Sure, Why Not

      No Comments on Sure, Why Not

If there is one thing I cannot help but admire in small children, it’s how they can fall asleep in all sorts of goofy situations. I realise that this isn’t that odd a set-up, but it was cute. I mean, doesn’t everyone sleep with one wellie on, tablet in lap, a light saber, and used lunch dishes? Really, it’s the… Read more »

Bits and Bobs

The unicorn pieces are slowly nearing completion. I’ve hit my usual ‘problem’ of doing toys — I get bored doing lots of tiny bits. I’d rather do big bits and join the big bits together, yanno? But it’s fine, it’s fine. I will get it done ’cause it’s a unicorn, and I will love it and gently squish it, and… Read more »

The Normal View

Yeah, the desk is pretty much a clutterfest all the way around, ha ha. It’s hard for me to care about it right now with this persistent headache, but at least said headache has been a bit better today? I’m still having to throw pain meds at it, but not as many. I think that there is a good chance… Read more »

Good Things (Come in Boxes)

      No Comments on Good Things (Come in Boxes)

In a delightfully timely fashion, our new cable box and router arrived — just as we were heading out of the house for a few errands. Our new service won’t be live until Monday, but at least the kit is here. So yay for that. The cabinet only went live this week, and it will nice to finally have decent… Read more »

I Disagree, Pavement

Really, since when is any stretch of asphalt a ‘great competitor’? Hrmph! I know, I know, it came from the Sports Day stickers that the village children went home festooned with. I spotted it on the way back from the village shop; I’d needed to pop in to get some washing up liquid. Smallhausen started telling me how it had… Read more »

HAIL!

      No Comments on HAIL!

Yes, hail, hail to the air conditioner retrieved from the garage. With the temperatures pushing 90 around here, the fans and lack of breeze weren’t cutting it. And we all needed the relief after a not great night last night. For me, my dumbass forgot to take my meds at the right time, so too hot to sleep + not… Read more »

Voila!

First things first — sock the first of my current pair is done! I finished it last night at the pub, and declared myself god for managing Kitchener stitch with people around. *giggles* I’m happy with it though. It fits nicely, it looks good, and is super comfortable. I’m slowly casting on for the second one, but I keep getting… Read more »

Thief!

I got up to go cuddle the girls on the couch earlier, and their response was to run over and claim my chair. Hrmph. Good thing they’re cute, right? *chuckles* And really, I didn’t mind, seeing how it was all a chance for more cuddles and tickles and playing! Today has been a brilliantly do-little day. I’ve done a tiny… Read more »

Spring Cleaning

      No Comments on Spring Cleaning

In keeping with our behind the times family, we’ve only felt the sudden need to do anything akin to ‘spring cleaning’ this weekend. Yanno, with just over a month to go until Summer starts officially, ha ha. Having said that, it hasn’t been nitpicking and dusting, but rather just trying to fight the tide of entropy.  It started with getting… Read more »

… and Everything in Its Place

      No Comments on … and Everything in Its Place

I finally (as of last week)  had purchased a replacement chain for the one that had broken. So now my spoons and my rings have a proper home; they’re looking good resting next to the knittin’ kitten. Having said that, it was attempt #2 at buying a chain, because the first one I bought was too short. Thankfully, I had… Read more »
