I’ve Got a Brand New Bag…

      No Comments on I’ve Got a Brand New Bag…

Of wool. Because it was £5 a pop for a couple of 400 gram balls of aran wool, and I made grabbyhands at getting it for half-price. These were the four balls available — two black, and two lilac, and I am going to use them to make blanket. Or blankets. I’m not really sure how much ridiculousness I can… Read more »

Math and Fashion

Littler came stomping down in mismatched wellies, and I was charmed enough to ask her to take a picture. She agreed… and then grabbed her sister’s math book and started trying to hide behind it. After a couple of attempts I managed to get this particularly triumphant shot for the win. And yes, math book. Z and I saw some… Read more »

For Those About to Rock

This afternoon, we attended a party at a friend of mine’s house. Z and the girls had met her the one time previously I had, but none of us had been to her house. So I’m proud of the girls for being well behaved, and I’m proud for Z for keeping his head above water in an unfamiliar place with… Read more »

On the Way

Today’s picture(s) come to you compliments of the school run. There’s always lots of pretty things to see in peoples’ gardens along the way, to include the sassy cat I spotted lounging under a tree. I took more pictures than these, so maybe I’ll use them some other time. I managed to achieve all my objectives today, which were: A. … Read more »

Well okay, that’s not strictly true, as here’s a nice picture of clouds and a tree. But it’s a filler picture for what I should have taken pictures of — the kiddos at the village fun day. But nope, I managed to leave my phone at home, so will have to rely on other parties for treasured digital memories. I’m… Read more »

Treasure Hunting

When my youngest sister and her husband were visiting us a few years back on their babymoon, they got us started on the whole geocaching thing. Smalls refers to it as treasure hunting, which is accurate enough. Z decided that the weather was the right level of overcast and not raining to get out and work on a few we’d… Read more »

First of all, I apologise if you didn’t get the snazziness of a featured image today. For some reason, I can’t get the gallery to accept uploads. I don’t know if there’s something down at Dreamhost, or something down at our end, but whatever. You still get a picture here at least? Of course, today’s picture comes to you compliments… Read more »

My Own Cake Wreck

      No Comments on My Own Cake Wreck

I’m not exactly sure what was going on, but my attempt to turn my beautiful Chroma wool into a cake crashed and burned badly. I’m not sure if it was down to how the wool itself was constructed, or the fact that my winder is well-loved. I’ve been having an increasing number of accidents like this, so it might be… Read more »

Z needed to go to the garden centre to get some weedkiller, and as is his wont on a weekend, he’d planned to take the girls along so they had an outing. To our mutual satisfaction, I was feeling up to coming along and helping herd the kids, if only just. We also wanted to look at the garden sheds,… Read more »

Brilliant Times

Hahah, it’s late, so late. But it was a really good night out. It was a small group, only five of us, but it was a candid and friendly environment with lots of good chatter and crafting and the usual silliness. I had some rather edifying conversations that made me feel less alone in the world. I also managed to… Read more »
