Twinkle Twinkle

      No Comments on Twinkle Twinkle

To my annoyance, I cannot currently find many of the stitch markers that I’ve made. I know that several of them broke because the gauge of the wire I was using was too fine, but I plan on experimenting with that in the near future. And, in general, just to make a few more markers. I like making them, so… Read more »

Stay of Cake-ecution

      No Comments on Stay of Cake-ecution

The Cakefest fundraiser was originally supposed to be Friday night. I’ve had dreams I’d forgotten to make cakes, so I even remembered to bring my recipe binder through so I could start looking for what recipe (or two) I felt like doing. I saw today that the event has been bumped off to the seventh, so that means I don’t… Read more »

All the Good Things

Today has: Weather – It rained, and there was even a tiny bit of thunder. Alas, it rained on the school run, but never mind. We didn’t get soaked through, so all was well. Coffee – I’ve actually wanted coffee lately, so it’s been nice having a cup here and there. Dragon Age – I really do like this game,… Read more »

This is My Tired Face

      2 Comments on This is My Tired Face

Though if I’m honest, tired is understating the mark. I hurt, and I am exhausted. Still, I’m trying really hard to step up and let Z rest up and heal as much as possible, and that includes tackling some hard jobs like trying to, le gasp, keep on top of the laundry (which is something we’re never on top of,… Read more »

Emergency Buttectomy

What you see here is the back of Shirley the Sheep. We bought her as a Christmas present for Littlerbit’s first Christmas — because we thought it was hilarious to buy her a plush toy big enough to ride on. Her tail had gotten ripped off at some point in the past *mumble mumble* months, and has been sitting on… Read more »

It’s Actually Happening

      No Comments on It’s Actually Happening

I know, I know, I keep going on about how the socks are going to be the same colour, but it blows my mind for some reason. I guess that I both amaze and amuse easily? I guess also in part because I wonder if it’s going to happen again with the next skein. I suspect that I will be… Read more »

Executive Toddler Strikes Again

I’m going to have to think up a new job title for her soon, seeing how she’s almost out of the toddler phase. We passed on her original title of ‘lazy assistant’ to her cousin W back in the States, one that his mother is using to good effect. I suspect that she’ll be happy to take on this title… Read more »

Drip Drip Drop

Seeing how we’re creeping up on summertime here, the UK remembers its place in the world, and the rain is chucking it down. I would have not minded, except for the school run. So I took pain meds. I put Deep Heat on my stiff knees. I shook out my raincoat and got my head into the right space to… Read more »

Click Click

One of my least redeeming features is when my anxiety pushes past the point of reason. There is a very good chance that I will start screaming and throwing things and just generally flipping out because of the level of mental and physical distress it puts me in. Between a needy toddler and a shouty cat, I kind of started… Read more »

Purrs Like a Kitten

      3 Comments on Purrs Like a Kitten

I ended up fiddling around with a couple of games on my laptop, after a nice long sludge in Diablo III. As much fun as that is, it does get boring after a few hours. I ended up back in Minecraft, and after a bit of fiddling, managed to get the game to remember that it’s supposed to operate off… Read more »
