Hair Yesterday

      No Comments on Hair Yesterday

It’s definitely hair yesterday, because it’s a pub bathroom over the shoulder picture of it. We don’t have any mirrors around the house that I can do this with, so I figured I might as well while I had access to one. I’ve realised that my hair has actually grown a bit longer than it usually cuts off at, and… Read more »

Phteven the Unicorn

      No Comments on Phteven the Unicorn

Now, I didn’t expect much from a cheap Adopt-a-Unicorn toy, but I didn’t expect the latest incarnation of the Phteven meme. I mean, did the toy designer ever lay eyes on a horse before? Smalls called it adorable, which was sweet of her. Everything about it is so wonky that like… I don’t even know. *laughs* I’ve got it tucked… Read more »

The Tiniest Kidnapper

      No Comments on The Tiniest Kidnapper

Smalls insists that Littler was trying to kidnap her here. I’m not sure how that would actually work, even accounting for how strong Littler is. Still, it was cute, so slap a few stickers on it, and it’s brutally kawaii, ha ha. I’m feeling really anxious today for some stupid reason. Yes, I have the LEEP/LEETZ tomorrow, but I am… Read more »

Workaday

One of the other sights on the walk home was this snapped image. There is a house on the main road that has been redoing their garage and front ‘garden’, and something about it was like, whelp, stop I’m recording this. I noticed as I paused there was another workman in the garage having a cuppa, and I shot him… Read more »

351

      No Comments on 351

351 refers to the number of stitches I had to cast on for this. I got lucky and got it right the first time — but I still counted it twice to make very sure that it was right. I’m currently knitting the first row before joining it in the round because it’s going to be easier to get it… Read more »

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Moggy

      No Comments on Your Friendly Neighbourhood Moggy

One of the biggest culture shocks when I moved to the UK is that it’s common wisdom that it’s perfectly fine to let cats be indoor/outdoor. And while, yes, I like seeing cats as I walk about, I still consider it pet abuse. This was something bat commented on as well, to the point of finally getting a friend of… Read more »

Not Spaghetti Squash

      No Comments on Not Spaghetti Squash

Today, I had the dubious pleasure of coring four pumpkins for tomorrow. I don’t know what the frack happened, but two of them decided they were spaghetti squash and I had like, ALL THE STRANDS. My working theory of the moment is that it had to do with the tool I used on the two over the spoon I used… Read more »

Yay Tidying

One of the projects Z has wanted to tackle for ages has been our pantry. Today was the day that he managed it, and he did a great job clearing out stuff. Winners included a can of tonic water from before we moved into this house, and a box of Stove Top that predated that. Whups. But it’s out of… Read more »

I Had to Get Dressed

      No Comments on I Had to Get Dressed

I had exactly one thing on my itinerary for the day — not getting dressed. That quickly got scuppered when bat messaged down that they needed to see a doctor. Oh well, I’ll not get dressed tomorrow instead, ha ha. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that the walk-in centre wasn’t going to charge them for a single… Read more »

Little Gamers

      No Comments on Little Gamers

Today, the children exemplified that they are indeed our children; they spent the entire day playing video games with each other. Perhaps I should have encouraged them to do other things but meh. They were happy and having fun with each other, thereby enabling me to work. Considering that I’m well behind myself, having a couple of solid, uninterrupted hours… Read more »
