of them later on!
On the dog walk today I had lots of success in the forest! There were so many flower legged beetles and even some younger shield bugs. The green cucumber spider which I found yesterday was still chilling on the leaf so I took a couple of extra photos of him. There were slightly less bees and much more wasps today though, so we'll have to hope the lil bumbles don't get scared away
