The Best View

      2 Comments on The Best View

It’s the weekend, so we’re doing what we do best — sitting on our butts playing video games. Smalls and Littler got their¬†Diablo on with Z earlier, and then played a few games with him on his VR headset. It’s pretty cool, the headset; it’s set up so that people not wearing the VR helmet can play as well. I’m… Read more »

Consolation Prizes

Z took the girls on a little outing this afternoon, and they brought me back pressies. They wanted to do something to help me feel a bit better about cacking up my PC, and it certainly made me smile. I also remembered this morning that there¬†was a spare computer I could use. I was poking along on my netbook (which… Read more »

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 »

Looty Loot Loot

It’s the last workday of the year, yay! And with that came a final divvy of presents from our various contractors. Since neither Z nor myself drink, we ended up with a choice selection of candy and biscuits (cookies for the non-Brits). I claimed the jellies for my own because I love jelly candy, while Z has made sure to… Read more »

Lulz, Nope

To cut a long story short, the girls didn’t go to school today. I’m not convinced that they were poorly enough to actually need to stay in, but they did. But I did manage to grudgingly manage to bathe, so that was the main thing. I can usually power through and make myself do it before I get too gross,… Read more »

Unimpressed AF

One of the goodies R & C brought yesterday was a beanbag chair for the girls. They had brought it on a previous occasion, but forgot about it until after they had left. I had shoved it onto the couch because Z and I were looking for something, and Poison made very clear that she wasn’t impressed with such a… Read more »

Progress in Motion

There are lots of resurfacing works being done in the village right now, necessitating road closures. This was one of the signs I passed on the school run; the guy in the car behind said sign gave me a very unimpressed look. Sorry mate, there was something new and shiny to catch my eye, and I have a thing for… Read more »

Ninja Hugs

There is a… for a lack of a better phrase… a toddler meme called ‘Johnny Johnny’. As I have a only just not a toddler, we all know it well. Instead of asking her if she was eating sugar or candy, I asked her if she was hugging her father. This was her approach to it before responding to me…. Read more »

It’s Nearly There

      No Comments on It’s Nearly There

Today has been a long day, and a bit of a self-inflicted one at that. I was still aching from how hard I was working over the weekend, and decided I should add to that by taking Littler around to play at her grandparent’s house after school. It’s not like they live that far away, but apparently my back was… Read more »

It Looked Better in Person

I stood up to open the window because I thought I had heard thunder, and instead was treated to a lovely little double rainbow. It was only there for a minute or so, and the second rainbow started going before I could get a camera on it, but you can just about see it if you squint. I failed in… Read more »
