Overdue Reorganisation

      No Comments on Overdue Reorganisation

Today, I managed to get body and brain working together enough to finally do my next step in getting the glass-fronted cupboard reorganised. My new, yet-to-be-read books are on the top shelf, as I’ve been doing for a couple of years now. I got all the books that had been clogging up my side table (two stacks about two feet… Read more »

Friendsgiving 2017

      No Comments on Friendsgiving 2017

While we do our Thanksgiving dinner with R and her husband, and she too is an ex-pat, I prefer to think of it in the British preferred approach to the holiday, which is Friendsgiving. It’s an excuse to get together and eat, which is the basis of most of our organised social events, but I guess it pleases me to… Read more »

She Wasn’t Impressed

      No Comments on She Wasn’t Impressed

The camera app that came with my phone has an option where you can tap in the centre of the screen, and it will focus on whatever it’s centered upon. I was looking at Poison there and gave it a go, and came out with this overexposed hilarity. I mean, it does pick her out better than it would have… Read more »

Hair Yesterday

      No Comments on Hair Yesterday

It’s definitely hair yesterday, because it’s a pub bathroom over the shoulder picture of it. We don’t have any mirrors around the house that I can do this with, so I figured I might as well while I had access to one. I’ve realised that my hair has actually grown a bit longer than it usually cuts off at, and… Read more »

All Kinds of Fluffy

      No Comments on All Kinds of Fluffy

But not like, the good kind of fluffy. The sort of puffed up snotty gross sort of way. I’m hoping that I luck out again tonight and have another solid night of sleep, and that a bath tomorrow gets the worst of it out of me. After all, I’ve got at least 4 hours in a car on Saturday to… Read more »

Rar Rar Rar

I couldn’t tell you why exactly, but today I’ve been doing sock monster on my hands. I guess it’s just me surfing on the random weird waves of my brain, ha ha. Plus, sock monsters are fun, and seeing how far the sock is progressing along my fingers is, as usual, pleasing. Today has been a good day of doing… Read more »

Natural Light

      No Comments on Natural Light

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 »

Still AWOL

      No Comments on Still AWOL

Alas, that is not my laptop — that is my tablet. My laptop is still in the shop awaiting repairs. Z popped in on the way home today and confirmed that yes, the fan is knackered and needs replacing. They also confirmed that they want to get that done before further checking anything else, since the overheating was the main… Read more »

Spiral On

      No Comments on Spiral On

I’ve made some decent progress on my second sock this weekend, tra la! I finished and turned the heel, and am making lovely progress down the foot. I’m not counting on having it done before Thursday’s knitting session, but I’m just happy that, once again, that second sock feels like it flies by as compared to the first. I’m always… Read more »

Crouching Toddler, Hidden Kitten

      No Comments on Crouching Toddler, Hidden Kitten

You miiiiight be able to make it out past the heaps of stuff, but you can just about make out Poison on the window ledge. I thought I managed a better picture of her hiding out over there, but apparently I was wrong. I don’t know why I found this to be super cute, but I really, really, *REALLY* did…. Read more »
