Fleeting

      2 Comments on Fleeting

The last couple of school runs, Littler has decided that we were going an alternate route home. I don’t really mind, because yanno, change of scenery. This little flower has been chilling there for at least a couple of weeks now. I suspect it will be gone sooner rather than later as the weather continues to descend into winter. Honestly,… Read more »

It Tricked Me!

      No Comments on It Tricked Me!

The morning started out icy and bright, assuring me that the overnight sub-freezing temperatures promised occurred. I even fancied that it snowed a bit overnight, even though that absolutely wasn’t going to happen. But if I could use it to pry myself out of a nice warm bed to peek out the window and confirm this, then it was a… Read more »

The Happiest Fattytum

This is a picture from the other day that I had forgotten I’d taken of our cat, Poison. Of our two, she’s the one that tends to health problems, so sometimes hides herself away and avoids the world. So it’s always a bit pleasing when she’s feeling enough herself to roll around in a sunbeam, basking us in the adorableness… Read more »

It Looked Better in Person

I stood up to open the window because I thought I had heard thunder, and instead was treated to a lovely little double rainbow. It was only there for a minute or so, and the second rainbow started going before I could get a camera on it, but you can just about see it if you squint. I failed in… Read more »

Going, Going, Gone

I took this picture when we were out for a little trip to the interchange. Smallhausen is in football club this term, and Z thought it would be a good idea to get her some shin guards, so we did that. I also poked my head into Matalan briefly to see if they had any nice looking jeans, and then… Read more »

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 »

Beauty Is

It was a rainy school run, so I grabbed any umbrellas I could find for it. Which means I could only find Smallhausen’s umbrella, as we leave it hanging up in the downstairs toilet. I guess that was fine, as the worst of the rain trying to get in my face was on the way to school. It was still… Read more »

Hair Today

When I got up this morning and was brushing my hair, I liked the way it was catching the light. I tried to take a clever mirror shot, but this at arm’s length ended up working a lot better. I really need to recolour it sooner rather than later, but it takes a lot of spoons to get that done…. Read more »

Underwater

Today has been… wet. There’s been a little bit of thunder, a couple spells of heavy rain, and on the whole has been delightful (except where I had to run through it, ha ha). Forecasters are saying we’re going to get more of the same over the next week, so as long as it doesn’t affect the school run, I’m… Read more »
