The Flip Side

      No Comments on The Flip Side

I decided I was going to try to focus my efforts on getting the blanket finished. It takes up a lot of space in my crafting area, so getting it done and moved off would be a Good Thing™®. It’s pleasant to look upon and I was starting to get a good pace before we hit dinnertime. Hopefully I can… Read more »

Working Dinner

      No Comments on Working Dinner

Today has been… a day. It started with waking up to find out I’d slept through Smalls being sick all night. She ended up having to stay home, and has to again tomorrow per school rules. She’s in good spirits though, and trying to eat, so she’ll probably be fine for Wednesday. ((and being sick meant more toast for her,… Read more »

Something Different

Z had spotted a jar of black bean sauce and decided to try and make us a nice stir-fry with it. It was alright, I guess. Which is to say, I inhaled it while trying to decide if I liked it or not. If he made it again, I would eat it. Is it better than a takeaway? Probably not,… Read more »

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 »

Quick as a Flash

In the realm of quick dinners, Z decided that taco boats were the winner. And they were! We blasted through the meat as well… as one could expect with an extra person eating it, ha ha. I ended up doing most of the cooking for once, if only so Z could work the dishes at the same time. I was… Read more »

The Happiest Fattytum

This is a picture from the other day that I had forgotten I’d taken of our cat, Poison. Of our two, she’s the one that tends to health problems, so sometimes hides herself away and avoids the world. So it’s always a bit pleasing when she’s feeling enough herself to roll around in a sunbeam, basking us in the adorableness… 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 »

Z and I do the vast majority of our grocery shopping online for delivery. We tend to start in the discount section, which means that we get some things we’d probably not get otherwise. One of mine this most recent shop was cinnamon rolls, which nobody regrets. We all had one as a post-dinner treat and were well received. It… Read more »

Date Night!

      2 Comments on Date Night!

In honour of our 10th anniversary, Z arranged for his parents to take the kids so we could go out and have a meal on the town. He casually surprised me with the idea yesterday so we would have time to decide before going out tonight. It was an easy pick — there is a new Mexican in town, and… Read more »

That Western War

      No Comments on That Western War

Being, of course, the correct way to eat a scone during a cream tea. For what it’s worth, I had one each way and couldn’t make my mind up as to which was better, so I guess I’m just going to have to eat more scones until I have a more definitive opinion. I suspect that it’s going to be… Read more »
