Cute as a…

      No Comments on Cute as a…

Because of the girls, my desk tends to have a random assortment of hair accessories on it. So when I needed to clip my hair back and the first thing I saw was one of Smaller’s bows? Well, in it went. Totally me, innit? *laughs* I probably confused the heck out of the Amazon delivery when I answered the door… Read more »

Getting Steamy

      No Comments on Getting Steamy

Z was mulling his kitchen cleaning strategy last night, and decided to check out steam mops. I pointed out that they could work as a carpet steamer as well, so he found one that ticked both boxes. We only prodded it on the edge of the kitchen carpet (which we’re now discussing replacing), but peeled it back so we could… Read more »

Coming Along

      No Comments on Coming Along

Z busted out the vacuum to attack the foyer, and ended up parking it with me so I could de-hair it. As the sheddingest person in the house, I cheerfully volunteer for that chore, because it’s only fair. After removing more hair than is actually on my head (whups <__<), I ran it around ‘my’ side of the lounge. I… Read more »

Slow Progress

      No Comments on Slow Progress

I finally managed to rub some spoons together and get a few bits of tidying done. It’s nowhere near where I/we want it to be, but it’s a start. Z has made a lot of progress jiggering things around, which I am super impressed by. He’s even gotten Smalls to help him out, which is excellent. I’m hoping that I… Read more »

Shall Be My Queen

      No Comments on Shall Be My Queen

It’s knitting tonight, and a part of my self-care regime for going out and peopling has been making the effort to paint my nails. Today’s colour is another one from a-england — Shall Be My Queen. It looks a lot pinker online than it does in person, though apparently I see it redder than other people in meatspace. Whatever, I… Read more »

Find the Stealthbutt

      No Comments on Find the Stealthbutt

Today’s stealthbutt was once again generated to annoy Smalls. She told me off today for being cheeky, and I quote, ‘I’m trying to make you a proper person!’. I love this kid, y’all. *laughs* I appreciate her attempting to use her own reasoning to figure out right, wrong, and cheeky, and I don’t hold it against her that she applies… Read more »

View From the Chair

      No Comments on View From the Chair

It’s the last day of the half-term holiday, so we’ve all been gaming for all we’re worth. Z has been playing ‘Cowboy Skyrim’ (aka ‘Red Dead Redemption II’), and I’m poking along in My Time in Portia, which means an extensive view of the back of my character’s head as she runs around doing the things. I’ve not even picked up my… Read more »

In Repose

      No Comments on In Repose

We spent all day chilling out at Z’s parents’ house, snacking and watching football, chatting about this and that. Mum got hit with snapshots from my world view, things she hadn’t had any reason to think about, but now she’ll consider (like women of colour being more likely to die in childbirth due to not being taken seriously, see Beyonce,… Read more »
