It Looked Better in Person

      No Comments on 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 »

Oh My

      No Comments on Oh My

So, I had my blood drawn for testing yesterday. And then I got a call this afternoon telling me that the results were in, and the doctor would be calling me Monday… oh my, ha ha. So whatever it is, it’s serious enough that they need to talk to me soon, but not serious enough that I’m going to die… Read more »

Allons-y!

Which is to say, I ran out of time to be clever or find a picture I liked, ’cause it’s almost time to go-go-go. Outside of visiting the vampire this morning, it’s been a good do-nothing day for me. Z, on the other hand, has been a super star. He took the girls to get school shoes. He took Smallhausen… Read more »

Yeah, That’ll Do

      No Comments on Yeah, That’ll Do

Okay, I really like this picture I just took. I’m thinking — new Facebook profile picture? I love the last one I took, but it was with transitory glasses, so isn’t an accurate reflection of the actual now-me. But I don’t like changing my pictures that often either because it gets *really* annoying when people change their pictures all the… Read more »

Love is Mint

      No Comments on Love is Mint

There’s a certain sort of mint Turkish delight that my in-laws like, and one that’s somewhat difficult to get any of it due to how quickly it sells out in their candy shop of preference. They’d sent me a box via Z a few days ago, which made me smile. It also made me quip that it was the time… Read more »

Well, That Happened

I did make myself sit down and finish off the last couple rows of my top. And then, I put it aside, reasoning that I wasn’t in the mood to do the sewing. So, of course, I did the sewing. And while there are still approximately one million ends that need weaving in, the actual sewing is done. It’s like… Read more »

I’ve Got a Brand New Bag…

      No Comments on I’ve Got a Brand New Bag…

Of wool. Because it was £5 a pop for a couple of 400 gram balls of aran wool, and I made grabbyhands at getting it for half-price. These were the four balls available — two black, and two lilac, and I am going to use them to make blanket. Or blankets. I’m not really sure how much ridiculousness I can… Read more »

Magnificence

I don’t really have anything to say today, so have a picture of one of our cats, Poison. She tends to live on the back of one couch or another, surveying all that she rules. Yes, I feel she is the true ruler of the house, ha ha. And that’s fine — I love our little old lady. She’s very… Read more »

Love Is (Edible)

Last night, Z sent me a link to something he was thinking of buying. I said yes, and that’s why we have a freaking display rack of 200 Chupa Chups in the house. I mean, come on, what could be cooler? And he did the math and it comes in at about 12 pence a lolly, so it’s good value… Read more »

All Shiny and New

      No Comments on All Shiny and New

I awoke this morning to the sound of construction going on outside. I don’t know *why* exactly, but it made me smile. Why was loud noise gonna make me smile, ha ha. It turns out it was something to smile about — the new streetlights are going in. They’re LED and can be individually adjusted and all sorts of shiny… Read more »
