Laundry Inspector

      No Comments on Laundry Inspector

Any time I’ve got the clean laundry spread across the bed, Batman thinks that it is his solemn duty to bury himself in my share of it. I get it, he’s my jealous boyfriend, and he’s got to get his smell all over my things. I annoyed him by trapping him in and smooching his face — after annoying him… Read more »

Surprise, Bed!

      No Comments on Surprise, Bed!

Z and I arranged to go recce the bed shops to see if we could find something we liked. What we didn’t expect was to find the perfect thing right there in front of us in the first shop we went to. What you’re seeing is now ex-display Tempur mattresses, saving us over a thousand pounds because they are ‘last… Read more »

It Looked Better in Person

      No Comments on It Looked Better in Person

I stood up to open the window because I thought I had heard thunder, and instead was treated to a lovely little double rainbow. It was only there for a minute or so, and the second rainbow started going before I could get a camera on it, but you can just about see it if you squint. I failed in… Read more »

My Water is Tooooo Pretentious

      No Comments on My Water is Tooooo Pretentious

Okay this isn’t the most inspired picture, even if it’s a picture of how my water is inspired by clouds. Yeah, your guess is as good as mine on that line of backlabel marketing. All I know is that the bottle has a sports cap, and takes up less room on my desk than the pitcher I had. I have… Read more »

Corner Views

I cannot remember if I’ve told this story here before, so I will take a moment to tell it now. My first Christmas in this country, my mother-in-law bought me several rosebushes to plant in our ‘garden’ (if you can call a bunch of effin’ rock ground cover a garden) — because she knew I loved roses and considered them… Read more »

Solar Powered

      No Comments on Solar Powered

I think that it is one of those universal cat things wherein they seem to behave as if they are solar powered. Not that I mind — there’s little that compares to the goodness of burying a face in a pile of warm fur, hee hee. Plus, I can’t think of any time that I’ve posted a picture from my… Read more »

Whoopsie

      No Comments on Whoopsie

We got a knock on the door this afternoon. It turns out we’d left our garage open overnight, and the neighbour whose front of house is pointed that way wanted to make sure we knew. He waited as long as he did because hey, in a village, not like it was a real risk. And indeed, nobody took anything… though… Read more »

Oh My

      No Comments on Oh My

So, I had my blood drawn for testing yesterday. And then I got a call this afternoon telling me that the results were in, and the doctor would be calling me Monday… oh my, ha ha. So whatever it is, it’s serious enough that they need to talk to me soon, but not serious enough that I’m going to die… Read more »

Love is Mint

      No Comments on Love is Mint

There’s a certain sort of mint Turkish delight that my in-laws like, and one that’s somewhat difficult to get any of it due to how quickly it sells out in their candy shop of preference. They’d sent me a box via Z a few days ago, which made me smile. It also made me quip that it was the time… Read more »

Vampires, Innit

      No Comments on Vampires, Innit

Say what you will for or against, Sims 4, but it sure is purdy. And I have to say that I am finding the vampire mechanics a lot of fun. They were overpowered to the point of boring in Sims 3, especially when you could buy the lifetime wish that made them immune to sunlight. There’s some mechanic for it… Read more »
