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 »

Which, I blush to admit, is a terrible pun on Aileen, which is the named storm currently blowing its way into/across the UK. The winds bothered the girls last night enough to wake them up, which means they didn’t get the sleep they needed. Z made sure their windows were sealed tight for tonight rather than leaving them cracked for… 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 »

Beauty Is

It was a rainy school run, so I grabbed any umbrellas I could find for it. Which means I could only find Smallhausen’s umbrella, as we leave it hanging up in the downstairs toilet. I guess that was fine, as the worst of the rain trying to get in my face was on the way to school. It was still… Read more »

Underwater

Today has been… wet. There’s been a little bit of thunder, a couple spells of heavy rain, and on the whole has been delightful (except where I had to run through it, ha ha). Forecasters are saying we’re going to get more of the same over the next week, so as long as it doesn’t affect the school run, I’m… Read more »

All the Good Things

Today has: Weather – It rained, and there was even a tiny bit of thunder. Alas, it rained on the school run, but never mind. We didn’t get soaked through, so all was well. Coffee – I’ve actually wanted coffee lately, so it’s been nice having a cup here and there. Dragon Age – I really do like this game,… Read more »

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 »

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 »

Voila!

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 »

Fly Away

Today’s cringe-worthy subject line comes to you compliments of the yarn being used. The shade is called ‘Pegasus‘, so yanno, wings, har har. I couldn’t resist it though, because besides being a pretty colourway, my high school mascot was the Pegasus. Well, my home town had a thing with Pegai in general.. ‘For those who grew up in Dallas, Pegasus… Read more »
