One of my least redeeming features is when my anxiety pushes past the point of reason. There is a very good chance that I will start screaming and throwing things and just generally flipping out because of the level of mental and physical distress it puts me in. Between a needy toddler and a shouty cat, I kind of started… 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 »

Just Me Today

      No Comments on Just Me Today

It’s Sunday. Which means I’m suffering low-grade depression and anxiety because my body apparently is programmed for such on a Sunday night, never mind there is absolutely no logical reason for it. But then, that’s the problem of those things… they tend to defy logic. I guess this week it’s sliiiiiiiiightly more reasonable because I’m going into work a day… Read more »

One Thing Went Right Today

Another day, another day my new Pokémon didn’t arrive. Again. Even I’m starting to get pissed off. Z called Amazon again and cancelled the order, and immediately re-ordered it. He saved £2, and it was guaranteed tomorrow delivery from an Amazon courier, not Royal Mail. Also, he go ta £5 voucher, and a free month of Prime out of the… Read more »

Future Order from Minor Disaster

      No Comments on Future Order from Minor Disaster

My desk has hit that sort of overgrown state again that happens when I keep piling stuff on it. Funny how that works. *cough* It’ll be a bit better once I get it crammed into my knitting bag for tomorrow… which I will hopefully tonight. We’ve got a very early start to make tomorrow to drive across to visit Riath… Read more »

I Made It!

      No Comments on I Made It!

Not gonna lie — I was really freaking anxious about going to Stitch ‘n Bitch tonight. E couldn’t make it, so I was flying solo. I really, *REALLY* did not want to deal with the person I had a conflict with, and moreso without support. So deities were awesome, and that person was not there tonight. She reputedly phoned in… Read more »

Fistful of Tiny Hats

Today has been a good day. Even if I had to leave the house. We went over to E’s house so the kids could play, and I didn’t fall to pieces over her like I feared I would. We’d not hung out in person since Woolgate (as I’m calling it), though we’ve done our usual few lines of chatting most… Read more »

Darn It

That’s… seriously been the extent of my ‘creative’ today. I was folding laundry and noticed one of my few sweaters had a little hole in the arm, so I brought it downstairs to mend it. I don’t know that it’s the tidiest mend. This is a shot of the inside, and it looks pretty okay there, but it’s slightly puckered… Read more »

Hats Go Marching On

      No Comments on Hats Go Marching On

Yeah yeah yeah, more little tiny hats. I’m starting to see where the pattern repeats give or take, which is fun to watch. ESPECIALLY when there’s a chance it won’t be a ‘proper’ repeat. I have to say, doing these in variegated wool keeps it a lot more interesting than single-coloured wool. Past that, just doing my best to be… Read more »
