Progress in Motion

      No Comments on 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 »

Full of Stars

I’m a sucker for new pajama bottoms any time I walk past a display of them. Which means that, mysteriously, I’ve acquired another pair in the past week. They get top marks so far, as they are kind of fuzzy, covered in stars, and has pockets. One of the pockets has a tiny hole in it, but yanno, that can… Read more »

Sugar Crush

Cake! So many cakes! A surfeit of cakes! So what does Smalls want when she gets to pick? She asked for the cake I made and brought, ha ha. She had a cupcake as well, and decided that she needed to help me eat my lunch atop that. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour out of the… Read more »

When I took this picture from bed last night, I didn’t expect it to be my (potential) point of view for today. Which is to say, I woke up feeling a bit off, and then quickly started feeling like I’d been punched up and down every pipeline in my body. I managed to obtain enough relief that I deemed it… Read more »

The Last Night

      No Comments on The Last Night

Tonight’s image comes from when I was puttering around with Littler and Z’s mom while Littler ‘rode’ her bike. I really like signage, to the point of having gotten caught stealing a sign from a store’s bathroom, and being told I wasn’t allowed to come back. ANYWAYS. This is the last night on the current bed. I am excite. Z… 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 »

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 »

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 »
