Hair Yesterday

      No Comments on Hair Yesterday

It’s definitely hair yesterday, because it’s a pub bathroom over the shoulder picture of it. We don’t have any mirrors around the house that I can do this with, so I figured I might as well while I had access to one. I’ve realised that my hair has actually grown a bit longer than it usually cuts off at, and… Read more »

Phteven the Unicorn

      No Comments on Phteven the Unicorn

Now, I didn’t expect much from a cheap Adopt-a-Unicorn toy, but I didn’t expect the latest incarnation of the Phteven meme. I mean, did the toy designer ever lay eyes on a horse before? Smalls called it adorable, which was sweet of her. Everything about it is so wonky that like… I don’t even know. *laughs* I’ve got it tucked… Read more »

She’s Jerry-rigged

      No Comments on She’s Jerry-rigged

Today has been a surprisingly productive day. I managed to get a really good amount of work done; I’m almost to the first ‘caught up’ point that I want to get to. I should easily get past that tomorrow, barring emergencies or the like. I was surprised to be productive in part because I am still in crash from the… Read more »

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 »

Blanket Monster

      No Comments on Blanket Monster

Today, I did an excellent job of being a blanket monster. I didn’t have any reason to leave the house, and had every reason to be curled up in my chair, so I opted for style and comfort. I didn’t end up being as productive work-wise as I had hoped for, but that’s fine too. In numbers it looked worse… Read more »

351

      No Comments on 351

351 refers to the number of stitches I had to cast on for this. I got lucky and got it right the first time — but I still counted it twice to make very sure that it was right. I’m currently knitting the first row before joining it in the round because it’s going to be easier to get it… Read more »

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Moggy

      No Comments on Your Friendly Neighbourhood Moggy

One of the biggest culture shocks when I moved to the UK is that it’s common wisdom that it’s perfectly fine to let cats be indoor/outdoor. And while, yes, I like seeing cats as I walk about, I still consider it pet abuse. This was something bat commented on as well, to the point of finally getting a friend of… Read more »

My pretties arrived today! My two sets (and bat’s one set) arrived in good order this morning — with one of Z’s Amazon orders. The boxes have been sitting next to me taunting me all day. I’ve had silly things to worry about like, oh, work, and keeping the kids alive, ha ha. I know, not actually silly, but just… Read more »

Quick as a Flash

      No Comments on Quick as a Flash

In the realm of quick dinners, Z decided that taco boats were the winner. And they were! We blasted through the meat as well… as one could expect with an extra person eating it, ha ha. I ended up doing most of the cooking for once, if only so Z could work the dishes at the same time. I was… Read more »
