Two Like Glue

      No Comments on Two Like Glue

Tonight’s picture comes to you compliments of the girls being silly after dinner. I’m not sure whose idea it was out of the two of them, but they kept the up and down going for a good few minutes. And then Littler topped it off by walking over to me and trying to climb me like one of those climbing… Read more »

2.5 Years

After 2.5 years, the new curtains are finally up at both ends of the lounge. Z got them hung as part of a tidying project we’d assigned ourselves for this weekend, which was getting those up ,and getting rid of some of the toys under the desk that the girls hadn’t played with in years. We found some missing stuffed… Read more »

Z needed to go to the garden centre to get some weedkiller, and as is his wont on a weekend, he’d planned to take the girls along so they had an outing. To our mutual satisfaction, I was feeling up to coming along and helping herd the kids, if only just. We also wanted to look at the garden sheds,… Read more »

Smallhausen has a lot of fear-anxiety in her. It’s something that we as her parents understand, because it’s a problem we have as well. The only difference is that we have more years of experience with it, so we can sort of work with/around it. For her, it still pushes her into total shutdown panic, and it takes a lot… Read more »

Getting My Crimp On

      No Comments on Getting My Crimp On

I’ve been making more stitch markers today; my crimper came in, so I wanted to get my hands around it. I think I’ve got the basic idea figured out, which is yay. Now if I could get my head around the wire wrapping for the head pins. I *can* manage, but I’ve not managed to get any speed or comfort… Read more »

If there was one thing that the girls wanted to do today, it was to get out on the back garden and play with some bubbles.  I was dragging my heels on assisting them because I was trying to get work-work done, but  I eventually got them dressed… just in time for Z to show up with, surprise, bubble guns….

The Latest in Fashion, Part 2

      No Comments on The Latest in Fashion, Part 2

I was getting stuck into working today, when I looked up to see Littlerbit putting a bowl on her head. It was just sort of an idle thing, one-handed; she wasn’t paying herself much mind. It was cute to watch though, so I figured I’d share my moment of amusement. It’s been a fairly ‘normal’ day, all told. Kiddo got… Read more »

Hooray for Alternatives

      No Comments on Hooray for Alternatives

I’ve been getting bit a bit by anxiety and insomnia the last couple of nights, and then I topped it off last night by forgetting to take my meds until Z reminded me that I’d forgotten. Whups. Thankfully, the bed in the guest bedroom is a magic fixative for me when I’m in dire straights. The room is the coldest… Read more »

Purrs Like a Kitten

      3 Comments on Purrs Like a Kitten

I ended up fiddling around with a couple of games on my laptop, after a nice long sludge in Diablo III. As much fun as that is, it does get boring after a few hours. I ended up back in Minecraft, and after a bit of fiddling, managed to get the game to remember that it’s supposed to operate off… Read more »

That Was Unexpected

      No Comments on That Was Unexpected

Z commented that the sky was falling, and that it looked like big fat raindrops. So I go to the window, and nope, it’s totally hail. And, it turns out, it was highly localised. I had friends reporting in from other parts of town with clear skies and not a drop of rain, so I don’t even know. *chuckles* I… Read more »
