Overdue Reorganisation

      No Comments on Overdue Reorganisation

Today, I managed to get body and brain working together enough to finally do my next step in getting the glass-fronted cupboard reorganised. My new, yet-to-be-read books are on the top shelf, as I’ve been doing for a couple of years now. I got all the books that had been clogging up my side table (two stacks about two feet… Read more »

Shiny Tat

      No Comments on Shiny Tat

I had a sudden hankering to dust and reorganise my tat shelf. I’ve tried to shift the things in the other room behind it to better support the overhanging bits (lunchbox and wool box), so we’ll see how it goes. For now, yay for having done a minor chore? I continue to slowly heal up from being sick. Today is… Read more »

3.75

      No Comments on 3.75

The next point that I have to think about doing anything on this jumper is at 3 and 3/4 inches — 3.75, if you will. It’s currently at just about 3 inches; I should probably try to estimate how many rows more I need to go. I also need to remember that when I do the increase that the pattern… Read more »

Too Many Unicorns

      No Comments on Too Many Unicorns

Today, my companion Smalls complained that I have too many unicorns, and that I was greedy. Let’s see — I made one unicorn, the red thing is a mooshroom, Fluffy was a Christmas gift, and kittencorn is only half a unicorn (and the only one I bought anyways). I was amused though — I do love my plush goodness. And… Read more »

Third Time Around

      No Comments on Third Time Around

I have managed to make a lot of good out of this whole Monday thing for once. My morning writing efforts were knocked out well before the school run. I even had time enough to putter around a bit and get Littler’s ‘packed lunch’ ready for her when she got home. It amuses her to get her lunch out of… Read more »

Tide of Desk-truction

      No Comments on Tide of Desk-truction

Oh okay, I might be fibbing slightly. This is actually my desk after I’ve done some chipping away at it. It’s still pretty bad, but it’s not like I’ve had the spoons to chip at it. Shit, I’ve had a hard enough time doing my ‘basic’ daily writing. I feel a little bad about it, ’cause Z has been in… Read more »

Oh No, Beta!

      No Comments on Oh No, Beta!

This is, of course, a Simpsons reference. It’s been going through my head since Z told me yesterday that our new car was going to be a Ford B-Max. And lo, here it is. It’s not the best picture because it was dark by the time that we got home, but you get the idea. It’s a car, it has… Read more »

Unimpressed AF

      No Comments on Unimpressed AF

One of the goodies R & C brought yesterday was a beanbag chair for the girls. They had brought it on a previous occasion, but forgot about it until after they had left. I had shoved it onto the couch because Z and I were looking for something, and Poison made very clear that she wasn’t impressed with such a… Read more »

Where the Paintwork Ends

      No Comments on Where the Paintwork Ends

The roadworks in the village are proceeding nicely. The road is repaved to the end of our street, so that makes it less fussy to get in and out (or would if we had a working car, more on that in a mo). They had only done the road painting to that point when I was doing the school run,… Read more »

Bed Buddies

      No Comments on Bed Buddies

While the girls have been sharing a room for some time now, they have something new in common — matching beds (and later this year, matching headboards). Littler’s bed was delivered this morning, and she had fun teasing her sister for having a ‘smaller’ bed. Small’s bed, being older, means that the mattress isn’t as perky, and it made for… Read more »
