I Lean

      No Comments on I Lean

Which, I blush to admit, is a terrible pun on Aileen, which is the named storm currently blowing its way into/across the UK. The winds bothered the girls last night enough to wake them up, which means they didn’t get the sleep they needed. Z made sure their windows were sealed tight for tonight rather than leaving them cracked for… 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 »

Oh No

      No Comments on Oh No

My last hairstick broke today, quelle dommage! I’ve got a couple chucked into an Amazon basket for perusal, but I might see what Claire’s has as well. I don’t use them all the all the time, but when it’s warm like it is right now, I tend to find myself reaching for something to twist my hair away from my… Read more »

It Burrrrrns

      4 Comments on It Burrrrrns

I don’t know if it’s the pollen or the air pressure or both, but I have a brutal sinus headache. It’s not a congested thing, but rather, more of a ‘everything in my head is in pain and on fire’ sort of thing, to include my eyes.  It’s not pleasant. R thinks it might get better if/when the thunderstorm we’re… Read more »

So That Happened

      No Comments on So That Happened

First things first — Z’s minor operation went well. I’m doing my best to dote and cover chores so he can rest up over the weekend… which should hopefully go a bit more smoothly because he made the point to get things fairly caught up before we headed out for the ‘party’. I need to try to remember to get… Read more »

Progress in Motion

Today, the glorious racket outside continued as the BT Openreach team continued to get the cabinet on our street installed and upgraded. I’m not exactly sure what they were doing, but it required them digging up part of the road (again). They were repaving it when I went to get Littler from school, and on the way back. I smiled… Read more »

Another Beginning

      No Comments on Another Beginning

Being the one I’ve been nattering on for ages, of course — Littlerbit starting school. Z reports that she happily settled and blew him off when he dropped her off, and she ran to us happy when we arrived to pick her up. She was flagging on the walk back, but not gonna lie, my crippled ass was too. I… Read more »

That Knit Life

      No Comments on That Knit Life

I am curled up in my hoodie right now, and Smallhausen asked me why I was wearing my coat indoors. So I thought it would be funny to get her to take a picture of me in my hoodie knitting. She doesn’t really have the basics of taking photos mastered (or even apprenticed) yet, so I’m just happy there was… Read more »

Fencing For Fun and Profit

      No Comments on Fencing For Fun and Profit

Today’s picture was one of a series of warning signs on a fence at the interchange park. I guess that’s sort of like a strip mall? That doesn’t feel like the quite right analogous term, but anyways. I saw it as I always do when we’re slowly cruising looking for a parking spot, and it was the most vaguely interesting… Read more »

Party Animal

I know I know I know, I’m terrible, off to Xanth, etc. It’s the last day we have the bear though, so hopefully that will spell the end to animal-based attempts at humour. I think that we managed to do a pretty good job of giving the bear a proper weekend here at our house doing what we do, so… Read more »
