Come at Me, Tiny Bros

Smaller had the pleasant surprise of a play date, one that has been a good time for all parties involved (except the snail someone crushed on accident that I stepped in sock first… that fellow didn’t have a good time). The children were playing a game on the trampoline where they were bouncing people out of the circle in the… Read more »

Moo On

Today is Moo Cow Day, a holiday declared by the children… last year? I think it was last year. It’s on perma-repeat in my Google calendar so I won’t forget it, and that’s the important thing. The celebration of it has so far amounted to being permitted to bring soft toys downstairs to hang out, and Z is grabbing everyone… Read more »

Sunlit Lies

The girls decided there was more outdoor time… hrmph. I dawdled indoors long enough that I was tipped off to the fact that they wanted coats, which meant I made sure to get hoodied up before going out. I’m still in my hoodie; I’ve not gotten around to switching it out for my robe. My hair was wet, so I… Read more »

The childlings decided that we needed to knock off and go play outside again. I semi-grudgingly conceded; they asked during one of the few bits of joy I had in getting work done today, so I got them to give me a few to get that sorted out. It was a semi-decent temp out, but the wind was high. I… Read more »

Too Bright

The girls, bless ’em, have used up their squabble ration for the two weeks of holiday already. I ended up shooing them outside to play, because burn off energy, and lovely weather. After a few, they demanded that I come outside into natural light, insisting it was for my own good. Hrmph. *laughs* It wasn’t too bad. The new neighbour… Read more »

While I would maintain that my favourite flower are smellgood roses, I have almost as fond a place in my heart for tulips. And honestly, I don’t know why — it is what it is. But I guess that personal preferences are based on feels rather than logic, so. *chuckles* I’ve just always found the shapes and colours appealing. I… Read more »

Called Out

I had an unexpected trip this morning; I tripped over air and smashed my knees. Well, I tripped over *something* because the underside of one of my feet is really tender, but I’m not completely sure what. It had to either be the edge of the rug, or the little wooden divider between hall and lounge… probably that one. It’s… Read more »

You Wouldn’t

One of the many brilliant bits of The IT Crowd (amongst the bits that didn’t age terribly) is the piracy warning in the German cannibal episode. So after I fiddled the message on the fridge around to read ‘Nick a goat’, I ended up writing my own warning on why one shouldn’t steal a goat. I stashed it amongst the stuff… Read more »
