Sure, Why Not

      No Comments on Sure, Why Not

If there is one thing I cannot help but admire in small children, it’s how they can fall asleep in all sorts of goofy situations. I realise that this isn’t that odd a set-up, but it was cute. I mean, doesn’t everyone sleep with one wellie on, tablet in lap, a light saber, and used lunch dishes? Really, it’s the… Read more »

It Burrrrrns

      4 Comments on It Burrrrrns

I don’t know if it’s the pollen or the air pressure or both, but I have a brutal sinus headache. It’s not a congested thing, but rather, more of a ‘everything in my head is in pain and on fire’ sort of thing, to include my eyes.  It’s not pleasant. R thinks it might get better if/when the thunderstorm we’re… Read more »

I Disagree, Pavement

      No Comments on I Disagree, Pavement

Really, since when is any stretch of asphalt a ‘great competitor’? Hrmph! I know, I know, it came from the Sports Day stickers that the village children went home festooned with. I spotted it on the way back from the village shop; I’d needed to pop in to get some washing up liquid. Smallhausen started telling me how it had… Read more »

So That Happened

First things first — Z’s minor operation went well. I’m doing my best to dote and cover chores so he can rest up over the weekend… which should hopefully go a bit more smoothly because he made the point to get things fairly caught up before we headed out for the ‘party’. I need to try to remember to get… Read more »

That Was Quick

So, I rolled my character yesterday morning. I had work, I was out on a night, and then I had work again today. So, how am I level 34 already, ha ha. Granted, I’m currently on Expert difficulty, which is juuuuust about challenging. I think it’s the first time that I’ve ramped up the difficultly on a first run-through for… Read more »

How Does Your Garden Grow?

      No Comments on How Does Your Garden Grow?

While this colourway is called ‘Sugar Cookie’, it’s seriously like a rose to me. I love roses to some ridiculous degree, so this suits me. Like, I love roses to the point that I insisted (if possible) that I bring the roses my mother-in-law got me for my first Christmas in the UK here to the new house when we… Read more »

Too Many Pictures in the Year

      No Comments on Too Many Pictures in the Year

My mother-in-law’s birthday is in a few days, and her one request was that I whip up a new filler for the picture frame we got her last year. The filler currently in it was pictures of the girls from the previous year, so what I’m doing is the same again. As I’ve taken *thousands* of photos in the past… Read more »

No Photo Available

Well okay, that’s not strictly true, as here’s a nice picture of clouds and a tree. But it’s a filler picture for what I should have taken pictures of — the kiddos at the village fun day. But nope, I managed to leave my phone at home, so will have to rely on other parties for treasured digital memories. I’m… Read more »

Treasure Hunting

      No Comments on Treasure Hunting

When my youngest sister and her husband were visiting us a few years back on their babymoon, they got us started on the whole geocaching thing. Smalls refers to it as treasure hunting, which is accurate enough. Z decided that the weather was the right level of overcast and not raining to get out and work on a few we’d… Read more »

Hippie Feet

      No Comments on Hippie Feet

We went around to my in-law’s house, and I got the urge to take my shoes off and wander in the garden. Theirs is ridiculously huge by British standards, and fairly generous even by a Texan’s standards. They acquired a paddock from a neighbour at a steep discount ages ago, so there’s a long stretch to wander about and wiggle… Read more »
