Goodbye, May

      No Comments on Goodbye, May

Yeah, I did that to our calendar. I did it part-way through the month, so Z was assuaged to find out he’d only ‘missed’ it for a week rather than three. *laughs* It’s been a busy month, by my reckoning. I saw family, I saw friends. Eurovision happened, which is always a real risk to my sleep health (but still… Read more »

The buttons I ordered for the little cardi came in today. And yeah, they’re huge in comparison to the garment that they’re going onto, but I wanted it that way. After all, they’re purely decorative; they’ll be sewn over snaps. I figured that going for a bigger button should make it easier to attach it to the cardi without getting… Read more »

Bricking It

      No Comments on Bricking It

Miracle of miracles, the girls detached themselves from their tech to play with Legos together. It didn’t last long, and I think the running squabble when they were putting them up lasted longer than the time they played with the Legos… but it was cute to see them doing it, whatever the case. My focus has been shite today, which… Read more »

Gray Sky Undawning

      No Comments on Gray Sky Undawning

Today has carried with being a bit cooler, a bit rainy, a bit overcast. I didn’t get another thunderstorm like last night (as titchy as that was). As long as the air continues to stay on the cool and fresh side of life, I am going to be a happy kittencorn. Otherwise, it’s been a day. The girls were pretty… Read more »

Today has been a few degrees cooler, and it really feels like it. It’s nice to be able to layer up slightly, because I like the sensation of it. There’s supposed to be some rain overnight as well, so hopefully that will keep things pleasant. The results of the EU elections came in shortly after I went to bed, and… Read more »

Never Ending Knit Equation

      No Comments on Never Ending Knit Equation

I have done next to bugger all today, which really, perfection. I’ve done a little work on the cardi, like finishing sewing the seams and waving in the ends. I’ve even got the hood part through the fiddly starting bits! But then, there’s like, nine inches of hood to make, which isn’t quite the same size as the cardi itself,… Read more »

In the House

Visitors! Fun! Et cetera! I took a turn feeding the young master, because he’s cute, and because it’s nice to be able to to help out friends with their progeny.  I think my girls have been bemused to see me go into full babeh-squishing mode. It’s also a bit of a delight that the gap between Smaller and babeh is… Read more »

It’s Golden

      No Comments on It’s Golden

The new polishes arrive bright and early yesterday morning, which meant that I could take them for a test run. Here’s a picture with a bit of the gold, which is growing on me. At first it seemed some weird combination of matte and shimmer, but the more I look at it, the less matte it seems. But also, that’s… Read more »

Did the Thing

It’s the European elections in the UK today. And while we ‘weren’t supposed’ to still be in the EU for them, I’m chuffing glad we are. I was happy and excited to vote — in part because we have a good chance of electing a Green party MEP in my area. We’ll see how it all falls out after the… Read more »

I’ve topped off a satisfactory day ‘at the office’ with a lovely bath. And it’s warm enough (20C/69F) that my hair is drying out in record time. Yeah yeah, I know that temp shouldn’t count as warm with the whole having come from Texas thing, but it runs warm here. *chuckles* Whatever the case, my head feels nice and fresh,… Read more »
