Temperatures in Madrid usually rise into the 40s (Celsius) in August here in Madrid, and people vacate the city, as it takes on nearly a post-apocalyptic feeling. But this year, the heatwave started in June, and in my case it is part impossible to do any computer work because it gets too hot, even with the new cooling pad underneath; and closing all the blinds and sitting in the dark on a beautiful albeit hot day has to be one of the most depressing things I can think of, even if it is 40 degrees in the shade, and the tarmac is sizzling.

[ad_1] I have just sent an email to those of you in the first minigenue batch; short version: public holiday on Monday and I leave on ass-o'clock tuesday, plus still missing several essential supplies (including time and working hands) to be able to complete the dolls,...

When it rains, it pours, right? So all my plans to start sanding this morning were derailed when I found a baby swift in the patio. A protected species that would have become a cat toy if it wasn't for the fact that it is...
