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

      No Comments on 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

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 »

A Day in a Picture

Today was the first day of half-term. And as it is during half-term, Smallhausen always reminds me that she wants her nails painted. She can’t have them at school and she takes after me in loving having a splash of colour on her fingertips. I usually sort of muttergrumble and forget to do it, but this time I sucked it… Read more »

I’ve not done a lot today, which is fine by me. I’ve done some knitting, I’ve taken care of the kids, and I’ve continued wallowing in the ancient fun of the original Civilization. I started the day sort of worrying that I wasn’t going to be able to cope with the kiddos, but Smallhausen stepped up in a big way…. Read more »
