All the Good Things (And Other Things)

      No Comments on All the Good Things (And Other Things)

Last night’s Christmas dinner was lovely. We knew that the food was excellent from last year, so it made it an easy pick for this year (and we’ve already said yes to coming back next year). E and I had a good old natter, we had a nice meal; it was what we probably both needed. Today… today started off… Read more »

Trying Not to Let My Brain Explode

Today’s picture comes to you compliments of tenacious snow-people shapes. It rained overnight and washed away most of the snow and ice, but there are still bits trying to cling on. It amused me to see three gardens in a row with shapes, so voila. Today’s subject line comes compliments of Mabel from Gravity Falls. While she was referring to… Read more »

All the Waiting

Today, I was waiting for a package being delivered by Hermes. The last week and change where we have had deliveries from them, they haven’t knocked on the door and we were starting to get a bit ticked. Then Z realised the doorbell batteries had gone flat again, and got those changed before Hermes showed up today. Lo and behold,… Read more »

3.75

The next point that I have to think about doing anything on this jumper is at 3 and 3/4 inches — 3.75, if you will. It’s currently at just about 3 inches; I should probably try to estimate how many rows more I need to go. I also need to remember that when I do the increase that the pattern… Read more »

When Weather Happens

Finally, the snow thing occurred. We woke up with a nice accumulation, and it was a fairly steady fall for most of the morning. We managed to get outside twice as a group for a bit of a play, so that was excellent. I’m probably going to pay for it, but. Even feeling like crap and not wanting to move,… Read more »

Deck the Halls

Z fished out the Christmas stuff today, and I ended up briefly decorating myself. This is a battery-powered string of lights, and Smalls has brought it over to me to put fresh batteries in. Since I didn’t know where Z wanted it, I wore it for a bit. Because why not. I have a friend who often goes out wearing… Read more »

Late Night Questing

Last night after knitting, E and I had to detour to the supermarket on the way home. We had run out of bread, so it’s like hi, I will pick one up, jazz hands, etc. We had a nice little wander, and I managed to avoid most impulse purchasing. I did pick up some cookies, but alas, they turned out… Read more »

She’s a Star

Today, we went to see the littlest in her first school Nativity. She was one of the kings/wise men, which amounted to standing there looking cute, and occasionally remembering to half-assedly join in with the songs. It wasn’t Shakespeare, but it definitely was cute. I commented to Z on the way home that I sort of wish we’d tried to… Read more »

It Begins

One of the houses in the village that went all out for Halloween has made a start on their Christmas decorations. If that’s what they want to do, then good on them — but I still roll my eyes slightly. While smiling. As said, to each their own, but it’s not for me personally. Doesn’t mean I’m going to disparage… Read more »

Too Many Unicorns

      No Comments on Too Many Unicorns

Today, my companion Smalls complained that I have too many unicorns, and that I was greedy. Let’s see — I made one unicorn, the red thing is a mooshroom, Fluffy was a Christmas gift, and kittencorn is only half a unicorn (and the only one I bought anyways). I was amused though — I do love my plush goodness. And… Read more »
