Table for Four

      No Comments on Table for Four

Today is Z’s birthday. We opted to do a family lunch, which was the first time we’d done one since we were on vacation a few years back. The food was excellent, the girls well behaved, and we’re in agreement that we should all do it again in the near future. We had fun quizzing Littler on shapes and counting,… Read more »

The North Remembers

      No Comments on The North Remembers

In the UK, it is said that the north of the country begins after the Watford Gap services on the M1. Ergo, every time we go past the services and start seeing the signs for THE NORTH, I tend to have a chuckle and a mock scream about being in the north for a few minutes before we change roads… Read more »

Meal With a View

      No Comments on Meal With a View

There is a place near to ours that I have wanted to go to lunch at pretty much since I moved here. Today was finally that day, and what a day for a view. And I am most sincere in that — it was very pretty in a bleak sort of way, which is fitting with it being winter and… Read more »

Another Year

      No Comments on Another Year

And today marks another year gone by in the life of my eldest. She has had an awesome day, with presents, cake, butts, and a playdate with her bestie. Top that off with spending the night at her grandparent’s, and well. I’m sure that she’ll still be buzzing when we go over for lunch tomorrow//to pick her up. I’m unbuzzing,… Read more »

The Tiniest Kidnapper

      No Comments on The Tiniest Kidnapper

Smalls insists that Littler was trying to kidnap her here. I’m not sure how that would actually work, even accounting for how strong Littler is. Still, it was cute, so slap a few stickers on it, and it’s brutally kawaii, ha ha. I’m feeling really anxious today for some stupid reason. Yes, I have the LEEP/LEETZ tomorrow, but I am… Read more »

Sugar Crush

Cake! So many cakes! A surfeit of cakes! So what does Smalls want when she gets to pick? She asked for the cake I made and brought, ha ha. She had a cupcake as well, and decided that she needed to help me eat my lunch atop that. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour out of the… Read more »

Up and On

      No Comments on Up and On

Today, we celebrated Littler’s birthday. She had lots of fun at school, to include getting sung at. She loved her presents, and she loved the cake that I made for her. She helped, to be fair — helped lick the frosting off of the beater! Now Z is tucking two very tired little girls into bed, and I can’t but… Read more »

Grr

First of all, I apologise if you didn’t get the snazziness of a featured image today. For some reason, I can’t get the gallery to accept uploads. I don’t know if there’s something down at Dreamhost, or something down at our end, but whatever. You still get a picture here at least? Of course, today’s picture comes to you compliments… Read more »

Fly-By Birthday-ness

      No Comments on Fly-By Birthday-ness

I came, I saw, I turned 35. I had a good meal, I socialised with friends, and got slightly miffed by someone being an ass. The latter was a minor dent on an otherwise stellar day, but I had a good whine about it on the way home and feel oodles better. I think. *chuckles* But really, it was mainly… Read more »

Squirrelfest

I’ve been taken a lot of pictures on accident lately. That, or Littlerbit is a bigger ninja than I realised. I found this one on my phone when I went to mail a picture of the birthday girl to myself for use in posting. This works pretty well too though. There’s my PJs, there’s my 3DS, and there’s my desktop… Read more »
