Alternate Disco

      No Comments on Alternate Disco

Today, we received a text message from the school that the school disco that was supposed to occur tonight was cancelled. We were sad — Smallhausen loves going to the school discos. But apparently, last night there were plenty of Friends who were signed up for it, and suddenly none this morning. Rude. So instead, Smalls came home and announced… Read more »

Back From the Pub

      1 Comment on Back From the Pub

I return in one piece from our second Pins & Needles session. Last time wasn’t a fluke — this was also an enjoyable time. I spent most of it yawning, because apparently I relax when I’m out and that means almost falling asleep on myself. Whups. I had three pints of Coke though, so that sort of helps me fight… Read more »

‘Normal’ Passing

      No Comments on ‘Normal’ Passing

If there is one thing that is probably universal with spoonies, it’s the having to be ‘normal’ passing. As tomorrow is Pins & Needles, that means me making the effort to have a proper bath, clean hair and all that. It’s exhausting at the best of times, and recovering from this cold is noooot the best of times. Today was… Read more »

My Night in Pictures

      3 Comments on My Night in Pictures

The tl;dr is that I thought that my cold was getting better, and I was very wrong. *chuckles* Well. I accidentally managed to trigger the worst vertigo I have experienced since moving here by trying to pop my ears, and it’s a small miracle that: A.  I actually made it to the toilet, and B.  That I didn’t actually vomit… Read more »

What Smells?

      No Comments on What Smells?

Hint: it’s not me. Well. I’m not *able* to smell right now. It has its benefits, like not knowing when someone has laid a stinky present in the house, or having to smell the Lemsip (think Theraflu) when I’m drinking it down, but still. It’s a very annoying phase of the cold. I’m hoping that smelling comes back tomorrow, but… Read more »

Not Impressed

I know I’ve been nursing a cold forever, but today has just gone into rude overdrive. I’ve hit this point where not only am I wheezing, I’m wheezing to the point of chest pain. And like, I don’t wheeze with colds; Z says it’s a normal thing, but it isn’t for me. He’s been a dear above his normal being… Read more »

I’m not the biggest coffee person these days, but I’m glad that it’s cold enough to properly enjoy one. I checked The Weather Channel, and it says the highs are going to be in the 50s all week, and the lows in the 40s. I guess autumn is here to stay (not that I’m complaining). I’m glad for it, if… Read more »

With an Inch to Spare

      No Comments on With an Inch to Spare

I have just spent the last (feels like) forever getting the shawl casted off, but it’s done now! I suspect that the last few inches are a bit tighter in cast off tension if only for the fact that I realised I was almost out of wool. I’m not completely sure how I managed to pull it off, but there… Read more »

I have spent all evening processing the wool I came home with yesterday. And by processing, I mean entering everything into a spreadsheet, because I’m that big of a nerd. But now I know exactly what there is with only one or two question marks, and there’s a lot of goodness in there. there’s also some degree of faffy wools… Read more »

I Have to Give the Bag Back

      No Comments on I Have to Give the Bag Back

One of our newer Stitch ‘n Bitch members, K, was getting rid of some of her wool today. Apparently, this required a Royal Mail bag full, and then a bit more. I made some weak-ass excuses and shoved it into my car. What’s more, everyone who was there when the wool was still in the pub seemed to keep mum… Read more »
