Wet Wet Wet

      No Comments on Wet Wet Wet

Today’s picture is actually from yesterday, but it works the same today. It’s been raining and gross, and hooray for not having to be out in it. The forecasters seem to be suggesting that it’s going to stay this sort of nasty for the next couple of weeks… sigh. I cannot decide if it’s better because somewhat less dangerous, or… Read more »

Eat It

      No Comments on Eat It

I am currently curled up in ‘my’ chair nest at Z’s parents’ house. They have put out a lovely spread, and I have been doing my best to make it disappear since getting here a couple of hours ago. It’s the perfect sort of fooding situation for trying to hurry up this half-assed healing thing my body is attempting. I’m… Read more »

Diablo and Chill

      No Comments on Diablo and Chill

Today, I am continuing in the glorious vein known as playing Diablo III, and working on my knitting. I decided to switch to Adventure mode for my play today, in part because it’s more bite sized, and in part because I am trying to break myself of an old must-do from my Diablo II days. See, I used to ‘need’… Read more »

Blanket Party

      No Comments on Blanket Party

There was a bit of snow on the ground when I woke up this morning — but only a bit. There was more plastered to the side of the car, which tried to cling on in spite of rain. It’s really cold and wet out there still, albeit still rain instead of snow. Between that and E not able to… Read more »

Untold Riches!

      No Comments on Untold Riches!

Z went over to his parents’ house to help with prep for tomorrow, and took the girls with him. His mother keeps an advent calendar for the girls over there, and sends them home with what they haven’t had when it comes to the end of advent. Which means they have a bag full of really nice chocolate that probably… Read more »

Looty Loot Loot

It’s the last workday of the year, yay! And with that came a final divvy of presents from our various contractors. Since neither Z nor myself drink, we ended up with a choice selection of candy and biscuits (cookies for the non-Brits). I claimed the jellies for my own because I love jelly candy, while Z has made sure to… Read more »

To Actual Scale

      No Comments on To Actual Scale

No, obviously my child isn’t the size in this picture, ha ha. But a parcel came in for Z that wasn’t due today, so I asked her to stand there for comparison. He figured out what it was and that it had actually come two days early, so at least that mystery was solved. And at least it was solved… Read more »

The Last Day

      No Comments on The Last Day

Today is the last day of the kiddos being quarantined from school. Tomorrow… is the last day of school. I’m glad that they get to go in, and they’re glad too. And, thankfully, we all held it together today on the whole. I am feeling a bit cruddier, but like… at least tomorrow I just have me to take care… Read more »

It Begins

      No Comments on It Begins

One of the houses in the village that went all out for Halloween has made a start on their Christmas decorations. If that’s what they want to do, then good on them — but I still roll my eyes slightly. While smiling. As said, to each their own, but it’s not for me personally. Doesn’t mean I’m going to disparage… Read more »

Friendsgiving 2017

      No Comments on Friendsgiving 2017

While we do our Thanksgiving dinner with R and her husband, and she too is an ex-pat, I prefer to think of it in the British preferred approach to the holiday, which is Friendsgiving. It’s an excuse to get together and eat, which is the basis of most of our organised social events, but I guess it pleases me to… Read more »
