On the Way

      No Comments on 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 »

No Photo Available

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

      No Comments on 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 »

Grr

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 »

Natural Light

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

      No Comments on 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 »

A Lovely Evening

      No Comments on A Lovely Evening

It could have been a drama-filled one, but instead it was nice. Someone was being especially dramatic about everything, but as they fecked off to another part of the pub altogether, it didn’t bother me none. It did bother some of the other members, who were only just having to raise that said person was a bit of a fussy… Read more »

You Can Buy Knife Anything!

      No Comments on You Can Buy Knife Anything!

Knife sword, knife pineapple… knife kitchen towels?! I was at Stitch ‘n Bitch, as I am on my alternate Wednesdays, which I’m sure all of you have clocked by now ’cause I mention it every time. One of our regulars had brought a cake, and had brought paper towels to hand it out on, and a knife to cut it… Read more »

A Very Rogue-ish Day

      No Comments on A Very Rogue-ish Day

Yes, we went and saw Rogue One. Yes, it was good. Very good! I won’t say anything more than that, because I think that spoilers are a right asshole move. If anyone *does* want to talk to me about it, feel free to drop me a line via the contact form. Otherwise, I am going to be refraining from public… Read more »
