Going, Going, Gone

      No Comments on Going, Going, Gone

I took this picture when we were out for a little trip to the interchange. Smallhausen is in football club this term, and Z thought it would be a good idea to get her some shin guards, so we did that. I also poked my head into Matalan briefly to see if they had any nice looking jeans, and then… Read more »

Stealth Buttle-ing

      No Comments on Stealth Buttle-ing

At some point last night, I got the brilliant idea to start drawing little butts on E’s things. I don’t think she clocked the two that I did on her magazine, but she did see it when I leaned right in her space to do it on her notebook. *giggles* She was too busy chatting to really care, and even… Read more »

Cinnamon

I have to preface with saying that yes, cinnamon rolls happened, but my dumbass left the oven on half the day before I was reminded that the oven was on. Whups. But at least they did happen, and were well received by the fam (and I got to eat most of them anyways <__<). Today has been a laid back… Read more »

One Pain or Another

      No Comments on One Pain or Another

Today has been an annoyingly ouchy day. General pain aside, I got slammed with a brutal headache earlier. I’m pretty sure it was trying to head towards a migraine, but extra caffeine + codeine seems to have beaten it to the pass. So of course, while I’m celebrating that, I start cramping out of nowhere… sigh. At least being in… Read more »

My Needles Are Still Too Big

      2 Comments on My Needles Are Still Too Big

So, my straight needles are 40cm (just under 16 inches). I somehow managed to make do with them last night… but not so much here at home. They kept getting in the way, so I switched to my circular… which is 100cm long. It’s slightly less ludicrous on some ways, and more ludicrous in others. I went ahead and put… 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 »

I Thought There Was More

      2 Comments on I Thought There Was More

Last night was utterly brilliant. Good company, good conversations… and free, good quality wool. A visiting sister of one of our regulars had brought a box of wool to give away, and I made with the grabby hands. I was positive there were more skeins of the wool on the top, but I can’t see any. Maybe she nicked a… Read more »

For Those About to Rock

      No Comments on For Those About to Rock

This afternoon, we attended a party at a friend of mine’s house. Z and the girls had met her the one time previously I had, but none of us had been to her house. So I’m proud of the girls for being well behaved, and I’m proud for Z for keeping his head above water in an unfamiliar place with… Read more »

Pew Pew

      No Comments on Pew Pew

Today started as one of those days where everything was getting on my tits. The girls, bless ’em, were already bouncing off the walls and going full tilt, while I could barely keep my train of thought on the rails. I ended up getting a bit snappish because please dears, let your mother have some caffeine. But nobody died, I… Read more »

Moon Power

      No Comments on Moon Power

For my sins, I have never given any iteration of Sailor Moon a fair shake. I saw the first episode when I was a kid and didn’t know it was the first episode, so I was super put off by Usagi sitting down and crying until someone helped her. I should probably go back and watch it because it’s probably… Read more »
