Where the Paintwork Ends

      No Comments on Where the Paintwork Ends

The roadworks in the village are proceeding nicely. The road is repaved to the end of our street, so that makes it less fussy to get in and out (or would if we had a working car, more on that in a mo). They had only done the road painting to that point when I was doing the school run,… Read more »

Nearly Party Time

      No Comments on Nearly Party Time

Tonight is the group meal for the Thursday knitting group. I’m looking forward to it, even if I have to surrender control to the rest of the world due to the car still being in need of repair. Mind, I trust J and E just fine on getting a lift there, and I don’t even mind the thought of having… Read more »

The Thing is Did! Done!

Today, I officially am caught up on work. So unless Z needs me to do something tomorrow, I’ll check things over again on Friday and that’ll do for the week. It’s a relief to be back to this point, and hopefully I can keep it up. We’ll see. December shouldn’t be too bad, but January… well. In less celebratory news,… Read more »

Jog On

      No Comments on Jog On

One of the annoying things in circular knitting is jogging. And no, not that jogging I avoid like the plague, but rather, stripes that don’t line up. There are a couple of different methods that are supposed to help eliminate the worst of that, and I applied one here when I changed colours. I’m only a few rows into the… Read more »

Tasting the Rainbow

Littler decided she wanted to curl up on me and ‘help’ me play Pokemon, so I figured I’d get a picture of her being my cute little cuddle buddy. She immediately started pulling faces, because that’s what she does now when she sees a camera. Ah well, it’s still cute. And, amusingly, matched my shirt. I didn’t notice that until… Read more »

Nearing the End…

I am nearing the end of the first ball of wool on this sweater — yay! I don’t know how many more rows i am going to be able to get out of the remaining red, but I’m going to get as many as possible out of it. I’m going to guess that it will do me another 2-3 rows,… Read more »

The Last Of

The other day, Z came in with a brimming vase of roses. He’d gone out to prune the bushes before the cold came, and there were still any number of buds still on. I was well pleased to have them, especially since our varieties of roses are all smellygood ones, and I do like the smell of rose. I have… Read more »

She Wasn’t Impressed

The camera app that came with my phone has an option where you can tap in the centre of the screen, and it will focus on whatever it’s centered upon. I was looking at Poison there and gave it a go, and came out with this overexposed hilarity. I mean, it does pick her out better than it would have… Read more »

Hair Yesterday

      No Comments on Hair Yesterday

It’s definitely hair yesterday, because it’s a pub bathroom over the shoulder picture of it. We don’t have any mirrors around the house that I can do this with, so I figured I might as well while I had access to one. I’ve realised that my hair has actually grown a bit longer than it usually cuts off at, and… Read more »

Phteven the Unicorn

Now, I didn’t expect much from a cheap Adopt-a-Unicorn toy, but I didn’t expect the latest incarnation of the Phteven meme. I mean, did the toy designer ever lay eyes on a horse before? Smalls called it adorable, which was sweet of her. Everything about it is so wonky that like… I don’t even know. *laughs* I’ve got it tucked… Read more »
