Arse Kickery

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting with the Seasonal thing on Diablo III, but so far I am liking it. There’s something about having a structure that makes the game more enjoyable to me; it’s part of why I play lots of Legacy games in The Sims. The real question is going to be if I enjoy doing it… Read more »

The Last Day

      No Comments on The Last Day

Today is the last day of the kiddos being quarantined from school. Tomorrow… is the last day of school. I’m glad that they get to go in, and they’re glad too. And, thankfully, we all held it together today on the whole. I am feeling a bit cruddier, but like… at least tomorrow I just have me to take care… Read more »

All the Waiting

      No Comments on All the Waiting

Today, I was waiting for a package being delivered by Hermes. The last week and change where we have had deliveries from them, they haven’t knocked on the door and we were starting to get a bit ticked. Then Z realised the doorbell batteries had gone flat again, and got those changed before Hermes showed up today. Lo and behold,… Read more »

When Weather Happens

Finally, the snow thing occurred. We woke up with a nice accumulation, and it was a fairly steady fall for most of the morning. We managed to get outside twice as a group for a bit of a play, so that was excellent. I’m probably going to pay for it, but. Even feeling like crap and not wanting to move,… Read more »

She’s a Star

      No Comments on She’s a Star

Today, we went to see the littlest in her first school Nativity. She was one of the kings/wise men, which amounted to standing there looking cute, and occasionally remembering to half-assedly join in with the songs. It wasn’t Shakespeare, but it definitely was cute. I commented to Z on the way home that I sort of wish we’d tried to… Read more »

Gray on Gray

      No Comments on Gray on Gray

While most of my dialecticals have long since switched to nearly Pure British™®, I prefer the spelling of gray with an a. I think that’s in part due to Americans who use the e spelling normally being snotty knobheads, ha ha. But I figured it was the most apt description of this picture — they gray of the sky above… Read more »

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 »
