Saving the Day

      No Comments on Saving the Day

The last bit for Littler’s Halloween costume came in today, so we let her put the bits on and flail around for the camera. I took a stupid number of pictures, but this one did the best of catching the essence of the ‘shoot’. We need to get Smalls to check the fit of her costume as well, but I’m… Read more »

‘Harvest Themed’

      No Comments on ‘Harvest Themed’

Today, Littler’s class had some ‘harvest themed’ events going on during the afternoon session. And while she only attends the morning session on a Friday currently, she was welcome to come back with two guests, so we attended. This picture was from the first activity she took part in, which was dressing up and racing around. I’m not really sure… Read more »

It’s For the Birds

      No Comments on It’s For the Birds

Which is to say, that which is featured in today’s image is. Smallhausen had a school trip to the scout yard as she does pretty much every term, and this was a project they did. It’s got peanuts, raisins, popcorn… all the thing a bird is going to like, right? I just hope that Smalls gets a chance to spot… Read more »

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

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

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 »
