Not Exactly My Forte

      No Comments on Not Exactly My Forte

First things first — I finished my socks last night, as I thought I would. I think I am going to debut them tomorrow, as they would look grand over a pair of black leggings. Secondly, as my cool-down project, I decided I would finish the poor mouse that has been languishing on my desk for… well, quite some time… Read more »

Up Close and Personal

I figured a nice picture of the growing green part of the shawl would be nice, so here you go. I was sort of awkwardly dangling it trying to get my phone to focus, ’cause yanno, that’s how I roll (or something). Work was very unproductive. I did some invoices, and hopefully tomorrow in the office will go well. Cross… 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 »

The Latest in Fashion

Littlerbit starts nursery next month, and one of the things that they are required to have at school is a pair of wellies for wet play. Littler loves wellies, so popped them on the second she got near them. I don’t know why it charms me so that she can put them on by herself, but she can. She didn’t… Read more »

Let Them Eat Cake

Before we put them to bed, Littler decided that I was a climbing frame. This included her using my legs as a slide a couple of times after I made the mistake of doing it to her once. Whups. *chuckles* It was sweet though. I’m glad that she was feeling well enough to want to cuddle and play. It won’t… Read more »

Annoying the Cat

      No Comments on Annoying the Cat

Really though, annoying cats is fab, ha ha. She is very fond of sitting on the cushions atop the couch and surveying all that she reigns over. We had to put the red blanket there because she’s been doing some massive damage to our freaking new leather couch when she was trying to get traction for her tubby little body,… Read more »

Foggy Day Friends

      No Comments on Foggy Day Friends

I woke up this morning feeling sort of human, but definitely with pea soup fogbrain. I managed to chuck enough caffeine at it to clear it up by afternoon, but that had a headache to follow it. Which meant pills, and more caffeine, ’cause I wanted to be in semi-decent form. Why? I was having a friend to visit for… Read more »

Attempting Order out of Disorder

      No Comments on Attempting Order out of Disorder

Alas, the things I’m trying to sort aren’t exactly this half of my desk, ha ha. I *DID* finally sit down and finish inventorying my wool supplies, so that was pleasing. Hah, so of course I stand up and try to move things around a little bit. It’s still pretty bad, but it’s just that little bit more ordered. I… Read more »

The Lengths I’ve Gone To…

      No Comments on The Lengths I’ve Gone To…

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)

      No Comments on 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 »
