Open Roads

      No Comments on Open Roads

Z and I headed off early this morning to do another round of couch investigation… so early. I’d only had my first round of caffeine early, ha ha. But it ended up being a worthwhile trip, and we ended up with another contender for purchasing. I think it might be *the* one, but we need to discuss it after thinking… Read more »

Okay, Sure

Batman has been super needy lately. We’re not sure why, but we’re doing our best to up his cuddle quota. This is the first time he’s hopped up on the back of my current chair, and yes, it was his roundabout way of eventually trying to get into my lap. I gave him a good cuddle, because he was obviously… Read more »

Um, Whups

I ended up running my hand knits through the washer and dryer… and accidentally included this particular garment. To say it’s a bit mangled and shrunk is understating the case, ha ha. I’ve managed to stretch some of it back out, but I think that the proper treatment is going to be to reblock it… and make sure my dumbass… Read more »

Butt Testing, Redux

      No Comments on Butt Testing, Redux

We went down to the retail park today to sit on more sofas. We didn’t find ‘the one’, but we got more data in general to aid us in our quest to find the right sofa. At current, the winner continues to be one we saw at the first shop, but we haven’t discussed what our plans are for the… Read more »

Emergency Poppies

E messaged me last night and asked if I could help crank out some last minute poppies. J had asked for some for the Cubs to use… tonight. So like, I think it was 25 he needed. By tonight. That… that’s not going to happen, ha ha. I’m still trying to make a few before we got out tonight… though… Read more »

Cheerfully Dishevelled

I am currently in that content state that comes from being in comfortable clothing and comfortable surroundings, built atop a nice full belly. While it was a bit warmer today, it’s cooling off nicely, and I’m in that state where I’m neither too warm, nor too cool. In short, is good, yes yes. I had a wee moment earlier when… Read more »

Waiting for Collection

      No Comments on Waiting for Collection

Our bin collection day was yesterday… it was not collected. It still hasn’t been collected, but at least it’s our street and not just us. Z and I suspect that a truck broke down yesterday and that they are making up the village as they can atop their normal routes, but we’ll see what happens. And Z might be able… Read more »

Maximum Chill

      No Comments on Maximum Chill

Today was a delightful day off. I curled up under my blanket and avoiding movement, and even got a bit of knitting done (as well as reading through my most recent issue of my knitting magazine). It amuses me to realise how cold 20C (68F) is without the brunt of summer to back it up, but I’m not complaining. I… Read more »
