The purpose of Satire, it has been rightly said, is to strip off the veneer of comforting illusion and cosy half-truth - and our job, as I see it, is to put it back again. Flanders & Swann
This is not the journal you're looking for...
The journal you might be looking for is The Eternal Magpie. That's where I talk about sewing and knitting and all the pretty things I'm making at the moment. For convenient LJ purposes there's also a feed: eternal_magpie. It doesn't tell me when there are comments though, so sometimes I miss things.
This is my personal journal, which is mostly filled with me whingeing about being ill, and what I'm currently attempting to do about it. It's not terribly interesting.
I used to be Claire Harrison, then I spent 12 years being Claire Wain, and as of October 2009 I'm Claire Smith. I plan to stay that way.
