Aw Hell

      No Comments on Aw Hell

I decided yesterday that it would be a good idea to ball/cake up the skeins of wool I was using to make my blanket. I got a sizable cake of the black done before switching to a ball, while the pink… well. It started to snarl up from the get go, so I ended up doing a huge freaking ball… 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 »

One in the Bag

      No Comments on One in the Bag

The first day of school is over! We have survived the first day! Hallelujah and things! Both of the girls had a full day of school, and Littler was certainly tired by the end of it. So was Smallhausen, to be fair. Z and I both went to get them from school, so we had a lovely little walk back… Read more »

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 »

Allons-y!

Which is to say, I ran out of time to be clever or find a picture I liked, ’cause it’s almost time to go-go-go. Outside of visiting the vampire this morning, it’s been a good do-nothing day for me. Z, on the other hand, has been a super star. He took the girls to get school shoes. He took Smallhausen… Read more »

Cheeky

Today’s planned outing was to go wander around the grocery store, in part to acquire needed staples like biscuits (cookies). In short, it was an excuse to get the girls out of the house for a little bit, ha ha. I took this picture of Littler while we were waiting for Z and Smallhausen to finish checking out. As usual,… 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 »

On the Late Late Train

      No Comments on On the Late Late Train

Everything about today has been happening late, from waking up, to dinner. Which is to say, it’s the girls’ bedtime and we’ve still not had dinner. We opted to order a takeaway and our timing was crap… so it goes. But as it’s Friday, it’s fine if they’re up a bit late as a special treat or whatever. Still, we’re… Read more »

My Needles Are Still Too Big

      2 Comments on My Needles Are Still Too Big

So, my straight needles are 40cm (just under 16 inches). I somehow managed to make do with them last night… but not so much here at home. They kept getting in the way, so I switched to my circular… which is 100cm long. It’s slightly less ludicrous on some ways, and more ludicrous in others. I went ahead and put… Read more »

My Needles Are Too Big

      No Comments on My Needles Are Too Big

Like, absolutely too big — they’re 40cm long. But it’s either that, or use a fixed 100cm circular (tempting at this point), or normal sized bamboo needles (much less tempting). Of course, it doesn’t matter when in seconds I’m going to be cramming it into my bag and running for the hills, ha ha. Time is sneaking away from me… Read more »
