Double Ouch

Smalls, on the subject of her sister: ‘She keeps falling over because she’s so happy.’ Which is to say, when Smalls knocked on the door upon getting back from school, she was followed by a bleeding sister being carried by Z. It turns out she’d taken out her knees on the way to school, and her lip on the way back…. Read more »

Ticking Along

      No Comments on Ticking Along

Today has been for staring blankly, with a small side of knitting. Doing the travelling cable makes the whole thing feel like it’s working up really quickly. So even if I haven’t done much today (and let’s be honest, I haven’t), it feels like I did? Good enough, ha ha. But eh, it’s Sunday, so it’s not like I have… Read more »

In the Spirit

The girls went over to their grandparent’s house today for their usual Saturday playdate — and to decorate the tree. I took a couple of pictures, and then ended up photoshopping these two together because I thought it was super-cute. But then, with such subject matter, super-cute is pretty easy to obtain! Other than that, I’ve done a fairly spectacular… Read more »

Purr Joy

One of the things I knew Miss Poison would miss about the old couch was being able to hide her head. I don’t know why she finds that especially comfortable, but as you can see, it seems to put a smile on her face (though she’s usually tucked further under the pillow). I’m just happy that we accidentally recreated that… Read more »

I spotted this van outside of the surgery, and about died laughing. The acronym stands for ‘All About Health’, but seeing something shouting AAH at me outside a doctor’s office is just. Well, see subject line. Ded. xD And why, you might ask, was I out to see this? It was Littler’s nativity production. It was blessedly short, for both… Read more »

Slowly Slowly

I spent today pretty much blobbing out to the eXtreme. I always get hopeful that I won’t be super wiped from doing a weekend event, but obviously, wrong on that count again. *chuckles* I mean, the thing I spent most of the day doing was trying to figure out where my cable needle ended up; after several hours and one… Read more »

Requisite Sock Monster

Is I, Socky, rawr rawr rawr! Which is to say, I’ve turned the heel and started down the foot of the sock. It’s going faster than I thought it would, but that’s probably because I’m not doing poppies at the same time, and because having something to do (ie, the travelling cables) makes it feel like it’s going faster. Having… Read more »

Did the Thing Again

And, alas, it was not terribly successful. That was pretty universal across everyone who was there, for which the organiser apologised. We were supposed to be last weekend, but apparently, got bumped after the date was already published in various locales. I’m still probably going to do the one at the end of January, but we’ll see when that time… Read more »
