Today is Mother’s Day (or Mothering Sunday) here in the United Kingdom. I got Z to take a few pictures of me and the girls being sweet/goofy/very us, such as this one at home. We’re currently at his parent’s house hanging out and eating. The girls have sung karaoke at us, cards were exchanged, and affirmations of affection were passed… Read more »

Out Cold

Z let me know when he got back from picking Smalls up from school that E was down for the count tonight. Which leaves me debating — do I stay, or do I go? I am tentatively going to make myself go just so I get back into the habit of it, but on the other hand, home is where… Read more »

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 »

As you can see, sock #2 is starting to get off to a good start. It’s a pretty good match-up colour-wise so far, but we’ll see how it goes. I might get further along and find that someone has done a random-ass grafting like in the other skein. *shakes head* Whatever the case, I’m enjoying the turn of speed that… Read more »

First things first — sock the first of my current pair is done! I finished it last night at the pub, and declared myself god for managing Kitchener stitch with people around. *giggles* I’m happy with it though. It fits nicely, it looks good, and is super comfortable. I’m slowly casting on for the second one, but I keep getting… Read more »

One of my least redeeming features is when my anxiety pushes past the point of reason. There is a very good chance that I will start screaming and throwing things and just generally flipping out because of the level of mental and physical distress it puts me in. Between a needy toddler and a shouty cat, I kind of started… Read more »

Fly-By Birthday-ness

      No Comments on Fly-By Birthday-ness

I came, I saw, I turned 35. I had a good meal, I socialised with friends, and got slightly miffed by someone being an ass. The latter was a minor dent on an otherwise stellar day, but I had a good whine about it on the way home and feel oodles better. I think. *chuckles* But really, it was mainly… Read more »

As of today, I can report that my Pokédex is properly, 100% complete… as of the last generation of games, Generation VI. I still find it funny that I found it easier to gather 721 Pokémon, to include all Mythicals, than I did the original 151. Having said that, the Global Trade System and Wonder Trade functions in Generations VI… Read more »

Slap a Ribbon ‘Round It

I still need to get it shoved into a bubble mailer, all the knitty bits are lovingly folded around each other and prettily packaged. Oh okay, the tissue paper under and around the ribbon tore a bit ’cause I was probably pulling the bow too tight, but whatever. It’s done, it looks nice from a distance, etc. And if you… Read more »

What We Don’t Talk About

      No Comments on What We Don’t Talk About

One very cogent and true complaint I see of modern life is how we have this online medium to present a picture perfect life. Fights are glossed over or never mentioned, each child is more picture perfect than the last, and isn’t everything enviable? Everyone is perfectly in love with the love of their life, and everyone is shitting rainbows… Read more »
