Outside Exists

      No Comments on Outside Exists

On today, the hottest day of the year so far — I left the house not once, but twice. I had an order come in last night on my way home from the pub, and then another one pretty much as soon as I had sat down and finished a sandwich after the first trip. Which was fine! I needed… Read more »

Uh, Stuff

      No Comments on Uh, Stuff

So like, all I wanted today was a huge pile of work to keep me distracted… so of course, there wasn’t. As you might’ve guessed based on last night’s post, my grandfather passed last night. I’m not dwelling on it or anything, but I -am- sad, and I -did- want something to keep my brain busy. The one upshot of… Read more »

I somehow managed to completely forget to blog last night… oh well. I’m sort of glad because it tells my brain that breaking perfect streaks isn’t going to break the world. I’ve got so much weird anxiety about that, which, I know. *doinks brain and chuckles* It’s silly. I’m mildly annoyed at Facebook right now. I decided I was going… Read more »

Grandad Conehands

      No Comments on Grandad Conehands

We, the six of us, went out for a family meal this evening. The girls were well-behaved (as always), and Granddad solicitously offered to help them eat their desserts. So they both gave him their cones, and focused on their ice cream. I don’t know know if he was amused that they took him at his word… I know I… Read more »

Setting In

      No Comments on Setting In

Today’s knitting is… sewing. And then more sewing. I got halfway around on the first sleeve and had to rip it out because it looked horrible. And it looked horrible because I always think that I remember how to set in sleeves without checking (hint: I really don’t xD). I’m making pretty good headway on the second sleeve, so hopefully… Read more »

Grind Grind Grind

I didn’t do a lot of making today, but I did get three new listings up in the shop (blah blah, buy us with money, blah blah). I had two I needed to list from yesterday, and one that I managed to cobble together to my satisfaction while Z was over at his parent’s house with the girls. And why were… Read more »

Easter Heroes

      No Comments on Easter Heroes

We are currently over at Z’s parent’s house. The girls started off the visit by starting their Easter Egg hunt — before any of the adults could process that they had started it, ha ha. It’s been the usual, pleasant family do though. There’s been food for nibbling on, kids running amok, and general chilling. Z and his dad watched… Read more »

Getting On

      No Comments on Getting On

Today has been for sitting on my backside, gaming, and knitting. I am pleased at the progress that I am making on this sleeve, especially since I’m not able to exclusively knit most of the time… hooray, ADHD brain! Still, progress is progress, and I’m over a quarter of the way done. That’s pretty cool, and it would be even… Read more »

Spot the Difference

      No Comments on Spot the Difference

I’ve happily been chipping away at the first sleeve, happy with the progress. I thought something looked different in the seed stitch, but I shrugged it off. And then, after 12 rows of it, I realised that I was doing double instead of single. Oh well. I’ve also decided that I cannot be bothered to do it right, so as… Read more »

Boosh

For Christmas, we got the girls a Nerf gun each. They love taking turns shooting plastic cups stacked on the stairwell. They were teasing Z about not having a gun himself, to which it was pointed out that he might not have one, but I sure do (and I let him borrow it, too). Apparently, having a Nerf gun raises… Read more »
