Progress in Motion

      No Comments on Progress in Motion

There are lots of resurfacing works being done in the village right now, necessitating road closures. This was one of the signs I passed on the school run; the guy in the car behind said sign gave me a very unimpressed look. Sorry mate, there was something new and shiny to catch my eye, and I have a thing for… Read more »

Workaday

One of the other sights on the walk home was this snapped image. There is a house on the main road that has been redoing their garage and front ‘garden’, and something about it was like, whelp, stop I’m recording this. I noticed as I paused there was another workman in the garage having a cuppa, and I shot him… Read more »

Let’s Play ‘Spot the Spider’

He’s in there somewhere. I decided not to indicate where he was in case anyone was arachnophobic; he blends in well enough that it’s otherwise a nice picture of a random bit of outside. No, if I had wanted to put a spider in your face, I would have put up the picture of the dead one I found in… Read more »

Whoopsie

We got a knock on the door this afternoon. It turns out we’d left our garage open overnight, and the neighbour whose front of house is pointed that way wanted to make sure we knew. He waited as long as he did because hey, in a village, not like it was a real risk. And indeed, nobody took anything… though… Read more »

All Shiny and New

I awoke this morning to the sound of construction going on outside. I don’t know *why* exactly, but it made me smile. Why was loud noise gonna make me smile, ha ha. It turns out it was something to smile about — the new streetlights are going in. They’re LED and can be individually adjusted and all sorts of shiny… Read more »

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 »

And Finally, The Sky…

Today, the rains finally came. Well, it rained a bit yesterday, but today seems to have been the day for the rain to come in a way that caused peoples’ headaches to eff off. I still feel fairly awful, but my head pain has been mainly manageable. It probably helped that I went to bed stupid early last night. Like,… Read more »

It’s Full of Stars

My jammies, my head, everything. This cold continues to be brutal, and I think that it’s probably a sinus infection as well. I told Z that we should probably go to the walk-in clinic on Monday and get it looked at if it’s still bad. I’m not counting on it getting better, but I’m also not counting on it being… Read more »

Good Things (Come in Boxes)

      No Comments on Good Things (Come in Boxes)

In a delightfully timely fashion, our new cable box and router arrived — just as we were heading out of the house for a few errands. Our new service won’t be live until Monday, but at least the kit is here. So yay for that. The cabinet only went live this week, and it will nice to finally have decent… Read more »

I Disagree, Pavement

      No Comments on I Disagree, Pavement

Really, since when is any stretch of asphalt a ‘great competitor’? Hrmph! I know, I know, it came from the Sports Day stickers that the village children went home festooned with. I spotted it on the way back from the village shop; I’d needed to pop in to get some washing up liquid. Smallhausen started telling me how it had… Read more »
