Long, But Good

      No Comments on Long, But Good

It has been a very, veeeeery long day. The tl;dr is that I found frames that I like, and that at least one pair will be ready for me on Monday. So that’s a relief; I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to get them in time for driving Wednesday of next week. And it turns out that my… Read more »

A Day in a Picture

      No Comments on A Day in a Picture

Today was the first day of half-term. And as it is during half-term, Smallhausen always reminds me that she wants her nails painted. She can’t have them at school and she takes after me in loving having a splash of colour on her fingertips. I usually sort of muttergrumble and forget to do it, but this time I sucked it… Read more »

My epilator has gone missing, and we think that Littlerbit has stashed it somewhere. The question is — where? I decided that I was going to tear apart the lounge and check through all their toys to see if maybe it had gotten buried there… no dice. But on the up side the toys are the tidiest they’ve been in… Read more »

An Early Start (Finish)

I forgot to take my meds last night, which means I didn’t sleep well. The knock-on from not sleeping well is feeling incredibly ill, both physically and mentally. With chronic fatigue, sleep isn’t restful. At best, you maintain the status quo of feeling generally cruddy. But as I was reminded today, not getting that sleep rebound severely. I was so… Read more »

I have spent the last couple of hours making stitch markers. There’s nothing super-fancy to it — you attach parts a to b and to c, and then job done. But like, it looks really cool and impresses people when you say that you ‘made’ them, so. Not that I’m out to impress people really, but it makes me happy… Read more »

Today was one of those days where I felt like I was being productive. I got my writing done fairly tidily, I got work done, I saw myself and the kiddo fed.  It might be the same-old same old, but I’m going to celebrate every single day I can manage it. Littlerbit was waffling between not-Lego-ing and drawing; you can… Read more »

It’s Definitely Love

My new tiny circulars arrived today, so I got started on the first sock tonight at knitting. I’ve got a long way yet to go, but I’m already in love with what I’m seeing, hee hee. As much as I love wools that are in various colours, I’m also wary of the patterning coming out not-cute. I’m not completely sure… Read more »

The Bastard

Well, not me. No. Even if I look like a bit of a knob. No, the bastard is my non-sunglasses. I was gently pushing them up my nose, and they just gently fell apart. We’re a tiny bit overdue to get new glasses anyways, so that just means we finally booked in our eye tests. And in the interim, Z… Read more »

Outdoors is Overrated

Okay, I’m lying. I actually like overcast. I also like sunny. I love the rain — as long as it’s not too cold. For all that I curl up at home and rarely leave it, I do appreciate nature. In small doses. I got two such doses today, ’cause Z is under the weather. He took Smallhausen to school, but… Read more »

… a freshly wound ball of variegated wool. I mean, this stuff was gorgeous on the hank, but wounded into a cake it looks even more exciting. I’m currently working a gauge square, and planning on circling back to the start. That is to say, I am thinking I am going to do Just Plain Socks by Talena Winters. Her… Read more »
