What belongs to such as these

I am a slogger, as per a term coined by the wonderful Miss Behaving. This is to say a painfully slow blogger in a fast-moving stream. I move at a turtle's pace in the real world too.

Lately I have been out of words and out of sorts. It has been a hectic whirlwind season around Chaos HQ.

I have been meaning to write this post for days. I have also been meaning to crawl out from this pile of washing and put my life back into some kind of order. But these things, like most things, will have to wait until mañana.

All kids deserve to get the vaccines they need. As part of their No Child Born To Die campaign, Save the Children is campaigning for this ahead of a London vaccine conference this June. They are sending a trio of bloggers out on the vaccine trail and circulating a petition. You can add your support to the cause here. And your artwork.

Performance artist. 
Kirsty of Imperfect Pages tagged Chaos HQ in a self-portraiture linky back in the mists of the early Cretaceous, and Claire of PR Mummy has just done so too (thanks guys). So here is Ali self-portraiting in the medium of chocolate cake batter.

Followed by two portraits that the girls took of each other.

Destruction on Chaos. 
Chaos on Destruction.
I think each managed to capture her sister/fiercest rival quite well.

The camera, you may be pleased to know, isn't actually caked in batter now (although it was a close call). It is a bit late to be tagging other bloggers in this circular, but please consider this an open invitation to take part in the linky, #passiton and sign the petition if you haven't already done so.

In other news, we here at Chaos HQ would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to your interknitting journey by a lack of posting in recent weeks. I blame the wrong kind of leaves on the blog.

But I hereby promise to resume normal posting and life - whatever that means - soon.

  2. Ah you are fab! I know how hard it can be when the washing is piling high and one generally likes to do things "tomorrow"... but you did it! Yay! You joined the linky and with a fabulous contribution (love the cake making! yay!). Nice photo skills! I am embarking on a photo project with my 3yrs old this week! Results will be interesting!

    Thank you so much for taking part and supporting Save The Children and this meme!

  8. Great blog Rachel. Love the chocolate cake photo! Brings back memories of mum letting me scrape the bowl when cooking. Just wanted to say thank you from Save the Children for highlighting the important vaccine summit on 13th. Millions of children's lives depend on it.

  12. Slogger. Love that. Some days, well weeks, you just don't have it. And that's okay, I like to think those are the resting days, days when we're brewing ideas and creativity in our heads while the laundry spins.

    Thanks for the vaccination link. I am stealing it! Vaccines, prevent children from getting sick. Let's make it happen.
