Crumbling

      No Comments on Crumbling

Z was out earlier mowing the lawn. He’s not done it in a bit because either the grass was wet, or he’s been in too much pain. The girls wanted to go out and play with their scooter while he was out front doing it, so I opened the door for them. The light coming through the rotted mortar caught… Read more »

Little Gamers

      No Comments on Little Gamers

Today, the children exemplified that they are indeed our children; they spent the entire day playing video games with each other. Perhaps I should have encouraged them to do other things but meh. They were happy and having fun with each other, thereby enabling me to work. Considering that I’m well behind myself, having a couple of solid, uninterrupted hours… Read more »

My pretties arrived today! My two sets (and bat’s one set) arrived in good order this morning — with one of Z’s Amazon orders. The boxes have been sitting next to me taunting me all day. I’ve had silly things to worry about like, oh, work, and keeping the kids alive, ha ha. I know, not actually silly, but just… Read more »

Saving the Day

      No Comments on Saving the Day

The last bit for Littler’s Halloween costume came in today, so we let her put the bits on and flail around for the camera. I took a stupid number of pictures, but this one did the best of catching the essence of the ‘shoot’. We need to get Smalls to check the fit of her costume as well, but I’m… Read more »

Другой День, Другой Доллар

Or, in English — ‘Another day, another dollar’. That is never more true than on the first working day of the month. A new month means doing year end accounts for anything ending the previous month, and those need to be done as fast as possible. There’s only three from May, and I’ve got two of them pretty much turned… Read more »

Let’s Go All the Way

I continue to feel optimistic that I am going to end up with mainly matching socks somehow. I’m not fussed if I do, but I feel like it earns me ninja points or something, ha ha. If I were truly fussed about that sort of thing, I could have acquired two 50g skeins and tried to match starting points… but… 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 »

The Most Expensive Bowl I Own…

      No Comments on The Most Expensive Bowl I Own…

Is, of course, my new yarn bowl! And to be fair, £15.59 is a pretty reasonable price for such an important and nicely made bit of kit. It makes me wish that I could wood work… but on the other hand, I think Z would murder me if I got hooked into such a space-intensive hobby atop my other ones,… Read more »

A Day Best Shown in Pictures

      No Comments on A Day Best Shown in Pictures

I don’t know whether it’s the chronic fatigue talking or what, but today has been super busy. I’ve been really limited in what I’m able to do, but I’ve marshalled most of that towards making sure the kids had fun. I’m not the only one who was pitching into that sort of arena, but as said — pictures might well… Read more »

I Amuse Easily

      No Comments on I Amuse Easily

One of the more amusing points of the street corner being dug up is the road signs. This one here is directly at the end of our walkway, and I’m slightly miffed that Z won’t let me steal it. As it were, I find it mildly hilarious that they felt the need to put the sign in front of our… Read more »
